I did the install step by step following the instructions. All went smooth. Saw the gallery, added categories, etc... Then i noticed my main forum page would display nothing but a blank page (/forums/index.php) and same thing with my portal.php (vbindex). After checking and re-checking my mods on the files, i uninstalled it, removed all references to the vbgallery as well as all the mods i did on the files and removed the directory as well. Forum still broken. What kind of changes does the install script make to the database that would cause this. cause all the forum files are back to the orignal right now and it is still not working
I don't know of anything the Gallery install does that would cause that.. And you did run the Uninstall for Gallery, right?
yes, i did the uninstall and then removed all the lines of code that i added to the various files in the readme. Just to rule out some variables, i'm not new at this and yes i checked, checked, and checked again
There's no way the gallery installation would cause your forum pages to come up blank, unless you did something weird with the install. I'd recommend getting fresh, un-hacked versions of the files you modified, upload them, then try again.
