I missed a line of code for one of the mods when I uploaded a fresh copy of the common.php file to fix the fatal error the board had after removing the extreme styles and simple subforums mods
The cause of the error became apparent after entering the edits for the Search Bot Indexing mod into the function.php file, I went through the edits for that mod and realised I had not added a line of code in the common.php file
So all is how it should be again
Thanks very much for your help Robert, it's very much appreciated.
