In Topic: Logging off users...gracefully if possible!

You can use the @TIMEOUT variable in P4 to do that, and setting @TFUNCT to a function that does any tidy up needed first, and then links to OFF.


Haven't used P4 for a loooong time so you will have to check, but if I remember correctly, it does the equivalent of pressing ESC/Cancel, and just exits the function directly to @TFUNCT without saving anything. (as you probably shouldnt commit what they might be 1/2 though, atleast that was what we did, and any way.. doing a 'DO' might not work anyway due to other checking in your app)


Have a look at the doc here: http://support.proiv...m_variables.htm





In Topic: C-ISAM to RDBMS

I've not used it, but a company called Transoft write some C-ISAM utils and ODBC drivers I think.

Take a look at Transoft

Also, if you just google 'cisam ODBC' you get a few other things...

Opps, sorry about that, thanks for spotting that :)

Just noticed, when I swapped hosts, I now had a new path to the uploads dir.

Its all fixed now hopefully.

Sure, I've just posted and pinned another poll, and closed the old one.

I added 'Aurora' as an option also.


In Topic: WARNING: Dubious reply notifications

Ok, this has been sorted out.

What was happening was, I have a test site that I test Proivrc on before I do any updates to the site, it doesnt have a DNS name, its just a IP address.

Some spammer had found that site and registered themselves on it, and then was posting lots of spam posts.

The spanner actually replied to one of the posts Richard has been 'subscribed' to for replies, so the test site sent him an email saying there was a new post, but it used the IP address of the test site rather than 'www.proivrc.com'.

I've removed access to the test site now, so he wont be able to spam any more, and any of the links with the IP address will be disabled and not valid now.

Sorry for any inconvenience, and hopefully its all sorted now.

Thanks for the info / notification of the problem Richard :)
