View Full Version : Noob at PHP

Hey guys, I don't really use PHP, but I found a couple scripts I wanted to use for my site, but I can't get them working.

The first one is a newsletter and everytime someone puts an email in, it says invalid email address. Here's the code.

<?php

function valid_email($str)
{
return ( ! preg_match("/^([a-z0-9\+_\-]+)(\.[a-z0-9\+_\-]+)*@([a-z0-9\-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,6}$/ix)", $str)) ? FALSE : TRUE;
}

function checkUnique($field, $compared)
{
$query = mysql_query("SELECT `".mysql_real_escape_string($field)."` FROM `subscribers` WHERE `".mysql_real_escape_string($field)."` = '".mysql_real_escape_string($compared)."'");
if(mysql_num_rows($query)==0)
{
return TRUE;
}
else {
return FALSE;
}
}

function random_string($type = 'alnum', $len = 8)
{
switch($type)
{
case 'alnum' :
case 'numeric' :
case 'nozero' :

switch ($type)
{
case 'alnum' : $pool = '0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ';
break;
case 'numeric' : $pool = '0123456789';
break;
case 'nozero' : $pool = '123456789';
break;
}

$str = '';
for ($i=0; $i < $len; $i++)
{
$str .= substr($pool, mt_rand(0, strlen($pool) -1), 1);
}
return $str;
break;
case 'unique' : return md5(uniqid(mt_rand()));
break;
}
}

function numeric($str)
{
return ( ! ereg("^[0-9\.]+$", $str)) ? FALSE : TRUE;
}

function alpha_numeric($str)
{
return ( ! preg_match("/^([-a-z0-9])+$/i", $str)) ? FALSE : TRUE;
}

?>

And the other one is a shoutbox that doesn't seem to post what I input.

<?php
header("Content-type: text/xml");

$host = "";
$user = "";
$pass = "";
$database = "";

$linkID = mysql_connect($host,$user,$pass) or die ("Could not connect to host.");
mysql_select_db($database,$linkID) or die ("Could not find database.");

$query = "SELECT * from shoutbox ORDER BY id DESC";
$resultID = mysql_query($query,$linkID) or die ("Data not found");

$xml_output = "<?xml version =\"1.0\"?>n";
$xml_output = "<shouts>n";

for ($x = 0; $x < mysql_num_rows($resultID); $x++){
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($resultID);
$xml_output .= "t<shout>n";
$xml_output .= "tt<name>" . $row['name'] . "</name>n";
$xml_output .= "tt<message>" . $row['message'] . "</message>n";
$xml_output .= "t</shout>n";
}
$xml_output.= "</shouts>";

echo $xml_output;
?>

I input the correct variables at the top, but when I hit the shout button, it gives me for name and message: undefined and undefined.

Any help on these problems would be appreciated, as I am flustered, since I barely know anything about PHP.

PHP variables do not come up undefined. If you are using JavaScript with that last script, then the issue is there. If not, let us know.

Ah, yes I am using javascript. I'm not sure if this would be the right forum for this, but here is the code. Sorry about it being so long.

Can you please pick out just the function or code where the errors are appearing? Also, please use the CODE and PHP tags, to make reading these a little easier.

After some work, I got the undefined error to go away. It had nothing to do with that javascript file. It's not even part of the script. But, everytime I try to shout in the shoutbox, it wont show? Is this just lag on the servers part? It was working for a while, but now we can't shout at all.
