Thread: Possible Error across all CMS versions

    Default Possible Error across all CMS versions

    Having tried all the different portal versions now. A while ago I found what I think is an error in all the Portals out there. This goes for all vBindex versions and vBadvanced versions also from what I've seen. Unless I've missed something! (Please note: If you uploaded the portal index file to your forums folder instead, this problem does'nt happen). But the installation instuctions always tell you to upload the portal index to your ROOT directory.

    OK, anybody who has followed the instuctions to the letter when installing vBadvanced. Putting the portal index file in your ROOT directory outside your forums folder, should try this little test.

    Go into your USERGROUP settings and make your board so all Guests cannot view the forum or posts etc. Then logout from your board, close your browser and re-visit your portal page. The portal page will then re-direct you to the LOGON page were you either logon or choose the option to register from there.

    But if you get the same error I was getting it persumes the logon page is located in the ROOT directory also, meaning you cannot logon and most other links there are also broken becuase they point to the ROOT.

    Let me know if you get the same results to see if this is a genuine error if you make your board private to guests.

    Edit your 'STANDARD_ERROR' template and add $vboptions[bburl]/ in front of each link and the form action there.

    Brian, I'm using vBulletin 2 here mate, would that be the same for that version as 3 like you mentioned above.

    Or would I have to do something different for vBulletin 2.3.7

    Can you take a look at my standarderror template for vbulletin 2 below and make the necessary changes for me to copy back, becuase I don't really see any code in the template that looks like a link.

    Code:
    {htmldoctype}
    <html>
    <head><title>$pagetitle</title>
    $headinclude
    $headinsert
    </head>
    <body>
    $header
    
    &nbsp;</td></tr></table>
    
    <table width="{tablewidth}" height="50%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="{pagebgcolor}" align="center">
    <tr>
    	<td>
    
    <table cellpadding="{tableouterborderwidth}" cellspacing="0" border="0" bgcolor="{tablebordercolor}" {tableouterextra} width="70%" align="center"><tr><td>
    <table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="{tableinnerborderwidth}" border="0" {tableinnerextra} width="100%">
    <tr>
    	<td bgcolor="{tableheadbgcolor}" width="100%"><normalfont color="{tableheadtextcolor}"><img src="{imagesfolder}/vb_bullet.gif" align="absmiddle" alt="vBulletin" border="0">
    	<b>vBulletin Message</b></normalfont></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" width="100%"><normalfont>$errormessage</normalfont></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td></tr></table>
    
    <p align="center">$forumjump</p>
    
    	</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    
    
    <table bgcolor="{pagebgcolor}" width="{tablewidth}" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" border="0">
    <tr>
      <td>
    
    $footer
    
    </body>
    </html>

    I don't remember what changes would be necessary for vB2, and we don't have any products that work with nor do we provide support for anything related to vB2.

    Ok, no problem. I did finish up moving my portal file to my forums folder anyway to get around the problem, rather than having it in my Root were all the problems were steming from. And just using a re-direct html in my root to point to the portal.

    Anyway, still glad this got posted as a fix for vbadvanced and vbulletin 3

    Gary, is that an old version of vBPortal you're running?

    Ops, That should have said vBindex not vBPortal when I was adding the tag in the footer. As it didn't even come with a vbindex version in the footer template by default.

    I'll change that in a Moo
