  • Signature Error Messages - vBulletin or Host problem?

    I'm encountering a problem when users update/preview signatures. The following error code reads at the top of the page:

    Warning: getimagesize() [function.getimagesize]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [path]/profile.php(2283) : eval()'d code on line 20
    Warning: getimagesize(*file name here for example*) [function.getimagesize]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [path]/profile.php(2283) : eval()'d code on line 20
    It doesn't seem to actually affect anything but I'd rather not have a bunch of error code flashing at the top of the screen when people want to edit their signatures. Is this a vBulletin malfunction or something I need to contact my host about? If so, what exactly will they need to fix?

    Many thanks,

    Line 2283 of profile.php in your version is this:

        ($hook = vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('profile_updatesignature_start')) ? eval($hook) : false;

    This means a plugin using the 'profile_updatesignature_start' hook location is causing the issue. You need to go to:

    AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Plugin Manager

    ...and find what plugin is using that location then speak to the author for support with this.

      Thank you, Trevor. Turns out it was a problem with this hack - HS External Signature Limiter.
      I'm not entirely sure what the malfunction is but I've disabled it for now.
