Strange Behavior
« on: November 21, 2014, 08:04:50 PM »
I am in the process of creating a simple text based browser game. However when i attempt to log in in via IWeb, it keeps refreshing the page. It's supposed to check the log in info when the form is "posted". It leads me to believe that IWeb isn't sending "post" data. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Omega Space Protons

Who should check what log in info?

Both IBrowse and AWeb are perfectly capable of posting data.

You need to provide way more information if you want some sensible input.

- which browser?
- what server (what software? is it local or remote?)?
- what does the login form look like?
- what is the script doing *exactly*?
- are cookies involved?

Checking if the form was posted and if it was then check the login info against the mysql database and return if it matches. Otherwise show the log in page. Source Code
Snip
Code: [Select]
// if the form wasn't submited                                else if(!isset($_POST["submit"]))                                {                                 // display it                                 $chops->display('index.tpl');                                
                                   // and terminate                                    exit;                                }                                // otherwise the form was submitted                                else                                {                                 // if the username is empty                                 if(empty($_POST["username"]))                                 {                                 // set the dialog title                                 $chops->title = 'Error';

Hey it's been a month since i last posted and no one has answered seemed to figure out why this is happening. I also tried figuring it out to no avail. If anyone could please take a look and see if they can spot anything obvious it would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to bump this topic but it seems not many Amiga programmers here, or no one can figure out what's wrong. Still working on this.
