Things are broken. I have many questions.

edited August 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
1. The community here on is clearly not using the default install because my urls look like this:

While here, it looks like this:

How do I clean up the urls? ...remove all that index.php?p=/ junk?

2. When I click on "Change My Picture" and choose an image from my computer, I end up here:

With a "Page Not Found" error. Why?

3. Under Site Settings > Routes > "Get more information on creating custom routes" it links to:

This page does not exist. Why?

4. While surfing the community here I noticed that the page navigation along the bottom does not work. I can't go to any page other than "1". Whatever I click, the page reloads and the same questions are there.

While this software certainly looks slick, it seems to be carelessly managed. Am I wrong?

    1. Edit the config.php file and change the $Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] setting to TRUE.

    2. The change in 1. should fix this.

    3. Documentation always follows development in software development. Personally I find most documentation on most software platforms is left to communities like this for documentation and explanation. The more mature the software , the more discussion, documentation and help there'll be for it.

    4. Not quite sure what the problem is (can't reproduce it).

    Thank you, Jeff. Hope I wasn't too much of an ass. ;)

    Everything seems to be a-o-k now. And as for seems to happen when I have the "Popular" tab selected. I assume that means there is only one page of popular content...even though the URL changes according to page#?

    Anyway, no big deal. Thanks again.

    @jasonman - I've just added the routing documentation:

    We test out a lot of things here on the community forum - it helps us track down bugs that got past us before releasing plugins to everyone. Thanks for the tip on #4!

    Item #4 is bug that occurs on this site as well

    Select "Popular" and pagination links don't work. Click on 2 and it shows p2 in URL but content is same. Am trying to resolve for my own installation as well
