Plugin install code help.
« on: October 28, 2007, 02:32:37 pm »

Hello,

I am making a plugin and seems to be good apart from the install function.
It works without the install function but just reports a critical error when i put the code in. Heres the code:

Code: [Select]
<?php 
function this_install() {
global 
$CONFIG;

   
$sql = ("INSERT INTO `{$CONFIG['TABLE_PREFIX']}` (`name` ,`value` )VALUES ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'), ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text')");

$result mysql_query($sql);


}
?>

any ideas?

thanks,

I have made an improvment.

I know have this:

Code: [Select]
function this_install() {

    // Install
    if ($_POST['submit']=='Submit') {

        return true;

        // Loop again
    } else {

        return 1;
    }
 $sql = ("INSERT INTO `{$CONFIG['TABLE_CONFIG']}` (`name` ,`value` )VALUES ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'), ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text')");


}


When i click install it shows the configure part of the codebase and when i click submit it just loops the same page. What is wrong with the above code?

Thanks,

ps the if else clause in that code is from the FileMove plugin.

1. Code placed after a return; will never run.
2. $sql is just a string, so does nothing anyway. You need to actually run the query using cpg_db_query($sql).

I now have this:

What should go after the $_POST? is it correct?

Code: [Select]
function this_install() {

    // Install
    if ($_POST['submit']=='Submit') {
   
 $sql = ("INSERT INTO `{$CONFIG['TABLE_CONFIG']}` (`name` ,`value` )VALUES ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'), ('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text'),('text', 'text')");

   cpg_db_query($sql);
        return true;

        // Loop again
 } else {


        return 1;
    }




}

And it just does the same, any ideas?

Thanks Nibbler

It depends on what you up to with admin button , usually it links to configuration (e.g. config.php)

Using Frantz's backup plugin as an example the link is "file=backup/backup"  where does this link to? is it backup.php where backup is the file which contains the config? am i getting the function of "function plugin_configure()" confused? Right now i am thinking that this contains the information that can be configured (ie the content that the button links to). This may be wrong and i need to then create a file called config.php to contain the config information.

What is correct?

Thanks,

file=folder/file means :
include file.php from {gallery root}/plugins/folder into index.php


and yes backup.php contains configuration settings for that plugin
You can name the file, what ever you want to

Aha! thanks,the problem is that the .php extension is not required. it can just be file="plugin/config". Thanks Sami.

On the config page how do i make it fit in with the theme?
What file must i include to solve this error on the config page?
Undefined variable: CONFIG
Call to undefined function cpg_db_query()

Thanks,

And very sorry for all the questions, im not new to php and mysql but i am new to pluginizing.

just add this to the very first of your file to define CONFIG and coppermine functions
Code: [Select]
require('include/init.inc.php');

then use pageheader function to add coppermine header to your page
Code: [Select]
pageheader($title);
$title is your page title
