You can do everything AmigoJack said except don't replace the code = just remove the 'Re: ' from the PHP and leave it as:

''

Example:

Code: Select all

$post_data['post_subject'] = ((strpos($post_data['post_subject'], 'RE: ') !== 0) ? 'Re: ' : '') . censor_text($post_data['post_subject']);
Just change it to:

Code: Select all

$post_data['post_subject'] = ((strpos($post_data['post_subject'], '') !== 0) ? '' : '') . censor_text($post_data['post_subject']);
The code breaks, otherwise. All you are doing now is just removing the "Re: " without breaking code.

You're leaving in '' - as such - that means that nothing will be added as a code prefix.

That article is from long ago (see its date) and wouldn't affect nowadays quote replies or PMs. However, it still won't break 3.0.8 code.

Weird - it breaks my stock 3.0.8 on my testing server. I'll just /shrug with this one, then.

Since you're sparing the details I'll assume you just incorrectly saved the PHP file.
