  • Problem with PM reply and forward

    After upgrading to 3.6.3 the following errors discovered in the PM section:

    1) The user details dissapeared (that means name-avatar e.t.c are not displayed)

    2) There is no ability for reply in the message and additionally the forward ability has dissapeared. That means neither the icons of reply and forward are displayed nor anywhere else is there this ability.

    3) Even the thanks post appears to be active is not displayed.

    All previous settings in the admin panel concerning the relative Vbulletin are intact as were previously (I mean in 3.5.4 where they upgraded from).
    It seems that post_bit and post_bit_legacy templates behavior is quite strange.
    I will be appreciated if somebody can give me some guidelines how to resolve this problem.
    Thank you.

    To troubleshoot this, please create a new Style with no Parent set. Now browse the forum using this new style, do you still have the same problems?

      Indeed I have the same problem with any style with no Parent set.
      I am attaching a typical PM where is clearly indicated that the features of
      a) reply
      b) forward
      c) Delete old messages
      d) Handle messages
      Have been dissapeared.
      I just remind that everything was working prior the yesterdays' upgrade.

          I wish also to update this post with the fact that even I also followed the suggestions as they are in unfortunately it seems that they are not aply in my case.
          That means I changed the global.php with an earlier one from 3.5.4 but again I have the same result the reply and forward buttons are not displayed.

            define('CWD', (($getcwd = getcwd()) ? $getcwd : '.'));

            Replaced with:
            // identify where we are
            define('VB_AREA', 'Forum');
            if (defined('VBA_PORTAL'))
            define('CWD', (($getcwd = getcwd()) ? $getcwd : '.'));
