I Run a pretty large forum (www.themoneyshed.co.uk) (90,000+ posts over 3+ years) and suddenly tonight when I go into it it looks like this
I have no options at the top and obviously that white bar shouldn't be there
If I try and look at a thread by clicking on one I'd be ones on the front page I get
So it doesn't even throw the thread and again no menus
I've tried changing the theme and the same problem occurs
If you access the forum on your phone then the site DOES work on the mobile theme
PLEASE does anyone know what's happened here and how I can fix it !!
Another concern is that I can't even get into the admin page because it just appears empty again unless I am on my phone but I can't seem to get to the page where I could deactivate or remove mods / packages I have running
I've also had my hosting company roll the site back to earlier today when it was working and as you can see the problem is still there.
Can you change to default Curve theme for all users via mobile?
Makes no difference I'm afraid
I'm just not where what's happened
I'm on a laptop at the moment so I can see things a bit more clearly
When I go to www.themoneyshed.co.uk every bit of text near enough under the logo takes me to blog.themoneyshed.co.uk which I assume it is getting from the THE BLOG link which is the ONLY one it has kept from the menus that should be there
Does anyone know the action= or can they tell me what it is for the page where I can go to the installed mods and remove / deactivate them?
currently I have to switch to mobile theme
and then go to
and then it's just showing THIS if I go into the package manager
so I don't seem to have the option to deactivate installed mods not can I see the Menu one that I wonder may be causing this issue
I just don't get what's caused all this to happen and where my menus have gone and also why rolling back to yesterday morning when everything worked hasn't fixed it!!
I'm wondering if I should run repair_settings and use 'remove all hooks'
I assume this would just give me my forum back with the database intact and no mods is that right?
Your package manager shows Tinyportal 1.2 but your site at the bottom is showing simpleportal. Is that your current mod list?
Yes, I only use Simpleportal
I tried to uninstall simpleportal and now when I go to www.themoneyshed.co.uk I get
Warning: require_once(/var/sites/t/themoneyshed.co.uk/public_html/Sources/Subs-Portal.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/sites/t/themoneyshed.co.uk/public_html/index.php on line 58

OK (I won't ask), ;) I see TP isn't installed now, I didn't notice the scrollbar in that huge image you posted.
What exactly do you mean when you said "rolling back to yesterday morning when everything worked hasn't fixed it" ? What exactly did you roll back?
I've got a feeling that you will be advised to upload a fresh set of files and then reinstall all your mods, but I could be wrong.
Thanks for your reply Lurkalot
I did indeed so as you said and followed the instructions on this site for uploading a fresh set of files after I had taken some backups.
It was actually quite painless it's just a case of getting all the tweaks and mods back up to speed now but at least my users can talk again on the site!
You're welcome. Glad it worked out for you, at least it's a good time to update all your mods to the latest versions. ;)
I'm nearly back to how things should be but I've got quite a unique problem now
There seems to be some kind of delay on the forum.
Not in terms of usage as people can post and reply etc absolutely fine but in terms of things updating.
If someone posts a new post and I read that post it doesn't go from my 'unread posts' list for a good minute
If a new member needs manually approving I approve that member but the 'you have one member to approve' notice at the top doesn't go for a minute
If I make an alteration in a mod such a change a menu title of something I do it, hit save but it doesn't appear for another minute.
Any idea what's going on here please?
is your server using a caching system?
is your server using a caching system?
I'm not sure, How would I find out?
The server / hosting setup hasn't changed for the last 3+ years.
The only change was on Tuesday when I did a fresh install of SMF around the existing database.
