  1. Do you really have to support IE6 or is the book you're using just really old? I've not seen that structure in forever; honestly I think that exact code is one of the main reasons jQuery blew up as big as it did as quickly as it did.
  2. I still don't know what the issue was - another form on the same page worked fine. I ended up refactoring to use text links instead of a drop-down and got it working. Thanks for the help!
  3. Hi y'all. So I'm currently working a project in CodeIgniter and I can't get the frigging thing to pass data from a form. At all. My autoload.php: $autoload['helper'] = [ 'text', 'form', 'url', ]; Here's the view code: <header> <div> <?php print form_open('/location/change', ['id'=>'location']); print form_label('Location', 'locations'); print form_dropdown('locations', $locations, (!empty($_SESSION['location'])) ? $_SESSION['location'] : ''); print form_submit('change_location', 'Change'); print form_close(); ?> </div> </header> The route: $route['location/change']['post'] = 'location/change'; And the controller code: class Location extends CI_Controller{ public function change(){ $this->output->enable_profiler(true); $vars = $this->input->post(); print("<pre>".var_export($_POST, true)."</pre>"); print("<pre>".var_export($vars, true)."</pre>"); } } The output: array ( ) array ( ) WTF? This is quite literally the simplest thing to do - I just want to pass data... Any ideas why it's not working?
  4. Not to be a pedantic ass, but sometimes the data is client-created HTML content. Any CMS runs into this, and a lot of application-style sites I've worked on (including my current job) offer clients the option of customizing display text where it makes sense, and it can include lists and images and whatnot.
  5. How do you expect it to print anything when there is no code to output anything? No echo, no return, no nothing. Also, there is no additional code. It's the same code twice. I'll add to benanamen's request and ask that you post the actual code along with the actual problem.
  6. Sorry, folks. Had a typo that apparently I'd reverted without catching it. Fixed now, I think.
  7. OK - starting to hate Laravel. I've cloned my repo into a fresh directory, nuked all the existing containers, images, bridges, volumes, etc. and run a fresh docker-compose up. Everything's fine until I get to the migration and seeding for a specific table. Remember, this is the exact set of files I've been developing with, only in a different folder. Now, the controller says save does not exist. Everything else works - I can run the migration and seed just fine on the other three tables/controllers/models, just no this one. Here's the controller: <?php namespace App\Http\Controllers; use Illuminate\Http\Request; use App\Issue as IssueModel; class Issue extends Controller { } Again, this system works perfectly in the other directory, but I need to be able to move it - the reviewers should be able to clone the repo, run docker-compose up and have a functional system. What the actual f**k am I missing? Steps I've run, in order: composer install sudo mv .env.example .env sed -i -e 's/DB_USERNAME=root/DB_USERNAME=laravel/g' .env sed -i -e 's/DB_PASSWORD=/DB_PASSWORD=laravel/g' .env sed -i -e 's/DB_HOST=' .env sed -i -e 's/DB_PORT=3306/# DB_PORT=3306/g' .env php artisan key:generate php artisan migrate:refresh --seed
  8. Both work from the browser - crap. I forgot about the /api prefix... Let me do some testing. And it appears as though that was it - I'm gonna update my routes/web.php to match the api.php and see how we do. Thank you!
  9. namespace Tests\Unit; use Tests\TestCase; class APITest extends TestCase { protected $db; const DB_URL = "https://sample.testing.edu/db.json"; public function setUp(): void { parent::setUp(); $this->db = json_decode(file_get_contents(self::DB_URL)); } /** * The endpoint under test should return JSON of an array of objects containing users ids * and their total time * [ * {'user_id': <int>, 'seconds_logged': <int>}, * ... other users ... * ] * * @test */ public function it_should_provide_sum_of_all_users_time() { $user = $this->db->users[array_rand($this->db->users)]; $totalSecondsLogged = array_reduce($this->db->timelogs, function ($c, $i) use ($user) { return $c + ($i->user_id == $user->id ? $i->seconds_logged : 0); }, 0); $response = $this->json('GET', '/user-timelogs'); $response->assertJsonFragment([ 'user_id' => $user->id, 'seconds_logged' => $totalSecondsLogged, ]); } } There's more to the file, obviously, but this is the test that's bombing right now. Also, the $this->db stub file contains the same data I'm working with, so there's no issue there, and I think I've rebuilt my composer autoload file like nine or nineteen times, so I'm flat-out stumped. And tired. Mostly tired, but a good portion of that is due to the stumped, so...
  10. I should probably mention that I've been introduced to Laravel but don't code it regularly (I'm much better at SPL than frameworks, which seemed like a good idea until this job hunt), so I'm hoping it's something super simple that I overlooked.
  11. Hi y'all. First off, posting this here to hopefully avoid the noise that's happening in the Applications sub-forums, so mods please feel free to move if it's too inappropriate here. Anyway, I'm currently doing a skills assessment for a potential new job in Laravel - if I wasn't using Laravel I would've been done hours ago, but one of the requirements is Laravel. Honestly, for the most part I dig it - it's pretty simple, despite it's reliance on magic. Anyway, I've written a couple API routes and when I visit them in the browser everything works exactly as expected and desired. However, when I run the pre-built test file, I get a Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Exception\NotFoundHttpException for /var/www/html/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Routing/RouteCollection.php. The route as defined in api.php: use App\Http\Controllers\User; /** * I tried using a Resource Collection here - there's obviously something about those * that I'm missing, because it actively refused to do anything worthwhile. I'd pass in * UserModel::with('timelogs')->get() like I use in \App\Http\Controllers\User::getTotalSeconds(), * and it didn't care. Just printed out absolute garbage, no matter what I fed to it. */ Route::get('/user-timelogs', function(Request $request) { $u = new User; return $u->getTotalSeconds(); }); And the controller code: namespace App\Http\Controllers; use Illuminate\Http\Request; use App\User as UserModel; class User extends Controller public function getTotalSeconds() { $users = UserModel::with('timelogs')->get(); $ret = []; foreach($users as $user){ array_push($ret, [ 'user_id' => $user->id, 'seconds_logged' => $this->calculateTime($user->timelogs) ]); }; return json_encode($ret); } private function calculateTime($logs) { $totalTime = 0; foreach($logs as $log){ $totalTime += $log->seconds_logged; } return $totalTime; } } The model file for good measure: namespace App; use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable; use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail; use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable; class User extends Authenticatable { use Notifiable; /** * The attributes that are mass assignable. * * @var array */ protected $fillable = [ 'name', 'email', 'password', 'id', ]; /** * The attributes that should be hidden for arrays. * * @var array */ protected $hidden = [ 'password', 'remember_token', ]; /** * The attributes that should be cast to native types. * * @var array */ protected $casts = [ 'email_verified_at' => 'datetime', ]; public function timelogs() { return $this->hasMany('App\Timelog'); } } Again, when I visit localhost/api/user-timelogs, the user IDs and correct total of seconds is right there. It's just in the test file that it's an issue. Anybody have any ideas?
  12. You are absolutely correct - thank you for the correction!
  13. Try reading the manual. Barand went along way toward giving you what the rest of us have been saying - you need to run the query.
  14. No. You can get the conflicts value very easily by actually executing the query you've written.
  15. I'm not saying it's not run right, I'm saying it's not run at all. You assign the SQL string to the variable $sql, then check if "0". If "0", you overwrite the value of $sql with a completely different string, which you then execute. If not "0" (will never happen), you print the word "Fail". Read out loud to yourself or someone else (preferably someone patient and understanding) each step of your code. If it helps, write it out in what's called 'psuedo-code' - prose versions of what the code is doing at each step of the process.
  16. OK. First thing I would recommend is to read the documentation. You don't mention if you're using PDO, mysqli, or another DB abstraction, but each has a different usage so it's important you read the documentation for the API you're using. Right now, you define a select query but don't actually run the query. You also have a conditional statement on what is effectively a non-existent comparison, so the logic is flawed. There are a lot of good resources out there, but they're sometimes buried under really bad resources. Ask here - someone will tell which you have. For instance, if you've quoted the full extent of your code here, I'd venture a guess that whatever source you're using to learn is not terribly good.
  17. The query is never actually run, though, so it technically doesn't return anything. It is an excellent example of SQL injection, though - or it would be if it was actually executed. Also, if("0") will - unless I'm mistaken - never be false. OP - is this for a class or did you get a project thrust upon you?
  18. Have you considered 'membership_plan_feature(s)' or 'plan_feature(s)'? It certainly seems to me like the most descriptive table name. Entitlements could apply to either member or membership plan.
  19. That's not the error, that's the file and line on which the error happened - show us the entire message, please.
  20. You can add bookmarks to PDFs. It's in the left toolbar. Basically, break up into chunks. It's not an exact description of what you're proposing, but my brain's a bit fried by many things right now and it was the only word that came to mind. In all honesty, it sounds like it's a question of preference - kinda like storing images in a database using a blob. I'm not a fan of it personally, but some people are. Neither side is really right or wrong, just convicted. Too true!
  21. It could absolutely work. For me, though, I'm not sure it'd be worth the extra overhead. After all, now you have to devise and code a way to track what page a user is on when she "closes" the book both when the user is and is not connected to the internet (the user could start reading at home, then continue in the car on a trip or something). And I know I always want bookmarks when reading technical docs, let alone highlights and whatnot. However, that's for me and my situation, which is obviously different than yours. I don't think you'll run into any major issues if you basically serialize your books into posts stored in a database, but as has been pointed out it's not really that great a boost to the security of the book itself. Could be a fun project to code, though 😁.
  22. Amazon offers an app that helps you to create an e-book from a Word document. My 70-year old dad has published and is now selling at least 2 e-books on Amazon right now using it. I can ask what exactly the name was if you don't feel like googling it yourself. If you're determined, however, I'd agree with pretty much everybody on this thread - put the files outside the webroot and serve them only after you run your account verification. If the user is determined to steal something off your website, there are so many ways to do it that no anti-theft practice is going to stop them. Sorry.
  23. On the off chance someone finds this in the future, apparently the answer is that you don't specify the auto-increment column and the call to $table->timestamps() must come last in the method. I finally dropped the $table->bigIncrement('id'); line and put the $table->timestamps(); call last in the stack, and now it works. So, you know... cool.
  24. Hi y'all. So I'm not new to frameworks in general but am new to Laravel specifically. I'm working through a thing and am running into an issue where a migration will create the specified table, but won't create the proper columns. Using the example in the documentation I get this behavior. For instance, <?php use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema; use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint; use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration; class CreateFlightsTable extends Migration { /** * Run the migrations. * * @return void */ public function up() { Schema::create('flights', function (Blueprint $table) { $table->bigIncrements('id'); $table->string('name'); $table->string('airline'); $table->timestamps(); }); } /** * Reverse the migrations. * * @return void */ public function down() { Schema::drop('flights'); } } This leaves me with a table named 'flights' that has the columns 'id', 'created_at', and 'updated_at'. Please note this code is copied and pasted from the Laravel migration documentation. Anybody have any words of wisdom on this? It's driving me nuts and I'm sure it's something simple I just don't know about.
  25. Drupal works on the idea of hooks - predefined actions that fire at certain times in the execution of the application and will run any functions or object methods that have been assigned to that hook. Think mini state-machine, kinda. See here for more information, and here for a list of native hooks. I haven't dug too much into Drupal, honestly (I looked into it as a WordPress replacement at my previous job, but decided the admin area would be too difficult for our clients to work with), but once I got the list of available hooks things got much, much easier to deal with. Like any framework or CMS, there's a lot of "magic" that happens. It's kind of a pain and a bit difficult at first because - well yeah, you're absolutely right - a lot of it isn't terribly well documented if it's documented at all. However if you don't want to build the thing from scratch you're gonna have to deal with that. As far as I know, using a framework like Laravel or Symfony isn't going to be all that different with regard to this kind of thing - they're all dialects of PHP, and each has their own idiosyncrasies. Now that having been said, if what you've described is the full extent of what you're looking to do I'd be rather surprised if there weren't plugins available in the Drupal ecosystem that can do what you want without having to code at all. Maybe some custom JS or CSS just to personalize things but the heavy lifting should be taken care of out of the box.
