going through this MOD and wanting to MOD the MOD a little, i am struck by the total LACK of comments in the code..
IF this is an educational as well as support forum AND IF the intent is to be helpful THEN there should be at least a few critical comments embedded within the code so as to enlighten those of us who are total idiots with just enough knowledge to be really dangerous..
"just enough knowledge" in this case is like a terrorist bomber NOT exploding until he is at least half way to his target of innocent people..
what i REALLY would love to have is a comment explaining this line, below:
if( $icq!= '' || $aim != '' || $msn != '' || $yim != '' || $website != '' || $location != '' || $occupation != '' || $interests != '' || $signature != '' )
what i THINK it does is set up an IF statement that will do something, as yet undetermined by yours truly, based upon what is IN, or NOT in, the various data fields..
i am guessing, without a php manual at hand, that IF
this data field: $aim != ''
is empty the IF statement fails and falls through to the next line in the code..
and that if there IS data, then a BOT has made it and the whole process dies and the spambot warning email is sent..
Soooooo, off to the digital trenches to do battle with php stuff and HOPE my miniscual experience with "programming" or total lack of experience writing BAT files will get me through to a MODified MOD that will fit my needs..
if anyone has any knowledge on this matter a post here will be appreciated..
thanks and good morning..
