Question for whoever wrote the PHP front end?
hello!

Looking at the extraction of variables in the print_page function, I just wanted to ask how you would fix this problem with something I'm working on.

User registers, by completing a profile page.
Logs in.
Clicks to modify their account profile page.

If the user leaves any of the fields EMPTY (lets say their first name for this example), when the page of errors is returned currently their "existing" first name is put back into the template field - instead of remaining EMPTY.

Within the template it current shows... <?php if ($firstname) { ?><?php print $firstname; ?><?php } ?>

If the $IN var was extracted with EXTR_OVERWRITE then it works correctly, but I understand that would be a security risk.

Any ideas?

I'm not - I've just used a similar function to the print_page one in the php front end for my own project so all the same questions apply. :)

Kinda sad I guess.
Perl is out the door these days and no-one hardly ever programmes in it anymore.
If links is to survive it will have to be done in php in the near future.

my 2 cents as I only ever use php now - wont touch cgi.
