Not sure if this is the correct place for this, but under 6.2, ALL visitors show up in "Who is Online" with the Location of "Private". Some say things like, "Private<Forum Name>" or "Private<something that must be an internal message ID>", but everyone has "Private" in front of their location.

Why is this?? Doesn't seem useful if everyone has it... or am I missing something?

I took a look at your forum....
Who's online generally displays "Private" if it's on a page outside the threads directory.

Your URL is like this:
http://www.syngnathid.org//ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?Cat=

Note the extra slash. That might be confusing things.
Go through your config file and look for the trailing / and get rid of it. Then, when the online table updates.... it might just solve the problem.

Nope... other than altering the control panel items and creating a new style-sheet...

You might try this SQL Query

REPAIR TABLE w3t_Online


Otherwise.... I'm stumped... Rick? Brett?

The Onlne table does not show Private... it must be added in the PHP processing...

What it does.... is the extra information typically holds a forum name and post number to process and display the link of what post a person is looking at.

"Private" usually happens when it's confused and outside of the threads directory.

Not sure why it's not processing correctly... I would try fresh copies of online.php, online.tmpl and ubbt.inc.php to see if that solves the problem.

Ok... I think I have narrowed it down to a problem with the environment var "PHP_SELF" not getting populated... ever.

Beginning on line 295 in ubbt.inc.php:

if ($inputTitle == $config['title']) {
if (!${$config['cookieprefix']."w3t_language"}) {
${$config['cookieprefix']."w3t_language"} = $config['language'];
}
require ("{$config['path']}/languages/${$config['cookieprefix']."w3t_language"}/online.php");
$What = find_environmental ("PHP_SELF");
$script['0'] = "";
preg_match ("/(.*)\/(.*).php/",$What,$script);
$What = $script['2'];
if (stristr($What,"faq_")) {
$What = "faq_english";
}
if (isset($ubbt_lang[$What])) {
$inputTitle = $ubbt_lang[$What];
}
if (!$inputTitle) { $inputTitle = $ubbt_lang['all_admin']; }
}

the system always drops into the last if statement because $inputTitle is not populated.

I verified this by changing the value of 'all_admin' in my English online.php file, and all users appear with that change in the list.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Not sure if that's a bug or a PHP setting problem.

Rick?

What version of PHP are you running? You might try making a small php script with the following and put it into your ubbthreads directory and see if it prints anything out:

<?

require ("main.inc.php");
$What = find_environmental ("PHP_SELF");
echo $What;

?>

Hmm, interesting. Actually I meant the version of PHP that you are running, not .threads. PHP is only up to 4.3 right now <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

Ok, hmm. Do you know how to bring up your phpinfo page? You should be able to see there if your PHP_SELF variable is reporting anything.

I don't think so... is it one of the pages in the Information section of the control panel?

Make a script on your server like this:

<?
phpinfo()
?>


That'll show you all the PHP Settings... look for the PHP SELF that Rick mentions. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

Without being able to look at the phpinfo to find out if PHP_SELF is getting reported correctly by PHP it's hard to say for sure what's going on. You might want to put in a request to your host to check on this since you are unable to do so. That would help so we'd at least know if PHP was reporting correctly.

Hi Rick,

Here is the response from our host:

PHP_SELF has been deprecated in php for the last
couple of versions. You will need to replace all references
to $PHP_SELF with $SCRIPT_NAME. The phpinfo function has been turned off
for security reasons.

Does this mean I am going to have to modify all of my PHP files?

Ha HA!!

That did it!

Replacing all occurrences of "PHP_SELF" with "SCRIPT_NAME" fixed it right up!

Cheers,

Chris

Rick -
This fixes the issue of the forum headers sometimes appearing in the admin section as well. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />
