  • Tried To Edit Poll - Got Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PUBLIC

    Today I tried to edit a poll and I got this error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PUBLIC, expecting ']' in /home/*site*/public_html/forum/poll.php(495) : eval()'d code on line 97

    *site* replace the real bit.

    Editing a poll is not something we do on a daily basis, so I'm not sure when this error actually started.

    Is this a bug? Is this because of PHP 5?

    Have you added any modifications recently? Try this, download a fresh copy of the ZIP file from the Members Area and reupload all the original vB non-image files (except install.php). Make sure you upload these in ASCII format and overwrite the ones on the server. Also be sure to upload the admincp files to whichever directory you have set in your config.php file. Then run 'Suspect File Versions' in Diagnostics to make sure you have all the original files for your version and that none show 'File does not contain expected contents':

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Suspect File Versions

    [Note: In some cases you may also need to remove any of the listed .xml files in the includes/xml directory.]

    Next, disable all plugins.

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

    define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);

    Then if you still have this problem, create a new style and choose no parent style. This will force it to use the default templates. Finally empty your browser cache, close all browser windows then try again. Make sure you change to the new style and view your forums with it.

    Do you have the same problem?
