    "starttopic" doesnt work Link to this post

    Hi,

    I installed the forum module to my site and I really like it. Since I added some more features, eg the mollom-Module, the method "starttopic" doesn´t work any more. If a user of any group tries to start a new topic, a white page with no html-code at all appears, nor any error message. Since I´m new to saphire and SilverStripe I don´t know how to track down this error. The method starttopic resides at the Forum_Controller.

    I´m sure it´s just a small error, I tried to find it for hours. I appreciate any help or hint.

    I might have solved this by myself. Since I was developing on my localhost and had no internet access, the mollom spam protection did not work well and i got these odd results.

    I'd be interested to learn how you resolved this issue.

    I have the same issue in that I'm unable to start a new forum topic (SS 2.3.1 and latest stable forum release - I've tried the SVN trunk too). I seem to be able to post to the forum on existing topics but I'm unable to start new ones.

    I´m quiet shure, that the bug had something to do with the mollom-module or the spamprotection-module. I didn´t fix that bug nor did I find it´s cause. Although my system is in developer mode I had no error message at all. The problem went away when I came back from hollyday and had internet access again.

    I just had this problem, and it was an issue with my theme, which has its own custom forums theme. I think that the problem was the following line in Forum_starttopic.ss:

    $ReplyForm

    which should be:

    $ReplyForm(true)

    My solution was to copy the Forum_starttopic.ss from the forum/template/ folder. I suppose deleting the custom forum theme would work too.
