Hey Guys,

after a night of trial-and-error i thought you could help me with this:

i already changed the paths - see here:

$news_path = "/usr/export/www/vhosts/funnetwork/hosting/letsrock/rotschrift/newman/gfx/news";

$news_url = "../newman/gfx/news/";

and referenced the local in the newman_lib.php, but the #*@! - WebMagazine wants to find the picture in the WebMagazine folder - i have no idea why...

try and see yourself @

you have to be very quick to see the missing picture and hit the right mouse button to see its location

crazy side-effect: the smileys ARE working, the smiley´s path in the is:

$smileys_path = "/usr/export/www/vhosts/funnetwork/hosting/letsrock/rotschrift/newman/gfx/smileys";

$smiley_url = "../newman/gfx/smileys/";


thanks in advance for your help,

Ok, now i can login with Internet Explorer.
I can add news and upload a picture, even insert a picture in Preview.

But IE closes when i hit Submit to post the news.
This happend twice.

And when i am in to write the news,
in the left bottom of IE there is a javascript error.

Just used my test page , did the same news and no errors came up.

See how to ad a picture to the Preview:

Yes i have seen it.
Great. Magician

And i saw that the test "Preview image" i did was submitted.
Even the Comment on the news was there.

Good luck with the site.

Just one thing: center the page.
Can be done in header.php just center the first two tables.

Up to the next error Snowing

Well, the output is html.
So: vieuw source or Netscape CTRL U

just 8 lines before where the script starts.

What is the body tag doing there?

All the scriptcode is there.
It does not show up.

What have you changed?

as far as i know, nothing has been changed (at least i didn´t change anything) - what about overwriting the concerning file?

in my opinion, it must have to do with this (see below) function:

function ShowScrollNews($num,$delay=3000,$width=150,$height=150,$type=0)
var delay= //set delay between message change (in miliseconds)
var fcontent=new Array()
begintag=´´ //set opening tag, such as font declarations
if ($type == 1) $types = "RAND()";
else $types = datum;

$x = 0;
$res = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$GLOBALS[´db_news´]." ORDER BY ".$types." DESC LIMIT ".$num) or die("LINE 1074: ".mysql_error());
while($ar = mysql_fetch_array($res))
$ar[preview] = eregi_replace("\n","",$ar[preview]);
$ar[preview] = eregi_replace("\r","",$ar[preview]);
$ar[preview] = wordwrap($ar[preview], 25, " ", 1);

echo ´fcontent[´.$x.´]="´.$ar[headline].´
´.substr(pic($ar[preview],0), 0, 100).´...   \"\"/"´."\n";

I have the same problem but your explanation a bit too advance for me. I cannot add photos to news, The new ticker is not working, if I try to upload photos to news I get these messages:

LINE 262:Unknown column ´thumbnail´ in ´field list´

LINE 42:Unknown column ´gid´ in ´where clause´

Hi onuzu,

see my test site:

There you can download the files.
There were a few errors in the original script.
Click the link: ´Read This First´

You can browse this forrum, to find out what was wrong.
Like gid has to be id, thumbnail is wrong to.
The first script was OK.
After adding new items, a few old codes were still in the script
thats why you get the errormessages.

Hi Peter,

Thanks very much, I re intalled the program it got better but when I tried to upload a photo I got the following message:

First it shows Error! When I click on the alert pop up I got: Warning: move_uploaded_file(/home/virtual/site19/fst/home/thismonth/public_html/WebMagazine/newman/gfx/gallery/4A90799775.jpg): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/virtual/site19/fst/home/thismonth/public_html/WebMagazine/newman/pictures.php on line 375

Warning: move_uploaded_file(): Unable to move ´/tmp/php9IGJEU´ to ´/home/virtual/site19/fst/home/thismonth/public_html/WebMagazine/newman/gfx/gallery/4A90799775.jpg´ in /home/virtual/site19/fst/home/thismonth/public_html/WebMagazine/newman/pictures.php on line 375

Do you know how I can fix this?

´failed to open stream: Permission denied"

Most of the time a chmod
Try setting: 755 or 644

If not working, read this:

In the file
you have the path to the items:
smilys, partners, topic, news
gallery, weather, story and news_pics

Download the to your computer ( in a different folder) look if the items are there.
Like this below:

$smileys_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\smileys";
$smiley_url = "./gfx/smileys/";
$partners_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\partners";
$partners_url = "./gfx/partners/";
$topic_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\topic";
$topic_url = "./topic/";
$rss_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\rss";
$news_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\news";
$news_url = "./gfx/news/";
$gallery_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\gallery";
$gallery_url = "./gfx/gallery/";
$weather_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\weather";
$weather_url = "./gfx/weather/";
$story_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\news";
$story_url = "./gfx/news/";
$news_pics_path = "d:\www\\www\dvzkruiningen\newman\gfx\news";
$news_pics_url = "./gfx/news/";

Of not add them by hand, and upload the file.
Rememeber, never overwrite an existing file, unlless you have a copy of the original.
On your server you firtst can renema the original to old_filename.php

This are the lines on my lycos site:
$smileys_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/webmagazine/newman/gfx/smileys";
$smiley_url = "./newman/gfx/smileys/";
$partners_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/webmagazine/newman/gfx/partners";
$partners_url = "./newman/gfx/partners/";
$topic_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/webmagazine/newman/topic";
$topic_url = "./newman/topic";
$rss_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/webmagazine/newman/rss";
$news_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs//newman/gfx/news";
$news_url = "./newman/gfx/news/";
$gallery_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/webmagazine/newman/gfx/gallery";
$gallery_url = "[LINK]";
$weather_path = "/data/members/free/tripod/nl/v/a/z/vazed/htdocs/newman/gfx/weather";
$weather_url = "./newman/gfx/weather/";

Different from the one above.
Because we have two parts: Newman and Webmagazine.

Just depending on the way you set it up.
You can have a folder Webmagaxine and in this folder a folder Newman.
Or you have a folder Webmagazine and a folder Newman in the root.

And you need TWO files.
The original one is in Newman. This is OK after the install.
A copy of the file has to go in Webmagazine, and in this file you have to set the path to Newman. The script has to know where the files are.

the newman script is not running under PHP5
On lycos with PHP4 it is doing fine.

There are different versions of php an mysql.
That´s why not al scripts will run on all servers.
