Hey there,

I am trying to add a Feedback Block to my site, meaning that any User may post some comment about the site without having to open an article or forum topic.

Here's how I started very naively (normal block):

<table><tr><td>
Please drop us a few lines ...yaddeldaddel</td></tr>
<form action="http://www.bankingrisks.com/comment.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="sid" value="2004083013210284">
<input type="hidden" name="type" value="article">
<tr>
<td align="left" valign="top"><textarea name="comment" wrap="physical" rows="8" cols="20"></textarea></td>
</tr><tr>
<td><input type="submit" name="mode" value="Submit Comment">
</td></tr>
</form>
</table>

I'm not sure if I'm getting there that way.
I would still need a pid which must be automatically increased (to be sure, with every time the site is being hit - gee, I hope geeklog has no problems with pid=9235135135223528 +E11 LOL )

Or do I have to make a new function?

I don't find the where the $pid is defined. Is there a function in lib_common I can use as a sample?

What exactly are you trying to do here? It looks like you're trying to create a comment submission form. Is that what you really want? I would expect a feedback form to send the feedback as an email ...

If you really want a comment submission form, then you'll have to copy some of the code from comment.php. The pid can be 0 if you want to attach the comment to the actual story.

bye, Dirk

this would raise two questions:

As I need 2 functions, originally function display_form and function send_messages, how can I arrange both of them in one block?

PHP Blocks only allow one function to call.
And Static Pages or HTML Blocks do not allow PHP.

secondly, can I simply use the 'commentspeedlimit' for mail functions, too?

You could copy the HTML form for the "email user" form (profiles/contactuserform.thtml) into your block and let Geeklog send the email.

Huh?

Simply use your own speed limit: COM_checkSpeedlimit('myspeedlimit') etc.
