Having troubles with the new installation also, I did a boo-boo and I dont know what..its kinda one of those things you try to fix but it only gets worse scenerios.
Anyway, I installed SMF1.1FInal and then Installed TP97 and get 500 errors, I uninstall TP97 and all is fine... on one theme. The TP doesnt show up on the forum copyright either, and I have no blocks.. the other themes give me errors also, just one does not. What the hell did I do?!
Also how to I integrate the database back into the new SMF if I decide to wipe everything out and start over?
