Sorry to hear that. Do you have a back up?

Yes but not a current......I made a lot of changes today and when I added the share script I lost everything from this point on.........if I knew where to go to fix the board page I could find the error and and undo the script.........I hope I am making some sense.........

ENTERTAINMENT - FUN - LEON GUNNER - ETC.
  LEON GUNNER AND BO OBAMA -   

I lost everything from this point on.......

I am a little confused what you did, but have you restored the edited template file to its original state and seen if that resolves the issue?

Hi, how or what did you edit. Is it the board description in the admin CP?

If so, and you can't get into the Admin section to change the edit you made. If you have phpMyAdmin access, look in the boards table and remove the description there.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

I'm wondering if this is related to a mod judging by the code used?

Where or how did you add that code in the first place? ???

BTW, please use [code] tags when adding code. Makes it easier to follow. :)

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

Then you need to look in the database to fix this. If you have phpMyAdmin access to the database look in the Boards table for that board and edit the description to remove it all.

Do backup your database first just in case. (How do I backup my database?)

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

You need to edit the board description in the database. What's happening is that there's a character limit for the board description and the code you added is probably cut of and incomplete. Which is what is messing up the display on the pages you are viewing this on.

If you go into phpMyAdmin to the "boards" table. Change the view to "Browse" and locate that board. Then click on the "Edit" link and remove all of the text in the "description" field for that board. You can always re-add the description in the Admin CP.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.
