"register" button disappeared

Post by novicephp »

Hi folks,
Sorry to see you have been targetted, hope you are able to sort it all out smoothly soonest, must be pretty stressful.

I had a major problem with my site last month which finally was solved with the help of members here, particularly from one person, very grateful thanks.
However I have just realised that the "register" button has disappeared. As we have been so busy I am not aware of whether this is a new problem just recently or whether this is left from uploading everything when it all went wrong last month.
site address is http://www.lorn.org.uk

could someone give me a pointer as to how to resurrect this facility, its a bit awkward without it :lol:

cheers

It's usually one of two things.

1) You've turned off registration.
Admin panel>general>user registration settings>account activation.
If that is on disable then no one can sign up.

2) You've got a style which is not the same version as the rest of the files on the board. Although you have the default prosilver style, have you recently updated and if so, how?

My apologies, I should have said that I had checked this, and "User Registration Settings - Account Activitation - is By admin

thank you very much for your help.
A member of the support here (well at the normal php place :D ) gave me a set of files which I believed were old ones, which worked in resurrecting the site, where the downloaded ones hadn't, I have left a message with him but he is on the other side of the world !!

Can you suggest ways to untangle this?

Get a download of the full version of phpBB3.0.4
Upload everything except config.php and the images and files folders.
Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
Let it run
Delete the install folder
You are now up to date.
