How Did You Hear About Us add-on - missing line


Recommended Posts

Just came across an error in the instructions of the "How Did You Hear About Us" add-on contribution (which by the way is exactly what I was looking for :thumbsup: , thank you!) -

The instructions say this:

In catalog\create_account.php

Look for: (around line 54)
   $password = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['password']);
   $confirmation = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['confirmation']);
Add below:
//rmh referral start
   $source = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['source']);
   if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['source_other'])) $source_other = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['source_other']);
//rmh referral end


And neglect to add that you need to comment out:

  tep_db_query("insert into " . TABLE_CUSTOMERS_INFO . " (customers_info_id, customers_info_number_of_logons, customers_info_date_account_created) values ('" . (int)$customer_id . "', '0', now())");

which follows, or else you get a 'duplicate key' error when you try to create a new account.


Or else I read the instructions wrong and somehow missed that... but maybe this can help other people who might get stuck on it.


Thanks for a very useful contrib! B)

Yes you read the directions wrong. The directions are based on a clean version of osC.


There is no need to 'comment out' the line. Something else you have installed has modified your create_account page.....


If you look at a clean version of catalog/create_account you will only find ONE occurance of " TABLE_CUSTOMERS_INFO " .... so there is absolutely no need to comment it out....


..But I do agree this is a great contribution..
