  1. SQLITE has syntax like ' WHERE MATCH ( 'colname : "one two" )' //My pdo sql query $sql .= MATCH 'colname : "?" )'; $pdo->bindValue(1,$text);` But Pdo placeholders can't have quotes around them. So this does not work. I tried a million variations of the placeholder syntax "?" "" ? "" """ ? """ \" ? \" . But nothing works. Errors I get : General error: 1 near "?" | 25 column index out of range . Also for this query : MATCH ( names: ? AND categoryids: ? ) , the error is: `General error: 1 unrecognized token: ":"` Would really love some help here.. Thanks

    XML array to HTML form

    Use a DOM parser like querypath to parse the XML http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-php-querypath/

    how to count backwards in a loop

    Not tested, but in the last three lines in coded section $d should ( could ) be $fulo . for($fulo=$d;$fulo>0;$fulo--){ if($_POST['outcome'.$fulo] !==""){ $out=$_POST['outcome'.$fulo];break; }else{continue;} } $act=$_POST['activity'.$d]; $ind=$_POST['indicator'.$d]; $tar=$_POST['target'.$d]; and the else{continue;) is most probably not needed.

    Code Review and Framework woes

    Code Review and Framework woes

    Agreed. I was quite hesitant to call it a framework, hence the word structure (some code that I can reuse) . It was obviously never meant for use by anyone other than me.. Well in my defense is the complete code of the site, not the actual 'structure' . Although I admit it doesn't even have a any kind of DB class Thanks a lot for your response. I have tried symphony in the past, will give it another shot. Though through another forum I discovered that its quite easy to get rid of blade in laravel, so I might give it a shot too! Thanks again
  6. I am PHP developer developing for the past 3-4 years, but except for CI I had always kind of struggled with any type of framework.. So I ended up not using most and just rolling my own frameworkish 'structure' . That ended up as a FANTASTIC learning experience, as I really got to understand what and how a real framework does/works. My complete source of the site wowpictures.link (which was made as a learning thing) is here: https://bitbucket.org/nikhil_jain/complete-wowpictures.link-source/src . Can someone take a quick look please . and offer suggestions / improvements / completely wrong things I did ? Secondly now I am hunting for a real framework, but I just find them too restriucitve / imposing. For instance yii seems too tied up with bootstrap, laravel like blade too much. Yii also seems to have a very specific class / method naming structure, that I find a chore to remember..etc etc. So what should I do? Learn any proper framework OR try to improve my own thingy ? I am strongly leaning towards th former option, but can't find a framework that doesn't forces random stuff no me .... Thanks

    form input and shell commands

    two things. - Variables don't work inside single quoted strings - Since we are alreeady inside <?php tags the <?php echo $directory; ?> part doesn't require <?php and ?> . Also since we just want to join (concatenate) text , the echo is also not required. So Change $output = shell_exec('tar -czvf {$directory} <?php echo $directory; ?>'); to $output = shell_exec("tar -czvf {$directory}.tar.gz {$directory} " ) ;
  8. Thanks for attempting to help, but .... let me try and explain my question a bit more clearly. I am looking to learn pThreads as described here: https://gist.github.com/krakjoe/6437782 The above article talks a lot about synchronization / mutex / waiting / sharing / context and other unknown concepts.. These are the concepts and generally learning pthreads is the help I am looking for. Taking a real world example: class WebRequest extends Thread { public function run() { for_doc() ; echo 'Running Thread : ' . $this->getCurrentThreadId() ."\n"; } } Here the for_doc() is a factory function that creates a Object of type A class, but all calls to $this return null ( I know I didn't explain the issue well, ut I am just trying to give an idea about what confuses me about multithreading)
  9. Hello Where should I go If I know nothing about multi-threading and want to learn about pthreads . Googling for multithreading tutorials only shows non-PHP, language specific tutorials.. PS: I would really prefer a video lecture or tutorial

    Why am I not able to really learn any CMS?

    Thanks. I have thought of this before, but having heard several times that coming up with your own cms is a bad idea, and not knowing how to build my own CMS I didn't follow through with it. Nah, both of these change for too rapidly for my slow mind. I also had a talk with a cousin of mine, he suggested that whatever framework I choose, I should spend a LOT of time with it, so I guess I'll try spending a couple of months with yii and see how it goes..

    Why am I not able to really learn any CMS?

    Thank you! actually I struggle in the same manner with frameworks as well . Recently I tried learning zend and yii 2 Site Features: 1. Basic Search 2. Post page 3. 'browse/filter' page . Basically narrow down posts using category / date etc. Regular stuff.. Wordpress way: create post, post_type using csv row, import and use existing search, comments functionality. Core PHP way: Create database structure -> import csv implement every goddamn feature myself. be it comments to post, post_page , search functionality etc. The issue with frameworks/CMS: the trouble starts when implementing something not in the book/docs means googling too much... Say in wordpress I had to implement a form that anybody could post to, this proved tiresome. Not difficult, but trying to figure out how to implement required googling..

    Checkout as guest

    One option might be to add a boolean column - 'is_guest' ? Set default value to false and work from there..
  13. Basically everytime I try to code a site in an existing CMS I find out that I spend 99% time trying to google out how the CMS works, how a particular thing is done and less time coding. I end up not using any CMS at all and just code my site in Core php. Now I have an idea for a site that whose development I think will really be speeded up if I use an exisiting CMS, instead of trying to implement every goddamn feature myself. I feel I am doing something wrong in the way I try to learn a CMS. or maybe I am just not using the right CMS. I have tried reading books / video tutorials / online tutorials etc Can anyone relate? Any tips / suggestions to offer ? I am most familiar with wordpress btw Thanks

    Arrays and Loops

    POST variables are returned as String afaik, so they needs to be converted into integer for integer comparison So this should do the job: if ((int)$value >= 0.0 && (int)$value <= 10.0) {

    Confirmation Post with cURL

    I don't understand you, but a couple of pointers... 1. curl can return the error, if any for the current request. check it if it helps: http://php.net/manual/en/function.curl-error.php . Similarly there is curl_info 2. The values being passed to POSTFIELDS should be urlencode'ed 3. Referer doesn't seem right
