Uh – oh…I made a mistake and cant fix it

  • 781521

    Hello Everyone,

    I changed the address (in settings) of the address to my forum and now everything is jacked up.

    it should be

    but I removed the /bbpress/ to see if I could get the header to point back to my original page instead of the forum frontpage….which didnt work.

    Now I cant get to the general settings of bbpress to correct the address. Which php file in my bbpress folder on my server stores that info?..or where can I go to correct it?

    Also, whats the best way to make my header go to the home page of my site, not the homepage of the forum? I searched and all I saw were the “super header” option and the added link in the forum header phot0…neither of which will work for me. I have 2 different pictures for the headers so super header is out and I phinagled with the other option and it either was hidden or didnt look right.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Go into your database, do the following query:

    UPDATE (your $bb_table_prefix found in the config file goes here)topicmeta SET meta_value='' WHERE meta_key='uri' LIMIT 1


    Ok, Thanks.

    Heres what I have in the bb-config.php:

    $bb_table_prefix = 'bb_';

    So heres what I put:

    UPDATE (bb_)
    topicmeta SET
    meta_value='' WHERE
    meta_key='uri' LIMIT 1

    Heres its response (I really didnt know if I need to leave the parenthesis etc in it…I have never queried a database before):

  • SQL query:

    UPDATE (


    )topicmeta SET meta_value = ‘’ WHERE meta_key = ‘uri’ LIMIT 1

    MySQL said:

    #1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘topicmeta SET

    meta_value=’’ WHERE

    m’ at line 2

  • any suggestions on what next?..

    Thank You!

Remove the brackets – this is what you want to execute:

UPDATE bb_topicmeta SET
WHERE meta_key='uri' LIMIT 1



Thank you for your help sir!
