thanks guys. everything went well.
for future reference. Idid did large upgrade ~via~ webinstall.php, then chmod, and tp thru the package manager. thanks for your concern G6. BTW Many here have helped me out, but between you and Rebelrose, I must say. You taught me well. what happens is I don't do the installs much, and I forget a little thing here or there.
IN this case. I had planetsloee as default frontpage, and triton as forum default.
I also clicked , but did not uninstall 1.1.2 upgrade when I was removing Mods. that is probably the error that caused the whole 1.1.2 folders, but no 1.1.2 package...roflmao, Getit? later. thanks.
Now if I could just get my image links to work consistantly.
