I have not tested 4.0.7 yest because it just came out, but really because I had not planned on it due to it being a maintenance release.

I generally don't update our forums unless there is a security release or major bug fix for reasons such as this. In other words I don't like introducing more bugs into my forums unless it is really important reason to upgrade, like a security release.

I will have to see if any others on 4.0.7 have this issue. That said, if any 4.0.7 users have the same issue please let me know and I will see about getting a fix out there.

after installing version v1.2.7 i went to log out to test things and got this message

Warning: require_once(includes/functions_ghsom.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_dm_user.php(1853) : eval()'d code on line 3

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/functions_ghsom.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/stcroixl/public_html/includes/class_dm_user.php(1853) : eval()'d code on line 3

after i uninstalled i was able to log out no problem. i am using the latest version vbulletin 4.0.7. i hope we can get this working with it

Paul, did you have this working before on an earlier version or just tried to install it now?

The first error says that you have not uploaded the files to the correct location or that they are corrupt. Please checkout the readme file and make sure you have uploaded everything correctly.

Since I see from a previous post, that you are a GlowHost customer we can probably handle this for you if you are not sure how to get the files where they need to be.

Hi Paul,

It looks like one of the techs has your vBulletin admincp logins at our helpdesk.

He is going to do a fresh install of this mod on your 4x board.

Whoops, I spoke too soon. I see you didn't provide the logins...

My understanding of the ticket is that you want instructions on how to do this correctly yourself. I think its a good idea. Learning the basic principles is commendable.

I am eager to hear your report.

awesome we got it working with 4.0.7 and i tried most functions and everything works great. thank you glow host. just nominated this mod for motm. i tried the banning, editing threads, banning a member and unbanning and it all works fine. thank you for the great support glowhost. as you know i am an older gentleman with very limited computer skills but learning every day

Greetings, I have found a bug.
When looking at the logs I came across this as a link:
Found in Akismet Database. Held for moderation:

When clicking it it doesn't redirect to the right location. The link points at: http://website.com/modcp/moderate.php?do=posts

Looks like it was hardcoded vs trying to pull the bburl variable.

I do not say this offten, but I think this is one of the best spam mods you can
have on your forum, and if you do not use this, then you deserve the spam
you get :) and I do not even fully have it enabled. My forum has been up for
40+ days, and not one spammer bot has gotten past registeration. I see more
spam bots try, rather then real traffic...I wonder if i should just open a spam forum :)
Use this mod along with duplicate accounts, no proxy, and you cant go wrong.

Hi TeknoSounds,

Your are correct. It is already fixed in 2.0 along with a slew of other log fixes. Thank you for the report in any case. We will hopefully see you back here in a couple of weeks when 2.0 becomes public. :)
