Accessing php variables from outside phpBB instances

Post by armsch9 » Fri Aug 24, 2007 12:08 am

I'm currently in the process of implementing a wiki with my phpBB 2.0.22 board (http://bottleweb.org and http://bottleweb.org/wiki/index.php). It's actually not proving too difficult but my only problem now is that while the wiki is running, the forum php files are not, so none of the variables exist in the wiki instance. I'm talking about U_LOGIN_LOGOUT, U_FAQ, U_PRIVATEMSGS, etc.

For the FAQ page, forum link, member list, register link and profile link this isn't a problem since I can just replace the links with http links for pages inside the wiki. My problem is that I don't have access to the U_LOGIN_LOGOUT and U_PRIVATEMSGS, which tell my menu buttons when to display "Log in" or "log out", as well as an icon of an envelope when I have no messages, so I can't simply make an html link.

Sorry if I've waffled on the point is I'm trying to access these variables from outside phpBB, how do I do this? I'm using mediaWIKI which is also php/html.

To rephrase my question:

How do I recreate the values in the U_LOGIN_LOGOUT and U_PRIVATEMSGS variables required for the titlebar menu buttons from scratch in another php file?

You would have to incorporate your new page into the phpbb sessions system by including the standard code at the very top of your php script.

Code: Select all

define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = './'; 
include($phpbb_root_path . 'extension.inc'); 
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.'.$phpEx); 
$userdata = session_pagestart($user_ip, PAGE_INDEX); 
init_userprefs($userdata);
where the root_path is the relative path from your new page to your phpbb root.

After that, you can access the phpbb database to get your stuff. If you use the standard phpBB page_header

Code: Select all

$page_title = 'My page';
include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/page_header.'.$phpEx);

then those template variables would be filled in for you. Otherwise, you could copy the code from includes/page_header.php

Ok so I'm using mediawiki 1.10, and I've tried putting this into the my_template.php file:

Code: Select all

define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = './';
include($phpbb_root_path . 'extension.inc');
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.'.$phpEx);
$userdata = session_pagestart($user_ip, PAGE_INDEX);
init_userprefs($userdata);
And I get an error telling me that the header information has already been passed by page_header.php, and can't be accessed again (by mediawiki's own header information). I'm thinking that the easiest way around this would be to manually get the "if logged in" stuff and put it all in the mediawiki php file.

I mean, it's overkill to load all those php files just for two yes/no variables right? Do you know what code I would need to add to a PHP file to get the privatemsgs and u_login_logout variables? I can't think of any other way to do this...

That is true.
As I said, the code has to be at the "very top" of your php script, meaning it has to execute before any http output is created, otherwise the sessions cookie cannot be written.

I tried adding that code to the top of my wiki's index.php file, and I get the following error:

Code: Select all

define('IN_PHPBB', true); $phpbb_root_path = './'; include($phpbb_root_path . 'extension.inc'); include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.'.$phpEx); $userdata = session_pagestart($user_ip, PAGE_INDEX); init_userprefs($userdata);

It is not at the very top.
As the error message says, you are writing HTTP output at least through line-8 of that index.php file.

Code: Select all

ok, when he said to put that code at the very top of the page, it still needs to be under <?php

Am I missing something? Why would this not work???

I thought that maybe I should put it in the index.php file instead (since this gets executed first), so I tried that but it didn't work either (again with the code right below the <?php line). the contents of index.php is:

what error did you get with the code in the index.php file?
I can help you edit your forums at a reasonable price, send a PM if you can't get something figured out here.

you need to adjust

Code: Select all

$phpbb_root_path = './';
to point to your phpbb directory

Ok we're getting somewhere now, I put this in and got this error:
Hacking attempt
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: session_pagestart() in /home/www/bottleweb.org/wiki/index.php on line 7
line 7 of index.php is:

Code: Select all

$userdata = session_pagestart($user_ip, PAGE_INDEX);
Can I bypass this hacking protection thing? or is that a bad idea?
