MyBB Common Problems and Errors

Hello MyBB! I forgot I typed this up a while ago but never posted it I wanted to add on to it but thought I will post it and let the community add on to it by replying. Hopefully this helps someone.

Error:
“Authorization code mismatch. Are you accessing this function correctly? Please go back and try again.” - This error began happening in MyBB 1.8.16. You get this error because MyBB introduced some crucial changes aimed towards better security regarding users authentication in 1.8.16 and above.

Fixe:
- Add the missing code to the needed templates. - https://community.mybb.com/thread-218862.html


Error:
“Inline Moderation Not Working” - There is a lot of things that can’t break inline moderation like a outdated theme, outdated info in the header, plugin conflicts, javascript, etc.

Fixes:
- Change version numbers in header template and/or update 2 core files (easy). - https://community.mybb.com/thread-206896.html
- Check for duplicate jquery code in header and add jquery noconflict (old). - https://community.mybb.com/post-812202.html
- Disable all plugins and if it fixes it enable all plugins 1 by 1 until you find the plugin that is causing it and remove it. - https://community.mybb.com/thread-135587...#pid979926
- Update settings.php and the header template. - https://community.mybb.com/thread-216120.html

Common Problems and Questions:

- Change the logo from theme settings. - https://docs.mybb.com/1.6/Help-Change-Logo/

In the 'Common Problems and Questions' section, you need to clarify that this is for the DEFAULT MyBB theme. Not for any other theme that one might find in the MyBB.com 'Extend' section or other theme author's websites.

In fact, it should be mentioned at the beginning of that post that most if not all statements found in the 'MyBB Common Problems and Errors' should be noted that those changes are applied to the original install of MyBB forum software.

If an admin had bought or taken over a website that has some of its core functions modified, those above changes may or may not work due to the previous owner making those changes.
