Fatal Error when Starting New Discussion

edited August 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Well I just released a new version of my site and along with it a new theme for my forums. The problem is that since I added this theme the Start new Discussion button no longer works. I reinstalled vanilla and just used the old users table and it worked for a minute and then somehow stopped again. I am getting the error

Warning: mysql_query(): 24 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in on line 140

Warning: mysql_error(): 24 is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in ...osguide/forum/library/Framework/Framework.Class.MySQL.php on line 142

A fatal, non-recoverable error has occurred
Technical information (for support personel):
Error Message
An error occurred while retrieving categories.
Affected Elements

Any ideas why this is happening? or how to fix it?

Also here is a link to the forums

Any help would be much appreciated.

    Nvm. Finally Solved it. It was not liking a custom query I added to one of my theme pages. Still don't know why it worked on one install and not the other.
