An Error Has Occurred!

What is the fix?

It was working until I logged off, now I can't even logon to my own forum!


Help!
That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Are you using a custom theme? Did you continue the 2.0.14 patch installation with errors in the custom theme?

If your custom theme index.template.php
Find something like

<input type="hidden" name="hash_passwrd" value="" />

Add after

<input type="hidden" name="', $context['session_var'], '" value="', $context['session_id'], '" />

Default everything

PHPMyAdmin says: 
PHP version: 5.6.30       
That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Looking at your site the edit didn't happen on your index.template.php of the default theme.
Add that edit.

No errors on running update.
How do I check the edits if I can't login?
Can I roll back?

Getting a bit concerned now!

you should be using FTP for file edits. you dont need to be logged into the forum to use FTP.

If you get the patch file
You can upload it to http://www.smfhacks.com/smf-package-parser.html and that will give you the edits.

OK, will overwrite any personal  settings?

My custom themes are giving the same error on login as above even though the update showed no errors and the line before </form>'; has been correctly altered there is deff something else wrong,
I found if I set the default forum theme to smf default, I could still login in and then set a custom theme which works fine it just means the smf default theme is always the login one,
there must be something that didnt get altered in the custom theme's that did get done in the default one.

Illori

then you should start your own topic for your own issue so we can look into your issue further.

ModelBoatMayhem


OK, found a fix .... well bit of a lucky work around!

On my home PC, I was still logged in  ( with the 'Forever' option! ),  got into Admin, installed the 2.0.14 patch and everything was OK.
I re-run the patch install and noticed that at the very bottom of the file list there is an option to apply to various Themes, by default, these are Un-Ticked!

Ticked the boxes, installed OK - no errors now!

That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

I posted in here because it was exactly the same problem as the original post  ::)

Illori

it does not matter if the same issue or not, this topic belongs to someone else and is marked solved. please start your own topic.

I followed this advice, and now almost everything works.
The user panel does not work yet, login from there.

If you want to do some tests to help me, hxxp:www.internationalsimracing.com/forum/index.php?action=forum [nonactive] and try it yourself.
I'm not practical of these things, so I'm very sorry and overwhelmed by this thing.
If I go back to the previous version everything works correctly.
Please help me.

... first time I've experienced any problems from an official SMF patch.... poor Beta testing?!
....  :(
That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Kindred

Worked fine for our tests and has been in use on this site for a few weeks now.

And I disagree with sir osis' suggestion. You should not "stay with 2.0.13"
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.<br /><br />"Loki is not evil, although he is certainly not a force for good. Loki is... complicated."

Hmmmm.... "I see no ships!"

Should you be more concerned that this patch is locking some of your customers out?!


That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Illori

we cant patch every custom theme that is out there for a security fix we put in the patch. it is up to the admin to apply the fix to their custom themes so it will work for them. they are not actually locked out of their forums.

ModelBoatMayhem


I'm actually using the default theme with  no MODS!
OK, not actually locked out  but can't log back in ... what's the difference?!
That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Illori

that is because something has modified your theme. you have been advised on how to fix the issue already.

ModelBoatMayhem

That's my firm opinion.... but what do I know?!

Illori

something had to have modified your theme at some point to cause this issue otherwise it would not be happening.

Hee, hee.  Horatio Nelson should be on the team. ;D

For the record, Sir Osis never installs patches on his production forums until they've been out for at least a month or two (for reasons which are obvious).  I upgraded from 2.0.11 to .13 just recently.  Up until a couple days ago, .13 was the latest and greatest.  It isn't any worse now than it was then, and it's certainly better than .14.  While other members of the team may disagree, I have no problem recommending that forum owners having problems with .14 revert to .13, and stay there until the bugs in .14 are fixed and .15 is released.

Thank you Sir Osis. I didn't know I could uninstall

I had the same problem and had to try 4-5 times to log in. And my forum is standard (except smilies   ;D ) I don't know anything about mods and what they are etc.

I thought everything was okay in .14 but only until I logged out

So I uninstalled and now my forum is working excellent in 2.0.13 - I am a happy camper again
