spawner2.php the revenge :)
« on: December 01, 2005, 12:28:07 am »

Hello, I'm not a php programmer but I'm trying to modify spawner.php to get categories in batch mode
because I've to add a lot of categories.


North America (cat)
       Cars (sub-cat)
       Design (sub-cat)
       Architecture (sub-cat)
       Food (sub-cat)
       etc. etc... 40 sub-categories

    Asia (cat)
       Cars (sub-cat)
       Design (sub-cat)
       Architecture (sub-cat)
       Food (sub-cat)
       etc. etc... 40 sub-categories

The same thing is for Europe, Hispano América, Oceania and Africa...everyone of these with the same 40 sub-categories...
So I modified spawner.php but when I try to upload a file with the category list I get this error: "There was an error while processing a database query"

Below the spawner2.php code:

Code: [Select]



if (!
GALLERY_ADMIN_MODEcpg_die(ERROR$lang_errors['access_denied'], __FILE____LINE__);

pageheader('Category spawner');

starttable('100%''Category spawner');

if (

if ($_FILES['userfile']['error']) die('Upload error ' $_FILES['userfile']['error']);

$data file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']);
$category = (int) $_POST['category'];
$description addslashes($_POST['description']);

foreach ($data as $id => $category){
$result cpg_db_query("INSERT INTO {$CONFIG['TABLE_CATEGORIES']} (`title`, `category`, `description`) VALUES ('$title', '$category', '$description')");
$status mysql_affected_rows() ? "Category '$category' added" "<font color=\"red\">Category'$category' not added</font>" ;
echo '<tr><td class="tableb" align="center">'.$status.'</td></tr>';

} else {

function get_subcat_data($parent$ident '')
     global $CONFIG$CAT_LIST;

     $result cpg_db_query("SELECT cid, name, description FROM {$CONFIG['TABLE_CATEGORIES']} WHERE parent = '$parent' AND cid != 1 ORDER BY pos");
     if (mysql_num_rows($result) > 0) {
         $rowset cpg_db_fetch_rowset($result);
         foreach ($rowset as $subcat) {
             $CAT_LIST[] = array($subcat['cid'], $ident $subcat['name']);
             get_subcat_data($subcat['cid'], $ident '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;');

$CAT_LIST = array();
     $CAT_LIST[] = array(0'* No category *');

$cats '<select name="category" class="listbox">';

     foreach($CAT_LIST as $category) {
         $cats .='<option value="' $category[0] . '"' . ($cat == $category[0] ? ' selected''') . ">" $category[1] . "</option>\n";

$cats .= '</select>';

echo <<< EOT
 <td class="tableb" align="center">

<form action="spawner2.php" METHOD="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<p>Upload a file to import<input name="userfile" type="file" size="50" /></p>
<p>Default category description: <input type="text" name="description" size="50" value="" /></p>
<br />
<p><input type="submit" value="Spawn2" /></p>




Please, Help ???

Enable debug mode, that will tell you what the problem is. I would think you'd need to change `title` to `name` and `category` to `parent`.

PS: what does this have to do with plugins ?

Thank you Nibbler :) , I've tried to change them and now it's possible to upload the file but for every new sub-cat I only obtain a blank row in the cat list... at the moment for me it's all difficult...

Scuse me, for the mistaken thread... :(
