View Full Version : [Lock Please] Integrate script with php safe includes?

03-30-2009, 01:23 PM
I am working on a design that uses Safe Dynamic Includes (http://www.tutorialtastic.co.uk/snippets/1) to navigate and display the site.

Is there any way to integrate the script into the coding I am doing for the site?

Here is a snippet of the code I'm working with if that helps.
<TITLE>The World of Earith | Familiar Elements</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico" />

I just had a thought Brandon. If I kill the template information for the script and insert the PHP codes for the script into the header of the site would that work? If so, what would I need to delete and where?

To kill the template system, in each file you would need to find and comment out / delete:

echo $template;

Then you would just echo the $article_content and $article_title variables out. These contain all of the text that is generated by the script for the most part. :)

You can also echo the other variables for the script out such as the one that controls if a user is logged in or not, or you can integrate that all some other way.

All right. Now that I know what to get rid of I'll be able to get the new layout up for users soon. They'll be happy about that.

I'm doing this in a beta subdomain, and I'm getting this error now:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/enddayne/public_html/beta/header.php on line 248

Line 248 is the end of the header.php file which tells the includes to end the header and input the default page.
</td><td class="clear" rowspan="4">&nbsp;</td><td class="content">

So do I have to change the way I have the site setup? Put the header and footer in the index file and leave the <?php if (isset($_GET['x'])) {
if (strpos($_GET['x'], "/")) {
$dir = substr(str_replace('..', '', $_GET['x']), 0, strpos($_GET['x'], "/")) . "/";
$file = substr(strrchr($_GET['x'], "/"), 1);
if (file_exists($dir.$file.".php")) {
} else {
} else {
if (file_exists(basename($_GET['x']).".php")) {
} else {
} else {
} ?>

Is that the whole code of header.php? What is the link to this so I can take a look.

I've got some sections of it sorted out, but there are still errors popping up (register2, can't display login box in sidebar).

The link is http://beta.familiarelements.info, I've been adding ?x=pageid at the end of the address to display the page I want.

New development, working on editing register2.php
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting ',' or ';' in /home/enddayne/public_html/beta/register2.php on line 19

//Protect the database
$username = preg_replace("/[^a-zA-Z0-9\\040.]/", "", $username);

$pass2 = preg_replace("/[^a-zA-Z0-9s]/", "", $pass2);
$email = preg_replace("/[^a-zA-Z0-9@._-]/", "", $email);
$tos = preg_replace("/[^a-zA-Z0-9s]/", "", $tos);

// Connect to our database

$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die ('Error connecting to mysql database!');

//Check for errors...
if($username == "" or $pass1 == "" or $pass2 == "" or $email == ""){

echo("A required form element was left blank. Please <a href='register.php'>go back</a> and fill out all the form elements and try again.")

if($tos != 'tosyes'){
echo "You did not agree to the Terms of Service. You must agree to the TOS to use this site."


if($pass1 != $pass2){
echo "Your passwords do not match. Please <a href="register.php">go back</a> and correct this issue."


//Check that username does not already exist

$query = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = '$username'";
$result = @mysql_query($query);
$num = @mysql_numrows($result);

//Loop out code
while ($i < 1) {



$luser = strtolower($luser);
$u2 = $str = strtolower($username);

if($luser == $u2){
echo "Your username has been taken. Please <a href="register.php">go back</a> and select a different username."


//All checks pass, create the user
$pass1 = md5($pass1); //MD5 the password
mysql_query("INSERT INTO users VALUES ('', '$username', '$pass1','$email','free','0')");

echo "Your account has been created with the username '.$username.'. <a href="login.php">Click here to log in to your account.</a>"

This line is incorrect:

echo("A required form element was left blank. Please <a href='register.php'>go back</a> and fill out all the form elements and try again.")

Should be:

echo "A required form element was left blank. Please <a href='register.php'>go back</a> and fill out all the form elements and try again.";

I'm just going to scrap this. Did some editing and now the site works fine. Going to have to do a new template though...
