PierreMinik
Crap I need Xcode to be installed before I can install MacPorts... Any way around that?
xentek
no
xcode is needed to get gcc on the system
PierreMinik
Right
johnpbloch
is anybody else using Otto's Simple Facebook Connect Fanbox Widget?
http_Hikari_WS
I simply can't get a comment-page-3, it always splits all comments in 2 pages, without even respecting the amount I set
rainrain
am getting "Call to a member function get_results() on a non-object" - can anyone help me out a bit ?
Utkarsh
Hikari, custom theme or default?
http_Hikari_WS
Utkarsh: my theme, but I think it has nothing that whould break it
wp_list_comments('style=ol&type=comment&callback=hksmtc_comment');
Utkarsh
not sure, have you tried switching theme?
paginated comments are worknig fine for me.
http_Hikari_WS
ok I'm gonna test kubrick :/
Utkarsh
twentyten
xentek
rainrain you are calling something like this $var->get_results() but $var is not an object ... var_dump the variable and see what it actually is and work backwards from there
Utkarsh
kubrick is old :p
http_Hikari_WS
I doubt it works with 2.9.2
Utkarsh
kubrick then
Durchfall
Is anyone from germany here?
zorzar_
Durchfall: yeah
http_Hikari_WS
the problem is that it doesn't count comments
Durchfall
zorzar_: What do you think of my new nickname?
PierreMinik
Anybody familiar with the internationalization process? I get an error when using the makepot.php file
brianrichards
johnpbloch: still kicking around?
johnpbloch
sort of
brianrichards
haha
zorzar_
Durchfall: well... kinda offtopic
johnpbloch
now I've got my own soul-crushing problem...
I really really hate Facebook...
Durchfall
zorzar_: Is my nick off topic, or is the question...?
PierreMinik
Facebook APi is a pain to get around, what you need to di, johnpbloch?
s/di/do
Durchfall
Hey, I'm also struggeling with the facebook api. Trying to upload images from wordpress to fb.
Not going so good though...
brianrichards
johnpbloch: i really hate checkboxes
johnpbloch
brianrichards: touche
Durchfall
Perhaps curl has something against http-address-uploads?
johnpbloch
;)
PierreMinik: I'm using Otto's Simple Facebook Connect fanbox widget
http_Hikari_WS
Utkarsh: ok 35 on main ugly page... well it's the same, comment-page-1 has all others and comment-page-3 is empty
brianrichards
last night i had a framework that could create any type of option you wanted, but i was afraid it would make too many db entries
rainrain
xentek: thanks but what does "not an object" - i have this almost same piece of code working properly in another place and that var is just meant to take the output and store it
johnpbloch
and the darn thing won't apply my styles!
rainrain
!!! ..... not an object "mean" !!! sorry
zorzar_
Durchfall: the question
xentek
rainrain show me? paste it here: http://p.baf.cc/
Durchfall
zorzar_: Just tell me - is my nick awesome?
zorzar_
Durchfall: yeah it is...
Durchfall
IT'S TOTALLY AWESOME!
xentek
Druchfall diarrhoea == awesome?
Durchfall
Now to the important stuff - is curl able to upload http-hosted files, or do they have to be locally stored?
xentek: Right on!
brianrichards
johnpbloch: lets say i wanted to bail on how i'm currently registering all of my defaults
where would you hook them?
rainrain
xentek: not sure if i used that right --- do you need the url ? http://p.baf.cc/3550
johnpbloch
brianrichards: I'd hook them onto a block of cement and drop it into the Potomac
;)
brianrichards
ha!
nice
Durchfall
Gee, get a room-
brianrichards
i've been cloned!
xentek
yeah, so rainrain so if you put var_dump($wpdb); right after global $wpdb; you should get some clue
but... do you already have the post_id?
nevermind
Durchfall
Anyone who want to finish my plugin and struggle with Facebook API for a while?
rainrain
xentek: yes it's null and it's supposed to be "globalized" ( which im not 100% sure on " - but for the other function ( which worked ) all i did was write global $wpdb; at the top of the function - thanks for your help - any ideas
xentek
so yeah, $wpdb is out of scope so you can't use it directly
however
what are you trying to do? see if the $post_id in question has a metakey of 'balance' whose value is greater than zero?
rainrain
why would it be out of scope --- it could be that i am calling the function via jquery ?
xentek
have you looked at this? http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_post_meta
also, what do you mean by 'via jquery'?
where does this function live?
(theme, plugin, functions.php)?
rainrain
xentek: no - but it looks like it might work or if not some other function - hadnt tahoughot ofthat - thanks
jquery ajax $.ajax({
i think get_post_meta might work for me - will try it out - was thinking querying the db was a bit mad
thanks
johnpbloch
brianrichards: gotta go. good luck with the checkboxes
brianrichards
ha, thanks
Kawauso
rainrain: good luck using $.ajax in stock wp ;)
techrush
everytime i insert an image into a post its making it a link by default...how can i just insert the image without it becoming a link ?
Durchfall
brianrichards: I got something for you..
brianrichards
yeah?
Durchfall
http://jilvero.se/hiv.php
rainrain
Kawauso: Thanks - yes it's a bit of a nightmare - all i wanted to do was call a function via a link - what's the best way
xentek
rainrain you almost NEVER have to query the db directly w/ WP
if you want to do ajax requests in WP
http://old.nabble.com/ajax-to-call-function-in-theme-td26116790.html
http://www.wphardcore.com/2010/5-tips-for-using-ajax-in-wordpress/
its actually very straight forward once you get the pattern down
zorzar_
hey, what's the difference between getting posts via query_posts() and the loop in index.php? in the index.php i get post-teasers, is there a way to get the same output like on the index page but on a complete seperate page by including wp-blog-header.php? at the moment i can only get full posts or the_excerpt which isn't exactly what's on index.php
brianrichards
Durchfall: thanks
Durchfall
np
rainrain
xentek: now am getting "Call to undefined function get_post_meta()" maybe it's again to do with $.ajax like kawauso was saying ?
what is the best way to provide a button or link on the front end that calls a function ?
FirstSgt
wtf. Why does $wpdb->update($wpdb->prefix."cmm_logindata", array('active' => 'Y'), array('id' => $_GET['lid'], 'password' => $_GET['key'])); .... turn into $wpdb->last_query : UPDATE `wp_cmm_logindata` SET `active` = 0 WHERE `id` = '113' AND `password` = '445bb366989740352a9e69bf1478315462489dea';
does anyone see anything wrong with that?
...
zorzar_
a
rainrain: what do you want to do?
rainrain
zorar_: i want a list of posts in the front end - each displayed with a link or button to the right to enable deletion ( but the delete code needs to be accompanied with some other code) - is this not commonly done?
zorar_: was thinking of having a form for each post with the submit button reloading the page and using isset ?
zorzar_
rainrain: can you show me your code please?
rainrain
would just love to know what the standard way(s) of doing something like this would be ?
zorzar_
rainrain: did you read xentek's links?
rainrain
no - i havent done it yet - i was using ajax and it was causing multiple issues
foomarks
I have a lot of grouped categories: grandparent -> parent -> child. I want to list all the parents, but not the children. How do I do this with wp_list_categories?
rainrain
zorar_ not fully read yet - i am not great on ajax and was wondering if there was a better way of doing this simple thing
zorzar_
rainrain: i wouldn't delete posts from the frontend, the backend is where most people do this ;)
rainrain
i know i'ts a bit complicated but is it not possible ?
... i mean complicated to explain why i would want to do this
zorzar_
rainrain: shure it is
rainrain: possible
rainrain
zorar_: what would be the best way
zorar_: i assume i'd have to choose between either a link or a form button - and a link would imply using ajax--- correct ?
zorzar_
rainrain: if you do a ajax request to you plugin php-file you have to be shure you load up everything wordpress related. this can be done by importing wp-blog-header.php
rainrain: well you can't POST using a link but you could use GET params with a link
rainrain
right- never used GET really - i might try that then because i'm not at all comfortable with ajax yet - only looked into it to get the funcion running off the link
alk
rainrain: have you looked at jQuery
rainrain
zorar_: gotta go here - sorry to be rude thanks for your help
zorar_: will try out the GET
alk
that's a nice way to do ajax
rainrain
thanks alk - that's what i was doing
zorzar_
rainrain: i think including/requiring wp-blog-header.php will solve your problems
goudaface
hey all. any idea how i would add a unique class to the menu item directly following the current menu item?
fris
what is rainrain trying to do
DaydreamA
hello everybody! i've got a problem with the login from new users, i've added. login via "admin" is no problem, but when i want to log on with a new user and password, it shows me the dashboad. when it want's to load news etc. it prints the login-form in these field. thats it. i can't work with other users. i'm using the new wordpress version. any hints?
goudaface
DaydreamA - did you do anything to customize your install?
DaydreamA
goudaface: i've installed nexgen-gallery and SMF2WP
and my apache-error-log is silent :-/
goudaface
DaydreamA: if you deactivate those plugins do you still get the login-forms showing?
DaydreamA: any chance you could share a screenshot too?
DaydreamA
goudaface: ok i'll try with deactivation ... just a second
doh!
:-/
shame on me
toscho
hiho
DaydreamA
goudaface: thanks. it's the SMF2WP-Plugin ...
goudaface
DaydreamA: cool. gotta hate it when a plugin screws with your dashboard.
you might try buddypress for forums?
FirstSgt
why is wpdb->update changing my values ?!
goudaface
i'm sorry, bbpress
DaydreamA
goudaface: well i think i'll have to ^^ thought SMF would work fine, and i like the idea of a "standalone"-forum.
Kawauso
FirstSgt: sanitizing?
http_Hikari_WS
which $_SERVER variable am I able to get the #anchor part of a URL?
Kawauso
http_Hikari_WS: it's not sent
http_Hikari_WS
Kawauso: sent?
toscho
http_Hikari_WS The browser doesnt tell the server about the anchor.
http_Hikari_WS
so, how can I retrieve it?
toscho
http_Hikari_WS Per Javascript.
http_Hikari_WS
ah :(
vbena
hello
leks
there a way to show posts from two categories without writing a new loop? something like /category/cat1+cat2/ ?
vbena
:hlin
has anyone played with a child theme of twentyten?
toscho
vbena: You may get better answers by just describing your problem.
Kawauso
1 hour for 700mb, the joys of DSL...
http_Hikari_WS
is there a global variable equivalent to $numpages to know how many comment multipages we have?
coldhost
can someone help me up with a weird thing
http://favorta.com/blog/
whatever post i click
it takes me to the first post
:(
alman
is there a plugin that you can put in the sidebar that will do the following. Display preview images taken from the posts and rotate them randomly. When you click the image it goes to that post -- or when you do a rollover on a text link (recent posts) it shows the image from that post?
Revolt
ive uploaded a favicon.ico to my webspace, how to i actually implement it into my page now :/
Kawauso
Revolt: if it's in root, then most browsers should pick it up automatically, but you can use the shortcut icon <meta> tag for it too
leks
<link href="/path/to/your/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" rel="icon" />
PierreMinik
So I made 2 .po and 2 mo. files for my theme and I'm using 2 languages on the front end, how do I make it load the other .po file when the WordPress language is set for only one of them?
Chien^andalou
is wordpress able to use the included jquery lib instead of the external one? (if so: how?)
Revolt
can someone tell me if the favicon works then? www.nxpaintball.co.uk think it may just be a cookie issue for me ?
should be a blackish logo with "NX"
leks
Revolt: you want /favicon.ico not /public_html/favicon.ico. also you want <html> and <head> elements.
http_Hikari_WS
ok, I set to have 5 comments on each comment page, and post has 26 comments, why do I keep having only 2 pages, 1 with 15 comments and the other with 12?
vbena
you're right :toscho, my problem is that I want to add a sidebar to a twentyten child theme I made, since it comes standard with two sidebars. But My question is...do I need to make a new function or can I just copy the register sidebar function and then just add the additional sidebar to the template or o sidebar.php
leks
http_Hikari_WS: you looking at comments+trackbacks count?
http_Hikari_WS
no trackback
toscho
vbena You can reuse the existing code, your second option.
Revolt
leks how u mean html and head elements? :S sorry im total noob
makeshift
where in the css style sheet do i edit the way my text looks when i make a post? i'd like to make the text 14px and add some padding.
vbena
oh, and then just add that code to my new functions.php file in my childtheme?
I guess this is what threw me off: (message in functions.php file): * To override twentyten_widgets_init() in a child theme, remove the action hook and add your own
* function tied to the init hook.
leks
Revolt: the basic layout of an html file is <html><head>[title and meta and link elements]</head><body>[content to show]</body></html> and you're missing that first <html><head>
makeshift
i searched for entrytext in style.php nothing came up. what in the style.php normally controls the way text looks in a post?
Revolt
ah ok
work now ? :p
toscho
vbena Oh, I see. Copy and rename twentyten_widgets_init() in your own functions.php and call add_action( 'widgets_init', 'my_new_twentyten_widgets_init' );
vbena: Dont forget remove_action( 'widgets_init', 'twentyten_widgets_init' );
leks
Revolt: look at your HTML. you have two <meta>s and a <title> before your <html><head>
Revolt
fixed but it still aint showing on mine
someone else said it workin on theres ^_^ must be cookies?
Kawauso
Revolt: restart your browser
Revolt
i just did :'(
and deleeted cookies etc
works in firefox, dont mind if it dont work for me does for everyone else, cheers guys :)
~*hugs leks*
vbena
:toscho, oh that's it? ok, cool! thx...got a little confused by that :-)
toscho
vbena Yeah, the original function looks a bit noisy and confusing.
