Just a small thing.

I have v2.6.7 installed but all the info in the admin shows v2.6.6.

Not a biggy but thought you should know

I have just updated the site to SMF 2.1.1 and I'm getting an error, as seen below.

I have run repair_settings. I have been into maintenance and done everything in there but it still keep popping up every 1 minute. I also removed the shouts from the database table but it's still happening every minute.

That error is showing on several different parts of your forum.
If you backtrace one of those json errors from a page that is not arcade related, it doesn't reference the arcade.
IMO this is something else causing the error.



Chen Zhen

PHP has a function to look at recent JSON errors.
I don't have permission to run a PHP block on your forum else I would have tested this myself.

If I was to run the upgrade again would that help to clear it? I don't know what to do with that link you posted

Chen Zhen


With your portal you can run PHP code by creating a PHP block that is not active.
Then you punch in some code and use preview to test it.



I see you emptied your other shoutbox.
Is that other shoutbox part of TinyPortal?
Are you having issues with people posting smileys from their smart phone?
I saw your comment in it & am wondering if you are having an issue like that?
This may be the cause of your error.
I can fix it..

Ok I think I get the idea about the link.

Before I did the upgrade I uninstalled all the themes and packages, this includes Nibogo's shoutbox, but his shoutbox leaves behind database tables which I didn't remove from the database so could that be the issue.

If not I did a backup of the site and the database so I might just revert back and start again. I did activate the arcade shoutbox briefly and post 2 messages in it, then I disabled it again. When the error messages appeared I deleted the messages directly from the database table. The TP shoutbox hasn't been used on the site before today.

Ok I tried to sleep and couldn't, so I go the site and no errors...what did you do  ;D

Whatever it was thank you

I didn't do anything except activate & test the arcade shoutbox.
Also, I thought you cleared the error log because it wasn't me.

If you look at the moderation log it doesn't show anyone clearing the error log.

Hmmm...how odd is all that then. I did clear the log prior to going to bed as it was showing 300+ errors, when I went back I expected to see anther load but there were none. If the arcade shoutbox is disabled does the error come back?

Chen Zhen


There was approx. 64 errors when I checked your site about 2 hours ago but they are gone now.

Chen Zhen


IMO it was likely nneonneo's shoutbox.
That mod is old and unless someone updated it for 4 byte emoji's, those will likely jam it up.
All someone had to do was use an emoji from their smart phone & it will likely crash it.
It's easily amended if you know how to do it.
I used a wordpress code for my EhPortal shoutbox.

Chen Zhen


If the error comes up again let me know.
Post the reference line to Load.php because I forgot which one it was  ???
I think it had something to do with a funny character in a cache file and I'm thinking it might be a SMF 2.1 glitch that may need to be fixed.


Dave

I've just been there and the only errors are ones related to a guest trying to register and giving an sslredirect error.

Thank you very much for looking into and fixing it. In the mean time I'll delete the tables for the old shoutbox
