Problems with uploading a profile image and change username on forum


Im having problems with my new vanilla forum installation. The problems is with uploading a profile image and change username on forum like user-settings. Getting to a "page not found" -site and for changing name you only stand loading with nothing happening.


I also want to ask if theres a solution to auto-accept members that applies to a forum with a certan *.@-email adress?

    I had the same problem.

    By looking through the source of applications/dashboard/controllers/class.profilecontroller.php , I saw that we needed a subdir under uploads called "userpics". Added that, made it 777 and owned by www-user, and now it works.

    For some reason, this code failed:

    // Make sure the avatars folder exists.
    if (!file_exists(PATH_ROOT.'/uploads/userpics'))

    Turned out that my previous solution only worked for Admin users. For normal users, I also had to turn on "RewriteUrls". Our .htaccess looks like this:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=/$1 [QSA,L]

    Prior to 2.0.6, I had these same problems when not using RewriteUrls. If you haven't already, try upgrading to 2.0.6.
