[SOLVED] 'No posts exist for this topic' after upgrade

Post by custmguru® »

URL: http://forums.s-series.org

Template(s) used: modified subsilver (header format mostly)

Any and all MODs:
  • Quick reply
    thread preview
    extra page mod
    there may be a few more but i dont remember them


Do you use a port of phpBB: don't think so

Version of phpBB: just upgraded to 2.0.15

Version of PHP: 4.3.9

Which database server and version: mysql 4.0.17

Host: ripcon.net

Did someone install this for you/who: no

Is this an upgrade/from what to what: upgraded from 2.0.14 to 2.1.15

Is this a conversion/from what to what: no

Have you searched for your problem: yes, no similar issues found

If so, what terms did you try:
  • No posts exist for this topic
    upgrade problems
    upgrade no posts exist


State the nature of your problem: getting a 'No posts exist for this topic' error message on some of my multi-page threads. There were no problems earlier, and it happened after the upgrade. I have tried substituting other viewtopic pages with no change

Do you have a test account for us: none needed. problem persists whether logged in or not.

If so, please have it ready in case a Support Team Member asks for it.

as an example, this thread is showing 118 pages.

http://forums.s-series.org/viewtopic.php?t=39032

i have no problem accessing this thread until around post #2230 where im finding the last post which is on page 112. everything after is blank.

http://forums.s-series.org/viewtopic.ph ... start=2230

so what im seeing is 6 pages being called for that do not exist.

in your ACP, go to forum admin >> management, there on the right of your topics should be "Resync"

I found quite a bit of topics on this. Maybe you should have a look through them, go to search,

search for this exactly as I type it "posts and exist and topic"

minus the quote marks

select search for all terms

search only in the support forum

I created the problem when i changed my user ID #

the forum couldn't attach my posts to my user ID so all the posts i made weren't being able to be pulled up. i changed the user id back to what it was and it fixed it all...

the problem can also (and usually happens when) you delete a user from the database and not through the Admin Control Panel. the same problem happens, where phpBB can't attach the posts to a user causing it to find less posts available that whats really there.

That sounds right. I used one of those mass-pruning mods to clear out inactive users, and that really created some havoc with the page counts.

I'm getting this now on a very popular thread on my board. It probably happened when I was deleting spammers from my memberlist using the multi-delete mod my sysadmin installed. People seem to be able to still post to the thread, but not from the last page (where the no posts error comes up), only by accessing the page before and posting from there.

I've tried resync, but no luck. If there are any hints anyone has, I'd appreciate it too.

eta: i also tried searching, but keep getting a blank page instead of results.
