  • Error after install "No Thread Specified..."

    I just upgraded from 3.5.8 to 3.6.8 patch 1

    I opened my forum, looked ok - but when I try to open the "Last Post" - just from clicking on the thread title link - I get the error

    "No Thread Specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

    HELP!! I am trying to get my forum back up asap for my client - can anyone help!!?

    We'll need to start with some basic troubleshooting steps.

    First, re-upload 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. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

    [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

    If that didn't solve the problem, then please 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. Now check again.

    If you still have the same problem please let me know.

      We just got the same problem going from 3.6.4 to 3.6.8 p2.

      Anyone found the right answer?

      What's missing from the link to the new page after creating the post is the actual thread id itself - the anchor to the post is there, but no thread information. So - WHERE is that thread information created/captured/played with - in which template etc?

      thanks, Grant
