  • Problems with searching and images

    For some reason searching, avatars and CAPTCHA images have just stopped working. They worked fine at the weekend but yesterday afternoon just stopped working. Avatars and CPATCHA just show as broken images, if you search for something that isnt in the database get the standard sorry no matches messages but if search for something that is there just get a blank white page, same is happening with new posts and getdaily.

    Runnin 3.6.4 and to my knowledge nothing has changed since this started happening, anyone got any clue what could be causing it?

    First, reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file.

    Next, disable all plugins.

    Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it. Do you have the same problem?
