Change species, keep data - not allowing updates

Post by dpm1 »

Receiving the following when trying to update 'my fish' listing

...I know, I know...why didn't I get it right in the first place?
Well in my defence it is Otocinclus vittatus > macrospilus so not exactly a major error, nor however is it an easily noticeable one when trying to id small tree huggers in planted tanks. (Actually I stumbled across an old but clear pic and decided to double check :d )

But anyway I was thwarted as I can't change it anyway... :((

General Error
Illegal use of $_GET. You must use the request class or request_var() to access input data. Found in /home/webcat/planetcatfish.com/common/includes/my_fish_validate.php on line 96. This error message was generated by deactivated_super_global.
No longer active.

I'm looking at this - should be relatively easy to fix, I think (I have already fixed the exact one that was in your post, but then immediately tripped over another of the same kind, so good thing I tested locally before sending a fix to Jools...)

Thanks Mats, I'm heading over to Denmark this weekend, so it won't be until Monday before I can put any fixes you've submitted into the wild.

Cheers

Hi Mats,

I hope you had a nice weekend and that the slightly alarming missing "d." from your last post doesn't mean anything bad! :-)

Anyway, are you still looking at this or shall I pick it up?

Cheers,

Jools

My typing isn't getting any better, is it... :)

I will have another look at it - I think it's related to the old "lets name these URL-variables differently between phases" that we have in some of the admin pages.

This should now be fixed. Can you try it out and see if you can fix your Oto Id?
