  • [Forum] contentid is missing upon reporting VM

    Hi, when a user reports a VM on my forum they're presented with "A required field called contentid is missing or has an invalid value." error message

    However despite the error message, a thread is still created with the VM report.

    Also it seems on random VM's once you click report it takes you to an error page saying "No User specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"
    So users can't seem to even report some VMs at all.

    Any ideas?

      Please make sure you are not using a version of PHP higher than 7.1.33. Newer versions may parse variables differently and are not compatible with vBulletin 4.2.5. This variable parsing can cause empty or null values to be passed to queries and they will fail.
