Big Problem ... can't post or reply

Post by mattbussey » Fri Oct 01, 2010 1:51 am

Howdy everyone,

A forum that I work on is having some serious problems. Out of the blue, the ability to post to the forum or reply to a post became impossible. All that happens is that a blank page displays. The site is Everything seems to display just fine but posting simply doesn't work. Could someone help me out? Thanks.
