NewBB 2 - Can't edit forum settings

Hi all, when I create a forum category, then create forums inside the category, I can't modify them anymore. I go as admin in the "forum" tab, clic the pencil to edit one of the forum, and I get a page with the admin menu on the left, the forum tabs on the top (index, categories, forum, etc), and under it a frame with the label "Editing Forum:", but that's all, there is nothing inside to change.
I use XOOPS 2.0.17 and NewBB 2.02, and I did all the installations as follows.
I don't know what can be the problem...
Thanks so much in advance for any suggestion.

Re: NewBB 2 - Can't edit forum settings

I remember i having this problem aswell. Turn on PHP debug and see if you can locate the problem. I edited /admin/myblocksadmin.php and now can i edit my forums.
I love Xoops!

Re: NewBB 2 - Can't edit forum settings

php debug comes up with no errors so thats no help. This must be a bigger problem and i just cant seem to figure out what it is. Plaese help community because a site without a forum or XOOPS withou forum is just nothing.

Re: NewBB 2 - Can't edit forum settings

I updated XOOPS to the very latest version, 2.0.17.1, I checked everything possible to check, permissions of XOOPS and the forum, versions, everything, but I could not solve the problem. So what to do now?
I don't know what to do about that problem.
I lost a valuable amount of time trying to fix something that I have no idea what can be.
Do you suggest me to install a different forum?
Which one you can succest me? CBB?

By the way, lately I see that XOOPS is going down and down, incompatibilities and bugs are found daily while you install and make it work, modules are abandoned, translations made at half way, it is not possible to keep up 6-7 basic modules but that work fine with each other?

I'm thinking seriously to shift to some other CMS after I installed around 15 XOOPS sites in some years

Re: NewBB 2 - Can't edit forum settings

Yes, i can understand you very well. Had the same problems. Once i got a result with updating Frameworks and XOOPS Editiors. But attention: its important to use the same language settings by both.
Indeed. CBB is the best forum in the XOOPS world. But sometime it seems me like a time detonator, when some funktions are going to nirvna (the big cero)over night without visible reasions. So its the best for you to make backups daily...(not for CBB only)
