It's me again

I'd like to add a query to my registered/unregistered header, but I only want it to run if it's on postlist.php and showflat.php..... Is there an if statement I can include with the query in the ubbt_registered.tmpl before the echo <<<UBBTPRINT to do that??

I'm thinking this is doable, but maybe not...

Anyone know if this is possible? Basically, I want to put the category / forum / post subject in the ubbt_registered.tmpl, but only do the queries if the pages are postlist or showflat...

Does that sound doable?

I'm not clear on what you want to do. Could you provide an example, or examples, of what you want to display?

Yeah, I want the $CatName and $Title variables to display in the ubbt_registered menu bar basically....

I know I need to put a query in the template of ubbt_reg, something like this found in postlist....
Code
<br />// -------------------<br />// Grab the board info<br />   $Board_q = addslashes($Board);<br />   $query = "<br />      SELECT Bo_Title,Bo_CatName<br />      FROM   {$config['tbprefix']}Boards<br />      WHERE  Bo_Keyword = '$Board_q'<br />      $groupquery<br />   ";<br />   $sth = $dbh -> do_query($query);<br />   $rows = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth);<br />   list($Title,$CatName) = $rows;<br />   $dbh -> finish_sth($rows);<br />   if (!$Title) {<br />      $html -> not_right($ubbt_lang['BAD_GROUP'],$Cat);<br />   }<br />



So, basically, I need that query to be in the template, but only run if the page is postlist or showflat... Maybe there is a simpler way...

The point is that is that I'm building a menu and will have the Site Name : Forum Name : Post Title in the menu, where appropriate. Hope that made sense...

You should place your query code in the postlist/showflat php files and use an if statement to see if the use is registered/logged in before doing the queries:

if ($user['U_Number'] > 1) {
// do query
}


Store the results in a variable and display the variable in your ubbt_registered.tmpl file.

Dave -

I added the following code below the similar query in postlist....
Code
<br />if ($user['U_Number'] > 1) {<br />// -------------------<br />// Grab the board info   <br />$Board_q = addslashes($Board);   <br />       $query = "      <br />    SELECT<br />         Bo_Title,Bo_CatName      <br />       FROM   {$config['tbprefix']}Boards      <br />       WHERE  Bo_Keyword = '$Board_q'      <br />           $groupquery   ";   <br />           $sth = $dbh -> do_query($query);   <br />           $rows = $dbh -> fetch_array($sth);   <br />           list($TitleMenu,$CatNameMenu) = $rows;   <br />             $dbh -> finish_sth($rows);  <br />          if (!$TitleMenu) {      <br />            $html -> not_right($ubbt_lang['BAD_GROUP'],$Cat);   }<br />                        }<br />




And then added $CatNameMenu and $TitleMenu to the ubbt_registered.tmpl, but it's still not showing.... ? Did I do something wrong or misinterpret your instructions?

thanks for working with me!

Any errors? Perhaps the query isn't returning any results?

You could place this in to see:

echo "$TitleMenu,$CatNameMenu"; exit;


right after

$dbh -> finish_sth($rows);


and see if there are any results.

It's probably because the variables need to be made global or need to be pulled into the function sending the ubbt_registered template.

in the main include script set the variables at the begining of the script. Then in the send_header function add the variables to the 'global' call. Then they should be available in the ubbt_registerednav template.

Whoa! I tinkered with adding a couple things.... Is there any danger in adding some more variables to this? Like anything I should know?

Dave - or anyone - another question -


Do you know how I can add the "post" link from postlist to the global variables.... I added $newpoststart and $newpoststop to the send header function, but it's not working... I did get the reply link to do this from showflat in the nav menu though...so it's gotta be possible..

Okay, so in postlist, here's where the whole newpoststart and newpoststop stuff are defined....

Code
 // --------------------------------------------------------------------- <br />// We need to check and see if they have write privileges for this forum <br />   $gsize = sizeof($Grouparray); <br />   for ($i=0; $i <$gsize; $i++) { <br />      if (strstr($CanWrite,"-$Grouparray[$i]-") ) { <br />         $makepost = "yes"; <br />         break; <br />      } <br />   } <br />   if ($makepost == "yes") { <br />      $newpoststart = "<a href=\"{$config['phpurl']}/newpost.php..;sb=$sb&amp;o=$o\">"; <br />      $postoption = "newpost.gif"; <br />      $newpoststop = "</a>"; <br />   } <br />   else { <br />      $postoption = "greynewpost.gif"; <br />   } 


Does anyone know what all I need to put in the global header call to get that bit to work? The goal again, is to make a link that shows in the header for posting...

Just in case it's not clear what I'm doing, if you can, check out my test board:

test board

Guest users will still see what I'm trying to do... When you click a forum, the ideal thing is that that post link will work, just like if you go into a thread the reply link does...

Does anyone, anyone at all know how to do this?

All I want to do is have the post link, from postlist.php work from the header in ubb_registered/ubb_unregistered.tmpl's.
