    My beautyful Program E Bot, worked fine till my webhost updated to PHP5.

    I see no Errors, but the page "Talk.php" shows empty. also when viewing the Bron page. when accessing by IE browser.

    Any ideas on what causes this "error" or how to fix this?

    Many thanks!

      This is due to PHP 5's change in the way it handles HTML form variables. In Talk.php HTTP_POST_VAR is used and this should now be changed to _REQUEST. In the next couple of days I will update the download and CVS with this change ... and a few others.

      Regards,

      Anne.

      Thanks for the reply,

      I tryed to change all the $HTTP_POST_VARS to $_REQUEST in Talk.php, that didn't do the trick, so I guess i've to wait for a couple of days then :P

      I've never had such good and fast help somewhere.
      you're doing a great job here!

      Thank you Anne.

       
    • I used $_POST and worked like charm.
