sk8: it´ll be probably possible in the next version of phpNewsManager and phpWebMagazine. if you like i can send you an updated code which allows to insert common html anchor tag as well as transforms correctly plain urls (with or without the specified protocol)...

I recently put PHP and MySQL on my webserver and have had some manner of luck creating simple membership-based systems as well as a forum.

But, I seem to be at an impasse with PhpNewsmanager (it was my goal to install and then open her up to see how it runs.)

Alas, I must have some kind of setting that is fouling me up. When I login, after a successful install, it simply refreshes the page. I believe it is getting screwed in some kind of INCLUDE that checks to see if I logged in correctly. Since NewsManager does not appear to use md5, I am able to doublechck both username and pw in the admin table, and I am inputting them correctly (plus, I´ve tried a couple of installs with the same results.)

I went in and turned my globals on, rebooted and continue to have the same problem. Since this is a test box, I have permissions set to max on every file (i.e. read, write, exectute, modify and the whole shebang,) so I am certain this is not the issue.

This leaves me with wondering what setting I need to tweak. I have php 4.3.2 and the latest version of MySQL. I am running this on a windows box....(but, php and mysql are running fine in all other scripts, both homemade and those I have downloaded for free.)

Thanks for reading this mess and thanks again if you happen to respond.

Ok, a slight update on this. I have poured through my ini file, testing a multitude of changes (until I actually broke php and had to restore the original=). No setting that I change fixes this.

My sessions are definitely working, with the simple scripts of my own, so I figured it must be something more complex.

In that vein, I decided to run a test on another news program, found here : [LINK]

This worked like a champ. Logging in fine and everything is a go. Moved on and tried another one and it worked too.

But, I want to use this news program and I am very curious as to why this is not working. So, still hoping for help out there.

still no reply............... WHY ??
but hej found serveral errors, alot of typos in the script, delet instead of delete -> cofrm in instead of confirm . Pitty cause the script still looks very promising.

Ow and a tip for the programmer-> when you use javacommands never use capital letters, IE60 and some other browsers have problems with that
(like the GID42 error and stuff like that)

IE60 is very casesensitive. Oew and try out CHMOD 755 for the picturefolders, cause 777 is very risky business

Keeping you updated
