View Full Version : sql erros!

04 Nov 2005, 21:04
running vbadvanced cmps on my forums, things were working fine till I started messing with weapon catagories in the hack and now I get the following two errors when I visit the portal page, I did the FAQ's fixs and it hasnt fixed them

Well then, all you have to do is delete the "AND type = 'post'", then it will go away.
But I really suggest to upgrade to the latest version, as this query appears to come from an outdated and unsupported version.

This error occurs on portal page when logged

Database error in vBulletin 3.0.7:

however /forums/index.php doesnt give errors when visited.


if i disable the news block (which shows posts) then I dont get any errors, additionally I never get forum errors when viewing forums, threads or posts when I access via /forums/ dir

Not an RPG hack issue, server admin upgraded MySql to v5 without telling me.....


In modules/latesttopics.php and modules/news.php find the following:

LEFT JOIN ' . TABLE_PREFIX . 'icon USING (iconid)

and replace it with:

LEFT JOIN ' . TABLE_PREFIX . 'icon AS icon ON (icon.iconid = thread.iconid)
