My b2evolution Version: 4.1.x

Well, I finally paid someone to update for me... everything seems okay, but I don't know where to start to make sure plugs in are updated, etc., and what things I have installed that might be broken.

The blogs themselves look okay, but I did notice that the menus now look like this--they won't go away:

Any ideas? Is it just me or is this a new thing? I tried to look for settings or prefs to change it and didn't see anything.

What else should I look for? I don't have many old plugins installed--basically smileys, video, antispam...[/img]

Interestingly, they appear in Firefox 13 and Safari (on my iPhone), but not Firefox 10 or IE 9.

Your browser is using cached CSS files from older version. CTRL + F5 will fix it.

Thanks.

Any ideas on how to get comments (feedback) working again? I can leave comments when I'm logged in, but regular people can't. I've allowed everyone to post (in Settings) but they just get a blank page.

I've never had anyone create an account, though I guess I could if that was the issue.

I'm also having issues with the plugins, so maybe that has something to do with it...?

but they just get a blank page.

This means there's an error somewhere. Try switching to any default skin.

Disable all plugins that were not shipped with b2evo. Can you list them?

I'm having the same issue with the comments/feedback/contact not working. When I click the "Send Feedback" link, or any other link directing me to make a comment or send a contact, all that happes is a small swirling image appears with "Form is loading..." below it.

I hope using a default skin isn't the answer. I spent too long making my blog look like I want and hate to go to a default skin. I tried the CTRL+F5 thing...didn't help. I made changes to the "style.css" file but did not edit anything pertaining to the comments sections. I did make color changes to all the images for the skin I'm using, but saved them as the same file types they originally were.

I've not fiddled with any of the plugins, so that shouldn't be an issue. Any help is greatly appreciated.

For some reason this is not working. I uncheck this option, but when I save the changes the box is checked again.

Ok...had to uncheck "cache rendered blog pages" (along with unchecking AJAX one) for it to work.

weird

The second box should uncheck automatically if you have javascript enabled. In fact, you need javascript for the backoffice to work properly.

Worked here, too. Thanks!

The right way to fix that issue is to use the original _html_header.inc.php file in your skin.
Compare yours to /skins/_html_header.inc.php and transfer the changes.

Ah right, now i remember i guess, only disabling ajax forms didnt work for me either.

But i cant afford to disable page caches since i have kind of huge traffic.

The my post above. You don't have to disable AJAX forms if your HTML header is up to date.


Form is loading...
