are you including any added javascript code, other than the board's javascript?

i found a problem with that, when i was including the code in the footer.

just fishing around for things that you might be doing outside of a vanilla/standard install..

If it doesn't work, your webhost doesn't support allowing the path_info variable; if you're using Apache2 you can generally add:
AcceptPathInfo On

To a .htaccess file; assuming you have permissions to define it anyway wink... Most servers come with the override permission "FileInfo" by default, so it would actually suprise me if you didn't have this permission.

Turn off spider friendly urls, and then read my previous posting #191436

You could still try the same thing, but I'm unsure as to if it'd work for apache1 (which yes, is old, but sadly still standard with webhosts that don't want to upgrade... Kind of like PHP5 being out for several years yet and php6 coming out soon, when some webhosts are still pushing php3 or early builds of php4 on their users)

Well, looking at your forums, your site definately isn't reading the path_info variable:

Do this for me...

Create a new file, phpinfo.php:
PHP Code

<?php phpinfo(); ?>


Now, call that file as:
http://www.teamzr1.com/phpinfo.php/gizmo/rox

And search through the page for:
/gizmo/rox

It should be in an area named "PATH_INFO"

It should also show "PATH_TRANSLATED" that should show a filesystem path that'll be something like "/home/undergroundnews/public_html/gizmo/rox"

Gizmo thanks for the help

Your talking over my head so can you explain more detail ?

Do I create that one line of code in a text editior and then simply name it rox with no extention ?

do a serach with what you mean the SQL database ?

You create a new file, named phpinfo.php, in notepad, and then upload it to your webserver

Very odd...
Quote
PATH_INFO no value
PATH_TRANSLATED no value
ORIG_PATH_TRANSLATED /home/teamzron/public_html/gizmo/rox
ORIG_PATH_INFO /gizmo/rox
ORIG_SCRIPT_NAME /phpinfo.php
ORIG_SCRIPT_FILENAME /home/teamzron/public_html/phpinfo.php

It's reading it, but dropping it lol... (orig is what the server reads, the other is what is actually processed) Very odd, but a webserver issue that I'm not sure how to fix...

Well, you're not alone in this issue, i've found several referances in google such as this, I'll take some time later to see if i can pinpoint anything.

Try this:
In libs/ubbthreads.inc.php
Replace This:
Code
	if (isset($_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) && !$PATH_INFO) {
		$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'];
	} // end if

With This:
Code
	if (isset($_SERVER['PATH_INFO']) && !$PATH_INFO) {
		$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'];
	} // end if
	elseif (isset($_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO']) && !$PATH_INFO) {
		$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO'];
	} // end if

Then enable spider urls.

Though I think if this makes it into the codebase that I like it displayed as this:
Code
	# In swoops Gizmo to save the day!
	if(!$PATH_INFO) {
		if (isset($_SERVER['PATH_INFO'])) {
			$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'];
		} // end if
		elseif (isset($_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO'])) {
			$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO'];
		} // end if
	} // end if

I added :

elseif (isset($_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO']) && !$PATH_INFO) {
$PATH_INFO = $_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO'];
} // end if

after the first line and turned on the friendly spider function

Is there a way you can test to see if that makes it work now ?
I checked logs which says
PRIMARY_SETTINGS SEARCH_FRIENDLY_URLS changed from '0' to '1'
but no idea if the function works or not

Update with that function turned on main forum page would not show and would instead go right to portal page and clicking on "forum list" only refreshed showing portal page

Thanks

The only way to test it would be to have it on; all links will show /'s instead of &= but you'll likely need to clear your cache in both your browser and forums to be able to test it.

But yeh if it brings you to your portal page, it's not fixed; not sure why, as i'm sure that section of code is the only area that references path_info

This was a very rare issue where the isP was populating a variable named ORIG_PATH_INFO vs PATH_INFO; are you SURE you're having this EXACT SAME issue? If so, the fix is posted.
