    I think my forums broke when upgrading :eek: It was set up by my system administrator a long time ago and I've never touched an upgrade or add-on myself since. Today was the day I learn to upgrade the forums on my own, that I did and thinking everyone went fine, it appeared a lot of things broke :eek: Such as creating a new post, it only has a place for a title and poll, no place to put your post body in. The shoutbox broke. I can't click my admin control panel up top, it's like it's just an image that leads nowhere: gyazo.com/a1e614d00cc732be3fc932c7874a5d39 Forums: www.prxcraft.com

    I see you've upgraded to 1.3.5. What version did you upgrade from?

    You can log into the ACP from


    Check for outdated templates and phrases. Check you are running the latest version of add-ons and the theme you are using. You may need to disable some until they are upgraded.

    What you upgraded from is imporand so let us know so further guidance can be given.

    Thank you so much. I believe we upgraded from 1.2.1. Just checked, there are no outdated templates or phrases. Will look at plugin upgrades.

    Make sure you gave read this and acted on it.


    See here for add-ons and how to upgrade.


    There may be additional guidance on this for each add-on.

    There isn't a save or confirm button.

    You need to set up a redirect from non-www to www.

    The redirect worked well! Seems like everything is fixed again. Not sure why it changed, guessing the update. Only thing I can't click is the admin panel but I haven't yet updated all add-ons yet so probably the issue.

    The update won't change anything to do with a non-www to www redirect. I guess it probably wasn't set up in the first place.

    What is it you can't click in the admin panel?

    Yeah I don't think it was too, good we got that out of the way thanks. This is what happens, not sure why: http://gyazo.com/f596cb21c48f781850b207a5d620d482 You can't see me clicking in the video, but if you could, I'm actually clicking on the admin, users waiting approval, and report buttons up top in the red bar. Usually if I click either one, it would redirect me to the proper page, now when I click them nothing happens, even when I hover over them it doesn't appear clickable, but just a displays as a flat image. I notice players, staff, or myself can't create conversations ect. too, they have proper permissions.
