Summary0003804: Only have the page loads
DescriptionI had this problem with my previous version, which I'm not sure what the version was but it would only load half of the view bounces page. This time I am unable to view the messages page, which is preventing me to be able to send the message! I have seen posts in the forums but they didn't help.

i just discovered why this is, by chance

it is because the line endings in the file for some reason are Macintosh ones, and not unix. If you have commandline access to the installation on a linux machine do

dos2unix -c Mac messages.php

or alternatively load the file in an editor and save it with DOS or Unix line endings.

can you confirm that this solves the problem?

The messages.php, initialise.php, and members.php file in the admin folder all had Macintosh linebreaks. There may be others, but I haven't come across them yet. I converted them to Unix linebreaks using an EditPad Pro linbreak conversion feature (as I don't know if I can use commandline access), and yes, this resolved my problem. In checking some of the other files, I did notice that bounce.php is using Windows linkebreaks instead of Unix linebreaks. I understood that uploading in ascii as I did should convert all linebreaks so that they're appropriate for my hosting on Linux server. For some reason, using SmartFTP, this didn't work.

It would be nice if gypsydogg can confirm this solves the problem as well, because then it's another thing to tick off and we're closer to the next release.

Sorry, I downgraded to 2.9.3 which greated a different problem. I will be upgrading back to 2.9.5 today and will report my progress. I am not familiar with what a line break is for Mac. I am a web designer/pc tech, so I'm somewhat safe, could you explain what a line break is.

Anyone know what a Mac linebreak looks like?

in vi/vim on my linux machine it looks like ^M

OK, it's fixed. I had to copy and paste the code from my local install files on my web server. That is a weird problem. Consider this issue closed!
