When you say you installed again completely from fresh did the registration work then correctly on a blank install?

Well, i dont tested it, i have to install it again to test this, because i deleted replaced some tables of the new forum. But i havent replaced a table, which you can say that this have any effekt about the registration images. Can you tell me pls, where the images are saved on the webspace, or are they read from "simplemachines"?. Im very noob on this thing.


thx

I'm not sure what you mean be replaced a table, if you've mixed and matched table from different databases then you can/will run into issues.

All images are stored locally.  The registration image is generated on the fly based on random letters, background image and fonts stored in your default theme folder.  Index.{language}.php has a baring on it's generation as well.

I made the following things:

Quote
1.
I had the old tables from my old forum, which was full of topics and posts.
And i had the new one, which was empty.

Quote
2.
Now i deleted for example the "boards-table" from the empty forum and renamed the "boards-table" from the old forum in the new ones name!

Quote
3.
I made this with every table i needed, only settings, sessions and themes i was unsure.

Quote
4.
Now the new Forum was filled, and like my old one, also i can enter registration now, which i cant before. Only the reg-images are empty

thx

Well it would have been to import the whole 'old' db, than work with limited tables from the old one.  But if it's worked for you, then that's great.

As for images you might have to run repair_settings.php to make sure all paths are correct.  Or check to make sure the images are actually on your server.  What happens when you try to access them directly, or right-click and choose properties for their path.

Is that theme fully compatible with SMF 2.x series?

Okay have you made any changes to the templates?  Or if installed certain mods, have you made the manual changes to that theme to make sure it's got all required code.

But 'we' are not sure if it ever worked?  But the fact the default works, indicates and issue somewhere with the theme.  Does it work in other themes (Babylon)?

Now i know what the problem was. The "settings-table" was the problem, if i replace it, i get the same error as before.

Could i delete another "Admin-Account" just from the database, because during the forum it´s not allowed?

Another problem is that, the old topics are always shown as new topics, equal if i enter them or not. So i forgot to replace the table which include this option and i dont know what table it is.


thx

Well you can try deleting that theme and re-installing it?

I don't understand what you mean or trying to do by wanting to delete an Admin account?  That wont affect settings.

I reinstalled it, but it dont work, i use classic now, it´s good aswell.

The Administration-Account is another question incidentally, in another contex.

Well it looks like an issue with that theme then, and I'd take it up with the author or try the support/comment thread.  Other might having similar issue and/or have solutions.

You don't have to delete Admin accounts, just take away Admin membergroup and they'll be normal users.

Now the nature of how you've done the mixing and merging of two databases I'm not sure what to suggest.

Well, it works fine now, only the language settings of the board will reset every login, but thx for your help. I made this because i had to do this. Before that i installed the forum a few times and filled it with every topics and settings. Then i got every time another problem with the board. And so i reinstalled and fullfilled it with everything, so i got crazy. Now i am a bit wiser than before. I know now that i had only to replace the settings-table^^. And i know more now about the working between the Board and the database.

thx

Well if the language 'resets' each login, you need to change that in the accounts language settings.  Probably doesn't mate the forum wide language settings.  Or just disable everyone's ability to set their own language will fix it as well.

Do you have English and English-utf8 installed?  But did that fix your issue?
