Can't create categories.

edited February 2012 in Questions

Just did a fresh clean install of Vanilla, but am having trouble creating categories... as a matter of fact, I can't create any! It just returns the "Bonk" error. All I've been able to do is edit the default general discussion category.

Everything else is working well. Any pointers as to what is causing this?

    we can give pointers without the error.


    $Configuration['Garden']['Debug'] = TRUE;
    $Configuration['Garden']['Errors']['MasterView'] = 'derror.master.php';

    in config

    grep is your friend.

  • Thank you for that tip! Here is the out of adding a new category:

    Duplicate entry '2147483647' for key 'PRIMARY'

    insert GDN_Category (UrlCode, AllowDiscussions, Name, Description, InsertUserID, UpdateUserID, DateInserted, DateUpdated) values (:UrlCode, :AllowDiscussions, :Name, :Description, :InsertUserID, :UpdateUserID, :DateInserted, :DateUpdated) The error occurred on or near: /html/forums/library/database/class.database.php

    275: 276: if (!is_object($PDOStatement)) { 277: trigger_error(ErrorMessage('PDO Statement failed to prepare', $this->ClassName, 'Query', $this->GetPDOErrorMessage($this->Connection()->errorInfo())), E_USER_ERROR); 278: } else if ($PDOStatement->execute($InputParameters) === FALSE) { 279: trigger_error(ErrorMessage($this->GetPDOErrorMessage($PDOStatement->errorInfo()), $this->ClassName, 'Query', $Sql), E_USER_ERROR); 280: } 281: } else { 282: $PDOStatement = $this->Connection()->query($Sql); 283: }

  • Thank you, I will follow that process.
