The only issue I have now is avatars don't work. I checked and noticed that UserAvatars is empty. I was sure it had an html file in there. So I reloaded the html from the 2.52 package and it wouldn't upload, something wrong with the file. My old forum did not have a UserAvatars folder at all. I'm going to download the 2.5.2 package again just in case that file is corrupt. Will post here when I resolve this or get stuck trying Cheesy

The quick guide lists the CHMOD for  public_html/yabbfiles/avatars/UserAvatars folder as 644. Is that correct? I had to change it to 755 to be able to replace the HTML file.

OK avatars don't work at all. Any suggestions?

update: images don't work (except for smilies and stars) menu buttons don't appear either. Images don't work in posts or signatures.

All the folders need to be 755. It's the items in the folders that are 644 - except for YaBB.pl and AdminIndex.pl. Spellchecker.pl and ModuleChecker.pl may or may not need to be 755, depending on the system.

OK, well the guide has an error then. I reckon I have a Paths.pl issue. Is there any way of generating a new Paths.pl file?

you can edit them from the admin center

there are two avatar paths
one will look like
Avatar Dir: C:/xampp/www/yabbtest.test/site/new/avatars
and two will look like this
Avatar URL: http://yabbtest.test/new_fc/avatars
you will find Path Settings in the admin center.
  

YaBB install help video
1. what yabb forum are you running and the url
2. describe in as much detail as you can what happens and also post screenshots if you can
3. please be patient we live in different time zones and have other commitments but we will help you
as bill and ted say (Be excellent to each other)

The paths look fine in the admin centre, but I had to use data from my old paths file to get out of a bind I got myself in. How different is the old from the new? Could that cause issues of images not working? Thanks for your time and support.

ok for a test can you add this to your url
yabbfiles/avatars/nn.gif

so if you have yabbfiles in the root of your website it will look like
http://mysite.com/yabbfiles/avatars/nn.gif

Yeah the image will show in a browser.

In my Paths.pl file there is one empty field:
$yyhtml_root = "";

It seems to be my Paths.pl. I populated it with info from my old Paths file and that seems to be the issue. How can I generate a new Paths.pl?

sorry you can't you can only edit from the admin center but if you copy this code to Paths.pl and edit it with your info it will be good.

Here's the thing:
This field was not populated in the admin centre nor in the Paths.pl file.
Code
Select All
$yyhtml_root = "http://yabbtest.test/yabbfiles2.5.2"; 



I don't understand how that would happen, but there it is. Thanks for your great support, I hope I don't need to bother you again for a long while.

it's cool post back any time you need as for the $yyhtml_root = field not populated this would have stopped all images loading on the forum are you sure it was just the avatars not loading?
