I got it to work by putting in a & instead of a ;.

When you turned on SEF in Mambo, you were supposed to rename a file from htaccess.txt to .htaccess. 

When you turned it off, did you change that back?


 :-X ermm No. So I have done what you sugested - went into the folder - renamed the file to 123.htaccess, went back to the site - reloaded and its still doing it.
Is there something I have to do to the database/joomla or SMF to make it do what you said> &

sorry - I did not explain it properly - I went to the root - and found the file .htacess I then renamed it to 123.htacess thus stopping the 'safe urls' I will keep trying to find out whats gone wrong. thanks, the renaming of the .htaccess to an alternative has not done anything yet


I had some problems with the new version.
A: I cant access any PM's. I just get "Unable to load the 'pm_above' template."
B: When I go to modify the index page, I get "Unable to load the 'edit_browse' template."
C: I cant change the news section (otherwise, where is it in the admin panel)

  • You're either using an oout of date theme/template

Quote2. Do you use tabbed browsing? And Quick Reply by any chance, if so, only use quick reply in one tab, use normal reply in all others.

I am newbee at all of this and done know where to set these options - will this make a difference - as I can not create any new posts, or edit or reply -
All forums come up with
An Error Has Occurred!
The board you specified doesn't exist;board=2.0.0

Many thanks for your support

I'm having a similar problem to this.  Thread here if anyone has any ideas please?  :)


1: I did replace the files and ran the upgrade script
2: I used Gg-Gt Chameleon Theme by koni which is made for 1.1

I think so. Here is the forum link:

Also, where is the news/newsletter section?


I upgraded to 1.1rc1 today, from 1.05.

I have this post from a member using safari:

QuoteOkay, so normally I look in my unread replies and I click on the 'new' button with takes me to a message post I've already seen.  Normally when I click on the new button next to the message it will load the page and take me to the first unread reply on that post.  Now when I click new it loads the post as if I had not read the message at all - so it is at the first post.  I hope this makes sense.

I have not used personally used the unread messages thing, so I am not sure of the action.  This member is a mod, and has been on the board since the beginning.

any thoughts?

I couldn't find any references to this problem in my search for "calendar error", so in case it hasn't been brought to your attention before, I thought I should mention it here... The week number display in the calendar is wrong. It becomes very apparent when you look at December and see that week one comes before New Year's.


For those that are tracking the URL problem that leads to a false  DB error, I found a solution that works for me.

In Admin > server settings:

If I put I get the DB error when viewed.

i hate this release

i just uploaded all the files of RC1

and now when i try to install any package in RC1.

it gives this error

Error in Package Installation

At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

NOT EVEN a SINGLE MOD, i am able to install

i hate this
SMF 1.05 was 1000 times  better
now i got to upload all files again


You must be one of the few who do not like 1.1rc. As the package manager suggests maybe you are not using the right package? Upgrading generally goes without issue and is simple as uploading the upgrade package and running upgrade.php.

There is nothing written in stone that you must use 1.1rc anyway obviously. I personally would recommend that anyone upgrade to 1.1rc.



Best ever, I just installed to a new site. Thanks all

anything about why i can't send newsletters to groups anymore? it shows only non-post-based groups to me

Admin -> Permissions -> Settings
Enable post-based group permissions (or something like that)

no. that's not it. 1) that is already enabled and 2) i dont want set any permissions, i want to send newsletters TO post-based groups, like I did in beta3 and before

any comments on why I can't send newsletters to groups anymore?


I tried to search if this problem was reported here or not.

I upgraded from 1.0.1 to 1.1 RC1, had few problems in the beginign but all went fine.

The only problem I noticed so far is that the spell check doesn't work anymore. I get no message, it is just that when I press the spell check button nothing happens.

As redone suggested, you might try making sure that the package you are trying to upload was written/updated for 1.1 rc1 and not for 1.0.5.  There are plenty of changes from one to the other that would throw the errors that you mentioned.  The same thing goes for themes - many of them will install/work, but will give errors in unexpected places.
