I recently upgraded to the latest version and have found several minor issues:

Version: 2.8.1

File: FUDForumData/include/nntp.inc

Around line 425:

if ( !strlen($msg_post->subject) ) {

The problem is that $msg_post->subject can be null which halts the script. I replaced it with:

if ( ($msg_post->subject == null) || !strlen($msg_post->subject) ) {

Around line 455:

iconv_mime_encode("Subject:", $subject,

The problem is that the iconv_mime_encode function expects a keyword, and adds the colon, resulting in double colons and mangled subject thread titles. I changed it to :

iconv_mime_encode("Subject", $subject,


I posted these to {patches}.
