  • Admin can not read PMs

    Hi All!

    After upgrade on official licensed "vBulletin 3.8.1 Patch Level 1" forum Administrator can not read PMs at all
    Only empty web-page is shown while admin opens any private message (for example, with help of link such as http://***/forum/private.php?do=showpm&pmid=51230)

    Fatal PHP error appears in log:
    [Thu Mar 19 17:53:47 2009] [error] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function query_first() on a non-object in /***/www/forum/includes/functions_newpost.php(1881) : eval()'d code on line 14

    All forum users do not have troubles with PMs.
    This problem affects only Administrator...

    Any ideas?

    I posted this in your thread on

    Line 1881 of functions_newpost.php is:
    PHP Code:
    ($hook vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('private_newpm_reply')) ? eval($hook) : false
    So,your error is being caused by a modification using the private_newpm_reply hook location. If you know which modification it is, just turn it off. Or, turn off the modifications one-by-one until you find the culprit. Then, go find the modification thread and see if a fix has been posted for this issue.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

      Thank you, Lynne!
      I found the product that caused this problem in 3.8.1 and turned it off.
