Migration to new host causes BBcode problem

Post by Perrorist » Sun Dec 10, 2017 1:23 am

Before migration, the forum displayed this:

After, it changed to this:

I've checked the post and forum settings for BBcode and they're identical, so I'm mystified as to why this has happened. Anyone experienced this before or know of a likely cause?

BTW, BBcodes display in new posts, it's just existing posts that have the problem.

ALSO, User avatars aren't displaying.

Looks like you downgraded from phpBB 3.2 to phpBB 3.1 somehow.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2.

It's definitely 3.2.1. However, I think I know what's happened. I inherited this site, which has been running for many years and has accumulated a lot of garbage along the way. Consequently, some of the files (e.g. images) exist outside the phpbb directory that belong in there. Correcting that has fixed most issues other than BBcodes, but I'll sort that out soon, I hope. I no longer have access to the original server, which would have helped.

FWIW - Your Cookie domain is showing silverpeers.com and it should be .silverpeers.com, note the leading dot. See Knowledge Base - Fixing incorrect cookie settings

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.
