  1. Does anyone know of a good article that explains the security risks of using register globals in laymen terms. I need to understand more and be able to explain it to those people who don't have coding knowledge. Thanks again for your help.Jed
  2. Yeah that is what I have been reading. Thank you.Now I have the task of adding the code to all the pages that receive variables. A problem is that this site is extensive and I did not write the code. Therefore I am not sure which pages are receiving variables nor what those variable’s names are. It is going to take a lot of combing to confidently find all those instances. Is there a catch all PHP command that retrieves any sent variables. Since I am having a hard time wording my question let me say it a different way.Is there a php command I could put at the beginning of most of my pages
  3. I am suffering a php problem the I don't quite understand and was hoping some one could clearify it for me.Many of the pages in a site receive a variable via the URL (GET method) (ie. www.url.com?variablename=variablevalue). But these pages do not contain specific code to retrieve these variables (ie. $pagevar = $_GET['variablename']. Regardless of not having this specific retrieval code all the pages worked jsut fine and now do not. Something must have changed at my hosting company. I think this has to do with the issue call globals or superglobals but I don't understand exactly. Any ide
  4. Is there a php command that would return the dimensions of an image file?This file is saved in a directory not in a database.I have looked at the function stat() which returns a lot of information on a file but does not return dimensions (which would be specific to image files).I will explain why I want this in case there is an obviously better solution that you know about:I have a page that displays a picture. In theory all of these pictures should be less then 200px wide or they mess up the layout. However, I am building this site for people who are not web/tech savvy. If they were to upl
  5. I code in php and use MySQL databases. I am taking on a client which will include moving his web site to a new host company and coding future products. Parts of his existing site are written in ASP.net and require a SQL database. Is it possible to host on a server that can do all of this: PHP, MySQL, ASP.net, & SQL?My understanding is that it is either or, not both. Microsoft servers run ASP.net/SQL and linux servers run PHP/MySQL. Let me know what you know.Jed
  6. I am looking at some code that includes a tag<csobj w="929" h="60" t="Component" csref="../URL.data/Components/copyright.html" occur="0">It seems this tag does nothing. A google seach on it implied it was part of a scripting lanuage called Cscript but couldn't find anything else out. There is not a scripting language referenced in the headers. Does any one know what this tag is?

    405 error in PHP form

    The code you posted above does send your form information to a php page called feedback.php.Without more information I don't know what that page is suppose to do with the information. What is the purpose of this script. Are you sending the comments to a database, generating an email?
  8. I am taking over maintance of a site I did not build. It was built using Frontpage which I am unfamilar with. When I create a form and submit it via the GET method, there are addditional variables that are sent. Additional variables meaning variables without values appear in the url that I did not set up in the form.Does anyone know where these are coming from. I have searched the page html code for them and did not find them?Thanks for any help.Jed

    405 error in PHP form

    Although I have run into this problem and solved it via using the get method verus the post method, I was wondering if anyone else knows how these methods are banned and/or how to change it. Are these settings that can be set in a .htaccesss file or anything like that.

    405 error in PHP form

    The post method submits your form info into the next page invisibly to the web user. The get method submits your form info to the next page using the url address. You have proabably seen many pages who's addresss looks like http://www.domain.com?variable=33&name=john&etc=otherstuffAll of the "?variable=33&name=john&etc=otherstuff" stuff on the end of those addresses are form information being passes along automatically by the get method of html forms.So to try this fix, just change the first line of your script to <form action="feedback.php" method="get">You will also h

    405 error in PHP form

    Is it a priority to sumbit your form via the post method? Do you know the difference between post and get (not tring to insult, I am just not sure of your level of php knowledge). Some php servers disable the post method for security reasons. Usually in that case the get method is still allowed. Let me know if you want more details on this option
  12. I have had the problem before myself and never found a solutions. This was the most enlighting article I found at the time. I hope I am not violating a rule by posting another page here but it does go into this subject in depth.http://www.quirksmode.org/css/100percheight.htmlJed

    Div inside Divs

    Thanks guys for all of the suggestions. You certainly lead down the correct path. My ideas of what absolute and relative position was not exactly right. I have read up on it now.I have another follow up question. The min-height feature is quite handy, in fact becoming nessecary as this site develops. I now have a section that has to streach to fit whatever its contents might be but also must have at least a minimal height. However IE doesn't recognize this min-height attribute. How do you work around that?Jed
  14. Yeah I am not sure if I can help you any further. I am certainly not as skilled in PHP as some. If you want the scipt to automatically write a file to your HD (verus the web server's drive) I think you might find that hard to impossible (I think, I don't know). I could see security issues if scripts were able to do that. You could write a cookie which is a text file but then it will go to the cookie folder. Sorry I couldn't help more, hopefully someone more skilled with join the discussion.
  15. whoops I called your variable value not your variable name. So the fourth line should be: $body=$_POST['s'];
