Need to edit a file

I want to remove the "or" to make the login area look a bit more professional. I'm not sure how it got there, or whether it's meant to be there.

Can you please tell me the name of the file and directory, in order to edit this line.

Thank you.

I also want to remove the following button which has no use. Can you guys tell me where I can edit this file too, thank you.

They are appearing after my failed upgrade attempt.

Why have you got the files mixed up? You've now got 2.5 files mixed in with the 2.2.2 files by the looks of it.

That's probably why the setup wouldn't run. You needed to make a totally fresh install of 2.5 totally separate to your old forum. Did you read the QuickGuide?

Can you please help me with the two questions above, thank you.

Yes I read the Quick Guide. I tried to make a totally fresh install, but I admit, I'm a beginner and I had problems with a major install.

It's because the files are mixed up that you are getting the problems in question. In particular, it seems to be the language files, so instead of removing the text and the button you would be best to make sure you are using the language files from 2.2.2 and not 2.5 - specifically LogInOut.lng and Post.lng in the Languages/English/ directory. That should at least solve your problems you asked above.

Okay thank you. The files from 2.5 overwrote the old files, because obviously I needed to upload everything in the same directory.

Are you saying that I need to delete everything from the old forum, and start from scratch in order to install 2.5?

I was told that my old settings won't be deleted if I made an upgrade, and that no backup was required.

No. That's exactly what you shouldn't have done. You should have created a totally new forum. From the QuickGuide:

Quote:
If you are upgrading from YaBB 2.1 or later, you will need to install a completely new version of YaBB 2.5 AE forum.

So ultimately you have two separate forums, and then copy the files across which are stated in the QuickGuide from your old forum to your new forum.

No. You don't have to do anything at all to your old forum accept to put it into maintenance mode and copy the files - you should have left your old forum alone.

As I have said, you need to make a new install of 2.5 totally separate to your old forum.

How can I create two separate forums, when most of the directories and files are the same as the old forum.

For instance, the yabbfiles and yabb2 directories are currently being used by my old forum. I need to upload files into these directories for version 2.5 according to the Quick Guide?

Just rename the 'yabb2' and 'yabbfiles' folders to something different before you upload and install. Once everything is working you can then either rename the same folders to your old forum and change the paths (or remove the old forum) and then rename the folders and change the paths to your new forum to match that of your old one.

Well, the Quick Guide never explain that, which is the reason why I had 2.5 files mixed with my old files.

The Quick Guide warns us the following:
"Do not rename any of these folders for now, or the automatic path detection will not work when you run the setup script."

Which is opposite to what you just told me, so I'm in confusion.

That's talking about the folders within the 'yabb2' folder. It says just before that you can name the 'yabb2' folder whatever you like:

Quote:
In your 'cgi-bin', create a directory called "yabb2" (or whatever name you wish to use in your forum's URL).

Okay thank you for the information. That's one directory, but it doesn't mention that the "yabbfiles" directory can be named to anything?

Another question is if version 2.5 is setup elsewhere and seperate, it doesn't the affect the running of the old forum, so why does it need to be put into maintenance mode?

Well, you obviously can't have two 'yabbfiles' directories, so you will need to change it.

You'll need to stick it into maintenance mode before you copy your files across, otherwise someone might post or make some other change when you are copying them.
