Ok thanks that worked. I figured I might need to change it for me, but did not see it under my settings. Since the copy is set as the default, and I have the only account currently, my users shouldn't have to worry about it, correct?
That got rid of the error at least. I made a copy, made the copy the default, and then edited the copy. I tried all 3 fields individually, and then tried changing all 3 together. It says they were updated, but it still says Support Topic.
Sorry I know I've seen this before as I have changed this on another forum I administer. But I can't remember how, and search isn't helping. I want to change the link on each download where you click to get the discussion topic.. to "Click for discussion" or something, instead of "Support Topic". Thanks.
I figured it out.. not a bug with this app or anything.. just was triggering it. There was an issue with my .htaccess file. There is a setting in SEO that if checked, requires additional line of code in the .htaccess file. I added that code, and everything is working properly now. Thanks for your attention.. if nothing else maybe someone else will have this issue down the road and this post can help them.
I have used this portal for many years with no issue. Now I am having an issue and it seems to be tied to having the portal as the default app in IPS. The portal works fine, but if I select it as the default app in initdata file, I get the following weird gibberish when clicking the "forums" link on my ipb installation. Any ideas? I have opened tickets with both IPB and my host, and neither can figure out what is causing it. IPB figured out it was being caused by portal being the default app. They reset it back to forums as the default, and I don't see the error. They suggested it was an issue with my host. The host claims its a coding issue, possibly with one of my .htaccess files. But I haven't changed either of them in quite some time.
Anyway, running out of ideas. Just hoping maybe you have seen this before. I upgraded the portal in case that was an issue, but it did not help. Also, initially IPB support upgraded the forums thinking that might help, but it did not. Currently running IPB 3.4.4 and Portal 1.4.1. Both were upgraded AFTER the error was occurring, and neither upgrade resolved the issue.
Here is the gibberish that displays when I hit "forums" tab:
I have a question.. I dunno if it's leftover from an earlier installation or what.. but I have the app, and a hook that's titled "stop forum spam". I checked the setting on both, and both seem to have some of the same setting.. but the settings are different. Like, Deny registration if IP is found in the SFS DB more than X number of times. It's listed as 1 on the app itself, and 2 on the hook. Any idea why there would be duplicate settings?
The hook seems to be updated today.. the same day I upgraded the app.
