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.
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
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When you restored the config file from your earlier backup, the file you restored may have had outdated settings in it.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.

A forum owner can now roll back to their backup config file, if the new one was corrupted upon its creation.
And this is what I am getting on trying to load an image,
Also cant load any new image in the photo section forum??

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.
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.
One other problem I am having is I cannot load an image using UBB, so something changed on that as well, help please?
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 18.104.22.168, which was released January 2018.
