  1. Thank God you guys don't know me, you'd drive to my house and beat the .. out of me.

    I used the function mentioned above in two places, one for mobile and one for other. In the function used for mobile I used an array value, function($site_info['home']) as the input instead of the array causing the string offset.

    Sorry for the oversight and thank you for your input.

    Once again, sorry.

  2. At this stage of your development process, why do you need your own custom error handler?


    Show us how and WHERE you turn on error handling?

    1. It lets me know if something is wrong by email

    2. my_error_handler() is always on, it prints info locally and emails errors when online from error_log($message, 1, $webmaster_email); // Send email.



    As a note I went here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15361392/how-do-i-correct-this-illegal-string-offset and used var_dump($site_info) like they instructed and got this.

    for local but all that changes online is the string aka paths


    array(20) {["home"]=> string(31) "http://localhost/ab-01.0102" ["https_home"]=> string(31) "http://localhost/ab-01.0102" ["debug"]=> bool(true) ["ip_admin"]=> string(9) ""};


    And I used print_r($site_info) and got this

    Array ([home] => http://localhost/ab-01.0102 [https_home] => http://localhost/ab-01.0102 [folder] => /ab-01.0102 [debug] => 1 [ip_admin] => )


  3. Alas.....


    Is the block of code in the first section in php mode?  It is not apparent.


    And how is the block of code in the second related to the first?  We don't know What could be going on in between!


    How are "config file" (?) and "index file"(?) related?  Are they actually files?  If so what are their names?  Are they calling each other or are they included in the same file of some other name?


    You are not making this easy!


    1. Yes the block of code in the first section is inside php tags it is in the config.inc.php file

    2. The second block is in the /index.php which includes config.inc.php

    3. config.inc.php is included at the beginning of /index.php. directly.

    4. Sorry, I'm trying




    Also as a note, my error_log shows NO errors.

    I'm getting error notifications by email from this function in the config.inc.php file which is included at the top of every page

    function my_error_handler($e_number, $e_message, $e_file, $e_line, $e_vars) {
    	global $debug, $webmaster_email;
    	$user_ip = strip_tags($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
    	if($debug) {$br = '<br />';} else {$br = false;}
    	// Build the error message.
    	$message = "Coding error message \nSub Dictionary: ".htmlentities(dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), ENT_QUOTES)."";
    	$message .= "\nfile: ".htmlentities(basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']), ENT_QUOTES)."";
    	$message .= "\npath: ".htmlentities($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], ENT_QUOTES)."\n";
    	$message .= "\nAn error occurred in script '$e_file' on line $e_line: \n$br $e_message\n$br";
    	$message .= "\nFrom an ip at http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/$user_ip";
    date_default_timezone_set ('US/Eastern');
    	// Add the date and time.
    	$message .= "\nDate/Time: " . date('n-j-Y H:i:s') . "\n";
    	if ($debug) { // Show the error and if local
    	// added to show a more detailed message when get an error from google bot 140218
    	$message = $message .= "$br<pre style=\"background-color: white;\">" . print_r ($e_vars, 1) . "</pre>\n$br";
    	// Append $e_vars to the $message.
    	//	$message2 = $message .= "$br<pre style=\"background-color: white;\">" . print_r ($e_vars, 1) . "</pre>\n$br";
    		echo '<p style="background-color: white; color: black;">' . $message . '</p>';
    	} else {
    		// Log the error:
    		error_log($message, 1, $webmaster_email); // Send email.
    		// Only print an error message if the error isn't a notice or strict.
    		if ( ($e_number != E_NOTICE) && ($e_number < 2048)) {
    			$php_db_error = '<p class="error">A system error occurred. We apologize for the inconvenience.</p>';
    	} // End of $debug IF.
    } // End of my_error_handler()
    // Use my error handler:
    if (!$local) {
    set_error_handler ('my_error_handler');
  4. // In config file
    if($local) {
    /* if it's local */
    $site_info['home'] = 'http://localhost/subfolder';
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'http://localhost/subfolder';
    $site_info['debug'] = TRUE; // its true on local
    $site_info['ip_admin'] = '**.**.**';
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'http://localhost/';
    } else {
    /* when online array values are */
    $site_info['home'] = 'http://mywebsite'; // used only on index page and left column menu
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'https://www.mywebsite.com'; /* used everywhere else */
    $site_info['debug'] = FALSE; // don't debug inline
    $site_info['ip_admin'] = '**.**.**';
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'https://www.mywebsite.com';

    The error is in this line at mysite.com/index.php this page is http, that's where the error is coming from

    $site_info['https_home'] is on the index page and referrers to the $_GET file in the link below

    // In index file
    <h4 class="text-center"><?php  echo '<a href="'.$site_info['https_home'].'/ab-member/index.php?action=register">Join us!</a>'; ?></h4>
  5. The actual path is on the actual php


    <h4 class="text-center"><?php  echo '<a href="'.$site_info['https_home'].'/ab-member/index.php?action=register">Join us!</a>'; ?></h4>


    also talking about the things taken out that Guru referred to as a vague reproduction were stuff like

    if($local) {

    $site_info['local'] = TRUE; //  or true
    $site_info['home'] = 'http://localhose/subfolder';
    $site_info['debug'] = TRUE; // its true on local
    $site_info['ip_admin'] = '**.**.**';

    } else {

    $site_info['local'] = FALSE; //  or true
    $site_info['home'] = 'http://mywebsite';

    $site_info['https_home'] = 'https://www.mywebsite.com';

    $site_info['debug'] = FALSE; // its true on local
    $site_info['ip_admin'] = '**.**.**';


  6. The h4 is the line the the error reports

    I took some things out for brevity ie
    $site_info['local'] = FALSE; //  or true
    $site_info['home'] = 'http://mywebsite.com';
    $site_info['debug'] = FALSE; // its true on local
    $site_info['ip_admin'] = '**.**.**';

    $site_info['css_path'] = http://www.mywebsite.com


    and yes the if statement is in the html

    and I am using /subfolder/index.php?action=.... . Not /?action=register


    Also I use this for my css path

    if on the /index page it uses $site_info['css_path'] = http://www.mywebsite.com

    and it doesn't use https path


    if in /subfolder/member files or register in in this case it uses $site_info['css_path'] = https://www.mywebsite.com

  7. I keep getting Illegal string offset 'https_home' and I don't know why.
    I've googled but really can't understand what I'm doing wrong, to me this is so straight forward it should work.
    I have my local set up with ini_set('display_errors', 1) & error_reporting(E_ALL) but but nothing is displayed on local
    Online the error is entered in my log but the link works like a charm on the pages where it is echoed


    Local php 5.6.30
    Online php 5.5 where the issues seem to be

    if ($local) ) {
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'http://localhost/';
    } else {
    $site_info['https_home'] = 'https://www.mywebsite.com';
    /* so $site_info['https_home'] is always defined and as I understand it,
    the key is 'https_home' and the value is https://www.mywebsite.com.
    So both key and value always exist as strings */
    <h4 class="text-center"><?php echo '<a href="'.$site_info['https_home'].'/?action=register">Join us!</a>'; ?></h4>
  8. I changed the zone records on a website on the hosting service I use so I can use office 365 with my website's email. And it works like a charm when I send myself emails from regular  accounts, ie. comcast and yahoo.


    However whether using phpmailer or php's mailto on my site, the emails just disappear when I send them from the domain that I set Office 365 up on. So emails from my-website.com wont go to my email account at me@my-website.com or members@my-website.com. They'll go to an email address like outlook.com but not my office accounts.


    I can't believe I'm the first with this issue and tried to find something on the web but had no luck.


    Any ideas?






  9. NEVER MIND, I FOUND OUT WHAT THE Issue is, sigh I have two different headers for mobile and desktop.

    Sorry, I've been looking at this for hours.


    Using chrome mostly but some firefox too I can't get my css to refresh on my android phone, on my desk and laptop it works perfectly
    There's supposed a white header at the top with an orange bottom border. but the old blue keeps showing up like the old css.


    I've tried adding a version # to the css ie: href="style.css?version=1"

    as described at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2263096/css-file-is-not-refreshing-in-my-browser

    Also I put the new css in the main folder for a time but it too didn't refresh there either


    I cleared app cache and app data like described here


    And cleared the cookies, cache, and history using the standard method on chrome

    Also I reset chrome on my phone but that didn't work either
    And there are no commands in htaccess limiting css upload

    Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?


    Thanks in advance

  10. Thank God and phpfreaks, I too missed the site. It was sad when I came here a few weeks and found the site down. It's one of those things that I, and maybe we, take for granted, until it's gone.


    Thanks again for being back

  11. Thanks fastsol


    I believe jquery is needed for the bootstrap menu and for hide divs to work although they seem to work without it.

    I use an if (is_page( 'gallery' )) to include it jquery in the header and (!(is_page())) to exclude it in the footer on the gallery page.


    Thanks again

  12. I'm using a plugin to include a photo gallery on a wordpress site.


    At the bottom of the page in the footer I include

    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

    just like the samples I look at do it here http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/#examples


    The problem is that the plugin doesn't work when I include jquery.

    I posted the probelm here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/huge-it-doesnt-work-with-google-ajax-jquery


    And the reply was


    jQuery should not be called this way. You try to call jQuery in no standard way, that's why it damages or jQuery and cause problems


    jQuery should not be called this way? That's the way the samples do it

    You try to call jQuery in no standard way? It's the same in every footer


    Sooo, how do you call jquery and what is the standard way?


    Thanks in advance




  13. If a vendor has receipts for monthly hosting from the last several years and you get audited by Mr. IRS, how do you prove that you spent money with that vendor?

    In the old days I would provide a hard copy for each and every expense. Now everything is on my hosting providers website and if they wanted a hard copy I'd have to wade through and print each receipt for the last several years.

  14. Most of the time my localhost works like a champ but occasionally I  get  ... mysqli_connect() [function.mysqli-connect]: (HY000/2005): Unknown MySQL server host 'localhost' (11001)

    On phpfreaks I've searched for "Unknown MySQL server host localhost " and didn't see an answer to this problem

    Then I googled and found this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16580370/mysql-error-2005-unknown-mysql-server-host-localhost11001

    However in this file the localhost ip is commented out and windows wont let me edit the file to uncomment it like it's done in the stackflow post.


    So, one is this the likely problem ... and if it is how do I edit a file in the Windows folder?


    As a note I do go into the file as the administrator using notepad



  15. I have a single dimensional array of item characteristics called $item[ ], I get the above error when I try to define the functon parameters like this

    function bread_crumb($item['id'], $dbc)


    However when I change it to this the function works fine

    $id = $item['id'];
    function bread_crumb($id, $dbc)


    Can you use an array to define a function's parameters and if you can how do you do it?



  16. I keep getting an unknown column error and I've been staring at this for hours.

    I've checked and double checked the column names(all are lower case) even copied and pasted them from the table to the sql but I keep getting the same error.

    When I remove the referral_code = fa4cc5218dc647ee7345c84103938812 it works but I need that to update the right record.


    The sql is

    UPDATE emails SET joined = 1, id = 80 WHERE referral_code = fa4cc5218dc647ee7345c84103938812 AND mem_id = 26


    Unknown column 'fa4cc5218dc647ee7345c84103938812' in 'where clause



    Thanks in advance
