Have you fixed it?

Usually, I don't have any issues once the images/css load. The issue is if the cookie gets deleted or resets.

I haven't yet got to the bottom of it but I have left a post for VBgamer (I know he's busy) so will wait but this topic and everyone in it has been super helpful.

Thanks for the kind comment. 😊

It's that first load that's the issue.

I don't know why, but it happened a lot more frequently with the database connection type not selected. I think that was caused by the migration not selecting it as I used the repair-setting.php tool to check the folders/directories and realised the database type wasn't selected.

Without it selected, nothing but text loaded more than it would with it. 🥺

Thanks also, for the kind words.


It's caused by the removal of '/index.php' from the QueryString.php

I've just replicated the issue on my test site by making the edit. Question is, does anyone happen to know an alternative means of getting around this? I know it seems extremely fussy and, I acknowledge this 100%. I just prefer to have mydomain.com/


There used to be a way to do this or a mod or something a while back. (to remove /index.php) I don't know if it's still around or not.

I haven't found anything searching SMF's mod site.

The good thing is knowing the cause, I'm just hopeful that a workaround can be found.

Thank you everyone for all your input and help.
