  • Sorry! This forum is not accepting new posts.

    Having a weird issue, although I think it carried over from 3.6.X

    If I am not logged in, and decide to reply to a thread it will request me to login, once completed I get, "Sorry! This forum is not accepting new posts." as an error message.

    The login does complete, however I always have to go to the forum homepage and find the thread I originally tried to respond to.

    Only plugin I have is vb advanced gallery 2.4.1

    Server is Windows Server 2008, Mysql5, PHP 5.2.5 x64

    To troubleshoot this, 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. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

    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.]

    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?
