    I Can't Flush Link to this post

    I'm not talking toilet trash.

    I'm running SS 2.2.3 and recently installed the forum module (which I downloaded at the same time as SS2.2.3), I made a few updates to the forum CSS in the theme, and that went fine, then I made a few more edits to the CSS, tried a /?flush=1 and now it won't flush.

    All the pages still display and I can update content and use the forum with no problem, I just can't flush on any page.
    My CSS is now valid, but it never was before this error.

    The standard yellow screen with red font error flashes on screen then I get a (firefox) "Content Encoding Error, The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression."

    Any help would go down great!

    Thanks.

    Hello Seagull,

    you have to be logged in to flush. I can not imagine that it´s the CSS changes fault that you can´t flush. Anyways I would disable CSS by renaming the files and try again.

    Best regards

    Hi, I'm not trying to /db/build?flush=1 I'm just trying to /?flush=1

    I tried to change the name of the file, this did disable the styling but still no success.

    I uninstalled the Forum module and there was no trouble flushing the site. I installed the forum module again and i've got the same error.

    forum. I have a forum theme as well (site is based on a template), perhaps i should try to delete this template see if that narrows it down?

    I you deinstall the forum module, it´s tables will not be deleted. Before reinstalling the forum module I would delete them by hand. Maybe this will do it.

    so do I delete any tables that begin with forum. That probably sounds like a dumb question but I have to make sure

    Yes. If you delete a modules foulder and flush the db by "dev/build" all tables of that module will get an "_obsolete_" appended to the tables name as a prefix. Just delete all tables with that name. Be sure to make backups, in case the contain any valuable data.
