Re: Central storage for site-wide constants: Helpful?

Mike, thanks for sharing, BTW!

Stef, Shouldn’t nested odd/even type of quotes suffice? (Can’t escape zebras these days ;)

Just read jakob’s post in your smd_query thread and must admit that, of all examples I’ve found so far, at the moment he deserves the crown: for nesting a raw php command (into txp:php tags) into an SQL query into a value of a TXP tag! Respect!!

Sorry for not showing any response on your long code example you’ve posted in my direction some miles above. At times I get rather frustrated on not understanding so many things, and smd_each is THE secret to me, at the moment it’s the “variable of all variables”. Will have to visit you over there in the other wing ;)

Probably. I’ll read up on it and play.

Yes he does. Very impressive bit of coding. Shame smd_query let him down at the end, though.

No problem. I just threw it in to show what’s possible with the new tags and some smd_ mentalness.

Hehehe, it is rather entertaining when you start to think through the possibilities of being able to iterate over anything that’s delimited; user input, custom field, keyword… There aren’t many restrictions, and being able to walk over items without having to know how many there are gives some great scope for building, I dunno, forms that can capture and process user input from HTML widgets configured in glz_custom_fields.

I’ll get the coffee on :-)

Re: Central storage for site-wide constants: Helpful?

Hi, is Stef’s PHP trick for getting an author’s email address still viable, I can’t seem to get it to work…

<txp:variable name="author_email" value='<txp:php>global $thisarticle; echo safe_field("email","txp_users","name='".$thisarticle['authorid']."'");</txp:php>' />

I also tried jmd_author instead but as that returns email addresses encoded it will not do for my needs.

Thanks,
Phil

Re: Central storage for site-wide constants: Helpful?

The basic code in the raw PHP snippet is fine. But my head spins at trying to sort out which, if any, quote marks would need to be escaped when using that php tag within another tag. Do you need to have this in a variable? If so, you could assign it inside the php tag. Something like:

<txp:php>
   global $thisarticle, $variable; 
   $variable['author_email'] = safe_field("email","txp_users","name='".$thisarticle['authorid']."'");
</txp:php>

Or you could html_entity_decode() the output from jmd_author.


Code is topiary

Nice one Jeff, I’ve used your version of the PHP and it now works as intended. Many thanks for the help.
