Will PAY to get our forum fixed

  • Hello All;

    I have posted my problem in this post:

    …but I’m not getting any help, the problem is getting weirder and I need this fixed ASAP, so I’m willing to pay anyone who can help me.

    Our forum at has been working for months, now when you click to view a topic you get a “No input file specified” error. I tried reinstalling, shutting off plugins, everything, with no luck. I then thought there might be something in the most recent post that was causing the problem. So, I went into the database with phpmyadmin and deleted the most recent post (titled: “Eidolon finished?”) Now, as you can see – that post is still in the list – AFTER I deleted it from the DB???

    So, if anyone can figure this out and get our forum running – I’ll pay your price.

    Please reply here and I’ll get back to you.

    Turn off slugs until you fix your htaccess file and you’ll be back online instantly.


    Thanks _ck_! That worked sweet. Didn’t even need to touch .htaccess.

    I just donated $20 through your donate button. Sweet bbpress site by the way.

    Thanks again so much.

    Also, thanks for the offer, chrishajer, I really appreciate it.

    For anyone who wants to know how to do that quickly, just go to your config.php file and make the following line of code look like this:

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    (problem code was: $bb->mod_rewrite = slug;)



    Well I very much appreciate the donation (though unnecessary) but you’ve only half fixed your problem by disabling the pretty permalinks you used to have. I figured your priority was getting back online asap.

    You need to check that your don’t have any higher htaccess rules interfering with your bbpress htaccess, and that bbpress’s htaccess rules are fresh and correct. Don’t use multiviews in your htaccess on godaddy, make sure you go here and get the proper rules to copy into the /forums/.htaccess

    I also am concerned that you mention using the word “slug” (singular) in your bb-config.php when it should be

    $bb->mod_rewrite = slugs;
