Important (Only Topic) Problem with topic review in post window

Post by The Colonel Sat Mar 27, 2010 4:07 am

I'm having trouble with the topic review (which allows the user to see a number of posts for reference when typing their post/reply). Originally the topic review was placed below the post window, but a few days ago it has appeared above the post window. So, users have to scroll down through the previous posts in order to get to the post window to type their messages.

I don't remember changing a setting for that, and I've looked virtually everywhere, but I can't find what setting I need to change or what I need to do.

I would either like the topic review to go back to its original place below the post window, or even to get rid of it (which ever would solve the problem!)

If anyone could help, I'd be very thankful. My members have been groaning about it! Laughing

Thanks.

Hello,

This is caused by the recent attachment & Global messages update.
This has been reported to the technician's, and should be corrected hopefully very quickly.

EDIT 10:08AM

This is correctable via Template editing; Do you have versions PunBB or PHPBB2, as we can fix it from that?

Are you using PHPBB2 or PHPBB3?

Important This is the fix for PunBB and PHPBB2

Post by Darren1 Sat Mar 27, 2010 5:34 am

Ok.

Sorry, but because we, the users cannot edit phpbb3 templates, you will have to wait for the techies to fix it themselves, which will be after the weekend Wink

EDIT Darren:
I'm going to precedent this is an only topic, and I am going to insert the Fix for PunBB & PHPBB2 here (Read below)

Idea If your using PHPBB3 or Invision you cannot edit templates, you have to wait until the technician's fix it.


You can only edit this as the founding account

Exclamation PunBB Fix:

Head to: Admin panel >> Display ( Tab ) >> Templates > Post & Private messages > Click on posting_body and locate this code {POST_PREVIEW_BOX} Highlight and cut it, now paste it below this:

Code:
<!-- BEGIN switch_reasons -->
      <dl>
         <dt><label>{L_REASON}</label></dt>
         <dd>{REASON_NEW}</dd>
      </dl>
      <!-- END switch_reasons -->

Now save it and publish it.

Exclamation PHPBB2 Fix:

Admin panel >> Display ( Tab ) >> Templates > Post & Private messages > Click on posting_body and locate this code {POST_PREVIEW_BOX} Highlight and cut it, now paste it next to this:
Code:
<td><span class="nav"><a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}">{L_INDEX}</a> <!-- BEGIN switch_not_privmsg -->{NAV_CAT_DESC}<!-- END switch_not_privmsg --></span></td>

So it should look like this:

Code:
<td><span class="nav"><a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}">{L_INDEX}</a> <!-- BEGIN switch_not_privmsg -->{NAV_CAT_DESC}<!-- END switch_not_privmsg --></span></td>{POST_PREVIEW_BOX}


Now save it and publish it.

Your welcome.

Unfortunately I don't think the techies expected this to happen. haha.
Shouldn't be too much longer now that I've posted 3/4th of the bug fix, I'll just let them find the one for phpbb3.

Focker, well, I can see why now, I expected phpbb2 to comply to similar rules to punbb, however it's not, I'll update that with a fix in just a min.

Fix has been added, sorry about my mistake.
I hope it works for everyone and not just me Razz

That will explain what you are asking, and provide a full fix Wink
