Active topics page kicking out errors

Post by Daniel Semler »

Hi ya,

This started last night. I see these error messages on the Active topics page of the forums
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file [ROOT]/search.php on line 1059: compact(): Undefined variable: zebra
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file [ROOT]/search.php on line 1247: compact(): Undefined variable: zebra

Doesn't appear to break function but something's not quite right.

Thx

I'm getting the same sort of error.

I'm intrigued as to what the variable "zebra" is in reference to...

(looks like some sort of PHPBB update gone wrong!)

Could this be related to the problem that feedly.com hasn't received RSS updates for a few days?

Ouch. I am seeing the same bug. I haven't upgraded phpBB3 recently, this might be due to a change on our ibiblio server.

Update: I have tried a few things, but have not fixed it. The board works fine, except for the errors. I have time to look at this in more depth tomorrow and hope to fix it then.

Indeed the RSS feed seems to have a similar problem, but not identical.

http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/app.php/feed

Code: Select all

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file [ROOT]/phpbb/feed/controller/feed.php on line 319: compact(): Undefined variable: forum_id
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file [ROOT]/phpbb/feed/controller/feed.php on line 319: compact(): Undefined variable: mode
And this breaks the functionality.

I think this is fixed now.

Thanks, Jonathan! Having had to debug such issues many times myself through the years, I appreciate your persistence, especially during the holidays.

Blessings,
Kirk
