View Full Version : System error, unable to generate request form at this time

September 27th, 2008, 04:16 PM
Just updated the files from the beta version we have been working on. When not logged in, I get error: System error, unable to generate request form at this time.

When logged in, the images work fine. Any ideas?

Something to do with the captcha - line 985 in showphoto.php contains that language string..

Yep, turn captcha off for unregistered, and the images show.. hmmm

Are we talking about viewing a showphoto page when logged out?

Yes, it appears so. If Captcha is on, the logged out user cannot see the photo, and gives the error. If it is turned off, the user can see the photo fine.

I know Michael was moving the code around so quick ratings would work without captcha, but perhaps it has been put in the wrong place??

I will turn it back on, so you can check out what it is doing on my site..

This is with a straight upload with the new software package..

well this is why I am confused here I am running the latest code and see no error.

$Globals['pp_lang']['caperror'] = "System error, unable to generate request form at this time.";

Is there anything wrong with your captcha table? The reason you have that message is because we can not insert the mysql entry in the database.

if ( $User['userid'] < 1 )
if ( $Globals['usecaptcha'] == "yes" )
// Let's generate a totally random string using md5
$md5 = md5(rand(0,999));

// We don't need a 32 character long string so we trim it down to 5
$pass = substr($md5, 10, 5);

$r = ppmysql_query( "INSERT INTO {$Globals['rp_db_prefix']}captcha (id,code) VALUES (NULL,'$pass')", $link );
$newid = mysql_insert_id($link);

if ( !$newid )
diewell( $Globals['pp_lang']['caperror'] );

well, unless I need to do something else to my database to get the new release working, nothing has changed since the beta install..

How would I know if something is wrong with my captcha table?

Try clearing your captcha table of entries and lets go from there

September 28th, 2008, 02:16 PM
I have 30 entries, delete them all then?

you have like 6579 entries ;)

September 28th, 2008, 02:24 PM
Done. let's see what it did....

doesn't work.

Now your link shows nothing that you provided in the above message...

September 28th, 2008, 03:33 PM
I went ahead and turned it back off for the time being, until we figure this out.

Chuck, it has to be a new showphoto issue. I uploaded the old one and it works fine..

Interesting well I dont have an old showphoto to see so send me the old one so I can compare to chuck at photopost dot com

Now whats strange is why does the new code work on my site. I mean I just updated my site right before I posted here to you the first time to make sure there was no issue ;)

September 28th, 2008, 07:10 PM
why don't you forward your showphoto to me at skidpics at yahoo dot com?

I will upload it and see if it works.

I will forward an old showphoto to you to compare.

thanks for helping out.

Found it Chuck, using Winmerge for comparison.

Line 980 Reads:
$r = ppmysql_query( "INSERT INTO {$Globals['rp_db_prefix']}captcha (id,code) VALUES (NULL,'$pass')", $link );

and should be:

$r = ppmysql_query( "INSERT INTO {$Globals['pp_db_prefix']}captcha (id,code) VALUES (NULL,'$pass')", $link );

Might want to pass this along to Michael.. and not sure why your's is working correctly..

Mine would work because my photopost table prefix is blank to begin with.

September 28th, 2008, 09:20 PM
makes sense. Betting some more users will have this issue once everyone upgrades.. suppose it should be changed then..

thanks for the help!
