  • Possibly, I did disable the vanilla application - I think that was under Conversations Application if I remember correctly in the 'Applications' area, perhaps I disabled it? I don't remember doing that but it's possible.

    do you see the paragraph marker on the buttonbar.

    the sixth item - select all the code you posted - click the paragraph button and then click code

    or put tildes above and below that will format your info properly.

  • Took me about 10 tries, but now I understand how to do that. I can't thank you enough for the help!

  • now you can enable the other plugins you want one by one via the dashboard.

  •  Here's the .htaccess
    
                # Original
                # If you modify this file then change the above line to: # Modified
                <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
                   RewriteEngine On
                   # Certain hosts may require the following line.
                   # If vanilla is in a subfolder then you need to specify it after the /. 
                   # (ex. You put Vanilla in /forum so change the next line to: RewriteBase /forum)
                   # RewriteBase /
                   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
                   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
                   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php\?p=$1 [QSA,L]

  • Thanks to all for the help, I really appreciate it. I will be very careful just adding every plugin I see... :)

    if your forum works - the .htaccess is fine.

    if it didn't work. you would uncomment line 10 and put the correct ReWriteBase in there, as explained in lines 7,8, and 9.

    but since you are working - no need to change.

    While it is possible to disable applications pragmatically, I can't think of any plugin that does this.

    The dashboard application can't be disabled via the config, so you could theoretically have opened forum.example.com/dashboard/settings/applications and re-enabled Vanilla through there.

    I don't think so. Once you disable vanilla in dashboard, there is only one way to correct that and that is to modify config manually.

    you cannot re-enable vanilla via the dashboard, once "vaniila application" it is disabled, as far as I can tell.

    bets are on - hgtonight

    perhaps the op - had one error with a plugin and then created a chain of events to make things worse, either by mucking up config.php or disabling the app in the dashboard. The plugins certainly wouldn't disable vanilla - the one in the add-ons section that is.

    I just tested my theory on a fresh install of 2.0.18.9. Disabled both conversations and vanilla. I can still access the dashboard ('/dashboard/settings') and the application page ('/settings/applications'). Re-enabling functions fine.

    You can disable the dashboard application using a configuration option ($Configuration['EnabledApplications']['Dashboard'] = FALSE;) but that causes an error to show up in the boostrap sequence which assumes the dashboard application has been enabled.

    This is all very interesting.

    on my test with 2.0.18.8 I disabled vanilla application from the dashboard and can't access the dashboard. :)

    either I'm crazy or it is fixed in 2.0.18.9 - will test later, Until then, I give you the win.
