Please Test Talkback

Sunday May 30th, 1999

We have made some internal changes (no visible changes) to our talkback section, so please test it out by posting test posts here. We're especially interested in test posts from members.

UPDATE: The member area is now back online. I encourage people who are already members to make sure that they can still access their account information - go to members, choose Edit An Existing User Account. No need to change any of your information, but if you can log in there and see your info, then everything is fine. I have tested this on my own account, and created a few others, and everything seems to be in order.

Hey Chris I found another stupid bug one that i've run into many times.

when you create a new account and have a space mistakenly entered after say firstname you get your default nospaces allowed error

what I do in this case is this:

$in_rep_firstname = ereg_replace( " ", "", $firstname );

it will insert "" (nospace) where there are spaces then you might want to confirm the users entries

echo the forms results to the user before you commit the data to the database and ask for confirmation

so if i entered pete man for example the parsed result would be:

firstname: peteman lastname: collins etc.

the user would then see that a mistake was made and if unhappy with the results go back and change their entry. to say:

pete-man or whatever
