  • Re: Strange...

    On my outgoing posts they do not have the text that the user typed in there. I gave it a test and the same thing happen except one line at the end of my message made it through.

    Example:
    ------------------
    The yellow brown fox jump over the fence. The yellow brown fox jump over the fence. The yellow brown fox jump over the fence.

    Nice day....
    ----------------

    The only text that made it through was "Nice day..." "SPAM filter" as well as "Apply replacement rules to outgoing posts" is set to OFF.

    Help????

    In Agent, the message shows up only as:


    I sent a reply to another usenet message as well that was only 1 line, and it showed up in the correct message thread in Agent, but only showed my signature. The text I typed was missing! So I'm assuming it's chopping off my first line or 2 of text. Any reason for this? I have the SPAM filter on outgoing messages set to OFF. Everything else looks good! HELP!!

          [2) I have noticed that dbforums and other sites running this hack have the section of the vbulletin home page layout differently to other sections - ie. no moderators and differnt styles. How do you do this. Please could you just point me in the right direction!

          Great hack - you should have charged

          Kim
          Yes great hack indeed. Does anyone have a template to share? I love the way it's laid out but need help in this area.

                  If you mean the empty posts, I don't see the error, so I can't really help. I've attached my newnews.pl. Compare it with yours and make sure it's the same. Pay particular attention to the post_outgoing_t, post_outgoing_p and post_outgoing functions.

                  • I'm having the problem that posts made from my board often have no text in the message when viewed on the newsgroup server - except the usenet signature and the tagline from the software.

                    However, if you type in quite a bit of data (say, 400 or more characters), it will post the message - in my tests, at least.

                    I'm running a pretty basic setup with the only mods to newnews.pl being the database server information setup.

                      Shaman, can you check your newnews.pl against mine in the post above.

                      With so many people reporting the error; there obviously seems to be a problem, but I haven't identified where or why.
