      Which database type/version are you using? Oracle
      What is your level of experience? New to PHP and phpBB
      When did your problem begin? After upgrading from 3.0.2 to 3.0.7.
      Please describe your problem. This is a test instance that's copied from our production board, separate database but identical setup. After upgrading to anything past 3.0.5 (ie 3.0.6 or 3.0.7), will get ORA-01756: quoted string not properly terminated [1756] error.

      I can bypass the error by editing phpBB3/styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html, remove the space in front of " 'height=225,resi....." in the line that says window.open(url.replace(/&/g, '&'), '_phpbbprivmsg', 'height=225,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes, width=400');.

      Then, the next error will occur whenever I try to post, w/ error ORA-01704: string literal too long [1704].

      This seems like a CLOB problem, anything larger than 4000 character isn't getting inserted on this particular page.

      Error detail see attached image.
