  • [26-05-12] v1.0:

The mod removed since there are some problems of stability that need to be fixed and I don't have time to fix them. For who need this kind of feature, just wait for 4.2.1 that will have it build-in.

+1 - the same issue.

What's new? section shows new forum posts-threads, but activity stream sideblock shows the blog's activity only.

Sorry, party of the error are German... If you have problems understanding it ask me and I will try to translate it.

//EDIT: Ah, forgot to mention the version - it is the 4.2.0 PL2 Suite.

I understand that you are not developing this anymore; however I got a major error which is affecting my forum since installing this mod.

Here is a breakdown.

1) The website loads all other tabs (activity etc) and I can even access threads if I know their link, but the actual forum.php (our forum homepage) won't load.
I get the error "Server error

The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here are some suggestions:

Reload this webpage later.

HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request."

2) I disabled all current plugins with the config file and that did not fix anything so I reenabled them.
3) I am not getting any errors sent to my email and I created an error file (not sure if I did it 100% correct...) but nothing was being added to the log there either.
4) I ran the 'upgrade' script and replaced all the files but the problem is still persisting.

I even replaced my forum.php with a fresh one from vbulletin but nothing changed. Not sure what to do!
Vbulletin suggested I ask you about this.


An update

An update in case anyone else ends up with this issue and googles this thread.

After a lot of messing around and trying things - I disabled my forum blocks in the admin CP and now my page is up again.

Stinks that I have to disable it, but hey at least it's working
