"Fatal error: Call to undefined function: stripos() in /libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php on line 675"

Articles are still successfully posted,

Possible resolutions:

  • Add this to the end of /libraries/joomla/utilities/compat/php50x.php
if(!function_exists('stripos')) {
function stripos($haystack, $needle, $offset = 0) {
  return strpos(strtolower($haystack), strtolower($needle), $offset);

  • OR – Upgrade to PHP 5. PHP 4 end of life was August 8, 2008. There will not be any more PHP 4 releases, even for security. (Switching PHP versions may cause problems with some 3rd Party Plugins – be sure to test thoroughly).
  • OR – Ignore until Joomla! 1.5.8 since the Article is saved correctly. However, if you are having problems with user logins this will not be appropriate.
