Error! Not all required fields were completed or were too short in length


I installed the latest forum into the latest version of GL. It installed seamlessly. Except now I am trying to post a test message and keep getting the message:

Error! Not all required fields were completed or were too short in length

I changed all the settings for post limits to 5 characters, double checked the tables fields were sized right, double checked the access control list that it allows admin to post, all to no avail.

I'm using the template "Contemporary" which so far has not been a problem.

Is there a way I can debug the error, a switch I can throw to give me more details on where and why exactly the error is occurring?

Or even better --- does someone know why this might be happening?

Thanks in advance!

I can`t really help you technically but I prefer to have less rules. So do you think it is necessary to have the 5 letters limitation?


Definitely not necessary, I just was changing things around to make sure the message was qualifying with the settings.

It's a non-issue now, though. I experimented with converting a story to a message post, and that worked. I tested replying to the new message, and that worked. And now I can post messages.

Go figure. :kickcan:

Maybe it had something to do with the messages table being initially empty.
