If you know exactly what you changed you could just do the reverse, but I'm guessing you don't or else you would have done that already.

isn't there any other way of fixing it other than to uninstall all the mods then reinstalling each manually?

Actually, it's worse than that...  if you just replace the Themes folder, you will loose the modsifications to your template files....   HOWEVER, all of the other modifications that the package made will still be there, so you will either have to re-apply each mod, manually into the themese that you want, or re-upload the whole board (Themes and Sources, specifically) and then reapply the mods in the package manager.


Please note that almost every mod will ONLY apply itself to the default theme... thing slike the shop mod and the member map will not add buttons to any other theme automatically... those mods will have to be applied manually...


Number one rule when doing things to your site:  ALWAYS take a backup before making modifications!

And as I said before, it's not just the mods that are the problem, your whole default theme is in terrible shape.

I don't know what you've done to your default theme, but lots of the images are missing. Do what daniel15 recommended, and upload the entire themes/default folder again.
That will remove your mods, so you will have to reinstall them.

Next time don't edit the default theme! :)
Have you done that yet?

Download the 1.0.7 install package from the downloads page.
Uncompress it on your computer. If you don't have a zip program try 7-zip
Using FTP upload the theme/default folder and all of the files inside to the themes/default folder on your server. If you don't have a FTP program try filezilla.

Your default theme isn't working! That's why it need to be fixed.

1.1 is obviously later than 1.0.7, however 1.1 (RC2) is not yet completely stable. You can upgrade if you like. That might remove your troubles. Just remember to backup everything first.

Using the shoutbox depends on which shoutbox mod you installed.

Code: [Select]
Table 'nextgene_smf4.smf_topics' doesn't exist
File: /home/nextgene/public_html/forum/Blocks/PortalNews.php

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum files are currently at version SMF 1.0.7, whereas your database is at version SMF 1.0.2. It is recommended that you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.

Hmm never mind about yabbse, i was getting you confused with another topic.

Check in your database to see if the table smf_topics exists.
