got an error with this mod installed
2.0.15

so I go to view the members on my forum in my admin
admin >members
and I have an error

Code: [Select]
syntax error, unexpected '||' (T_BOOLEAN_OR)
Any other mods installed? Where is the error happening and in what file? There may be a conflict somewhere.

I would recommend uninstalling it first before updating your forum. Then you'll be able to see the exact line that is causing the conflict when you try to add it again. Make sure you're also using the latest version of Stop Spammer available.

And the link mentioned is how you fix it - https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=283309.msg3957547#msg3957547
I have opened the sources/managemembers.php file and searched for that string as listed in the link you posted:

Since you uninstalled Stop Spammer already, you may need to look for the opposite code so you can re-add it manually. Just to be safe, also do a search for anything related to StopSpammer in those files before installing again in case you ended up with duplicate code or something that wasn't properly removed.

Im not sure what you mean by opposite code...
  I scanned the entire document using a search function for anything spammer related and there is nothing.

Thank you BTW for assisting me with this, i do appreciate your help.

per the parse of the mod, it added
Code: [Select]

// Load Stop Spammer Functions
if ('all' == $_REQUEST['sa'] || 'browse' == $_REQUEST['sa'] || 'query' == $_REQUEST['sa'] || 'approve' == $_REQUEST['sa'])
{
global $sourcedir;
require_once($sourcedir . '/StopSpammer.php');
}



but if one thing was left behind, there might be more...

Would there be a reference to stop spammer in each instance?
 The one i posted is the only thing that appears with a search for "stop spammer"
Ill remove that instance and see if anything changes.

I deleted that first piece of code, still get the error,when i click the "information" icon on the  ]far left of the line with the error i get the following.
can i run the update, then find and replace what i see manually?
what is this telling me exactly?

Code: [Select]
Code: (Find) [Select]

if ($context['sub_action'] == 'query' && !empty($_REQUEST['params']) && empty($_POST))
$_POST += safe_unserialize(base64_decode($_REQUEST['params']));

Code: (Replace) [Select]

if ($context['sub_action'] == 'query' && empty($_POST))
{
if (!empty($_REQUEST['params']))
{
$_POST += safe_unserialize(base64_decode($_REQUEST['params']));
}
elseif ($context['browser']['is_ie'] && !empty($_SESSION['params']))
{
$_POST += $_SESSION['params'];
unset($_SESSION['params']);
}
}


EDIT:
so i couldnt find this code in the managemembers.php

Code: [Select]
if ($context['sub_action'] == 'query' && !empty($_REQUEST['params']) && empty($_POST))
$_POST += safe_unserialize(base64_decode($_REQUEST['params']));

added it, uploaded and the update ran without a hitch.

thanks for the patience, i really dont spend a lot of time with this type of back end stuff i am just trying to make sure i understand what i should do before i do it.
So, do i understand correctly that i should run the stop spammer install even with the errors , THEN go back in, and modify the files as directed in the instructions that have been given?

essentially, yes

except you are seeing way too many errors. You should only see ONE failure because there is only one bit of code that needs manual editing

So perhaps a fresh install is the best course of action?
