  • Upgrade gone wrong

    Upgraded to v 3.6.9 today, seemed to go well but then I made the mistake of responding the the "templates updated" messages in the CP.

    What is happening is the if condition="" functions are not working, at all. Example:

    <if condition="$show['member']">
    <else />

    So what I get is when a member is logged in, there's a "welcome" message and a login box, both. When logged out, neither show.

    Tried reverting, re-configuring the navbar template, nothing appears to be working. Has anyone got any ideas off the top of their head?

    Fortunately it's just the one template so far.

    Have you tried a conditional based on usergroups?

    <if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, X, Y, Z)">
    That is to show it to certain usergroups.

      Thank you for your reply, no, I haven't. The conditionals are just not working. Example, logged in member gets:

      <!-- breadcrumb, login, pm info -->
      <table class="tborder" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="1" border="0" width="95%" align="center">
          <td class="alt1" width="100%">
              <td style="border: 1px solid #6F420D;" valign="top" nowrap>
              <div class="smallfont">
                  <strong>Welcome, (username).</strong><br>
                  You last visited: Today at <span class="time">05:08 PM</span>
                  <br><a href="private.php">Private Messages</a>: Unread 0, Total 27.
          <else />
              <td class="alt2" nowrap style="padding:0px">
              <!-- login form -->
              <form action="login.php?do=login" method="post" onsubmit="md5hash(vb_login_password, vb_login_md5password, vb_login_md5password_utf, 0)">
      (login form here)
              <!-- / login form -->
      <!-- / breadcrumb, login, pm info -->
      Note the hanging "<else />".

      Re-uploading and re-upgrading all, if that will work. I'm sure I did something wrong.

        Thanks again Nick, but problem fixed. I first did a re-install, it didn't work.

        Turns out there are three instances in adminfunctions_template.php, it was not finding "<else />". Don't know how it got corrupted, but I opened it, inspected, and re-saved it, all is well. Probably something I did, and I'm sure this is not a bug or error in the release.
