Saved Searches Extension

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Just installed the "save searches" extension and get the following error message. I'm real new to this so am not sure the extension is causing the problem, but sure could use some help. The message is as follows:

// Saved Searches Table Structure $DatabaseTables['UserSearch'] = 'UserSearch'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['SearchID'] = 'SearchID'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Label'] = 'Label'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['UserID'] = 'UserID'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Keywords'] = 'Keywords'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Type'] = 'Type'; ?>']['SearchID'] = 'SearchID'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Label'] = 'Label'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['UserID'] = 'UserID'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Keywords'] = 'Keywords'; $DatabaseColumns['UserSearch']['Type'] = 'Type'; ?>
A fatal, non-recoverable error has occurred

  • most likely not an extension problem, but rather an ISP problem. does your vanilla work otherwise?

    i'd wait a few minutes and see if it goes away on its own.
  • Vanilla is completely down ( but I'm happy to wait it out a bit. Thanks, Ithcy.
  • I've waited this out for a while, but no longer think it's the ISP. Any other ideas from anyone?
  • i'm getting a 404 on that page.
  • Just reinstalled a fresh version in a new directory to get it up and running again. Thanks again for the help.
