Cookies won't work....

Recommended Posts

Im making a big vote (as you may have noticed in my other post) after managing to get the vote updating I now can't seem to get the cookies working (heh, no doubt I'll be back onces its IP time, lol)

 

anyhoos the problem is that I am allowed to vote even if I do have the cookie. I thinks its something to do with $voteValid

 

<?php require_once('Connections/mysql.php'); ?>
<?php 
if( isset( $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS[ '$IVoted' ] ) )
       {
           // cookie exists, BAD vote!
           $voteValid = 0; 
   } else { 
  $voteValid = "1"; 
   } 
?>
<?php

function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "") 
{
 $theValue = (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? addslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

 switch ($theType) {
   case "text":
     $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
     break;    
   case "long":
   case "int":
     $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
     break;
   case "double":
     $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
     break;
   case "date":
     $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
     break;
   case "defined":
     $theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
     break;
 }
 return $theValue;
}

$editFormAction = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PHP_SELF'];
if($voteValid>0) {
if (isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['QUERY_STRING'])) {
 $editFormAction .= "?" . $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['QUERY_STRING'];
}
}
if ((isset($HTTP_POST_VARS["MM_update"])) && ($HTTP_POST_VARS["MM_update"] == "form1")) {
 
   $updateSQL = sprintf("UPDATE poll_one SET  Vote=Vote+1 WHERE lid=%s",
                      GetSQLValueString($HTTP_POST_VARS['title'], "text"),
                      GetSQLValueString($HTTP_POST_VARS[Vote], "int"),
                      GetSQLValueString($HTTP_POST_VARS['lid'], "int"));

 mysql_select_db($database_mysql, $mysql);
 $Result1 = mysql_query($updateSQL, $mysql) or die(mysql_error());

 $updateGoTo = "/results.php";
 if (isset($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['QUERY_STRING'])) {
   $updateGoTo .= (strpos($updateGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
   $updateGoTo .= $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['QUERY_STRING'];
 }
 header(sprintf("Location: %s", $updateGoTo));

}
mysql_select_db($database_mysql, $mysql);
$query_Recordset1 = "SELECT * FROM poll_one";
$Recordset1 = mysql_query($query_Recordset1, $mysql) or die(mysql_error());
$row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
$totalRows_Recordset1 = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
?>
<?php echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"iso-8859-1\"?".">"; ?>

 if($rows > 0) {
     mysql_data_seek($Recordset1, 0);
  $row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
 }
?>
       </select> </td>
   </tr>
   <tr valign="baseline"> 
     <td nowrap align="right"> </td>
     <td><input type="submit" value="Update Record"></td>
   </tr>
 </table>
 <input type="hidden" name="MM_update" value="form1">
 <input type="hidden" name="lid" value="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['lid']; ?>">
</form>
<p> </p>
 </body>
</html>
<?php
mysql_free_result($Recordset1);
?>

 

As you can see this is just the test (hence no proper names or anything) anyhoos any help at all would be appreciated, It seems everytime I take a step forward I have to rewind to nothing 4 days later before I can take the next step... lol

first of all, it's not $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS['$iVoted'], its without a dollar sign ($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS['iVoted']) unless thats what the var is called. also, i think some PHP versions would use $_COOKIES['iVoted'] or just $iVoted without anything else. im not sure if thats the problem, but i've had problems with cookies before, and i realized i had to use just the var name, without $_COOKIES or $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS. try it and see if it works.
