Splash edit

V7.4.2

Having real problems editing front page splash through basic settings.

Initial edit works fine and looks good, all centered nicely, pretty box etc, but on saving it all goes sideways and I'm left with this:

 

 

\\r\\n\r\n

Any help to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated

There are three minor bugs in 7.4.2.  If you search the forum here you will find the solution.  Boonex has ignored repeated calls to fix the bugs and release one last final Dolphin release.

Thanks gg

Only three minor bugs!!

I've come up with quite a few so far and I've only been working on this particular site for a couple of days.

 

I'll hunt through the forum now and see what I can find. If I have no luck there I'll contact Boonex support.

Here is a list of three; repeated calls for Boonex to fix these are ignored, I mean totally ignored and there was a promise to support Dolphin.

Here is the splash code fix that Deano submitted and that Boonex has not implemented.

 

 

Boonex is going to have to go though dolphin and evaluate there use of their process_db_input function.

Things have changed since they switched from php mysql database functions to PDO database functions. They are using the PDO prepare function when writing to the database. This should prevent the need to escape special characters as it was done before. In this case the escaping of the splash code is not needed.

So do this.

Edit the file administration\basic_settings.php

Look for this at about line 41

setParam('splash_code',  process_db_input($_POST['code'], CH_TAGS_VALIDATE));

Change it to this

setParam('splash_code',  clear_xss($_POST['code']));

That should fix it.
