my admin index disappeared!

Post by ryan1918dotcom »

I haven't edited or changed anything, and I go and login to my admin panel, and the left side appears but the right side is blank, just the main index though, everything else works fine..

What could have happened?

"What could have happened" is indeed a question for discussion but on the assumption that you actually want to cure this I have moved it to the Support forum.

One possibility is that for some reason there is a failure for your board to "phone home" for the version check.
Some hosts put a block on such connections and if yours has done so then there could be quite a time elapse between the attempt and the point it would normally come up with the "could not connect" error

One way you could test this would be to open the file templates/yourstyle/admin/index_body.tpl in a text editor and after making a backup remove the call for the version check
<h1>{L_VERSION_INFORMATION}</h1>

{VERSION_INFO}

Does this mean that every time the Forum is called from a browser the Forum connects to phpbb.com or somewhere else to confirm that it is a valid copy of the software?

no , it means that everytime you log into the admin panel, it trys to connect to the phpbb.com server to see if there is a new version available and gives you a message in the admin panel index page to that effect.

There really wouldn't be a valid version, because you can mod it to your liking and it doesn't cost anything, but I'm going to try that and see what happens.

Everytime I login to the admin panel I get this in the index right side.
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 20971520 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in functions.php on line 528


ideas?
