Frustrating error message

edited November 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hey party people... Just wondering if anyone can help me out... I'm getting a really annoying error message, since reinstalling my forum. It only happened since enabling/disabling the 'discussion views' extension (and, yep, I did follow the readme.txt advice), but even if I delete that totally from the extensions, I get this error when viewing the categories: Notice: Undefined variable: Alternate in /home/fhlinux205/d/ on line 11 The forum still 'works', but you get the error message repeated above the discussions for as many topics as there are. I've tried everything I can think of (even reinstalling Vanilla), but nothing fixes it - any advice?

    How very odd. When you reinstalled it did you re-upload the files too? You could try just re-uploading your library and themes folders and see if that fixes it (shouldnt need to reinstall after that) - though i'm pretty sure the discussion overview doesnt require you to touch the core and that variable is definitely meant to be there...

    Thanks for the response. Yep - I reuploaded the files too. I can't work it out... but, then again, my PHP knowledge is probably zero! I don't want to have to do a complete uninstall of the forum and start from scratch. I think my forum users would probably migrate! Any other ideas?

    Well it's a work-around more than a solution, but assuming you're not using any styles which rely on alternate-coloured items on the discussion grid, you could do the following:
    copy themes/discussion.php into themes/vanilla
    open up the new file, locate line 11, scroll to the end, and remove this chunk:
    .($Alternate ? ' Alternate' : '')
    then save it. That should get rid of your error but as i say it's not ideal

    That seems to be working. Thank you very much!
