XF 1.4 Link to thread/forum not working anymore


Active member
Hello all,

I have a problem since few days with some add-ons:

Some of my add-ons are using a thread link so when something is posted on the addon, it creates a thread in a specify ID forum but this doesn't work anymore.

3 addons where I have the problem since Yesterday.

Is there anything I can do under CP or something else to solve the issue?

I don't have any error under my CP...

Thanks for your help.

I know it Brogan, but 3 addon which are down "for the function I have mentioned" in the same time, it is weird...

Therefore, I have the problem since I have modified my htaccess file.

Is there any error inside this file?

It may be interference from another add-on, but if the issue is being triggered within an action an add-on takes, it's very difficult for us to give a recommendation because we have no idea what the code is doing. A further add-on may be manipulating the thread creation process and thus interfering.

Thanks Mike, so, regarding my htaccess file, there is no problem?

I will try to disable each addon and try again but I have more than 50 free addons installed. :)

Based on your explanation, the issue is programmatic thread creation so the .htaccess will be unrelated. Doesn't look like you've changed anything in it either.
