I didn't realize I was updating to a new version and by mistake updated with old plugins still active.

Says I have critical errors.

I download the 3.0 plugins and updated these but didn't fix it. Cleared cache, not sure what to do as looks like working but not fully working.

Okay so I deleted the 2.0 and downloaded 1.9.9.1 to get back up and running. When I did this it changed all of my layout and lost my look. For example the avatar pictures of the people are all square now when they were round before???

@jasontoth After updated to wpForo 2, YOU CAN'T go back to 1.9.x just be deleting the plugin and install 1.9.

The Database is changed.

You MUST restore the full database back.

Maybe I was using the

Simplified (1.0.0) theme? How would I get that back if I was? Not sure if I was but maybe that is why it looks different?

I found the Simplified option but I get an error when I try to use it. See screen shot.

@jasontoth There is a message as you can see "Forum update error".

Not really sure what to do as I have had a lot of activity since in the past day, so won't I loose all of this if I try and revert back to the database?

Also all regular activities on form look to be okay so maybe best to just leave it in classic and figure out on the site why it didn't work on the 2.0 update?

Here is the forum link.

Also you don't mention what Critical Error you have? Enable Wordpress DEBUG to a LOG and let us know.

@jasontoth downgrading from 2.x to 1.x is not supported unless you you have a database backup from before the upgrade. So you probably have errors on your databases and I would advise you to put your forum under maintenance mode until you can sort it out before you run into a corrupted database issue which will make matters worse.
