Update from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6 / Problems

Postby onebad92vr4 » Thu Nov 19, 2009 2:30 pm

After updating from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6, now, when new posts are made on the board, they do not appear under the View Active Topics link. Actually, any posts made by ME (an administrator) as a Global Announcement will show in this area, but any other types of posts do not appear here. Please help??? Thanks!

Yes they *fixed* a very old bug that now actually looks at the forum flag set for active topics. You need to go into the ACP -> Forums -> select forum(s) -> Edit and set the following field to Yes for each forum:

Display active topics:
If set to yes topics made to this forum will be shown in the active topics list.

Before it ignored the No setting and displayed them anyway, in the new version it no longer ignores the setting so if yours are all set to No, which was the default, then they will not display until you change it to Yes. :)

that "active topics" scenario is gonna hit every 3.0.5 > 3.0.6 admin I would have thought

so good to know :)

:mrgreen: amazing to see yet another browse option > the new unread posts link is on top of, new posts and active topics - compare that with phpBB2 :D

Hi I am having the same problem with an upgrade from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6
Have done as directed and turned it on in ACP for all Forums but still no View active topics show .. do i need to clear the cache or anything ?

Cheers

i don't think this is considered a "problem" but i wasn't sure where else to put this. can anyone tell me what exactly this means or is this some type of bug?

i don't understand what "VersionCheck Force Update" means... thanks in advance.
