My Quake 3 Config maker...

Ok, for the last few months I've left this, as I had other more important things to attend to, but now I have the time to sort this out.

Basically, my Config Maker isn't working, and I think it may have been the change in PHP to register_globals to OFF (I think - I'm a n00b at PHP).

The input takes the form:

Code:
[b]<font size="2">Name</font>


                <input type="text" name="pn1" size="20">

                [/b]</font></p>
And the generated page grabs this information in the form of a variable named $pn1 and prints it like so:

Code:
print("
seta name \"$pn1\"\n");
("seta name" is a Q3 console variable to set the players name via the q3.cfg file)

Any ideas as to how to either re-write this, or to get it working some other way?

As I said, this config generator in itself was a major achievement for me, as I know practically nothing about PHP, html is my limit I'm afraid.

TIA.

You're right - this has stopped working due to the change of register_globals. What you want to do depends on whether the form you use to input the data uses the GET or POST methods. If it's GET, you want to replace $pn1 with $_GET["pn1"], if it's POST, you replace it with $_POST["pn1"].

Should sort your problem.

Thanks to both of you though, as it's now working again :)
