#1388123 Back To Badged: Barand

Posted by .josh on 27 October 2012 - 02:38 PM

Esteemed Barand left for a season;
as to why, he gave us no reason.
But now he is back,
to pick up the slack,
and make up for his unexplained treason :shrug:

He starts off with act of good will,
with offers of premium swill.
We toast and we cheer,
as we kick back some beer,
and engage in much epic trill :birthday:

It is now the wee hours of morn
much drinking and possible porn
there's midgets passed out
no stout found throughout
and hangovers sure to be born :suicide:

Celebration has passed with success
For details recalled, I digress
But it's now back to work
albeit with a smirk
lookin' forward to the next recess :intoxicated:

#1379781 About The New Forums

Posted by Philip on 21 September 2012 - 06:48 PM

All -

We have recently upgraded our forums to new software - IPB. PHP Freaks has been needing to grow and expand, which our previous software did not really allow us to do. We're excited to make the first steps of bringing in new features to our members and this conversion was definitely a giant leap in the right direction. Of course with change comes pains, but we've done our best to mitigate these. However, if you see anything wrong or have suggestions / complaints, we definitely would love your opinion to be heard.

You'll also notice with the upgraded forums a new look. We're updating our branding and will be tweaking this over the next few weeks to make the new skin a bit more bearable.

What else is in store for PHP Freaks? We're in the process of developing a brand-new main site with more features, upgraded branding (to match here) and most importantly - more content! Yup, more tutorials, articles, etc. will be coming in the next few months.

Again, thank you for your patience as we fix any bugs! :)

The PHP Freaks Team


Other notes:
If you have an iPhone, you can get a mobile app ($1.99) that allows you to get push notifications (for replies, PMs, etc.) We do not own the app, it is our software providers, however our forums will support this.

#1403476 Gludoe CMS

Posted by RobertP on 05 January 2013 - 09:16 PM

Well, this is my second time posting my project here. There have been way to many upgrades / re-factors to list. Basically it is a full functioning cms, with many features (that don't hinder the site's usability).

I would like to ask for the community to take a look, and try to break the site. If you find anything that looks odd / weird; please post as well.

#1393384 Profanity Filter

Posted by doddsey_65 on 18 November 2012 - 02:58 PM


I have just finished creating a profanity filter in PHP and would like to see if anyone can bypass it.

I have spent a few days working on the algorithm which accounts for spaces and symbols as well as words that sound like profanity eg/ replacing "er" with "a".

I should mention that this project displays a list of all the words that bypass the filter. So if you do not wish to see these words then please do not visit the page.




#1415177 Forcing Vars from Mysql

Posted by Psycho on 26 February 2013 - 07:38 PM

ok so i tried that query inplace of mine and am getting a blank page do i need to stop using the function with it?


 . . .

what i did was simply changed my query to yours, was there something else i missed or did not do?

Um yeah, I think the reason Jessica got frustrated is that you are not really reading the information provided and are instead filtering it through some preconceived ideas. I specifically stated "You don't need any of that logic" and said you could do the whole thing with your query. So, what do you do? You implement that query using the logic you already have and get unexpected results. I even provided an example of what the database result set would be - I thought that would be enough for you to understand how you could implement it. The least you could have done was to run the query through PHPMyAdmin, or whatever you are using to manage your database, and see that it works before even trying to implement it in your code.


Those of us who routinely respond to posts enjoy helping people. We don't get paid to do this. So, when someone receiving our help does not time the time and consideration to really read what is provided or complains about a simple typo in code that we provide it seems the person is not appreciative of our time and effort.


So, let me spell it out for you. This should be all you need:

$db = mysql_connect($hostname, $username, $password)
        or die('Failed to connect to database: ' . mysql_error());
$query = "SELECT IF(`hide`=1, 'none', `class_1`) AS `option`,
                 GROUP_CONCAT(`name` SEPARATOR ',') AS `names`
          FROM class
          GROUP BY `option`
          ORDER BY `option`='none', `option`, `name` AS";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Failed Getting Results: ' . mysql_error());
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
    echo "<b>{$row['option']}</b><br>{$row['names']}<br><br>\n";


However, that will output the names as a comma separated list (due to the GROUP_CONCAT in the query). In the output you want you apparently want a line break after each name. That is a trivial problem to solve which I expect YOU to solve. You can either implement that in the query by changing the string that is used to concatenate the names or you can take the comma separated string of names and implement the logic in the PHP code. I would do the latter.

#1402216 Flaw In Php's Namespace, Cannot Import An Entire Namespace,

Posted by KevinM1 on 30 December 2012 - 05:36 PM

Yes, lets just stop developing PHP and make PHP 5.5 its final version already. Why keep requesting new features?

Have you actually taken part in the development process? Or made RFCs? Because wishcasting here isn't 'developing PHP' nor is it officially requesting new features. We're not tied to Zend. That's why we're generally amused/bemused at your quest to make PHP better. Writing posts here isn't actually accomplishing any of that.

#1398273 How To Find Freelance Projects?

Posted by KevinM1 on 08 December 2012 - 10:01 PM

I'm a fan of doing local business. Online freelance gigs always struck me as a bit sketchy as there's little to no face-to-face contact. Being able to actually sit down and talk to a client is invaluable. For one, it makes the consultation process go a lot smoother. But, it also reinforces that human connection. It's easy for one side to screw the other over if they're just an email or IM entity, especially if they're in another country. Interacting with a real person is grounding.

Local businesses tend to fall into three categories:

1. They don't want a site
2. They don't currently have a site, but want one
3. They have a site, but it's shit

There's not much you can do with category 1. Category 2 is nice, but it tends to be filled with clueless clients that drag their feet and are indecisive. Worthwhile, but also frustrating. Category 3 is the honey pot - you can sweep in and save the day, thereby getting yourself both a nice payment and future business as they usually spread the word and offer glowing reviews. They also tend to know what they want, and are willing to work with you to get it done. However, since they feel letdown/burned/betrayed by their last developer, trust is an issue. Earn that trust, and they'll be in your corner forever.

How do you find local businesses to work for? Ask your friends and family if any of the places they frequent have a site. Go to your local hangout places and offer your services. Every town has at least a couple of small business owners that want more. And if you can satisfy them, more will appear.

One word of advice: in the rush to get new clients, don't oversell your abilities too much. The worst kind of developer you can be is one that over sells and under delivers. Then again, people like me make money cleaning up those kinds of messes....

#1365192 In-house CMS now GPL, looking for testers (bugs and security) and/or developers

Posted by Tarential on 29 July 2012 - 01:37 AM

Greetings PHP Freaks,

You may have noticed me stopping by here from time to time over the past few weeks. I've been reading and learning, posting and (I hope) helping. I make websites for a living, and in my spare time I have been creating a content management system to address some of the shortcomings found in other available systems. Until now I've been charging for it to earn back some of the cost of development time, but I've come to believe that it would be more beneficial to me (and certainly to anyone who wishes to use it) if I were to release it under the GPL. I potentially gain assistance in development and others get to use the software for free.

With that in mind, I have done just that. It is now available on github at:

I also have a website for the software set up (saintcms.com) and a demo site running the latest beta which I'm hoping someone might help test for me:
Username: demo
Password: demo

Here is my confirmation file for testing:

I am looking for both security and bug testing if anyone would be so kind as to provide either. In addition, I would welcome anyone who is interested in helping further the development of this CMS. It is based around a generic block system that allows customization of repeating content types and has a modified MVC architecture similar to Magento. The administrative interface is inline for user friendly editing. Feel free to have a look around and contact me with any questions (either reply here, pm me or e-mail me via the contact form on my site).

Thank you all for your time,
Preston St. Pierre

#1352298 Ultimate Battle Online: Testers needed for v2.0

Posted by deth4uall on 08 June 2012 - 08:47 PM

I am working on the v2.0 rewrite of my game and I even created a whole microframework for it so that I can quickly get it done. Right now however I am needing more testers because I am looking to get some good reliable feedback since the present players on the main server are too few to give me a wide range of feedback on it. The framework I created is at http://github.com/de...an-Moon-Engine/ if you want to check it out, released under BSD license.

#1340191 URL Shortener - lnked.me

Posted by Philip on 24 April 2012 - 07:02 PM

Hey guys -

awjudd and I finished up round one of our URL shortener and are looking for feedback / testers. Right now it is pretty basic, but that's pretty much the goal for the site: minimalistic.

The site: lnked.me

Current features:
  • Shortens URLs! :P
Upcoming features:
  • User accounts (view your previous shortened URLs)
  • API for widgets / browser extensions
  • Analytics on your URLs (how many people viewed, where are they from, etc.)

I would really appreciate any help.


#1202980 Guidelines and FAQ

Posted by .josh on 18 April 2011 - 02:42 PM

What this board is for

If you have some code you are wanting people to debug, or a website you are working on that you want people to 'beta test,' post the code/link here.

The idea of this forum is that you have finished your code, and now you wish for people to test it for weak spots, logic problems, etc.. While you can of course expect feedback from your testers, if you need more help fixing your code, use the Help forums. This forum is for testing and testing feedback ONLY.

This is NOT a "rate my script/site" forum. Please go to the critique forum for that. Try to give a good description of what your code is supposed to be doing.  We can do little more than find syntax errors if we don't know what it's supposed to be doing.

Your topic doesn't show?

All new topics are moderated, meaning that they will not show up until a staff member approves it. Read the rules for posting in this forum and follow the directions.

Some advice to be cautious

Be very careful on what kind of info you post, especially when it comes to posting links to your site.  Posts of this nature are often times aliases of "please try to hack my site and tell me if you do, and how, so I can fix it."  We cannot and will not be held liable for any kind of damage or loss that results from you posting any of your stuff here (or anywhere else on the site, for that matter).  Not everybody out there is honest. Someone out there may read your post, go to your script, find a security hole and exploit it without telling you, all the while giving you the thumbs up.

Rules Regarding "Exploit Scanners"

Use of exploit scanners can be an effective way to discover exploits on a website, so we have no intention of banning posting scanner results. But these scanners can also return bogus results.

Secondly: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

As of now, posting scanner results is only allowed under the following conditions:

1) You must share the name and how to get the scanner
2) You absolutely MUST explain every item in the result (why is this a risk, not just because the scanner says so)

As with all forum rules, ignoring these could lead to moderation action. Ignorance of these rules is not a defense.

Thank you for your cooperation.

#1424470 Question about using array_shift with OOP

Posted by trq on 12 April 2013 - 09:53 PM

A little off topic, but if you are using this code to learn OOP, don't. All those code will teach you is bad coding practices.

Even at a glance there is some glaringly obvious poor design / coding decisions being made. Public properties, global variables and static methods everywhere. Forget you ever found this code.

#1346001 Help testing my site for vulnerabilities

Posted by greens85 on 16 May 2012 - 04:57 PM

Hi All,

I am coming to the end of the development on one of my sites and would like help testing for vulnerabilities. I have ran the site through Acunetix web scanner which has helped me rid the site of some issues. However this has only tackled XSS issues as it is the free version.

Would anyone be kind enough to help me test this?

I haven't posted the url as I don't really want it in the public domain just yet however if you can help me test then I will send you the URL in a PM.

[EDIT] I have proved I am the site owner to admin via reporting my message with the link in the body of the comment.

Many thanks.


#1320909 BA - Beta Testing

Posted by Twister1004 on 24 February 2012 - 08:20 PM

I am needing testing of the website's vulnerabilities.

PLEASE NOTE: I have VERY VERY little experience to secure websites. Which is why I would like to do this.

If you find a security vulnerability, could you let me know and  also mention how to fix it as well. I will be doing research for it, but I would still like user input.

Also, this website is completely clean and only has certain data on it. Also, please feel free to use anything at your fingertips. You will not be able to crash anything of my personal property. 

Thank you very much.
Best Regards and have fun trashing my site :P

URL: http://projecta.ulmb.com
URL to required text file: http://projecta.ulmb.com/test.txt

Again I would like to thank anyone who helps me secure the site by your input!
