Yup. Special mention for wet_babble here, which is the coolest way to change stuff like that.

Re: smd_prefalizer: directly edit prefs

Hiya Stef,

I’ve just found today that when I use smd_prefalizer I get an error message as I click through the pages of database entries:

Notice: Undefined index: 10 in /Users/username/Sites/sitename/textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(594) : eval()'d code on line 199

Something to do with checking for end of file?

Hmmm, seems to be something to do with the ‘type’ of one of your pref rows. Can you narrow it down to a particular ‘page’ of the results, or a possible suspect row or three? Do any of your rows show anything other than Advanced, Basic or Hidden in the type column? Can you find an entry with ‘10’ as its type and let me know what the pref name is (you may have to resort to using phpMyAdmin for this, or rss_db_admin plugin to view the table directly)?

If it turns out it’s a particular plugin or if there’s a type I’ve forgotten I’ll have to figure out how to deal with it. Bottom line is the plugin shouldn’t assume there are only 3 types — so I’ll try and handle it better in the next version — but I’d like to find out which entry is causing it. Thanks for the report.

Yes. I recently updated glz_custom_fields, and wherever this notice occurs, a glz type column entry is missing (ie no advanced, basic or hidden listed). I should have noticed this. Should I refer this to gerhard?

On a separate note, when I select View 15 per page I still see 25 entries. The 50 & 100 options work as expected. No major drama, just thought you’d like to know ;)

Aha, thanks for sleuthing this one. I’m not completely clued up on how glz_cf does its magic but I guess Gerhard uses the ‘type’ column for something else. Perhaps the type of the input widget for that particular field? If you could refer Gerhard to post #15 here, he might be able to fill me in on what he’s using the field for and I can make this plugin work better with his. Cheers!

Nuts, it’s a typo. Line 87 should read:

$limit = max(@$pageby, 15);

Thanks for noticing. I’ll fix it in the next release.

Re: smd_prefalizer: directly edit prefs

If it helps, in the meantime, I’ve checked the DB in phpMyAdmin, and all the glz events are of type 10 (whatever that means!).

Thanks. Mystifies me too, but hopefully Gerhard can shed some light on what type 10 is and whether there are any other values I need to know about.

Re: smd_prefalizer: directly edit prefs

OK, the reason why that is happening is because I’m setting all glz_custom_field prefs with type 10 so that they don’t show up in TXP’s preferences.

Is there a better way Stef to achieve the same result without making your plugin freak out?

Thanks for stopping by! In theory, setting them to type 2 should achieve the same effect since lib/constants defines these three:

define('PREF_BASIC', 0);
define('PREF_ADVANCED', 1);
define('PREF_HIDDEN', 2);

But if it’s a major hassle to change from 10 then I’ll just make my plugin accept anything above ‘2’ as ‘hidden’ for now. Can play it either way, lemme know which you prefer.

Re: smd_prefalizer: directly edit prefs

v0.20 is out. Features:

  • 3 new public side tags:
    • smd_pref_get : display one or more prefs
    • smd_pref_set : create or update a single pref
    • smd_pref_delete : remove one or more prefs
  • pageby typo fix (thanks speeke)
  • pref types > 2 now considered hidden (fixes glz_cf issue which uses type = 10)

With the new tags, you are prevented from modifying system prefs and cannot create or otherwise clobber any TXP system pref. But you can create/modify/delete your own hidden prefs or — if someone is logged in — create/modify/delete per-user prefs on their behalf.

Hope this proves useful for people who want to store transient information based on visitor interactions on your site.

Download it
