Fan in action

Setting up a new website for a client, using SMF forum integrated into OCP.
Website is returning this error:
PHP WARNING [2] array_key_exists() expects parameter 2 to be array, null given in sources/forum/smf2.php on line 1129 

On line 1129 of smf2.php, it says:
$GLOBALS['SMF_NEW']=array_key_exists('pm_ignore_list',$row) && function_exists('sha1');

I don't know what this means or how to fix it.
It won't let me into adminzone to see the stack trace (even with the safe mode link).

Since this file came with ocportal, I figured you guys would know how to fix it, so hopefully someone does :)

To me this looks like you have a cookie login to a deleted user. I have tried to work around it…

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
