Hi, I installed a new VB 4.1.11, followed by installing PP Pro 8.0.3. Then I imported the PP's XML file into VB. But when I go to my forum main page, the page completely changed. It was mostly in text form. It lost the graphics display. May I know the cause of this. Thanks.
I made some progress today. I was able to "solve" the problem by disabling the standard products/plugins that come with VB4.1.11 publish suite. These products are:
Skimlinks Plugin 4.1.11 Official Skimlinks plugin for vBulletin
vBulletin Blog 4.1.11 Personal web log, integrated with vBulletin.
vBulletin CMS 4.1.11 Content Management System
The procedure is to first disable all these three products through VB's Manage Products menu. Then, I need to uncheck each of the PP8 plugins (at the VB's Plugin Manager menu). Click "Save Active Status" button. While still in the VB Plugin Manager menu, check all the PP8 plugins, and then click the "Save Active Status" button.
Althought the problem (lost of style) seems to go away, I have no idea what is causing this problem. Do you have any idea, Chuck?

Unfortunately your page source does not give us any info as to what your issue would be. The page source is identical between a working copy and a non working copy. The issue is your style is not being found. I see no reason why this would be from installing a product plugin other than vbulletins.
I believe though since we see no issues on publically installed copies this has to be related to your home IP accessible install
Are you going to install on a real web server? Are you actually going to install using a domain name?
I am not a server tech so I do not have extensive knowledge here on setting up servers. I handle software related problems.
Yes, we will install it at live server with a domain name once it is working. Currently we are running PP5.2 and VB3.7 with that domain name on another server. So, I cannot switch over the domain name till everything is working on the new server. By the way, the new server (as well as the current test server) is using Windows server 2008. Are there anything I should look out for? I saw a thread which you mentioned we use "/" insted of "\" in the server path. It is still the same for PP8?
