After trying Bulletin Board and SMF and Discus and others, I found Vanilla and stayed with it because of it's simplicity and user friendliness. Coming from a background with some CSS and HTML knowledge I was able to learn PHP and JS as I learned how to make themes and plugins for myself. I have not encountered anything else that does this. Everything else is very limited as far as extensibility.
I would not waste my time with something else again. To me Vanilla is the Best Forum Software there is.
In the YAGA app. Maybe the author made a mistake somewhere causing a fatal error.
Syntax means in the code , like a missing comma or something else. It's hard to say unless you can read the error logs in your server for the specific error.
Not angry, just want to avoid confusion. The OP does not explain well what is going on.
Using SSO the name and email are from the connector, even if you changed your name and email in vanilla, the next time you connect it will use the one from the connector again.
For example, if I log in with Facebook into this forum, my name and photo and email, will be the one from Facebook.
User names can only be changed by the admin or person with permissions in this forum. It can be done in your forum too.
To not allow editing email, photo, username.. add these to the config.php
$Configuration['Garden']['Profile']['EditEmails']=false; $Configuration['Garden']['Profile']['EditPhotos']=false; $Configuration['Garden']['Profile']['EditUsernames']=false;
