Frequently Asked Questions:

??? - I keep seeing this line (or similar):
"Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home/vhosts/boco-test.rootschat.net/sit-main.php on line xxx"
Have I broken it ?
No, this is definitely an error. Please let me know (copy and paste it into a 'Reply' on this topic) along with any details of what you were doing when it appeared, so I can sort it out.
One instance of this I called the O'Crikey Syndrome -  Names with an apostrophe (O'Connel, O'Mara, etc) produced this error. This has now been fixed.

Hi Carol80,

I just checked the database, and found you as "Carol80 in New Zealand"

I have changed that to "Carol80"

Please have another go, and let me know

a) if it works, or
b) what name is coming up

Thanks,
Bob

Hi Carol,

I logged into the SIT as "you" and had no problems. I've asked Trystan to have a look and see if he can spot the problem.

Please be patient,
Bob
