State the nature of your problem:

I got this error when deleting a poll:

SQL Error : 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 2

DELETE FROM phpbb_vote_results WHERE vote_id =

Line : 544
File : /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/

On another note, the polls don't get pruned with the rest of the topics. I know this is probably because the user has chosen a never ending poll or a really long one. But how do I stop this?

What do your includes/functions_posts.php's lines 540 and 541 look like?

Thanks for the help zeroK, I'll check it when I get home tonight.

I'm getting exactly the smae error as well. I dunno if it's due to patching it to 2.0.6d. In any case this is the offending line in the file:

Code: Select all

			WHERE vote_id = $poll_id";
		if (!$db->sql_query($sql))
			message_die(GENERAL_ERROR, 'Error in deleting poll', '', __LINE__, __FILE__, $sql);
Anyone can advise on this?
