Can someone tell me what I have to change in order to get the
## Alert: The forums are currently turned off! ##
message back at the bottom of vBindex?

It appears on all my other pages, but this one. I'm not sure *where* exactly it's called from, because I can't find any reference to it in the footer template.


Any help would be great
Thanks.

Unhappy user online problem

hi guys,

nearly everything is working fine at my portal and i think vbindex is the greatest free portal software for vb3.

I use a vb 3.0.1 with the vbindex v3.0.0 RC5 and have a problem that was mentioned some posts before:

The useronline block at the vbindex shows a different count compared to the forumhome. At the forumhome (index.php) everything is shown alright (e.g. 70 user online with names). At the same time the vbindex shows a wrong number of online users (e.g. 10 user online with names).

The strange thing is: This problem only accures for registered users and guests. As an administrator both data are shown correctly. That has nothing to do with invisible users because in the above example (70 users online) only 5 are invisible.

Can anyone please help me with this? Some more ppl seem to have this prob and some perhabs haven't recognized it, because -as i said- with admin account everything is shown normal.

bye
Vic

Have you any other details? Are there any invisible users online at the time? Is it just the total count thats out, or the guest count, member count or all three?

here's some actual figures:

admin-account:
vbindex.php: 35 users, 5 guests (total: 4 invisible)
index.php: 35 users, 5 guests (total: 4 invisible)

registered user account:
vbindex.php: 4 users, 5 guests (no invisibles shown)
index.php: 35 users, 5 guests (no invisibles shown)

hopes that'll help troubleshooting :nervous:

btw: in isn't just the countnumber. it's also the list of usernames shown in the "users online"

Hey, great addition! I have a small problem, hopefully you can help me out. Users are logged out of the Portal when they go from the Forums to the Portal, and occasionally they are logged out of the Forums. I tried the cookie fixes posted here (edting the path), but they caused major problems, resulting in me being essentially locked out. I would enter my username and password, be taken to the confirm page, and then be bounced back to an unlogged in state. I used a fix posted at vB.com to return the cookie settings to normal.

Cookie settings are currently at the vB default, being a / and a blank. You can find my forums at http://www.therebelfaction.com/

Thanks much, it's probably just me being dumb like usual.

can someone please help me with a side hack for this? With php nuke I have a radio interface that takes the stream info. It sends this info to MySQL, which then puts into a block showing the artist, song, album name and cd cover art based on what I tel the data base this info equals based on the info it retreives from the shoutcast stream.

Never mind this, I think I fixed it. The navbar was linking to 'www.therebelfaction.com', but several members had bookmarked and were using the URL without the WWW. I've tweaked it a bit, so it shouldn't matter if you use WWW or not.

having a issue with the polls going out to 10,000% on the front page causing the poll to be very wide. I was able to correct it with the code that was listed here (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...t=poll+problem) for the general forums, but it did not fix the front page for vbindex.

Anyone have the cure for this problem?
