1- do not use the full install. That will overwrite things that you don't want overwritten.

2- you could... although you'd have to go change all of the settings, paths and urls to point to your new location and you'd lose all of your avatars and attachments.

I did a full upgrade and the format editor is still gone.

I now can no longer search my site for info without getting a database error (picture above).

I don't know what else to do.

I didn't know if I change the name of the old folder on the my webhost server and then create a new folder with the same name and install to there, if I could set it up to attach to the database with all things there?

When you "inspect element" browser-side, do you see remnants of the code? What's your URL, I'll check for you

Could any of this be because I updated my PHP to 7.2?

Ok, so it has nothing to do with PHP.

I'm assuming it's a bug. I logged in, made such WYSIWYG editor was enabled. All settings related to WYSIWYG editor are checked, yet for some reason it's not appearing. It has to be a bug related to 2.1.

A second suggestion would be to find a random theme, install it, and see if the WYSIWYG editor appears.

any errors in the browser console?

I'm assuming it might be the SCEditor

Any thoughts on why the database cannot be accessed by the search function?

Thanks!

I don't think it has anything to do with the database either

Database is accessed via cpanel

So I am thinking about just starting a new forum board. Do you think I should go through the trouble of moving all the active pieces over to a new forum, or are these challenges fixable?

Again, thanks for your help!

Okay - following your advice, I added a 2.1 RC1 compatible theme to the board and nothing has happened. The Post Editor is still not present, so I am defaulting to your idea it might be a bug.

Is there a way I can RESIGN in to the database, as it appears to be asking?

Thanks!

I just did a brand new build and here is the result (picture attached).

Is this a database issue now? Do I need to create an all new database? Is it possible the new installer package is broken?

I can't explain this at all. I have two boards - this one which I run for my office and another that I use for gaming. The gaming board is running great - all of my mods (none of which I do for my business board) working great!

Thanks for the help!

no... that issue is not a database issue.

it means that your theme paths and urls are incorrect.

Thank you! I corrected this challenge on the new board, but still no Post Editor on a brand new install.

Also, if I do a search on the new forum it gives me the same database error - so I either have a corrupted database, or there is some setting I need to update to give the forum software permission to access the data...which it seems it does seeing as you can see the posts!

Anyway, I will wait a little longer for any advice before I just create a new database on my web server and build the site one more time.

Thanks everyone!
