Parse error: syntax error

Greetings,

I am working on making the custom changes in article: https://piwigo.org/doc/doku.php?id=user … last_names

I changed the content of register.tpl and indentification.tpl in /themes/default/template directory.

I then used LocalFiles Editor to paste the content into Personal Plugin below (between */ and ?>):
- - - - - - - - - -
<?php
/*
Plugin Name: Personal Plugin
Version: 1.0
Description: Personal Plugin
Plugin URI: http://piwigo.org
Author:
Author URI:
*/

add_event_handler('init', 'id_fam');
function id_fam(){
  global $template, $user;
  $template->assign(array(    'F_KEY' => get_ephemeral_key(6)  ));

  if (isset($_POST['firstname']) and isset($_POST['lastname']))
  {
    $_POST['login']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['lastname'])));
    $_POST['username']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['lastname'])));
    $template->assign(array(      'F_LASTNAME' => $_POST['lastname'],      'F_FIRSTNAME' => $_POST['firstname']    ));
  }
}


?>
- - - - - - - - - -
When I save the file, I receive the error message:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ';', expecting ')' in /home/epnet29info/public_html/pwg/plugins/LocalFilesEditor/include/functions.inc.php(45) : eval()'d code on line 19

I tried removing the semicolon from what I think is line 19 (begjns $_POST['username']). Also adding another close parenthesis both with and without the semicolon, but I still receive similar error messages.

Any suggestions?
Ron

Re: Parse error: syntax error

Please post code as code blocks (see here) so we can see the actual code and not what appears to be arbitrarily line-wrapped.

My assumption: you copy-pasted the code already line-wrapped without knowing what it is supposed to do. The newlines before the '.ucwords(... should actually be spaces instead.

Re: Parse error: syntax error

Sorry about that. Let me try again. This is the full Personal Plugin text:

Code:

<?php
/*
Plugin Name: Personal Plugin
Version: 1.0
Description: Personal Plugin
Plugin URI: http://piwigo.org
Author:
Author URI:
*/

add_event_handler('init', 'id_fam');
function id_fam(){
  global $template, $user;
  $template->assign(array(    'F_KEY' => get_ephemeral_key(6)  ));
 
  if (isset($_POST['firstname']) and isset($_POST['lastname']))
  {
    $_POST['login']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['lastname'])));
    $_POST['username']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['lastname'])));
    $template->assign(array(      'F_LASTNAME' => $_POST['lastname'],      'F_FIRSTNAME' => $_POST['firstname']    ));
  } 
}


?>

Which is what it looks like in LocalFiles Editor as well as the documentation. And you are correct. I know what it is supposed to do in concept and can generally see the function but do not know the coding technique - not sure what all the parentheses do and why they are not paired. Willing to learn though.

Re: Parse error: syntax error

This line

Code:

    $_POST['username']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags(($_POST['lastname'])));

should be

Code:

    $_POST['username']=ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['firstname']))).' '.ucwords(strtolower(strip_tags($_POST['lastname'])));

instead (note the erroneous extra '(' parentheses in front of both $_POST).

And yes, it's already wrong in the documentation.

Re: Parse error: syntax error

Thank you erAck, "File written successfully."

I should have compared the two lines and noted the issue but was too busy looking for an errant semicolon.

Your help is most appreciated!
