Hey folks, running into a problem I cant get my head around.

here is a link to my testing page on: stillstatic.tv.

I'm creating a plugin which:
queries indexhibit for the section number of the loading page,
then checks to see if there is a corresponding file and subdirectory for it.
If so it loads a bit of js, and html to insert a swf movie into the background.
else posts an error in its place.

However, while the URL string seems to be phrased properly (my error code generates a valid link to the file ie: http://www.stillstatic.tv/files/swfBg/11/18o.swf)

When I look at the source for the rendered page, the URL is correct yet the the response headers Im seeing in firebug show that the browser is going to http://www.stillstatic.tv/18o.swf instead!?

Im new to PHP and writing plugins so I don't know how to tackle this. Any Ideas?
I've got further notes on the test page I've been working on - check it out at
http://www.stillstatic.tv/index.php?/about/test/

Here is the plugin code:

Our fourm really needs to renovation to handle code better...soon..

But this...

  1. $swfBg_name  '18o.swf'
  2. $swfBg_url  $base_url'/files/swfBg/'$sec_id'/'$swfBg_name

Can you repost just these two lines?

And, with a simple edit to the root index.php file you can have the section_id...you don't need to make a new query for that.

wow - fast!
In the test page I posted, the error is generated by the plugin on the test page - so it is in there - I'll move it into the template index once I've got the bugs out.

  1. Another try at those lines of code:
  2. $swfBg_name = '18o.swf';
  3. $swfBg_loc = '/files/swfBg/';

$swfBg_url = $base_url . $swfBg_loc . $sec_id .'/'. $swfBg_name;

I burned the htacess file on a pike in the public square - as an example to all others who might misbehave! - But the cowards are still hiding.

  1. RewriteEngine on 
  2. RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
  3. RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
  4. RewriteRule ^(.+) - [PT,L]
  5. RewriteRule ^(.+) index.php

The problem was easy...it was an openbasedir restriction (should have caught it sooner). Meaning, we needed the server path to use with file_exists...an "http" is not sufficient.

The code above has been badly messed up...for future viewers I don't recommend trying to play with it. ;)
