suggestion... change things from 'Contact' to 'contact'.

also on install got this,
Text Formatted Code

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_IF, expecting ')' in /var/www/localhost/htdocs/destr0yr.com/plugins/Contacts/language/english.php on line 52

 

Text Formatted Code

        'access_denied'     => 'Access Denied',
        'access_denied_msg' => 'Only Contacts.admin Users have Access to this Page.  Your user name and IP have been recorded.' If you are a Root user you will need to set besure to set Security Rights Correctly,
        'admin'                 => 'Plugin Admin',


 

changed to
Text Formatted Code

        'access_denied'     => 'Access Denied',
        'access_denied_msg' => 'Only Contacts.admin Users have Access to this Page.  Your user name and IP have been recorded. If you are a Root user you will need to set besure to set Security Rights Correctly',
        'admin'                 => 'Plugin Admin',


 

not sure if thats how its supposed to be... but it worked.

Also, /path/to/geeklog/public_html/admin/plugins/Contacts/admin.php doesn't exist... is it important?

I'll check it out.

Quick Easteregg, atm anyhow it will become dynamic and more useful later, look at public_html index.php
You will see this code:

if ($row["misc_1"] == "Illinois")

Changing tha value here will cuase any record with a Location name matching to highlight yellow when you view the records. That same change can be applied in admin/index.php and printerfriendly/index.php

(however it makes no differance in the printer friendly since backgrounds images do not print by default in most browsers (user selectable in most cases)

when at /admin/plugins/Contacts/insert.php, there's a link that says `I changed my mind I want to return to the Admin Screen'. The link is pointing to /admin/plugins/Contacts/admin.php.

Might I suggest that you change the name of the plugin so that people do not confuse it with my plugin of the same name. See Main Story at Gplugs Site

Maybe someone can explain what this plugin offers that the original contacts that Tom wrote does not offer.

Honestly I did not see the plugin Tom made. I will change the name and I'll take a look at Tom's plugin.

edit:
Interesting I looked around for a plugin but somehow I never noticed his in the plugins downloads. Oh well. So much for my contributing....

Tom's Plugin has most of the features I planned on, and looking at his set up is currently beyond my level of php programming, I will be working on a add-on for features I need at my company that his plugin does not address, so keep an eye out.

I did not mean to discourage you from writing your plugin, you can learn alot. Everyone might not like my plugin -- we all have different views of things and different needs. If I was writing it now, I would do it different.

Feel free to take my code and modify it and release your modifications back to the community -- thats the way it works best.

I completely agree with Tom, we need more plugin developers in the community. As Tom said, alternatives are nice to have as long as credit is given any code that you've used.

You learn a lot from developing your own plugin and once you have done one, it's a lot easier.

No discouragement here...ok maybe a bit. BUT as I have found at work, when discouragement strikes I usually pump out 3 weeks work in 5 hours...soooo I'll be coding for awhile.

I like your plugin Tom tho looking at its it's not quite where I need it, or rather is more than I need, tho it will have a use for me as well. As I said I'm gonna take a look and probably end up with a Add-on instead of a upgrade to verse 1.1. Time will tell.

I agree that it's time for the Contact Plugin to move to another level. It has been the way it is since GL 1.3.6.

So don't give up.
