ACY Mailing Warning

If you are using an old version of ACY mailing and cannot afford upgrading, you might end up getting this error..

acymailing Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home/yourdomain.com.au/public_html/administrator/components/com_acymailing/helpers/cron.php on line 108

It is due to a php4 to php5 upgrade on your server. The Function array_merge used to accept non-array arguments in PHP4 - but now in PHP5 it does not.

An easy fix is to use the (array) typecaster...

So on line 108:

$this->detailMessages = array_merge($this->detailMessages,$bounceClass->messages);

Becomes

$this->detailMessages = array_merge((array)$this->detailMessages,(array)$bounceClass->messages);
