  • "ARG: Undefined" appearing for guests


    When someone is surfing my site as a guest, they get this message at the top.

    I imagine I have to fill in the name of my site somewhere, but I'm not sure where.

    you can change the name in admin cp>vbulletin settings>site name /url / contact details

      Tried that. Forum has been online since 2005, it's always showed the name. I reverted all the templates today, maybe that did something.

        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 and any htaccess files.]

        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?
