Create a new page with my HTML code displaying, using fopen.

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I am currently editing my register.php file, which creates the user's account, but also at the same time makes a new file - their profile page.

Here is the function:

    // Create profile page.
    $handle = fopen($username.".php", 'w');
    $pageContent = "";
    function createProfile() {
        fwrite($handle, $pageContent);
    }
    createProfile();

This function works, but not when I put this code inside -> https://pastebin.com/9j3rR12v. I have tried to swap all of the " for ' but it doesn't work.
What happens is the register.php page does not load at all. It says there is an error. However, it loads the register.php page when I put:

 	// Create profile page.
    $profileContents = include (profileContents.txt);
    $handle = fopen($username.".php", 'w');
    $pageContent = "<!DOCTYPE html> <head><title>The title has changed.</title></head>";
    function createProfile() {
        fwrite($handle, $profileContents);
    }
    createProfile();

When I then make an account, it creates the file, but the content doesn't go inside.

A link to the code I would like to be displayed can be found here (compressed version): https://pastebin.com/9j3rR12v

 

If you are able to help me out, it would mean the world.
Many thanks.

When you wrap the code inside a function, it loses access to all of the variables that are outside of the function. You need to pass them into the function as function arguments.

That partially worked.

// Create profile page.
function createProfile() {
    $handle = fopen($username.".php", 'w');
    $pageContent = "<!DOCTYPE html> <head><title>The title has changed.</title></head>";
        
    fwrite($handle, $pageContent);
}
createProfile();

^ This code put the content in the page, but didn't name the file with the variable $username.

There's no variable $username inside the function.

Code inside a function only has access to the function's arguments and variables that were declared inside the function. Did you really need to wrap your code in a function?
