Hmmm...has PHP changed a lot or what?
« on: November 16, 2017, 08:40:33 PM »
I haven't been on this site in AGES.  I got out of the game for a long time, lost my domains and my web hosting and everything.  Now I'm getting back in to it, and I'm going back to what I figured out how to do a long time ago.  However, when I look at my old guide that I now have to try to follow, it doesn't seem to work! :(  I just get error 404(even worse, I used to know how to do custom error 404 pages) :( :(

I realize it's been several years, but I thought I'd post here to see if anybody has a good post or blog or something that I could use to get caught up on any changes there may have been that are interrupting my re-learning.  Turns out, coding is NOT like riding a bike.  I find I'm having to pedal backwards to go forwards; and for someone like me, that is extraordinarily frustrating.  I'm trying to help my beautiful neighbor with her self-employment ;)

Nothing in SMF has changed about this. Though your link is a 404 because the URL bbcode has quotes in it that it shouldn't.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
