Go to Administration Control Panel => Customise
In the table in the middle, I now see:
Style Management
Extension Management
Language Management

Appreciate the attempt :)

I'd love to know if there was any way of debugging so I could see what is potentially causing it.
All extensions I have are disabled, so I assume none of them is causing it.

I think I will probably have to delete the test site and copy in a fresh version of my production v3.2.2 and try it again.
I think I will go for the full install and not the changed files approach.

just to be clear, you should not be using the changed files unless you have been editing the core phpbb files for some reason.

also, you do not do a full install.

you just replace all old files with new ones except for the config.php file and a couple of folders. then you run the database update only and you are done.

I had made a change to viewtopicbody.html for Adsense and was comfortable in doing so as I have done in previous updates etc

My terminology may have been misleading. I meant to download the full package and do the update.

Yep, that's exactly what I did and it still has this reference to subsilver2 in it.

One thing I have noticed is that in the Customise tab, it still does show subsilver2. Not sure if this should be ticked and then attempted to be deleted. There isn't any subsilver2 folder though.
Exactly the same appears on my production forum, but doesn't cause any issues.
I've attached a screenshot showing it:

ok, check the database using phpmyadmin or whatever you use.

make sure there is no mention of subsilver2 in any of the style/template tables

also, you might want to replace the files again. delete all files from the sever except for the config.php file and the files, store, ext and images folders.

then , just to be sure, download a new set of 3.2.3 files from here. unzip them and remove the config.php file then upload all the rest to overwrite/merge with what is there.

then try again.

In the Styles table I have two rows:
Style Id1 is prosilver
Style Id2 is subsilver2

What template table are you referring to?

You have had that style before? Drop/remove that subsilver form db.

wow......result :)

I used the uninstall option in the ACP to remove the subsilver2.
An error did appear stating that it couldn't as there wasn't a subsilver2 folder, however, it must have tidied something up as the PHP Debug messages are gone now.

Strange thing is that my production board has the reference to subsilver2 in the Styles table.
I suspect that as part of the update to v323 this has come to light.

I knew subsilver2 was not a part of v3 (?) but never recall seeing anywhere that it was to be removed.

anyway....hopefully job done.

thanks GanstaZ and Robert

Just for closure on this.
I uninstalled the subsilver2 remnants from my production board.
Copied over the changed files.
Ran the database updater.
Production site is running v3.2.3 now.

thanks
