SocialEngine 4: Profile Activity Empty Fault

Andrew - SocialEngine

Have you every had had your SocialEngine profile work as well as you expect?

Now when you visit a profile you need to click on Activity to see what the user has been up to?

Well it seems its a common fault within the SocialEngine Platform.

The Fault occurs when you have disabled plugins still sitting within a layout, due to the plugin being disabled Social Engine does not remove it from any Active Layout Templates.

To fix this problem go to your Admin Panel and Layout Editor select Members Profile.

Once you have loaded the template you will see Shaded Widgets which are inactive, if you can remove the widget do so otherwise move the widget to the bottom of the Tab Table click on Save Changes and your done.

If you go back to a members profile it will load without any issues now.

Opencart – PHP Coding (escaping data)

This is a continuation of the PHP coding articles I have been writing. This article covers a very important basic in PHP development, escaping data. Everywhere there is a heavy PHP development that requires inserting information into a Database, if it is scripted correctly you will see that this information/data is more than likely escaped. Escaping data is very important to maintaining the integrity of what goes into a database.

Golden Rule: Any data that is not filtered or escaped and is sent via means of someone else on your website is considered tainted. Let’s take a form submission for example. Jack Johnson fills out a contact form with his name, email, description and subject and pressed SEND. All of this text is considered tainted until escaped/filtered. Hackers just love to use contact forms for SQL injections and is an age old trick to gain access to areas of your server.
