Block is not showingApril 18, 2007 @ 10:08am
I tried the following snippet from the snippets sections and my block just does not show up. I've set all the properties to visible and allows all users to view the block...

$ArticlesCount = '5';
$CategoriesList = '0';

$TeaserLength = 100;

// ========================

$ArticlesCode = '';
$ArticlesPrinted = 0;






if (strpos($ArticlesCount,',') !== false) {
list($ACOffset,$ACCount) = explode(',',$ArticlesCount);
$LimitString = intval($ACOffset).','.intval($ACCount);
}
else {
$LimitString = intval($ArticlesCount);
}

if ($CategoriesList != '') {

$CategoriesArray = explode(',',$CategoriesList);
for ($i = 0; $i < count($CategoriesArray); $i++) {
$CategoriesArray[$i] = intval($CategoriesArray[$i]);
}
$CategoriesList2 = implode(',',$CategoriesArray);

$query_na = "SELECT * FROM `".$Settings['DBPrefix']."na-Articles` WHERE ApprovedBy!='' AND Category IN (".$CategoriesList2.") ORDER BY DateCode DESC LIMIT ".$LimitString;
}
else {
$query_na = "SELECT * FROM `".$Settings['DBPrefix']."na-Articles` WHERE ApprovedBy!='' ORDER BY DateCode DESC LIMIT ".$LimitString;
}

$result_na = mysql_query($query_na) or die (mysql_error());
while ($row_na = mysql_fetch_array($result_na)) {

if ($row_na['Teaser'] == '') {
$StrippedArticle = strip_tags($row_na['Article']);

if (strlen($StrippedArticle) > $TeaserLength) {
$TeaserSection = substr($StrippedArticle,0,$TeaserLength);
while (substr($TeaserSection,strlen($TeaserSection)-1,1) != ' ') {
$TeaserSection = substr($TeaserSection,0,strlen($TeaserSection)-1);
}
while (substr($TeaserSection,strlen($TeaserSection)-1,1) == ' ') {
$TeaserSection = substr($TeaserSection,0,strlen($TeaserSection)-1);
}

$TeaserSection .= '... <font size="1">[<a href="'.$MainURL.'/articles/view/'.$row_na['RecordNumber'].'.html">'.$MsgText[7][78].'</a>]</font>';
$row_na['Title'] = '<a href="'.$MainURL.'/articles/view/'.$row_na['RecordNumber'].'.html">'.$row_na['Title'].'</a>';
$ArticleLinked = 'y';
}
else {
$TeaserSection = $StrippedArticle;
}
}
else {
$TeaserSection = substr($row_na['Teaser'],0,$TeaserLength);

if (strlen($row_na['Teaser']) > strlen($TeaserSection)) {
while (substr($TeaserSection,strlen($TeaserSection)-1,1) != ' ') {
$TeaserSection = substr($TeaserSection,0,strlen($TeaserSection)-1);
}
while (substr($TeaserSection,strlen($TeaserSection)-1,1) == ' ') {
$TeaserSection = substr($TeaserSection,0,strlen($TeaserSection)-1);
}
}

$TeaserSection .= '... <font size="1">[<a href="'.$MainURL.'/articles/view/'.$row_na['RecordNumber'].'.html">'.$MsgText[7][78].'</a>]</font>';
$row_na['Title'] = '<a href="'.$MainURL.'/articles/view/'.$row_na['RecordNumber'].'.html">'.$row_na['Title'].'</a>';
$ArticleLinked = 'y';
}


$ArticlesPrinted++;

if ($ArticlesCode != '') {
$ArticlesCode .= '<br><br>';
}

$ArticlesCode .= '<b>'.$row_na['Title'].'</b><br>'.$TeaserSection;




} // end while rows loop


print $ArticlesCode;

Hi Brendan,

I don't know of any issues with this code and just pasted it into our demo and it seems to be working fine there.

I'd be happy to look at your site for you, but need the URL and admin access. Please DO NOT post this info here, rather send an email with this information to support@flexcms.com

Thanks!

Ok I re-created it and the following error now shows up...

Parse error: parse error in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\mysite.com\httpdocs\index.php(3166) : eval()'d code on line 1
