Please describe your problem. Well, I just updated my board from 3.0.4 to 3.0.6 using your update package. Surprisingly, everything went very well. I was expecting my computer to explode and lose everything on my board. Hahaha.

Anyway, since the update, everything seems fine EXCEPT the Active Topics section is down. It always comes up with "No suitable matches were found."

How do I fix this? Also, thank you very much for making the update process as convenient AND simple as possible. I very much appreciate it!

There was a bug in the previous versions whereby the option was on regardless of the admin panel option. This has now been fixed and so the default 'no' option is actually working correctly.

Admin panel
General
Manage forums
Click the green cog next to the forum you want to include

Display active topics: yes
Submit

You can turn it on for all forums by using this query on your database. NB you may need to change the table prefix to your own.

Code: Select all

UPDATE phpbb_forums SET forum_flags = forum_flags | 16 WHERE forum_type < 2;

Thank you very much!

I always wondered why the "enable Active topics" tac had no effect. Hahaha!

Edit: I assume this still retains the permissions for each forum? (EX: Private boards will only show up in the active topics to individuals that have the permissions to see the board?)

Also, do I have to enable PM reporting somewhere?

Permissions will stay in effect. If you're not part of a group that has access to a forum then those topics will not show on the list.

PM reporting should be on by default.

If you open a PM in your inbox you should see a \!/ icon next to the quote option.
