In testing this I discovered that I only get the error on the member profiles where the biography is empty....they haven't entered anything.....I don't get the error when I view a profile where the member has entered a biography......

Jalkson

Check your Who.english.php, and modifications.english.php.

Make sure this code appears.


$txt['bio'] = 'Biography';



I'm still really new to all this, but it could be your issue. :P

badams

When I tested earlier....I meant to state that I had added that line of code to Who.english.php and it took care of the error messages for those profiles that had entered text in the biography field.  However, I was still getting errors for those profiles that were not filled out by members.

Since I had already added

$txt['bio'] = 'Biography';

to Who.english.php....I took your suggestion and added the same code to modifications.english.php and I still get the error on those profiles where the member has not entered anything in their biography.



Jalkson

What errors are you receiving?  The same as before, but only on the empty profile bios?


Jalkson

I'm unsure of how to fix the issue.  Seeing as how the OP is still active, it might be in your best interest to either wait and see if he answers, or PM him.

Good luck, and I'll let you know if I figure it out.

badams

OK....went back to the drawing board and Alan's original code.....

In testing....I discovered that the adding the the code in Who.english.php or modifications.english.php....didn't make any difference what so ever....

Going back to the original code.....the error occurs only on those profiles where members did not fill in the biography......

I did not receive the error when a biography was present......

I feel like I'm a little bit more ahead...but back where I started....

Sounds like it needs an "If" statement somewhere....

Guys Guys Guys :)
Listen to me dear @badams @Jalkson,

Believe me I worked on it many times. I did everything.. But still got the same error.
And finally I figured out myself.
Ok I couldn't use BBC now. But it is better taking this error everyday.
Besides, I don't need BBC in biography :)

I wrote to Alan on MSN 3 or 4 weeks ago, and he never turn back to me. So I delete him, and this story end for me.

I am using this tip now, I'm not taking errors. So I am happy :) Thanks Alan for this tip anyway ;)

Yes, you're fix makes it so the error doesn't show, but technically it isn't a fix.  If all the features aren't working, it isn't fixed. :P

Try pming him on the forums,  he was active today, so I'm sure you might be able to get a hold of him.

But technically it is a fix for me, because I don't need BBC tags really :) :P

On the default theme Profile.template.php

Look for:

// Some more information.
echo '
</td>
</tr><tr>
<td><b>', $txt[96], ': </b></td>
<td><a href="', $context['member']['website']['url'], '" target="_blank">', $context['member']['website']['title'], '</a></td>
</tr>


and after that add this:


<tr><td colspan="2"><hr size="1" width="100%" class="hrcolor" /></td>
</tr><tr>
<td><b>About Me: </b></td>
<td>', parse_bbc (@$context['member']['options']['about_me']), '</td>
</tr><tr>
<td colspan="2"><hr size="1" width="100%" class="hrcolor" /></td>



The look for:

// Website details.
echo '
<tr>
<td colspan="2"><hr width="100%" size="1" class="hrcolor" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="40%"><b>', $txt[83], ': </b><div class="smalltext">', $txt[598], '</div></td>
<td><input type="text" name="websiteTitle" size="50" value="', $context['member']['website']['title'], '" /></td>
</tr><tr>
<td width="40%"><b>', $txt[84], ': </b><div class="smalltext">', $txt[599], '</div></td>
<td><input type="text" name="websiteUrl" size="50" value="', $context['member']['website']['url'], '" /></td></tr>';


And after that add:


echo '<tr>
<td><b>About Me: </b></td>
<td><textarea name="default_options[about_me]" rows="4" cols="80" class="editor">', @$context['member']['options']['about_me'], '</textarea></td>
</tr>';


It's that easy. Please make backups before you change things. ;D

Seeing as you have already packaged it as a mod :)

Yeah i just recieved a PM from the SMF customisation team informing me that a mod had been rejected until proof could be provided that permission was given from the original coder to package it as a mod.

iKorp, iiKiller usualy permission is asked for before packaging the mod and the code is not just packaged and submitted as if it is your own work.

I would have had no problem saying you could package it if you had asked me 1st.....

SMF 7 is where it gets good. That has time travel. You can go back and post before the guy who flamed you. :P

Liam.

Sorry :S
Suppose I was just too eager to get it out :P I added you as an author though, proves I wasn't trying to hog it :P Okay then, you'll probably say no now, but; "May I release this packaged mod please Alan?" Once again, sorry for not asking before.

Alan S

Lol , Its no problem.

Yes , I give my permission for IKorp to release this code as a mod.


You should link to this post when your resubmitting this mod or they will reject it again.

I solved my promlem myself..
Alan you must change this:
<td>', parse_bbc($context['member']['options']['bio']), '</td>

To that:
<td>', @$context['member']['options']['bio'], '</td>

and there is no error message again..

If you want bbccode functionality enabled and not have the error, you need to change <td>', parse_bbc($context['member']['options']['bio']), '</td> to <td>', (!empty($context['member']['options']['bio']) ? parse_bbc($context['member']['options']['bio']) : '', '</td>.

Liam.

Groundup - I submitted it a while back now, twice (once after getting permission), but it's still not been accepted.

Still - how do you do this for SMF 2.0?
