Full Version: Custom pages in MyBB with secureCookieFlag
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
,Hi all,
I have a question regarding the custom pages. Usually I use the default template from MyBB docs for creating custom page i.e.

<?php

// Set some useful constants that the core may require or use
define("IN_MYBB", 1);
define('THIS_SCRIPT', 'my_plugin.php');

// Including global.php gives us access to a bunch of MyBB functions and variables
require_once "./global.php";

// Only required because we're using misc_help for our page wrapper
$lang->load("misc");

// Add a breadcrumb
add_breadcrumb('My Page', "my_plugin.php");

$hello_world = 'This text will appear on the page';
eval('$sections  = "' . $templates->get('hello_world_template') . '";');

// Using the misc_help template for the page wrapper
eval("\$page = \"".$templates->get("misc_help")."\";");

// Spit out the page to the user once we've put all the templates and vars together
output_page($page);

?>

Now I have observed something interesting,
- If I use the secureCookieFlag enabled, $mybb->user['uid'] is not identified
- If I disable secureCookieFlag, $mybb->user['uid'] is not identified
(Make sure to logout and Login after changing this setting)

My question - Is there anything missing in custom page template that should be there ?

I don't see a reason why $mybb->user['uid'] is not available for you.
Try to print / echo $mybb->user['uid'] to be sure;

Not working for me buddy, I did the same. Maybe something else I need to add in the php template ?
If global.php is included $mybb should be available.
Have you placed the file at root? Is the require path correct?
Are you getting any PHP error for file inclusion?

All good buddy, exactly same thing I am doing. This is probably going to hurt my head a lot more to figure out what is going on. Anything else you think might be the reason ?
Not a place to do this, but we globalize variables to be available in plugins.
global $mybb;

If it is already declared you will get it.
