I've messed up the Description Box:-(
June 13, 2003 11:50AM
Specifically /index.php?f=7&page=props

Had already entered a few words followed by three image thumbnail references. Attempting to put in another thumbail reference has resulted in that whole page's code 'disappearing' (!?) into the tiny edit window leaving the rest of the control panel page 'empty'.

The file 7.php shows the stuff above but the entry line for ForumDescription looks truncated. I can edit 7.php directly (using PuTTY) but, overall, things pan out the the same way. Presumably something is misfeeding into the control page, the same old corruption results in the file 7.php, so I am well and truly messed up:~/

Any advice?

best wishes, Robert

Yes, indeed:-(

I think it might be a nasty buffer overflow issue. Had to delete a few core files to get things back to 'normal'. Whatever, I gave up trying to amend the text-based Phorum stuff into an image gallery. Have now adopted PHPwebalbum instead as it copes with graphic files extremely easily. Will continue, of course, to use the great Phorum code for my text-based forums:-)

best wishes, Robert
