Well I can if you wish.
If you can send me ftp login via PM I can take a look.
That means all I can do is check file permissions and file integrity.
If you wish me to look at the ubb control panel I would need admin access which I am not a registered member yet at your board.

Ruben,

I totally understand what you are saying and what to do. I dont want to run a backup that's for sure. I have these files on my PC somewhere but I dont trust myself to make changes in the includes folder or others. Can you do it for me or at least take a look at it?

On your site files for ubb you have a includes folder.
In that folder is a filename
config.inc.php

It holds most all the settings for your site that you enter in the ubb control panel.
You can look and edit it from a text editor. Like notepad or Notepad ++ do not use wordpad or word.

I appears that the file got corrupted or deleted somehow

If you have any type of current backup of the script files after installation then upload that to the site to overwrite the file.
You might even find your custom body on load.

As a precaution I would ftp to the site just to make sure the config.inc.php file exists before you start anything.
And if you find a backup config file view the contents to see if it would be better to use it or let it be.

If you don't have a usable backup then below still applies.

Then in ubb control panel
Methodically review every single section and every single entry field one at a time edit what needs to be corrected and save/update.
Even if it looks correct with no edits save/update.

In the future I would at the very least make regular backups of the includes folder.
This is not a substitute for a full backup of files and database

You can find a dummy config file at ubbwiki.
to compare to what you should have.
https://www.ubbwiki.com/archive/fetch/1/ubb-threads-v7-config-file.html
It will have different data than what you need but it will contain all the fields blank or not for what your forum needs.

Only you will know what your settings should be.
Every site is different.

As Ruben mentioned above, it sounds like your includes/config.inc.php file got wiped.

When you restored the config file from your earlier backup, the file you restored may have had outdated settings in it. Always make sure to have a relatively recent backup of your files and setting.

I also see that you are on UBB.threads 7.6.0. You should look at upgrading to at least version 7.6.1, where the config file is automatically backed before any changes are being made and a new one is created.

[NEW] The current forum config file is now backed up before new changes are saved. Normally there would be no need for this step, though an incorrectly configured server or php.ini setting may cause havoc and corrupt the new config file creation process. A forum owner can now roll back to their backup config file, if the new one was corrupted upon its creation.

If you are having issues with attached images not displaying, confirm that your paths are also correct:

Absolute PATH to Attachment Storage Directory

I guess here is another one,

Another, the follow topic doesn't seem to be working. I've taken it off topics I was following and can't get it back. I did this because curlycord in his topic said that wasn't working for him. I tried several new topics and that didn't work so that's why I took it off topics that were being followed to see if I could get it back, Including this thread.

Sounds to me like your includes/config.inc.php file got wiped.
Not just your header and footer files.
Every item you talked about is stored in that file.

You need to restore it from what ever backup you have.
Then review every setting in the ubb control panel, even if the setting looks correct elect the save/update button at the bottom.

The body on load file is a option for a custom code that you add.

This was a issue a while back where the config file would wipe to 0 bytes.
This was addressed several times over the last couple of versions.

I can not seem to find the Body Onload file. Can someone tell the code for that.

Attached is a screenshot of the default "HTML Includes" settings for a fresh install of UBB.threads:

The default settings are: all fields are blank.

One other problem I am having is I cannot load an image using UBB, so something changed on that as well, help please?

Confirm that your forum paths are correct:

OK new problem now. Yesterday when making changes some links Chrome deleted some of my files in General HTML Includes and I lost my Default Header and Footer. I was able to restore the Header and Footer from a backup file I had but I can not seem to find the Body Onload file. Can someone tell the code for that.

A simple link to an http domain will not cause https issues unless it is serving content (gif, jpg, css, any content...etc) sitting on that http domain, which the copyright notice is not doing.

have a look at content on your https page, being served from an http link. especially have a look at your users avatars, user signatures, and even your custom styles. you may also have ads or third-party APIs attempteming to insert insecure http content on to your https pages.

but a simple off-site http url link will not trigger https warnings.


off topic... ubb.threads 7.6.0 was released Febuary 2017. ubbcentral.com was fully upgraded from http to https sometime mid to late 2017. The current version of ubb.threads is 7.6.1.1, which was released January 2018.

I do want people to have that one single message to respond to when they register. I have enough problems with spammers registering smile. That's the only message I want to go out from the system.

Hopefully this fix I made takes care of the watch messages, which I want to block across the board.

Thinking out loud.
Why not just delete the forum email address in cp-primary
Forum email address.
Make it blank Or a bogus/non legit email account from your domain and save.
