Code Messed Your Forum Up? Check here FIRST!!
« on: December 10, 2007, 05:55:16 am »
The codes you find here are SAFE but if you do not follow the directions EXACTLY as given you could easily find it impossible to access your forum.   Be sure you follow ALL steps.     

Should you have a problem after putting in a code there are some things you can try:

FIRST:    

IF you can access your Header and Footer:
Copy the information in both and save it then clear the header and footer.   
Put the codes back in, one at a time.   Test and correct any errors in a code before adding a new one.

If you can NOT access your Header and/or Footer:

1.  Disable Javascript in your browser.    
You "may" then be able to correct the problem.   

To disable Javascript in Firefox: 
Tools > Options >  Content >  take checkmark out of  "enable Javascript"  in Firefox

To disable Javascript in Internet Explorer:
From the Tools menu, choose Internet Options... .
Click the Security tab.
Click Custom Level... .
Scroll to the "Scripting" section of the list. Click Disable or Enable.
Close and restart your browser.

If that does not work:

2.  Try a different browser (with and without javascript disabled)

If that does not work:

3..  Remove your Header and/or Footer:
(This will not work in every instance...  be aware it will totally clear your header and/or Footer)

Remove Header:

http://YOUR_FORUM.smfforfreeX.com/index.php?action=style;sa=clearheader
Change YOUR_FORUM to your forum name, and the X to 2, 3 or 4. 
If you have a server 1, you will not need a number, so just remove the X.

Remove Footer:

http://YOUR_FORUM.smfforfreeX.com/index.php?action=style;sa=clearfooter
Change YOUR_FORUM to your forum name, and the X to 2, 3 or 4. 
If you have a server 1, you will not need a number, so just remove the X.

If the steps above do not help:  Leave a topic with your forum's url,  the code that you used, and a clear description of the problem so that we can help you to correct the issue.
