PRADO PHP Framework Google Closure: How not to write JavaScript At the Edge of the Web conference in Perth last week I got to catch up with Dmitry Baranovskiy, the creator of the Raphaël and gRaphaël JavaScript libraries. Perhaps the most important thing these libraries do is make sophisticated vector graphics possible in Internet Explorer, where JavaScript performance is relatively poor. Dmitry, therefore, has little patience for poorly-written JavaScript like the code he found in Google’s just-released Closure Library. Having delivered a talk on how to write your own JavaScript library (detailed notes) at the conference, Dmitry shared his thoughts on the new library over breakfast the next morning. “Just what the world needs—another sucky JavaScript library,” he said. When I asked him what made it ‘sucky’, he elaborated. For the rest of the day, to anyone who would listen, Dmitry cited example after example of the terrible code he had found when he went digging through Closure. “I’ll make you a deal,” I told him.

TYPOlight webCMS - Home Chris Shiflett: Security Corner: Session Fixation Security is gaining more and more attention online. As PHP continues to be a key component of the web’s future, malicious attackers will begin to target weaknesses in PHP apps more frequently, and developers need to be ready. I am very pleased to introduce Security Corner, a new monthly column that is focused completely on web app security. Each month, I will discuss an important topic in great detail that can help you improve the security of your PHP apps and defend against various types of attacks. These topics will not be vague, general overviews, so if you are looking for an introduction to web app security, you will be better served by other sources of information such as the PHP manual's chapter on security. This month’s topic is session fixation, a method of obtaining a valid session identifier without the need for predicting or capturing one. Session Fixation Session security is a vast and complex topic. There are numerous types of session-based attacks. A Simple Attack Listing 1

PHP best practices This guide will give you solutions to common PHP design problems. It also provides a sketch of an application layout that I developed during the implementation of some projects. php.ini quirks Some settings in the php.ini control how PHP interpretes your scripts. This can lead to unexpected behaviour when moving your application from development to the productive environment. The following measures reduce dependency of your code on php.ini settings. short_open_tag Always use the long PHP tags: <? asp_tags Do not use ASP like tags: <% echo "hello world"; %> gpc_magic_quotes I recommend that you include code in a global include file which is run before any $_GET or $_POST parameter or $_COOKIE is read. register_globals Never rely on this option beeing set. File uploads: The maximum size of an uploaded file is determined by the following parameters: Have one single configuration file You should define all configuration parameters of your application in a single (include) file. Generate code 1. <?

How to Only Retrieve Posts With Custom Fields | Weblog Tools Col One question I come across a lot regarding custom fields is how to only retrieve posts based on a custom field. For example, if a post has a custom field of “MyData”, someone might want to only retrieve that particular post. The WordPress Codex has a technique for retrieving posts based on custom fields, which consists of writing your own query and going through the results. The technique in the Codex is good, but I’ve found a re-usable way one can retrieve only posts with certain custom fields. The technique I use makes use of two custom functions placed in a theme’s “functions.php” and a custom WordPress Loop. Let’s get started — The “functions.php” file First, let’s place the two custom functions in the “functions.php” file. Here are the two functions below: The function “get_custom_field_posts_join” makes use of an advanced WordPress filter called “posts_join“. The function “get_custom_field_posts_group” makes use of another advanced WordPress filter called “posts_group“. <? <? Conclusion
