Earlier today, I just wasn't thinking clearly and cleared out the fields for forum settings in the admin (db table name, etc) and then saved the changes. (I can explain why later....)
This action then
(1.) wouldn't allow me to log in anymore and
(2.) I noticed also that all comment authors had been named anonymous (instead of the user names). There may have been other problems I caused but I haven't noticed any.
Are you laughing? Me too, to a degree. I still have to fix it. Silly mistake on my part.
Off the bat, I couldn't decipher which file(s) I needed to simple revert back to in my backups, so I re-uploaded my entire photopost directory from backup.
This caused a new problem. My photopost home page loads and displays, so do the category pages. But the individual photo pages don't load any data other than the header and footer. Here's a link to the gallery: Main Index - Woodworking Project Picture Photo Gallery with Furniture, Cabinetry, Musical Instruments, and More
What should be my next course of action?
