No content area on "Send A Message" - phplist 2.10.10 update

Postby karma » 3:12am, Wed 21 Oct, 2009

I just upgraded from 2.10.4 to 2.10.10. After finishing according to the instructions, I had the same problem many have had. My phplist-Send A Message page was completely blank underneath the tabs, as shown in the attachment.

My installation stats:

PHP 4.4.9
mySQL 5.0.81
asp_tags Off

My database encoding:

I tried all of the many listed fixes, to no avail - nothing worked:

- turn FCKEditor off in configure.php file (DIDN'T WORK)
(strange that this doesn't do anything for the problem....)

- remove lines 589-592 of /admin/fckphplist.php (DIDN'T WORK)

- change lines 48-50 of /admin/FCKeditor/fckeditor.html (DIDN'T WORK)
(actually, it's now lines 119-120)

- replace entire FCKEditor folder with newly downloaded one (DIDN'T WORK)

- replacing the send_core.php file with the one from here:
(which simply implements the switching of lines 1034 and 1040 according to the instructions in that thread and elsewhere.)

I would not call this a "minor" bug, since it has taken me more than a day to research all the threads, try all the fixes, and finally find something that works, but that is how this issue is classified in the mantis bug database ( I'm going to try and add something to that bug report to bump this up to where it should be.

Thank you so much for this post! It boggles my mind that I had to read 2-year old topics to try to find out why this software doesn't work out of the box. And I almost went through DreamHost to create a php.ini file that I could edit just to try that solution. I never even read a single thing about the "send_core.php" file until this post, and that replacement did the ticket! Thanks again for your community service :)

Im lucky finding your help. It worked for me (version 2.10.13 - fresh install). :mrgreen:

Deleting this lines from send_core.php file:
# $utf8_subject = $subject;
# $utf8_from = $from;
# if (strcasecmp($GLOBALS['strCharSet'], 'utf-8') <> 0) {
# $utf8_subject = iconv($GLOBALS['strCharSet'],'UTF-8',$utf8_subject);
# $utf8_from = iconv($GLOBALS['strCharSet'],'UTF-8',$utf8_from);
# }
