Issue with a Forum Section

Post by Exclusive » Mon May 13, 2019 8:46 am

I'm having an issue with a one particular forum section in my board, when a user is logged out (guest users) is show this at the bottom of the forum:

But when a user is logged in it show this at the bottom of the forum also:

2.png
2.png (4.86 KiB) Viewed 902 times

I have tried to copy other forum's permission, purged cache and still no luck. I don't want it to show any of these two (as shown in the images above), let it be as default as a normal forum should be.

Edit: I now notice that this issue shows in all Category Forums (in all forums inside a category).

Use the permission mask on a user that you know should be able to post and it will show you why the posting permission is being blocked.

Do you have the problem with the default prosilver style as yours is highly modified?

Do you have the problem with extensions disabled?

Ah I think it's because you have stacked subforums so that button and text are for people to post in the forum they're in but in fact you're using that to stack other subforums within it.

You would probably need a styles person to show you how to hide that.

To try and establish where the problem may be if you use the default prosilver style without any modifications it will rule in or out whether it is a style issue. The same for extensions - if you disable your extensions and the problem goes away then the problem is being caused by an extension.

The first rule of troubleshooting is to revert to a known working state and then re-build from there to establish where the problem lies.

Open viewforum_body.html

<!-- IF S_DISPLAY_POST_INFO or .pagination or TOTAL_POSTS or TOTAL_TOPICS -->
	<div class="action-bar bar-top">
Add after on a new line:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF TOTAL_TOPICS neq 0 -->
Find:

Code: Select all

				{S_SEARCH_LOCAL_HIDDEN_FIELDS}
			</fieldset>
			</form>
		</div>

I did this, The post icon now gone but I still see the "There are no topics or posts in this forum." and the pagination.

I found:

Code: Select all

	<div class="pagination">
		<!-- IF not S_IS_BOT and U_MARK_TOPICS and .topicrow --><a href="{U_MARK_TOPICS}" class="mark" accesskey="m" data-ajax="mark_topics_read">{L_MARK_TOPICS_READ}</a> &bull; <!-- ENDIF -->
		{TOTAL_TOPICS}
		<!-- IF .pagination -->
			<!-- INCLUDE pagination.html -->
		<!-- ELSE -->
			&bull; {PAGE_NUMBER}
		<!-- ENDIF -->
	</div>

	</div>
<!-- ENDIF -->
I added on a new line:

Code: Select all

<!-- ENDIF -->
Now pagination gone, Now it's left with the "There are no topics or posts in this forum." How do I remove this one too and also the Forum permissions?

I now notice that this issue shows in all Category Forums (in all forums inside a category).


How do I solve this??

this page: (link removed by request of forum owner)
is a forum page, it lists other forums that are created inside of that forum.

there are no topics in that forum only other forums.
the reason you do not see a new topic button is because you do not have permission to start new topics in that forum.

as mentioned above, go to the permissions tab in the admin panel, use the permissions mask system to found out why you do not have permissions to start a new topic in that forum or any of the forums etc.

you have created your forums/categories etc. in correctly and/or the permissions for them.

I have created my forums/categories Incorrectly? Which other way are they created? Please tell.

No I don't need a topic to be there, I just want to disable it entirely. Would permission mask solve this?

maybe you could explain exactly what you want the final outcome to be. not how you think it can be done, just what you want.

we are going in circles because you are not giving us enough information to help you.
