Chas.
FWIW - I don't believe it has anything to do with .php or templates. (Assumes both are original phpBB versions.)

Clearly if this was any of my business I'd already know the answer but, is there a saved copy of the database pre the upgrade?
Yes.

This is what the report post button is linking to: http://texaschlforum.com/app.phpviewtop ... 372/report

It should link to this instead: http://texaschlforum.com/app.php/post/1205372/report

Or better yet: https://texaschlforum.com/app.php/post/1205372/report

Both of these work.

For whatever reason viewtopic.php is being inserted in the middle of the url string.

Re: Software update - More information

I have not made any headway in correcting the link and report post problems. I've enabled some of the new extensions since the board has run with no extensions for two days with no change. At this point, I'm not confident that the phpBB voluntary support folks are going to be able to help. Two suggestions were made, neither worked, and I've heard nothing since.

It may be that only a future update will fix the problems, but that's not guaranteed. Meanwhile, if you have to report a post, please send a PM to one of the Moderators. Forum Rules have always been in the Site Announcements, Questions & Suggestions forum. I deleted the second style in case it was contributing to the problem.

Software update - More information

As many of you have undoubtedly noticed, the software update has caused quite a number of issues. The most recent was a login problem that prevented many people from logging in. It happened to me using Firefox, but I could log in using Chrome and Internet Explorer. That problem has been resolved.

The page links for the Forum Rules, Copyright Notice and Mission are still broken, although the latter two are still available under the Site Announcements, Questions & Suggestions sub-forum and the Copyright Notice is available under the Legal Notice sub-forum.

The Report Post link is still broken and this is probably the most significant problem at this point. The Forum is very good at self-policing and this makes the Moderators' jobs much easier.

I have temporarily disabled all of the extension (features) while trying to fix this problem. I hope to start adding them back a few at a time in the coming days.

Sorry for the problems folks.
Chas.
