How to fix the Load error In PhpBB

Post by newyork01 »

Hello everybody.

I am trying it use the authentication of PhpBB 3.2.2 to authenticate the websites users. I have added the code below to the top of a test page

define('IN_PHPBB', true);

$phpbb_root_path = '/forum/';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);

// Start session management

The problem that I am coming across is I get a PhpBB Warning:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/phpbb/template/twig/loader.php on line 176: Declaration of phpbb/template/twig/loader::findTemplate($name) should be compatible with Twig_Loader_Filesystem::findTemplate($name, $throw = true)

I am not trying to load a twig template I just want to access the PhpBB session data to check if a user is logged in or not.

When i navigate to the actual forum itself that works fine without any errors or warnings.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what the issue might be?
Thank's a lot!
