Probably something went wrong when editing functions_privmsgs.php. Check the first line.

Okay seeing as Pit$bull locked my last post off (which wasn't a duplicate posting as it contained different error message !) :evil:

Can someone please, for the love of God, please tell me what the fix is for this problem, where do I get the fix code and where do I place it within includes/functions/privmsgs.php ? Please :( I wouldn't mind only people here tend to lock posts for help off before they read what they're locking! Bit keen with the mod functions I think. I've only been trying to get an answer for this error/bug for 3 days now. Anyone ? The error I'm getting is pasted below and it also makes everything including fonts get twice the size as normal forum font and image size:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 3824: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions_privmsgs.php:1)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 3826: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions_privmsgs.php:1)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 3827: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions_privmsgs.php:1)
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions.php on line 3828: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /includes/functions_privmsgs.php:1)


Kind regards in advance!

from what i know, this error generally occurs because there is something either at the very begining of the file, or the very end of the file, that you edited -- the one listed in the error message.
1> open that file and make sure that there are no blank lines or space before the opening php tag, and after the closing php tag.
2> you should be using an editor like notepad++, which will allow you to save the file as type "utf8 without BoM", as many programs that you can use to edit phpbb files will attach some kind of formatting marker to the beginning of the file, which you can't see when editing it.
please do not PM me to ask for help. thanks.

Can someone please help me with this? If I open functions_prvmsgs up using wordpad or expression web to view coding, what should I be looking for? Do you mean just gaps / lines with no code on them? if so then yes theres a few empty lines throughout the script. Please can someone help me with this and then its finally sorted. :(

Never use wordpad or expression web for editing phpBB3 files. Use http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

Replace any files you have you have edited using wordpad or expression web with your backups or fresh files and reedit using Notepad++

Then refresh your template and clear your cache.

Redo the edits until they work. I can't tell you what to edit you have so many MODs and changes I could spend days.
If you are going to add MODS then be sure each one works and causes no issues before starting another, that way you know where to re edit.

What edits Pit? I wasn't aware there was any, hence this problem. I don't have any MODS installed. The only thing I've added was the Avalon style pack. :?
This PM error bug is really starting to get me down! Really just want to get this sorted else I feel I might just delete phpBB and everything on my forum :lol:

I'm sorry :oops:, That what happens when a topic is 'hijacked' (you posted in another persons topic)
Try replacing the functions_privmsgs.php file and see if that clears the error
Be sure to clear the cache after replaced.

Ok, just had a thought :idea: :lol:
If I was to simply download a fresh copy of phpBB 3.0.5 and extract the functions_prvmsgs.php from the download and then upload it to my server to replace my current online one, would this work?
If so would it mess with anything else i.e users PM or Forum permissions?


Reply to above Pit:
I posted in this topic because I thought thats what you done on a support Forum ? ? ? I mean had I started a new topic for the same thing, would'nt you have locked it? sorry but just thought the main purpose of a support Forum was to post in the correct section & topics with a problem then maybe, just maybe get a helpful reply. Sorry if I was wrong about that. Anyways Pit wasn't it me who originally started the other topic :lol:
regardless, who cares? lol I just want to get this error fixed ;)
