Clickable Ordering : Sorting the rows in Ascending or Descending order by any field just thru a single click.
Register Globals : Let the script behave as if register_globals is on even if it is off.
Writing numbers with decimal places, e.g., 4.5 as 4.50; it's called number_format, people.
My variables don't work when I 'write $them like this'. No, they don't. If you want variables inside strings to work like variables the strings need to be "double-quoted". Info can be found here, here, here, here, and most importantly here.
A parse error about some kind of "unexpected $end" on the very last line of the file? You're probably missing a closing brace. If you're not (have you checked?), that thread suggests some other possibilities. But a missing "}" is the most likely cause.
cron: It's for running programs at regular intervals. You can use it for your scripts, too. (Windows has a task scheduler.)
www.php.net/links. Professional associations, link catalogues, FAQs, script libraries, developers' articles, tutorials, magazines, accelerators/encoders/compilers, editors, hosting, job listings.... you still here?
If you feel that we missed out some. Just PM moderators of this forum.

Extra board markup
For posting PHP code, put it in [php]...[/php] tags:
for($i=$n+50; $i<2*$n; $i++)
echo "Just some text on line $i\n";
For HTML markup, use [html]...[/html] tags:
<form action="upl.php" method="GET"><input type="text" value="FOO!" /> and then <input type="submit" value="SUBMIT!" /></form>
For any other sort of code and stuff for which you want the spacing to remain
unchanged, use [code]...[/code] tags:
To prevent vBulletin from parsing board markup tags when you don't want it to, wrap them in [noparse] ... [/noparse] tags. This works for smilies, too :).
Please use these, as they make code much easier to read!
Do's / Don'ts
The General overview:
If it's improper to say something in a public place comprised of mixed races and ages, it's inappropriate to post it here in the forums.
Advertising on the board:
We can't allow this in any form. If someone is interested in getting exposure through the site, please contact the administrator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Footers may contain a pitch - it's a bit of a trade-off. The user is contributing to the community and in return they get exposure via their footer. Posting useless stuff and a huge ad in their footers is a complete NO.
Off topic posts:
Please use the Echo Lounge forum.
Footer size: We need to limit this to 5 lines. Obviously if there are 20 posts on a page and we allow more, we'll end up with 100 extra lines to scroll when reading messages.
They all go here. Posting them anywhere else will see them deleted, and may earn an infraction.

Hi...i'm new at this PHP thing and i'm not sure how to code things and how the code thing works....where do the codes go? i'm an administrator on a website...where am I supposed to put the codes? I'd greatly appreciate it if you can help me out..
Codes start with either <?php or <? depending upon your PHP setup. The first is the global way, the second is an alternative (called "short tags") and isn't guaranteed to be enabled on every server.
The ending tag is ?> (note no PHP) and delimits that the PHP parser should stop parsing at that point.
You can chunk code like:
// This is the first chunk
<!-- Some HTML code would be in here -->
/// This is the second chunk
and the parser would do all the code.
With PHP, each line is ended with a semicolon (. If you don't end your line with it, you get a parse error, then you have to go find where you missed it.
You can of course read all this and more in the manual (linked above).
Yes, possibly because your posts are moderated for whatever reason (content, links, whatever) and is waiting on a Mod to approve your posts. I've approved your posts. Next time, if your post doesn't show up immediately, you don't need to repost, just wait for a few hours. If it still doesn't show up, just wait longer.
We should also put out a message telling users to move to PHP5.
We had just such a notice posted throughout the second half of last year.
PHP 4 IS NO LONGER BEING SUPPORTED!!
UPGRADE PHP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
PHP has announced that PHP 4 will no longer be supported beginning January 1, 2008. They ask people to start migrating over to PHP 5 now.
Critical security releases for PHP 4.4 will be released on a case-by-case basis

The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08. Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to run on PHP 5.
PHP 4.4.9 is the FINAL version of PHP. According to some, the Suhosin project will continue to release security updates for the 4.4 branch; however, PHP 4.x is no longer supported by the PHP group. Suhosin is a 3rd-party development project. It is highly recommended you upgrade.
