  • [CMS] Help making the following PHP into a working PHP Eval Page!

    Hello, I'm more of a designer/Flash/CSS.. have been trying along with help threads here but just can't get it to work.

    I'm trying to run the following as a PHP Direct Eval page, but getting syntax errors:

    PHP Code:

    <?php

    //use cURL to get the data from TRION  DO NOT EDIT THE LINES BELOW!!! 
    //IF YOU WANT TO EDIT TEXT JUMP TO LINE 28
        
    function fetchXML($url)
        {
            
    $ch curl_init();
            
    $useragent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.1) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/2.0.0.1";
            
    curl_setopt ($chCURLOPT_URL$url);
            
    curl_setopt ($chCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER1);
            
    curl_setopt ($chCURLOPT_USERAGENT$useragent);
            
    $data curl_exec($ch);
            
    curl_close($ch);
            return 
    $data;
        }
        
    define("USE_CURL"true);
        
    $url "http://www.riftgame.com/en/status/na-status.xml";
        
    //get xml doc
        
    $data fetchXML($url);
        
    //create a SimpleXML object to parse the xml
        
    $status = new SimpleXmlElement($data);

        
    //Display the Header for shard info table
        
    echo "<h3>Current Shard Status:</h3>";
        echo 
    "<div style=\"width:600px; padding:3px; margin:3px;\">";
        echo

    $pvp =='True' && $rp =='False'){echo "PVP";}
            elseif(
    $pvp =='False' && $rp =='True'){echo "PVE-RP";}
            else{echo 
    "PVP-RP";}
            
    ?>
        </div>
        </div>
    <? ?>
    So I learned a bit about converting echo's, using outputs etc, but just can't manage.

    Could anyone help getting this code into a working CMS page? It should display a nice table form, I'll be applying CSS and correct images to load in.

    I'm not super great at PHP, but looking at the requirements in a PHP Eval page, it says you need to use
    Code:
    $output = "Hello World! </br>";
    So basically, you can't use the ECHOs to get the output, but instead you need to built the $output string throughout the PHP, and then output it at the end. You would probably built a different string ($string for example), and append it each time you want to display something ($string .= "print this"), and then at the very end, have $output = $string. I hope that makes some sense...

      I tried replacing the echos with output= but what confuses me is there's also a large chunk of raw HTML below, all the <divs>. Would each of these need an output= as well? Do they all go in one large output?

      And if there's raw HTML in here, what do I need a final output= for?

      Btw I'm not lazy, just hoping if someone could convert this, I'd be able to fully understand the mechanics and take it from there

        I have to run an errand, but I'll try to convert it when I get back. Like I said, I'll not a super PHP coder, but I think I know what needs to be done to get it to work. We'll see. But, if there is someone else out there reading this, feel free to help out!

          Ok, well I can't fully test it, but I think this * should * work. Let me know what you get.

          PHP Code:

          EDIT: Ok, I was able to test it some and it appears to be working good. The only issue seems to be, since your images are relatively pathed, its showing the ALT text, which seems to be screwing up the DIVs. But other than that, all seems to be good.

            Got it on and it's working great! However two weird things, at first it was working fine in 'Article View' but on Section View (with article set to "show full article in section) it was giving another syntax error, but after a few loads... it disappeared. At least it's working now :-)

            I loaded the images in but it's still strange alignment, no problem I can fix that easily.

            Thanks so much, you're a life saver!

              No problem. I was gonna mess with it some more to try to figure out the alignment issues. I think the starting and ending DIVs need to be with the other bits of code, and not separate outside of the IF statements. It'll cause some repetition of code, but I think it will clean it up. I'll try it out with the ALT tags and see what happens, and post back my results.

                Ok, I got it to work with the ALT text, by adding in some <br /> tags. Take them out as needed to make it work properly with the images.

                PHP Code:
