Topic: A couple of integration questions =)

Hi there, smile

We're bumping into some integration problems. We tried everything we could, but no luck.

We used the following inlog-script:

define('PUN_ROOT', './forum/');
require PUN_ROOT.'include/common.php';

if($pun_user['is_guest'] == "TRUE")
    echo "<form id=\"login\" name=\"login\" name=\"qpost\" method=\"post\" action=\"forum/login.php?action=in\"  onsubmit=\"return process_form(this)\">
                    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"form_sent\" value=\"1\" />
                    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"redirect_url\" value=\"index.php\" />
                    Gebruikersnaam:<br />
                    <input type=\"text\" name=\"req_username\" size=\"16\" maxlength=\"25\" /><br /><br />
                    Wachtwoord:<br />
                    <input type=\"password\" name=\"req_password\" size=\"16\" maxlength=\"16\" wrap=\"virtual\"><br /><br />
                   <input type=\"submit\" name=\"login\" value=\"Login\" /><br /><br />
                    <a href=\"forum/register.php\">Registreer</a>
    echo "Welkom, <b>".pun_htmlspecialchars($pun_user['username'])."</b><br><a href=\"/web/forum/profile.php?id=".pun_htmlspecialchars($pun_user['id'])."\">Mijn profiel</a><br><a href=\"/web/forum/message_list.php\">Berichten</a>";

This worked normally, but together with certain scripts of Cutenews.RU we get an error. The Cutenews.RU scripts work fine without the above code. This is the error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_title() (previously declared in XXX/cms/plugins/latest_comments.php:103) in XXX/forum/include/functions.php on line 536

How can I dynamically include the 10 latest posts on the PunBB forum (just the title of the thread it has been posted in)? Is this similar to this:


and if so, can I just include that with a PHP-include (with the entire http:// of course.)?

I use the Private Message Mod. I can create a link to the Inbox, but I'm not sure how I can show the number of new messages in this link. And if that's not possible, I'd like like to show a message outside the forum that there ARE new messages (like the PunBB forum does).

Sorry for all these subjects (I didn't want to create 3 different threads). If you can help with just one it would be great, too!

Many thanks,

1. Seems like to peaces of code are creating functions with the same pretty name get_title().
You have to rename this function in one of your two scripts.
You can just do a complete "replace all" operation like get_title() => get_title_cutenews(). But be attentive not to touch get_title() calls of the other script.

This is easy if you are familiar to SQL.

can I just include that with a PHP-include

Seems like you are not familiar ))

Anyway, for 1.3 take a look at this code:

Same for 1.2 is here and below: … m.php#L109

3. This is one SQL-query too. You can take a look at "Private Message Mod" tables and construct your query the same way as it is done above.
