Ah... I guess that might do it, if doing that screwed the template, somehow.

One way to find out...

Try renaming the file(s) that you edited and replace them with virgin versions and see if it sorts it.

zarzonis

i forgot to mention some width and height modifications on my theme. nothing else

"Something in the template's gone sour" says that some edit, somewhere, has gone screwy.

With PHP, that can simply mean that there's a bloody comma in the wrong place, or something THAT trivial, sadly.

You could always replace all of your files with virgin copies.

Obviously, you'll lose your edits and things, doing that, though. :(

Maybe try replacing everything in "Sources", first, to see how that goes?

Read my sig, first, though, so you're covered. ;)

if i backup my database can i delete all files and reupload it? if yes can i restore the database without losing any post of members?

Illori

you dont need to do anything to the database, just the files.

zarzonis

ok, but if i delete all files and reupload i won't lose anything right?

kat

All members/posts will be as-was. :)

Mods'll get trashed and will need to be reinstalled. :(

Illori

nothing but your mods that are installed but do NOT delete any file not included in the large upgrade package.

kat

DON'T OVERWRITE SETTINGS.PHP!!

Plus, you don't want to upload install.php (Or upgrade.php if you use the large upgrade).

zarzonis

i replaced the folder sources but still nothing. i'm going to replace all files right now. i must donwload the big upgrade from the download section and just the script? or manually delete every file via ftp and then upload from scratch? or replace every file without delete the previous ones?

:) Read my last post CAREFULLY.

zarzonis

ok thank you. i used the large uprgade and still replacing. should i upload the sql upgrades from the large upgrade?

kat


zarzonis

now every file that has been replaced has a "~". now i have every file twice. for example i have subs.php and subs.php~ the second is the older one? is there any problem with that?

kat

You can ignore those.

They're backups made by some mods, when they install.

zarzonis

ITS WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! finally my forum is working properly again. thank so much guys for your interest. i'll mark this topic as solved.
