Solved Unlocked Forums coming up Locked

Post by LSyaoran on April 24th 2012, 1:02 pm

OK, not sure this goes here, but on my forumotion forum, Lost Universe, some unlocked forums are showing up with the locked symbol, and nothing inside them is locked, and I can not figure out how to get rid of it. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

Make sure that thee forums' status for those forums are set to 'unlocked', check it on:
Admin Panel > general > Categories & forums > Modify the forums that appears to be locked > Forum Status : set it to 'Unlocked' > Save

I have checked and they are both set to unlocked, and yet the locked image is appearing. For some strange reason, even though they are locked, when a new post is made, it switches to new post, instead of locked, but sa soon as the new post is seen, it's image returns to normal. I can not figure it out, it is driving me crazy.

Oops, sorry, I forgot I locked the forum, but the two locked areas are unlocked, and still say they are locked. Team Character Sheets and Profile list. They are unlocked in the admin pane, but the image still says locked.

Hello,

Can you try resynchronizing your forum:

Also if it doesn't work, try re-uploading the images.

Is it possible that in the admin panel you got the icons1 mixed up... the unlocked icon as locked and the unlocked as the locked icon... go to --> Admin Panel>>Display>>Pics Management>>Advanced Mode>>Icons for Topics and make sure the images are in the correct setting!

Yea, they are correct, I haven't done anything with the images, and the bottom of the forum says which is which, and all the others that are unlocked also have the unlocked symbol. and resynching did not work. The re-uploading did though, thank you. The problem was that the category image was the same image as the locked image.
