    [Forum] Can't post New Threads or Posts


    I cant post new threads or reply to posts, I get the following error. *This doesn't seem to effect the RSS posts that are posting okay.*

    Warning: require_once(includes/functions_ghsom.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/functions_newpost.php(532) : eval()'d code on line 5

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/functions_ghsom.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php5') in /homepages/44/d312036757/htdocs/yo/forum/includes/functions_newpost.php(532) : eval()'d code on line 5

    That is from a modification. There is no "functions_ghsom.php'" file in a default vBulletin install.

    Disable the modification and the error should go away.

      The file name functions_ghsom.php makes me think it's the Glowhost Spam-O-Matic Modification. If that is the case check on for a update, if for some reason your unable to continue using the mod see if a alternative solution fits your needs -

        Indeed, that is a Spam-O-Matic file. - Convert lowercase text and code to all uppercase! - Convert uppercase text and code to all lowercase!
