This might be a result of the extensions that are disabled; when I click on a posted hyperlink it no longer opens in a new tab. (Link opens & replaces the Forum).

Got it! Thanks!
Had to go to board index and select a topic or catagory, then the New Topic buttons appears.
A little different than the old way.
Thanks?

I've noticed a new, albeit minor issue today.

Previously, before this latest update, if I wasn't logged into the site, it displayed in a relatively narrow strip in the middle of the screen with a lot of wasted white space on both sides. Once I logged in, the site would fill my screen pretty much from side to side. This behavior continued until today.

Now, I have those "white space" bands on both sides, regardless of whether I'm logged in or not.

Windows 10, Chrome, & a 1600 x 900 laptop display.

Edit: I'm seeing the same behavior with IE.
Clear your browser cache for this site, and you should see the old style.......at least, that’s what worked for me (iOS Safari on iPad Pro).
Thanks, but that didn't solve it for me.

As I said, it's minor.

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.

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.

The report post error should be an easy fix, there is just a conflict in the templates. If phpbb support cant fix it, then they are choosing not to. The way phpbb works, is that you have one main php file and a bunch of corresponding php files for each action of the forum. When one action is not behaving like it should, most of the time it can be traced back to it's own php file.

You're thinking it is a phpBB problem?

i dont think its a phpBB problem... im thinking in the code if you did a search for "http://texaschlforum.com/app.phpviewtop ... 372/report" and then changed it to the correct link "https://texaschlforum.com/app.php/post/1205372/report" and then save it, it should fix the issue no problem.

i retract my last post... Since the FAQ button next to quick links gives the same error and it has the same "viewtopic.php" slapped in the URL for some reason. might be like lonestar said and a template issue since its showing up on multiple links.

The problem is no one has yet been able to determine why the extra syntax is being added. Even if I knew where it is in the code, I don't want to make custom modifications that won't survive the next update.

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?

Is "Enable URL Rewriting" enabled in ACP>General>Server Settings?
