Unable To Create A Topic
« on: May 22, 2020, 02:48:31 AM »
Hello.

I am unable to post on my website after upgrading the SMF version. I keep getting this message: "The following error or errors occurred while posting this message: The message body was left empty."

I have attached a screenshot.

A story about Anthony Joshua. I have been encountering this same issue posting in other sections for three weeks.

Yes, but what? Did it include pictures, embedded videos?

Did you write it in Word and copy it into SMF? (Especially, if you did this, did you begin with a quote mark or an apostrophe?)

None of that, Arantor. I posted the content directly as I used to. This problem started when my IT guy upgraded to SMF version 2.0.1.7. I was told it was a bug that came with the upgrade that is responsible for this issue. So, I'm clueless as to how to fix it.

Yes, but what content? It actually matters so that I can help you fix this.

Okay. Here is an excerpt of what I want to post:

"IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has no problem with Mike Tyson making his rung return.

Tyson, 53-years-old and retired since 2005, has been teasing a potential ring return - with the idea of taking part in exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion released several viral video clips in recent weeks, with the retired boxer showcasing his speed, power and physical form."


P.S: My challenge is, regardless of what content I post in the message body, it keeps telling me it is empty.

Oh, no, Kindred. I'm pasting from same browser as I used to. The only thing that changed is that I upgraded to version 2.0.1.7. Ever since I have been unable to post.
