    The fix is to add the following line near the beginning of the source (.src) file in question:

    !include sbbsdefs.inc

    I also created a FAQ on the wiki for this since it does still come up from time to time:

    I also tried to get it work by adding

    !include nodedefs.inc

    but no luck.

    You probably need to changing that "node_action main" to "node_action node_main". But without knowing what error was occurring on what line, that's just a guess.
