View Full Version : Issues since upgrading to vb3.6.11

10-01-2008, 03:51 AM
I just jumped from 3.6.8 to 3.6.11 and now the Paypal IPN has just stopped working.

Nothing else changed, and from looking at the form data - all the correct stuff does seem to be going across fine.

Anyone else have an issue like this?

Sorry, haven't heard of that problem before. Are you accidentally blocking the PayPal postback with an .htaccess file?

Nope - and I can call the IPN manually.

Paypal deny everything, but I'm at a loss - I disable Javascript so I can catch the submit form, check it's all there and do the manual submission = fine.

But no callback - nothing in the logs either .... grrr.

Ok putting a debug trap in - it seems that if you call the file on its own (ie not via a forum submit) it picks up the do=ipn

BUT - if you submit a form to the address shop.php?do=ipn then it doesn't pick up the $do variable (as it trips on the if (!$do) bit and sets it to view categories - however I've got it mailing the $REQUEST variables to me and they are all there).

No other changes have been made apart from the upgrade - could it be the new CRSF protection thing in VB?

p.s. I just remembered - it did the same thing on the Manage Orders page. It wasn't accepting the shop.php?do=ordersearch on the form submit, I had to put in the hidden field do = ordersearch.

I guess they're related!

Ok a little bit more - the GPC['do'] is not being set if there is a form posted at the same time.

So narrows it down to :

$vbulletin->input->clean_array_gpc('r', array(
'do' => TYPE_STR,
'c' => TYPE_UINT,
'id' => TYPE_UINT,
'cur' => TYPE_UINT,

$do = $vbulletin->GPC['do'];


($do is blank at that point)

As a stop gap, changed that bottom line to:

$do = trim($_REQUEST['do']);

And everything is working now :)
