  1. I have not touched my early version of fx.php in years and now find that I cannot use PHP7. Have to stay with PHP5.6. Does everything need to be rewritten to migrate to the newer fx.php version. It seems rather daunting to me, not being much of coder. I have not found any help on the web on how to update an older fx.php version to a newer one. Thanks in advance for your help - Sam
  2. Thank you for the info. As much as I hate to go this way, I may try to convert my old CWP for fp.7 to 12. I am finding too many gotchas with WebDirect.
  3. Xochi, I am working on a Mac and with Safari, the user name and password are remembered. They are not remembered in Chrome and Firefox even though I have Remember passwords for site checked. Am I missing something?
  4. Thank you - I learn something everyday when it comes to Filemaker.
  5. Xochi Could you tell me what kind of login form you are using because I have tried my form in Safari and Chrome and neither autofills. I am using a layout from my database as the form, but the user name and password fields are global fields so no records show when a user enters it. The global fields are then set to the regular user name and password fields and re-login script is run. Thanks for your help - Sam
  6. Thanks Sky, I will give it a try. Would you have any idea as to how to create a "Remember Me" for the user name and password fields for autofill on the FM login page? Sam
  7. Thank you both. You have given me hope. I have done the above, but there does not seem to be a way in WebDirect to create a "Remember Me" for the user name and password fields for autofill. If either of you know how to do that, I would be greatly appreciative. I have done the above. One thing to watch out for is to make sure is to make sure the Web Viewer points to https. Triple8 FM hosting is secure so if http is the address in the Web Viewer it will be blank. I maybe wrong on this, but this option seems to only work if I am serving the database through my own Filem
  8. When I first saw WebDirect I thought it was a great replacement for IWP for my database needs, but the devil is in the details. 1. I wanted my users to be able to enter the database without having to go through the Filemaker WebDirect login page. Right now I have a CWP solution where the client logs in and if they have forgotten their login info it will pop-up. Not in the WebDirect login page. I tried using the WebDirect_Params.fmp12 solution which worked fine in Chrome and Firefox, but the WebDirect login page appeared again in Safari. 2. I have my database hosted with triple8 and the
  9. I am working with the FMPHP_Sample.fmp12 database and php to understand how the API for PHP works. Mostly I have gotten things to work, but for a few errors I don't understand. I have a different host for the php files then where the FM server is. I placed the API Example php files on my host and included: FileMaker.php and the FileMaker folder. I can view the list in displayRecords.php and individual records inviewRecord.php I get the following error when I try to create a new record or delete a record (the records are created and deleted): Warning: Cannot modify header i
  10. I am using the WebDirect_Params to have a user enter FM Webdirect without having to use the login screen. This is an example of a find URL: http://domain_name/fm_link.php?fmurl=fm_server&fmfile=WebDirect_Params?First_Name=Helga This works in both Chrome and Firefox where the user is taken directly to the designated layout without having to login with the Filemaker Webdirect login screen. In Safari, however, the user has to login in order to continue the script. Does anyone know why it works in Chrome and Firefox and not Safari? Thanks in advance - Sam
  11. You might want to look at this: Extending WebDirect: URL Parameters http://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/2015/01/extending-webdirect-url-parameters#comment-321715
  12. I wonder if anyone has had success with WebDirect_Params: Extending WebDirect: URL Parameters I have got the solution to work with Safari, but for some reason it is not working with Chrome or Firefox. I keep getting this error in those browsers: Warningfopen(/tmp/E52E6D36-56A2-BF48-9893-F2E27E7CCE4D.txt) [<a href='function.fopen'>function.fopen</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/website/public_html/php/fm_read.php on line 10 Unable to open file! Here is the php file it is referring to: <?php // check for required parameter, should match
  13. For anyone experiencing the same problem, I discovered that the portals did not like the custom theme I was using. I switched to another theme and the portals worked fine.
  14. I have tried all sorts of portal combinations and they are not showing up on WebDirect. Sometimes they flash on screen, but then quickly disappear. All I see is a thin line that would be on the left side of the portal. Tried in Safari and Chrome with the same results. Any ideas - Sam PS - my database is being served through a Filemaker host.
  15. I am trying to save a database as a self-contained copy where all my container (referenced) are also saved so I can then upload the files to my Filemaker Host. The database failed to save because of many issues such as this one: Record ID 1, field cases::case_done_check] Saving container data resulted in error (5): Invalid command. I removed the offending the fields from the database. Restarted Filemaker and tried to run the same save as a self-contained copy and I got the exact same error even though the offending field is no longer in the database: Record ID 1, field cases::c
