  1. I am trying to understand how functions.php works.. i don't understand well, function is-administrator() . When we login,at login.php , we always have to give same email and password that's written in the script to login,otherwise it fails to login. so is that the admin? if so, why check every time? and cookies are bit confusing! are they just random values.. they are linked only to admin? if other than admin logs in, how is it going to work with login.php page? guess it wont lets in,right? and mysqli_connect.php file, I can save it outside xampp/htdoc,,? like just at any other folder at C:\test\mysqli_connect.php ?
  2. hi, Page 228, sending email, register.php, i am getting error/warning as: Warning: mail(): SMTP server response: 553 We do not relay non-local mail, sorry. ​what do I have to do? its from this line: mail($_POST['email'], 'Registration Confirmation', $body, 'From: admin@example.com'); how do I enable mail? I checked Appendix A, but its not clear. I had installed Mercury along with xampp for windows .. please help..I am almost done, if I get this I can complete last chapter 13 and then go to next book!.
  3. i have a problem with edit_entry.php example.(page number 383) after i update blog, its still saying update both title and entry. if (!empty($_POST['title']) && !empty($_POST['entry'])) { $title=mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc, trim(strip_tags($_POST['title']))); $entry=mysqli_real_escape_string($dbc, trim(strip_tags($_POST['entry']))); Looks like If statement is not working there.. I need help! Thank you.
  4. I am working on chapter 12 and was able to connect to MYSQL database successfully, (example 12.1) But examples, 12.3 and 12.4, creating table and adding data to a table, I have problems: first,After creating a table and run the program, I don't get a message saying "The table has been created!" I get a blank screen. but if I go and check with phpmyadmin, I see a table name, columns that are created . then 2nd problem is when I run adding_data.php example, again I get a blank screen .. I checked with syntax and everything, .. I am using (localhost, llama, camel, myblog) llike in the example.. Please some one help.. thank you.
