Blank screen after submitting of the message

Post by rtrzicky » 02 Jan 2018, 15:17

Hi there,

I encountered this problem after submitting new message, GB version 3.0.6, Joomla 3.8.3.

It is caused by "break" command not in loop in "components/com_phocaguestbook/controllers/phocaguestbook.php", line 200, in cases where blocked ip addresses are checked.

I replaced "break" with "return false" as work around. Please, can you check it and fix it for new release?

With best regards
Radek

Hi, can you paste the exact error message?
Which version of PHP do you run?
Thank you, Jan

Hi, I'm running on PHP 7.1.
Error message is:

Fatal error: 'break' not in the 'loop' or 'switch' context in /...here_was_path_to_root.../components/com_phocaguestbook/controllers/phocaguestbook.php on line 200

I tried other PHP versions. Version 7.0.(19) behaves the same way. The problem disappears with version 5.6(.30).

Hi, yes, in PHP 7 the break command cannot be on specific places.

But are you really sure you run the 3.0.6 or did you make there some modifications? Because I don't see any break on line 200

OK, it's a shame...

I'm sorry and I apologize for your time, you are right, I had version 3.0.3 installed. I did many updates and I updated guestbooks too but it seems not on this server. I must search in protocols how it can happen...

I will send you some donation :-) (which I planned to do anyway, so I have a one more reason :-))
