Computer errors: Unable to send PM

by BioHorn » Jan 13th, '11, 23:34


I have been having difficulties in posting and sending PM's over the past few days. Has anyone else had this issue? When I hit the back button and repost it usually works, but not for PM's. I am using Mac OS 10.4.11 on Firefox 3.5.16. Thanks.


Here is the error I receive with PM's:

Warning: Unexpected character in input: ''' (ASCII=39) state=1 in /usr/local/phpBB3/cache/queue.php on line 3

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /usr/local/phpBB3/cache/queue.php on line 3

When I go back and try again it give me this message:

You cannot make another post so soon after your last.

I have made administration aware of the problems.

Regarding the delay in being able to resend, this is mostly a spam prevention feature. The forum is set to prevent rapid submiting of posts and PMs.

Sorry about the problems everyone!

Please refer to the other topic located under Announcements so we do not have parallel topic on the same issue.

Locking this topic.
