  1. I'm really confused and hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I feel this is one of those really simple things that I'm going to want to slap myself in the head over when it's resolved. It simply involves displaying a comment count in a certain area of my project. I have this method to display comments here -> <?php public function display($post_id) { $rule = "AND comment_status='approved' ORDER BY date_added DESC"; $field = "post_id"; $query = $this->_db->get(self::$_table, array($field, "=", $post_id), $rule); $this->_data = $query->all(); $this->_count = count($this->_data); $cnt = 0; foreach($this->_data as $obj) { $data = array( "id" => $obj->id, "post_id" => $obj->post_id, "commenter" => $obj->username, "comment" => $obj->body, "date" => date("F d, Y H:i:s", strtotime($obj->date_added)), "profile_pic" => $this->_user->profilePic($obj->username), ); echo HTML::comments($data, $cnt); $cnt++; } echo $this->count(); // JUST HERE FOR TEST PURPOSES } public function count() { return $this->_count; } The line that's commented for FOR TEST PURPOSES displays the comment count as expected. The issue arises when I port it to the display page. <h5 class="title"><?php echo $comment->count(); ?> Comments</h5> I get no error, but I get no number for the comment count either. I don't understand why. I've obviously done the instantiation at the top, I didn't overlook that (represented by $comment). As the count stands right now it should say '2 Comments'. The $this->count() test line works, why am I getting no result where it matters?
  2. Good evening, Phreaks. Quick question. I have this method here -> public function get($table, $where = [], $column = "*") { return $this->action("SELECT {$column}", $table, $where); } It works great as long as the call to it includes the $where array. I want both $where and $column to be optional here and $where to be an array when it's included. if I only use the $table parameter (which is the only one I want to be required). I keep getting a Could one of you fine folks please explain to me about this error and why I need the $where parameter when I want it to be optional. Thank you
  3. I'm looking for some insight on where/how to look something up. I have a Post class and it's really messy so I'm trying to clean it up. There's a method - createPost() - that takes in 8 parameters from a form, does what's needed to them to prepare them for database and creates 7 more properties, as well. For a total of 15 fields being sent to the database. I want to create a sendPost() method to handle this. In creating this method I realized that all these parameters look and feel burdensome and there's no real connection between the 2 methods other than sharing a class. I'd like to look into how to make sendPost take however many of parameters from whichever method it's called for without always having to pass the same amount. So for example if sendPost is being called with createPost than it has to handle 15 parameters, but, later, if I want to call sendPost on an editPost method, for example, it may only need to send 6 parameters back to the database meaning the other 9 would have to be redundantly passed again. I seem to recall from Python years ago there was a way to do this but I can't remember and I really don't know what to even search for to research it. Any direction or resources or advice that anyone could share would be really helpful and appreciated. Thanks
  4. I've been scrolling through some 3rd party code trying to get ideas and a deeper understanding of PHP. I came across these 2 simple methods in a class entitled 'Category' -> public function deleteCategory($id) { $query = mysqli_query($this->conn, "DELETE FROM top_categories WHERE top_cat_id=$id"); if($query) { return true; } else { return false; } } public function updateCategory($id, $category) { $query = mysqli_query($this->conn, "UPDATE top_categories SET top_cat_title='$category' WHERE top_cat_id=$id"); if($query) { return true; } else { return false; } } They're simple enough and work perfectly in the context of their functionality, but I don't understand how. Their instantiation and calls are ordinary but I don't understand how they do what they do. To me (a very untrained eye) they look like they initialize a variable ($query) and then check if it's initialized or not without actually doing anything with it. They've both been instantiated in a file that is included at the top of each page and the method calls are seemingly normal -> if(isset($_POST['edit_cat'])) { $cat_obj->updateCategory($cat_id, $_POST['cat_title']); header("Location: category.php?message=category-updated"); } if(isset($_GET['cat_id'])) { $cat_obj->deleteCategory($_GET['cat_id']); header("Location: category.php?message=deleted-successfully"); } Can someone with the time and will please explain how these 2 methods do the things they do?
  5. I have to write small segment of PHP code to print the word(s) 'Hello, World!' in uppercase letters, I have thus far wrote a small section of code that prints the output 'Hello, World!'. But, I'm completely stuck on how to make the letters all uppercase?!?? Moreover; that strtoupper goes somewhere in there right? <?php class TextFunctions { public static $string = 'Hello, World!'; static public function strtoupper() { } } echo TextFunctions::$string; ?>
  6. I have been trying to figure out a somewhat complex set of functions to handle some product price calculations and display. I was thinking that building classes may be the best solution, but I don't completely know what I am doing with that either. I was hoping someone may be able to help me figure out the best solution for all this. This site is being built within wordpress. The pages load as follows, 1. Site determines client level: If no user is logged in, it defaults to client_lvl = high, if user is logged in, client_lvl may be set to an alternate value. (high, med, low) This should be loaded just once per site visit. I created this function: function get_client_lvl () {$user_id = get_current_user_id(); global $client_lvl; If ($user_id == 0) {$client_lvl= 'high';} Else {$client_lvl=get_user_meta($user_id, wpcf-client-lvl, true); } }//End function I tried converting it to a class, but I'm not sure I am doing it correctly. class ClientLvl { public $client_lvl ='high'; private $user_id; private function __construct() { $this->user_id= get_current_user_id(); } public function get_client_lvl () //check the client level from user meta- { $this->client_lvl If ($user_id != 0) {return get_user_meta($user_id, wpcf-client-lvl, true); } The rest of the functions are based on the following arrangement. Collections have multiple products which have multiple variations. The Products have a series of multiplier values attached to them. One for each client level. It also has a multiplier type (m_type) The variants then have the item specific details such as cost of goods sold (cogs), Area, sku, and name. 2. This function is used to determine which multiplier value will be used in the calculation. Used on collection and product pages to determine which multiplier value to use for calculation based on client level f unction get_multiplier($client_lvl) { $p_high= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'p_high','single'); $p_med= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'p_med','single'); $p_low =get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'p_low','single'); if ($client_lvl == 'med') {$prices=array('high'=>$p_high,'med'=> $p_med);} elseif ($client_lvl == 'low') {$prices=array('high'=>$p_high,'low'=> $p_low);} else {$prices=array('high'=>$p_high);} }//End function I am assuminng that if I made this a class, I should just define the p_high (med, low) values and then display them with another object creation in another function? 3.These values will be used in another function to limit the number of images that a user can select for their product. $img_min= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'img_min','single'); $img_max= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'img_max','single'); 4. These are the formulas that are used to calculate the displayed price. I am not sure how to handle the image and image+commission options as they use the number of selected images to determine the price. But if no images are selected, I want it to display "This is the price/ image. One idea I thought of was to include the echo statements inside the switch options, but Im not sure how to handle the array. If the client level is High the function will only loop through once and will not have a was now price. but if it is anything else, then it will loop through twice and will have the was now echo statement. If I didnt have the special case in the image based calculations, then the was now function would work just fine. But I'm not sure where to put the conditional echo's for those functions. function calculate_price($m_type) { global $cogs; $cogs= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'cogs','single'); $img_cost=10; $prices= get_multiplier(); Foreach($prices as $multiplier) { switch ($m_type) { case 'Area': $area= get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),'area','single'); $total[]= $multiplier * $area; break; case 'Image': if(isset($img_count)) {$total[]= $multiplier * $cogs * $img_count;} else {$total[]= $multiplier * $cogs ;} // Displayed as $price/ Image using $img_count break; case 'Commission': $total[]= $multiplier + $cogs; break; case 'Flat': $total[]= $multiplier; break; case 'Commission+Image': if(isset($img_count)) {$total[]= $multiplier + ($img_cost*$img_count);} else {$total[]= $multiplier; } //Display "Price: ".$multiplier. "+".$img_cost ." /image" break; case 'Price': $total[]= $multiplier * $cogs; break; }}} 5. Function that displays the price result from the previous function. Does not currently account for the image or image+commission statements. I need to create a similar function that finds the lowest calculated price of a particular product group to display on the archive page for products. function was_now($client_lvl,$m_type) { $total=calculate_price($m_type); $p1=number_format($total[0],2,'.',','); If ($client_lvl == "high") { echo "is \${$p1}"; } else { $p2=number_format($total[1],2,'.',','); echo "WAS: \${$p1}<br/>"; echo "NOW: \${$p2}"; }} 6.This is the subloop of the product page that displays the variants for that product. Not fully coded yet. (This code is currently displayed in the template file itself opposed to a function. function uc_list_product($ID,$m_type) { get_page_children($ID); echo "<table> "; while ( have_posts() ) { the_post(); ?> <tr><?php if($m_type=='Image'){ $display= 'Price '. was_now($client_lvl,$m_type); //if images are selected display price*img count } elseif($m_type=='Commission+Image'){ $display= 'Price '. was_now($client_lvl,$m_type);} //display multiplier, img cost, img count else {$display= 'Price '. was_now($client_lvl,$m_type);} echo "<td>". the_title()."</td><td>Price ".$display ."</td><td><a href='#'>Select Product</a></td></tr>" ; } echo "</table>"; wp_reset_query(); } This will probably be doable with classes, but I I'm not entirely sure how to go about that. I hope someone can help me figure this out.
  7. Hi. I haven't done a lot of OOP. Hardly any really. I've had a go at writing a very small class that outputs a greeting depending on what time of day it is. What do the OOP experts here make of it? What do you like, what do you hate? Is there anything I could do to make it more useful? Here is the code; class Greeting { // the __construct didn't do what I originally wanted. Denfine the hour outside the method (I don't know why this is a good/bad idea) /* public function __construct() { $hour_of_day = date('G'); } */ public function callGreetingPhrase() { return $this->getGreetingPhrase(); } // the setter doesn't seem to have a purpose here. I tried using it so that I could pass in a value of my choosing (for testing purposes) can't get it to work though /* public function setGreetingPhrase($value) { $this->hour_of_day = $value; } */ private function getGreetingPhrase() { $hour_of_day = date('G'); if($hour_of_day < 12 ) { // if it's before 12pm $greeting_phrase = "good morning"; } elseif($hour_of_day >= 12 && $hour_of_day < 18 ) { // if it's after 12pm but before 6pm $greeting_phrase = "good afternoon"; } else { // what is left over - after 6pm until midnight $greeting_phrase = "good evening"; } return $greeting_phrase; } } $greeting = new Greeting; echo $greeting->callGreetingPhrase(); It annoyed me that I could 't figure out how to use the __constructor here to store the hour. But should that have bothered me? Can someone maybe explain a bit about the setter that I tried to use setGreetingPhrase. I only put it in because I've seen other Classes with one. Could I use a setter method here for anything useful? Any feedback appreciated!
  8. So I have this CMS that I have spent the last 5 years building and rebuilding and updating blah blah. It's a fairly extensive piece work and I am now looking at converting the entire system over to OOP. I am fairly new to OOP but understand the easy basics of it. I do fight with the concept of when to make a class and when to just make a normal function. I have many functions that I built specific to how my system works and some I suppose could be grouped into categories but then many others are just plain functions that only serve one purpose and may only be a few lines long. I will be using the spl_autoload_register() to load the classes as needed which is obviously much easier than including all the function pages that are needed. So for that reason I like the idea of making classes for everything but it just seems like more than is needed. So what I am looking for is some insight as to when and how to decide if a class should be made and whether to group functions by category to limit the amount of classes OR to just leave them as normal functions. Here is a example function for creating a thumbnail. I would guess that I could make a class called Thumb and put this in it, but what exactly would be the benefit of that based on the syntax of the function AND could you show me how you would convert this to OOP to make it worth while putting it in a class? // Creates a thumbnail function createThumb($img, $type, $dest = NULL, $xy = NULL) { if($type=="admin_product") { $thumb_width = $GLOBALS['admin_thumb_width']; $thumb_height = $GLOBALS['admin_thumb_height']; } elseif($type=="custom") { $thumb_width = ($dest !== NULL) ? $xy['x'] : (int)$_GET['width']; $thumb_height = ($dest !== NULL) ? $xy['y'] : (int)$_GET['height']; } $src_size = getimagesize($img); if($src_size['mime'] === 'image/jpg') {$src = imagecreatefromjpeg($img);} elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/jpeg') {$src = imagecreatefromjpeg($img);} elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/pjpeg') {$src = imagecreatefromjpeg($img);} elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/png') {$src = imagecreatefrompng($img);} elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/gif') {$src = imagecreatefromgif($img);} $src_aspect = round(($src_size[0] / $src_size[1]), 1); $thumb_aspect = round(($thumb_width / $thumb_height), 1); if($src_aspect < $thumb_aspect)//Higher { $new_size = array($thumb_width, ($thumb_width / $src_size[0]) * $src_size[1]); $src_pos = array(0, (($new_size[1] - $thumb_height) * ($src_size[1] / $new_size[1])) / 2); } elseif($src_aspect > $thumb_aspect)//Wider { $new_size = array(($thumb_height / $src_size[1]) * $src_size[0], $thumb_height); $src_pos = array((($new_size[0] - $thumb_width) * ($src_size[0] / $new_size[0])) / 2, 0); } else//Same Shape { $new_size = array($thumb_width, $thumb_height); $src_pos = array(0, 0); } if($new_size[0] < 1){$new_size[0] = 1;} if($new_size[1] < 1){$new_size[1] = 1;} $thumb = imagecreatetruecolor($new_size[0], $new_size[1]); imagealphablending($thumb, false); imagesavealpha($thumb, true); imagecopyresampled($thumb, $src, 0, 0, 0, 0, $new_size[0], $new_size[1], $src_size[0], $src_size[1]); //$src_pos[0], $src_pos[1] 3rd and 4th of zeros position on above line if($src_size['mime'] === 'image/jpg') { if($dest !== NULL) { imagejpeg($thumb, $dest, 95); } else { header('Content-Type: image/jpeg'); imagejpeg($thumb, NULL, 95); } } elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/jpeg') { if($dest !== NULL) { imagejpeg($thumb, $dest, 95); } else { header('Content-Type: image/jpeg'); imagejpeg($thumb, NULL, 95); } } elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/pjpeg') { if($dest !== NULL) { imagejpeg($thumb, $dest, 95); } else { header('Content-Type: image/jpeg'); imagejpeg($thumb, NULL, 95); } } elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/png') { if($dest !== NULL) { imagepng($thumb, $dest); } else { header('Content-Type: image/png'); imagepng($thumb); } } elseif($src_size['mime'] === 'image/gif') { if($dest !== NULL) { imagegif($thumb, $dest); } else { header('Content-Type: image/gif'); imagegif($thumb); } } imagedestroy($src); } Your insight is appreciated.
  9. Long ago I started with a php function that generated an html select list from a mysql table. Over time, I've needed versions that did various things differently (two fields displayed between the <option> and </option> or a div displayed based on the selected value) so I've kept building new versions. Every time I build a new version I think "boy I should make a class and extend it to do things the new way" but I never have and now I must have half a dozen versions of the code. Today I sat down and started coding my class and quickly realized that I need to actually figure out what I put in the parent class and where I draw the line and create another class based on the first. Mostly I code procedural and I could really use some help thinking this through. Here's what I have in terms of permutations that I want to accomplish: Build an SQL select set a where clause set an order by select multiple columns to concatenate as labels (for example: <option citycode='$cid'>$city, $state, $country</option> ) Build html Allow list to start with value ='' (eg <option value=''>Choose a state</option> <option value='AK'>Alaska...) set a selected= value (or values for multiples) <div> s No <div> display Display of a <div> if other is selected input type=text textarea Display of a <div> for each value seected Types Select list single or multiple Radio checkboxes So, do I create a class with methods for each type of html list and a child class for the divs? A parent with the divs and children where I override the method that created the html for radio and checkboxes, something else entirely? Thanks, David
  10. Hello: Any suggestions how to use all variables of a methods inside an array to apply another method on each one? fuction fn0(){....}//end fn0 function fn1($x1,$x2,$x3,$x4){ $mAr=array($x1,$x2,$x3,$x4); foreach($mAr as $val){ $this->fn0($val); }//end foreach }//end fn1 In reality I have like $x12. Thanks.
