AJAX being difficult and rude.


So as the title says, ajax.php is giving weird results, primarily for quick edit and quick reply. More accurately, when I tcpdump'd the output, it was sending a tab (0x09) character immediately before the <?xml tag in the response xml. I dug into class_xml.php and ajax.php, disabled any plugins that used xml_* hooks and ajax_* hooks, and no luck. Any idea where else I should look?

You might try disabling all plugins, there maybe be some in global.php and other files included by that.

Then I don't know but if I were trying to figure it out I'd probably put some code in ajax.php (or create a plugin on one of those hooks) to see if it's actually being output by the call to print_xml() (like maybe write the output to a file) although looking over the code briefly, I don't see how that would be happening (you probablly came to the same conclusion).

The tab character seems to be output by the web server, not anything in vBulletin.

I created a plain html file with "<- see, tab!", and sure enough, the tab was there.

Update 2:

As kh99 implied, one of the includes started with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Most are amateur

My day job is IT Manager and I've been cutting code since the '70s.
But in this context I'm amateur is as much as I do vB related work simply to enhance our site.
