When uploading banners, users have reported that the banner-edit page returns to them with an 'Error' at the top but no description inside.

Inside banner-edit.php, it seems that the variables used for error messages are not declared:

resulted in an actual error message being displayed.

It's most probably lib-swf.inc.php dealing with a non-compatible SWF banner and exiting with "Error". Future work is planned to rewrite the SWF handling functionality, but it would probably be nice to have the function fall to fail according to the application standards.

Also, it would be great if people could send over those SWF files for us to test them with the new Flash decompiler.

Matteo, thanks for the comment. That will help in finding why certain users have an error in the first place.

For this ticket, however, users are having no Error Message Description no matter what the error is – so we can not help debug them because the only clue they have is 'Error' rather than 'Error - Could not access uploaded file, probably due to safemode or open_basedir restrictions'

Probably the same issue for:
  • $strErrorUploadUnknown
  • $strErrorUploadSecurity

I'm upping priority from Minor to Major as this ticket makes it impossible to debug any banner upload issues

Haven't been able to reproduce this issue, but spoken to Arlen and he is happy with the fix. Closing ticket.
