Title: random password
Post by: superQ on February 25, 2006, 08:48:46 AM
I found ths snippert and was wondering if it can be used in a php block. I have it here ,but it don't work right.

http://www.therockpile.zeeblo.com/smf/index.php

the code in the block is.

<?php
/** * The letter l (lowercase L) and the number 1
* have been removed, as they can be mistaken
* for each other. */
function createRandomPassword()
{    $chars = "abcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyz023456789";    srand((double)microtime()
*1000000);    $i = 0;    $pass = '' ;   
while ($i <= 7) {        $num = rand() % 33;       
$tmp = substr($chars, $num, 1);       
$pass = $pass . $tmp;        $i++;    }   
return $pass;
}
// Usage$password = createRandomPassword();
echo "Your random password is: $password";
?>

you can see this eror right on the page.

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '<' in /home/rockstar/public_html/smf/Sources/Load.php(1607) : eval()'d code(34) : eval()'d code on line 1

Ranodom password in a Block ?

Isent that mod made for users that have forgotten their passwords and need to be sended one trough email?

If im wrong there my apologys.

The first thought when i saw your code was if you try that in a Block. remove the php tags <?php and ?> in the start and end of the code then paste it in a PHP block

make sure the variable $pass is not used in SMF. Also I do not see $password defined.

Change
Code: [Select]
// Usage$password = createRandomPassword();
echo "Your random password is: $password";

TO
Code: [Select]
// Usage
$password = createRandomPassword();
echo "Your random password is: $password";

And see if that helps.

I don't know.I guess it is not to usefull. I personally use Password scrambler. I just found that place and it looks like a lot of stuff that may be useful to go into blocks.  I am interested in that flashchat in articles thing though.Soon as I save up $5.00. ;)
