I somehow broke my custom islands when I updated to the latest version.

And by broke .. let me explain.

They still work but no matter what I do they won't update.
They show old data compared to what I have on the admin side.

Any idea on where I start trying to figure out whats going on?

Admin side doesn't show any errors and shows the correct new data.... but on the forum side its stuck with the old data.

So weird... I don't understand.

Okay you could start with clear cache in the control panel. And or delete all files in the cache directory except for index.*
This would force a complete rebuild of the cache folder, If that is the issue.

Other than that!
I see you are current on 7.5.3
What version did you upgrade from?

It was 7.4

I was just trying to dump the cache and look around to debug this -- hopefully thats it. I deleted the files via FTP to make sure they didn't get stuck.

Then I put the "click chat" custom island code into a new island and it contains the right info ... So I will monitor it to see if it says updated or not.

Hopefully posting about it fixes it smile thats what usually happens to me.

Oh. Chat??
It sounds like you have a mod installed. So it could be the culprit.
You may need to discuss that island a little more.

Well, I found your forum URL, but it looks like your portal boxes are working now...

Would really need some more info, like which aren't working, how they're not working, and possibly their code...

One thing I'd do is go in and delete all of the files in the cache folder and the templates/compile folder then check if it's working

Yes thanks guys -- It was the cache folder.

Somehow something got messed up and they were not updating.
but after killing them it appears all is well smile

The click chat we have been running has been working fine with UBB for a long long time. Now that we can build the chat as a Java Applet or a Flash App we might dump this out to the community. The current version of the chat is a stand alone windows EXE that confirms user data against the forum database.

Works really slick and doesn't require any mods to the stock scripts smile Thats how I like to do my mods smile
