  • an absolutely useless forum (message too short)

    message is too short error

    I feel like an oath for asking. You should know.

    I keep getting a message is too short error when I try to post
    a new thread or reply to a thread. It doesn't matter how many
    characters I type, I can't post anything on the forum.
    (I get the same message) I changed something somewhere, to manage
    making a forum absolutely useless. If you know what causes this,
    would you kindly reply, with the corrective measure.
    I have been adding some products and editing style templates
    such as the header, navbar, eTc lately.


    I appreciate anyone's help.

    First just disable your hacks. Any better?
    No? You may revert those template edits and start editing from the beginning.

      Once again, I am no genius.
      Hacks, probably have a dozen, I'm not sure where to find a hack
      in the AdminCP to disable it. I know I installed the ThankYou hack
      not long ago. A hack is _______ ? Anyway, I appreciate your effort.
      I am just a little bit shy of being what you might consider Administrator
      material, probably. But hey, I'm closer to understanding.

      thnx

        flash swf logo/header

        And another thing. How come I keep getting an adobe request
        for a debugger every time I open my forum using Explorer?
        Works just fine with Firefox.
        What could be wrong with my flash swf header code?

        see my forum, and explain at will ???????????

        You could test to try and write a post while your curious !

        And the reason I can not post may come from the twitter and facebook mods I installed at the same time.
        (as you say - hacks) ? I have them some what disabled, I guess. At least they don't show anywhere I
        am aware of.

        thnx

          Sorry,I don't know which of your modifications is causing the trouble.
          You have to find how to disable them in the ACP.
          Still problem?

          Disable hooks:
          Note: To temporarily disable the plugin system, edit config.php and add this line right under <?php

          define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);
          Still problem?
          Create a new style without parent and try to view your forum with that.
          Still problem?
          Revert your templates.
          Still problem?
          Don't know what it could be.Maybe some extra .xml file?

            I think maybe it is the auto tagging plug in that I installed that
            caused the problem. I'm still trying to validate that.
            Thank you for the attention.

            I updated to 3.8.4 and that seems to have corrected many of my
            minor infractions.

            thnx again

              The problem is BACK.

              I have been getting mySQL database errors over the past week.
              My Host, says: " The reason why mysql was down was because this server was being rebooted due to a upgrade fix to the kernel around the time it was responding to mysql. This issue has now been resolved and you should no longer have any issues. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns ".

              I can post nothing on my FORUM.
              This is not, a good thing. Can I get some help, please?

                What is the exact problem or error? I suspect db corruption. Have you tried repairing the database?

                        Assuming the db info in your config.php file is correct, this is a server issue. Please see this page for the causes of this error:

                          I'd give ya a temp username and password, but my host is using it to investigate this problem from their end.

                          Once they are finished diagnosing their with an opinion, I will pass it on to you.

                            I just uploaded and installed the new config.php yesterday with the 3.8.4 upgrade.
                            I understand, I will aim at that database info. thnx Steve
