This has to be one of the more annoying bugs in Dolphin 6.1x / Orca 2x

If you have your forums all setup and working, and you flag a topic/post and later try to go back to the post by using "My Flags" Then clicking on one of your topics you flagged you receive the error message:

Access denied. You must have special permissions to access this area or you are not logged in.

You will know what I am talking about and how annoying this is.

There has been a simple quick fix for this posted in the Boonex Unity Blogs. I take no credit for it but thought I would share it and pass it along with a little more clarification to how to apply this to your site.

Backup your original file to your local pc before editing:
/orca/classes/Forum.php


Find:
<topic id="{$r['topic_id']}" new="$new_topic" lpt="{$r['last_post_when']}" lut="{$user_last_act}">
<uri>{$r['topic_title']}</uri>
<title>{$r['topic_title']}</title>
<desc>{$td}</desc>
<count>{$r['count_posts']}</count>
<last_u>{$lp['user']}</last_u>
<last_d>{$lp['when']}</last_d>
<first_u>{$fp['user']}</first_u>
<first_d>{$fp['when']}</first_d>
</topic>

Change to:
<topic id="{$r['topic_id']}" new="$new_topic" lpt="{$r['last_post_when']}" lut="{$user_last_act}">
<uri>{$r['topic_uri']}</uri>
<title>{$r['topic_title']}</title>
<desc>{$td}</desc>
<count>{$r['count_posts']}</count>
<last_u>{$lp['user']}</last_u>
<last_d>{$lp['when']}</last_d>
<first_u>{$fp['user']}</first_u>
<first_d>{$fp['when']}</first_d>
</topic>

Save file and re-upload over-writting the original.

*Note: To complete the changes and fully update you will have to logging to your Dolphin admin panel. Go to your Orca Admin area and compile the language file. Click the little "en" in the upper right corner.

If you omit this your changes wont update. So don't forget.

Now go back and click on a "My Flags" and a topic there and bam!! Works like it should now!!

Boonex's response is that it will be fixed in the next release. And last time I checked their own forums they hadn't even fixed it. Talk about the atypical they don't care response. They will fix it later, and fix their own site later.
