Email to authors not being sent

Postby ramon » Fri Apr 16, 2004 8:26 am


I was testing the email to all authors and something´s not right.

I tried the forgot password and that one worked.. So it´s a problem with the file, not the system. But I don´t know where to start.

I noticed that the switch statement was different, but I´m not sure if that´s the problem...

Code: Select all

From admin/editor/authors.php ##
switch($op) {
   case "record":
      viewAuthorRecord((int) $id);
   case "email":
   case "send_email":
   case "delete":
      deleteAuthor((int) $id);

Code: Select all

from forgotpw.php ###
// perform selected function
switch($op) {
   case "send":

thanks to all

There is indeed a small bug in admin/editor/authors.php:

Code: Select all

        $sql .= "ORDER BY nAuthorID";
        $result = $db->query($sql);

Thanks for pointing that out.
