View Full Version : Warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in .../newreply.php on line 389

Whenever I post a reply in a thread this is what I see


It posts normally, no double post or anything but it gives me this weird error. Also when you preview a reply you know it usually shows you all the newest posts from the thread below your preview, well that whole area is fucked up too.

Anyone else?

I'm using Chrome.

That happened to me once yesterday, but only that one time. Pretty sure I was using PaleMoon (a fork of Firefox).

I can't see any issues. Let me know if this continues and I can ask one of the admins with real power to look at it.

I saw it a few times today too. Posting in that same NBA thread, on Chrome.

This is what I see below my reply preview on both Chrome and Firefox for Windows 8.

Odd. I made a change, is it any better?

I can't believe anyone still needs to be warned that only variables should be passed by reference in .../newreply.php on line 389. That's entry level stuff lads.

Looked into this. If you pass a function call in as an argument that takes it by reference you'll get this error. Although the function call may well return a variable, it must pass the argument as the function rather than it's resulting variable. Or I guess if this returned value isn't assigned to a variable, then it can't put the result anywhere.
