I found a fix for the "POST" problem!

Im running vbIndex on "www .site.com" and my forum on "forum.site.com" and i had problems with the POST issue.

I found out that in the preg-replace they have hardcoded the "www" part and changeing it to "forum" solved it for me.

I'm asking in in here as well and although it has probaly been asked several times aldready, I couldn't find an answer ;___;

I've recently installed vBindex on www.ffimpulse.com/vbindex.php? Now, when I try to log it, it lets me but on the vbindex page nothing changes, I'm still seen as a guest even though it does log me in on the forums .. it doesn't log me in on the vbindex page.

It's not the same as the above posted problem.

Help, please.

I think I found out how you have to edit the template vbindex_customblock_1 then copy it over to every skin =/. Wish they had a main menu option set up like vbportal does.

When I upgraded from VB 3.0.1 to 3.0.6 I lost the dropdown menu for VBindex options in my admincp. I spent an hour looking for the answer here and elsewhere -- before figuring it out. No no one else has to feel my pain -- the answer is:



in the admincp at line 568 replace

mysql error: Duplicate entry 'imgdir_attach-2' for key 2

I am getting this error when trying to install the portal on the latest version of vbulletin. Has anyone else had this problem?
