    Below is my public controller...
    class EWRmedio_ControllerPublic_Media extends XenForo_ControllerPublic_Abstract
        public $perms;
        public $slugs;
        public function actionIndex()
            $mediaID = $this->_input->filterSingle('media_id', XenForo_Input::UINT);
            if (!$media = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Media')->getMediaByID($mediaID))
                return $this->responseReroute(__CLASS__, 'Media');
            $pid = '';
            if (!empty($this->slugs[1]))
                if ($playlist = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Playlists')->getPlaylistByID($this->slugs[1]))
                    $playlist = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Playlists')->getPlaylistWithMedia($playlist, $media);
                    $pid = '/'.$playlist['playlist_id'];
            $options = XenForo_Application::get('options');
            $start = max(1, $this->_input->filterSingle('page', XenForo_Input::UINT));
            $stop = $options->EWRmedio_mediacount;
            $count = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Comments')->getCommentCount($media);
            $this->canonicalizeRequestUrl(XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('media'.$pid, $media, array('page' => $start)));
            $this->canonicalizePageNumber($start, $stop, $count, 'media'.$pid, $media);
            $category = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Categories')->getCategoryByID($media['category_id']);
            $viewParams = array(
                'perms' => $this->perms,
                'start' => $start,
                'stop' => $stop,
                'playlist' => !empty($playlist) ? $playlist : false,
                'media' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Media')->updateViews($media),
                'keywords' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Media')->getKeywordLinks($media),
                'playlistList' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Playlists')->getPlaylistByUserID(),
                'count' => $count,
                'comments' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Comments')->getComments($media, $start, $stop),
                'breadCrumbs' => array_reverse($this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Lists')->getCrumbs($category)),
            return $this->responseView('EWRmedio_ViewPublic_MediaView', 'EWRmedio_MediaView', $viewParams);
        public function actionMedia()
            $options = XenForo_Application::get('options');
            $viewParams = array(
                'perms' => $this->perms,
                'recentMedia' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Lists')->getMediaList(1, $options->EWRmedio_recentcount, 'date', 'DESC'),
                'popularMedia' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Lists')->getMediaList(1, $options->EWRmedio_popularcount, 'popular'),
                'sidebar' => $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Parser')->parseSidebar(),
            return $this->responseView('EWRmedio_ViewPublic_Media', 'EWRmedio_Media', $viewParams);
        public function _preDispatch($action)
            $this->perms = $this->getModelFromCache('EWRmedio_Model_Perms')->getPermissions();
            $this->slugs = explode('/', $this->_routeMatch->getMinorSection());
    On lines 12-15, it checks to see if a media ID is supplied in the URL. If it is is supplied and matches a media it continues on... THIS WORKS FINE...

    However, if it doesn't find a matching media, it reroutes to actionMedia(). This is where the error shows up. It seems to fail on line 64...

    This means some code is accessing the 1st character of an empty string.
    This is happening in: XenForo/Model/User.php at line 798

    The source of that variable is: $this->_request->getUserParams()
    located in: XenForo/Controller.php at line 430

    Which indicates a "request" parameter name is empty. You need to check your Route Prefix class and see if any of the resolveAction*() method is being called with an empty string as the param name. That's your original source of the error.

    Thanks Shadab, as usual!

    I've been programming so much lately, but sometimes I still get lost in object oriented design...
