Re: Blog(including commenting) Tutorial

You're in the right direction. I can't quire remember how the blog tutorial goes but if I remember rightly there is a column for the title and one for the content? Essentially you need to add a new column to the table to store a link to the product document so you can use that on the page. I guess a...

Re: Blog(including commenting) Tutorial

Do you have the products stored in a database or as static pages?

You'd need to store the link to the product document in the database and output it to the page here instead of setting a fixed value

Re: Problem to make upload images in blogpost.php

You're almost there, there is just one slight mistake On this line [syntax=php]imagejpeg($thumb, "{$GLOBALS['path']}/avatars/{$_GET['pid']}.jpg");[/syntax] $_GET['pid'] will not be defined. That is the variable you see in the address bar on the edit page so because you're not editing anyth...

Re: Frameworks!! (?)

I've always been a little hesitant to build something in a framework, I'm not really sure why though - I always imagine doing loads of work on a project then coming up to some limitation of the framework being used and basically having to start again. Plus I never really see the benefit, it's not th...

Re: Temporary Download Script - Unlink file after download

To do it once the time was reached you'd need a scheduled task to run every hour or so to check for expired files and remove them. I'm not sure how many hosting providers provide that sort of thing though :/ You'd essentially need to do a query for all expired files [syntax=sql]SELECT stuff FROM fil...

Re: New forum software?

I say we stick with phpbb but just maybe reskin it! =) Yeah that's pretty much the current plan when I get some time, feel like I've been saying that about everything recently. One of the things I really don't like about phpbb is how hard it is to modify. The addon market is pretty good but they al...

Congrats on the house! Im in the market for a house right now but first I need to save up some more money.

Re: Private Message System CSS

Hey,

Sorry but I don't make any of the code available, the idea is that you use the videos to learn something then try and do something yourself. The code from most of the videos isn't really complete enough to actually use anyway.

Re: Images Not Showing?

Hey,

It looks like you're missing the files in the ext folder (images, stylesheets etc)

Did you upload that with the other files? It needs to be in the same folder as the index.php file.

Re: Temporary Download Script - Unlink file after download

Hey, Sorry for the delay! You could put the unlink() straight after the readfile() readfile() should block until the file has been fully read since it returns the number of bytes read so you won't remove the file before it's downloaded. So this should work [syntax=php] readfile('core/files/'. $row['...

Re: profile upload

Hey, It looks like the $extensie variable is not being defined - I can only see that used in the id statement anyway. This is also likely why you're always getting the extension error instead of the upload code being run. You probably want something like this to get the file extensions [syntax=php]$...

Hey, I don't think I'm completely understanding what you're after. If you're after a folder structure like you might get on something like Dropbox then it's surprisingly hard to do but here goes my explanation :P There are a couple of ways that I can think of; either use the actual filesystem or sto...

Re: Multiple forms to mailing list

Hey, It looks like your using a two step form but trying to use the data from both of them at the last step. $_POST doesn't work the same way as $_SESSION, it's only there for one page load unlike $_SESSION which will stay until the user leaves. You can pass the email address through to the form on ...

Re: Bug with PHP 7

Ooo someone is experimenting with PHP 7 before I even did :P It has some features that I love thought! the reason you got a blank page might have been because of the display_errors setting in the php.ini. By default this is set to false and means any error at all will just cause the result to be a b...

Re: Table Positioning

As killfrog said it's a good idea to try and use more modern techniques for this sort of thing. Saying that if you're just playing around and learning then it's a good place to start. Also I think the reason it wrapped under the menu is because the border size is not included in the width so you had...

Still pretty quiet! Sorry! My life has changed pretty massively since this place was all active, still working on that I promise. I got a full time job doing PHP stuff mostly and bought a house - so grown up! I've also got an awesome recording set up bookmarked on Amazon for when I get my desk sorted.

Re: link_tracker

The first is caused by the browsercap update - the database file it creates has not become very large requiring more memory. The latest upload of the item has the memory limit set higher to get around this. You may have to manually run the update, instructions here https://github.com/browscap/browsc...

Re: Questions and things regarding rebooting the activity he

Even just switching software might help, phpbb is pretty much the most common thing on the internet.

Also totally unrelated but I'm making the site HTTPS at the moment :)
