  1. Hello Larry, Thanks for replying so quickly. I know you are very busy. I went back through all the files and rechecked everything and then made sure that it matched up exactly to your coding. So NOW it is working but I really don't know what went wrong. I had VARCHAR256 in the password column but would that have made any difference? I had also gone to another source for some help and they continually tell me that my coding is old and is being depreciated. Also, I know my hosting company is using PHP 5.6. At this point I am not sure how PHP is handling password encryption. I have learned a tremendous amount over the years because of your books but just find it hard to keep up with the tour when things are changing all the time. Thanks again. Marie
  2. I am having the exact same problem or so it seems. So I have tried several different things and I think now I have done exactly what was suggested above. However, I am still getting the same error message - "The email address and password entered do not match those on file." My fake registrants all have the same password but I have truncated the table and started again. My website is based on the code in Chapter 18 but does not require a person to activate their account so this is the code. Thanks for your help. if ($e && $p) { // If everything's OK. // Query the database: $q = "SELECT id, username, pass FROM users WHERE email='$e' AND active = 1 "; $r = mysqli_query($db, $q) or trigger_error("Query: $q\n<br>MySQL Error: " . mysqli_error($db)); if (@mysqli_num_rows($r) == 1) { // A match was made.
  3. Sorry about the double posting above. I was hoping to delete my original post so I could correct it. The error message refers to line 137 not 37. Anyway, the original code I used came from the first edition of the eCommerce book which uses "rows". So the original code would have written <p><h2>Hello $row[1]!</p>.
  4. I have been updating a website with the scripting from this book. A piece of code I have is not working with the new php and I have reworked this several times. The following is the error message that I get in the server error log - PHP Fatal error: Can't use function return value in write context in /hermes/bosnacweb04/bosnacweb04aj/b717/nf.xxxxxxxxx/public_html/xxxxxxxx.com/Login.php on line 137 Line 37 would be the following - if (mysqli_num_rows($r) = $username) { <?php // Show the user info or the login form: if (isset($_SESSION['user_id'])) { // Show basic user options: $q = "SELECT user_id, username FROM users WHERE user_id={$_SESSION['user_id']}"; $r = mysqli_query ($db, $q); //if (mysqli_num_rows($r) > 0) { if (mysqli_num_rows($r) = $username) { //while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM)) { while ($r = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM)) { // Display the username and heading echo "<p><h2a>Hello $username!</p>"; } } Thanks
  5. I have reworked this page and code several times since posting and believe I have been able to correct that problem. I changed an area that said pass1 to password. NOW I am wondering how to format the error messages so that they are in the body of the form like they were in the eCommerce scripts OR how to format them so that they look good rather than just spreading across the top of the page. Can one use CSS in the PHP script?
  6. <p><label for="password"><strong>Password</strong></label> <?php create_form_input('password1', 'password', $reg_errors); ?></p> <?php if (isset($trimmed['password1'])) echo $trimmed['password1']; ?></p> <p class="noticeType"> Must be between 6 and 20 characters long, with at least one lowercase letter, one uppercase letter, and one number.</p>
  7. Sorry on my computer I don't seem to see my actual message, just the code. I get an "undefined index" error when I use this code on the first line - 'password1'. Thanks. Marie
  8. // Check for a password and match against the confirmed password: if (strlen($trimmed['password1']) >= 10) { if ($trimmed['password1'] == $trimmed['password2']) { $p = password_hash($trimmed['password1'], PASSWORD_DEFAULT); } else { echo '<p class="error">Your password did not match the confirmed password!</p>'; } } else { echo '<p class="error">Please enter a valid password!</p>'; }
  9. The following is code that I have used to get the username or whatever wording you desire from the database and then display it. I have used "Hello". The session is started in the config.inc.php file. The user's information is stored in the database once it has been sent there from a form that you have set up on your website. <?php $q = "SELECT id, username FROM users WHERE id={$_SESSION['user_id']}"; $r = mysqli_query($connect, $q); if (mysqli_num_rows($r) > 0) { while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_NUM)) { // Display the username and heading echo "<h2>Hello $row[1]! <br /></p> Your Notices should appear in alphabetical order below. <br /></p> Click on the notice that you wish to edit.</h2></p>"; } } ?>
  10. Okay thanks. I don't know what a cron is exactly but my question was answered. In other words I do not set up a script for this within the current structure of the website.
  11. If I wanted to automatically send an email to one of my subscribers to let them know that their subscription had expired or was about to expire, would that be part of the IPN code?
  12. I agree with the comments made above. If you are using a program like Dreamweaver you may have updated or created your css files but forgot to upload them. So it could be a problem as simple as not uploading ALL your files and not uploading them to the right place. Marie
  13. Okay I actually DID find their Canadian offices in Toronto. Apparently, eBay Canada, PayPal Canada and Kijiji are all located in the same place and have a great front entrance with their logos displayed large and loud, however, one is not allowed to enter through their front door without the secret code. I am not giving up though and will attempt to speak to someone soon. Marie
  14. I agree with what you say above. I was having trouble with the way it was set up previously. This is what I had in the top part of the page which was previously supplied by Margaux. // Check for an agreement: if (isset($_POST['agree']) && ($_POST['agree'] == TRUE)) { $agree = 'Agree'; } else { $reg_errors['agree'] = 'Please agree to the user Terms and Conditions.'; } This only worked once. So if a registrant filled in all the fields except a few of them - including the checkbox - they would get a prompt to fill in the checkbox as well as the other fields that were missed. However, IF they missed the checkbox again and maybe one of the other fields they would not be prompted again to fill out the checkbox. It would just be blank and if any of the other fields were not filled out, they would receive the prompt for those fields. So I decided to rework things slightly. This is what I previously had in the form. <label for="agree"></label> <p class="noticeType">I agree to the user Terms and Conditions. <?php create_form_input('agree', 'checkbox', $reg_errors); ?> </p> This was picking up the checkbox from the forms function file. I was thinking of changing this file to include preselected checkboxes but what if I don't want preselected checkboxes in any of my other pages? So what exactly will an ID value do for me at this point? Thanks for your help.
