Topic: can't edit forums

This has been an ongoing problem since I upgraded to 1.3. I recently also upgraded to the latest release 1.3.4.

When clicking on Administration>Start>forums it takes me to forum.tld/s.php instead of  forum.tld/forums.php.

I was ignoring this problem but now I want to make a new forum which will only be accessible/readible by a handful of members. I did that by using phpMyAdmin but I'm not sure as to where the  "forum permissions" (found in Start>forums>Edit forum) are storred in the db so as to edit them there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: can't edit forums

Does the page "forum.tld/s.php" exist? What can you see at this page?

Hi Slavok,

Thanks for replying... forum.tld/s.php does not exist as far as I know. I use messy urls for the forum. What I see when clicking /admin/forums.php is the front page of my install.

Try to rewrite the Forum admin pages. Have you any extensions, which can affect at this page, installed?

Re: can't edit forums

Hi Slavok,

That kind of did it. I disabled the main textpattern driven site's htaccess for a few minutes and forums.php loaded just fine:

This is what I have and is causing problems. If anyone can advise me as to what I should change it would be appreciated.
