And SMF version is 1.1.3.

I had 1.1.4 but i went back to 1.1.3 because not many mods were working for the new version.

1- 1.1.4 is a SECURITY update. I suggest that you upgrade.
2- All of my mods continued to work when I upgraded to 1.1.4 using the package manager.

You still have not given us a URL so we can look at the problem.

he obviously replaced installed file in the packages folder...

If you use the package manager to apply the 1.1.4 upgrade, then all your mods should be fine.

But if i update it and then i try to use a mod and it says version is incompatible.....What can i do??

What about the main problem,"Preview"??

I got your url...   can you give me a login to test the post preview?

as for mods...   don't you already have enough?
but if you really need to install more, you can use "&emulate_version=1.1.3" at the end of the URL...

and seriously... is the ability to add more mods to your system more important than the potential security issue ?  (especially since the mods will eventually be updated to 1.1.4 anyway)

1)An email must have been sent to you with the login details.

2)Well,i want to make the forum very good.
What do u mean by this "you can use "&emulate_version=1.1.3" at the end of the URL..."...What this will do??What URL???

3)Offcourse it's important to have a "correct" system....But i want to have the mods,too.....

email or PM?   If you sent me an email, there is a good chance that it got thrown out by my spam filter.

I got a PM with your site url... but I don't have a login to test it.

&emulate_version=1.1.3 has been discussed in nearly every thread from users complaining that mods for 1.1.3 don't work on 1.1.4 (and previously on the mods for 1.1.2 not working on 1.1.3 and previous to that for mods for 1.1.1 not working on 1.1.2, etc etc and so on.)

I will note that a "good" forum does not depend on what mods you have installed... and every mod you install introduces another possible point of failure that we at SMF did not specifically test when we released the SMF base package. And each mod you install may interact poorly with previous mods...

You could do a search yourself. In Re: Mods for 1.1.4 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=198163.msg1260406#msg1260406) Kindred explains how to use it.

this resolved or do you still require assistance?
Title: Re: "Preview Topic" Problem
Post by: Kindred on October 30, 2007, 11:15:26 AM
nope...   still a problem.
(Sorry, pspuser, this almost slipped off my radar)

Something screwed up the variable for the preview... and I'm not sure which mod might have done it...

can you attach a copy of your script.js file?
