    Cannot open XML File

    This has happened to me once. Refreshing the page got me moving along. I thought it was just a random glitch. It hasn't happened to me ever since.

    Has not happened yet. Have you tried clearing out your files?

    Could you take a screenshot of the error for me please if it happens again? I've not heard of that error before, but I'll have a look at the server logs today and see if I can spot anything weird. :)

    I tried to attach a screencap as an attachment to this post, but once I hit the upload button in the attachment management window, it resulted in the following error message:

    Anyways, here's the screen cap of the XML error. It's really just that sentence and that's it.

    OK it looks like I've got some work to do still - I'll see if I can get this sorted now :)

    Thanks for the screencap!

    It looks like the XML problem is due to a hack called vbgooglemap, but I didn't think that was installed on this board - I'll see if I can find out more about what causes it now.

    edit : found it was installed and running as a cron, but now fixed :)
