Hey,

In my attempt to port a script in modular form I have hit a snag.

1. The admin portion of the script is not within the XOOPS admin template.

2. There is a period(".") that is put between the database name (from mainfile.php) and the table names (from said moduled script). So of course the table username_xoopsdb._table_name cannot work. Where is that period from????


Cheers and thanks.

Added bonus

I notice the Period should actually be the Prefix to the table name. So I'm not setting something somewhere.

Check the script you wrote, as the period is often used to append data to a variable. Maybe there's a period in the wrong place there!

1. does your admin page have the following structure ?
require_once '../../../include/cp_header.php';

xoops_cp_header();

//lots of code

xoops_cp_footer();


2. the XOOPS db class should take care of this.
$sql "select * from ".$xoopsDB->prefix("tablename")." where ...";


hope this is what you mean...

Thanks a bunch.

Figured out the problem was the Prefix from staring at the error long enough. What got me off track is the Period in the error, but that is just a error format thing, nothing to do with the actual problem.

The problem was no Prefix was being included with the queries.

highlander gave a nice way to include it. Thank you very much.

Now I will tackle the appearing withi the Admin framework. I tried quickly but only got the XOOPS Admin part, the middle blank. Wil try some more.


Cheers.
