I've just upgraded my forum to 3.08 and all seemed to go well, I have now got the following showing on the front page - can someone help with this please?

I've lost all the content too but the forum is showing as upgraded.

The content is fine as it's in the database. The problem is the retrieval of the content is broken because of this error. When we fix the code, everything will come back up.

Walk us through exactly how you updated. Which package you used, what you did, any errors you received prior to this, etc.

Do you have any MODs installed?

firstly I followed the instruction for the security issue with flash and ran the check, all came back clear with no issues.

i used the automatic update package for 3.0.7 pl1 to 3.0.8

uploaded install folder, went to the install folder and followed the instructions no errors until ftp the files, so did the manual and downloaded the files, extracted and uploaded them.

The error was that it wasn't connecting at the ftp stage.

Downloaded all files and uploaded to the relevant places and the continued thru the install which confirmed a successful upgrade. renamed install folder and the the problem started.

I only have redbar as a MOD.

Thank you for yoru help

Are you using the word censor at all? That is where the error is occuring.

Try clearing your forum's cache folder.
Delete all of the files in /cache/ other than index.htm and .htaccess

Ok, clearing the files, we have index.htm but we do not have .htaccess.

Cleared cache and no change..

Hi, I've just had this exact same error after an automatic update from 3.0.5-3.0.8, but thanks to this thread I have fixed the issue, thanks to Brf for pointing me in the right direction. I tried clearing the cache without success but clearing all the word censors manually via the Administration Control Panel worked. The error does not return when adding words back onto the list either.

.htaccess is a hidden file, you'll need to make sure you can "view hidden files" in order to see it.

Hope that helps you Schuhby :)

I have this same error.

I haave traced it back to the word censor, in particular the error occurs if I place asterisks in the word censor.

Can anyone advise why it is doing this?
