All input variables coming from surfers ($_REQUEST, $_GET, $_POST, $_COOKIE) are encoded as HTML entities. This secures SQL queries and ensures these variables don't break forms.

Use my_decode_entities(mixed var) to decode a whole array or single variables. Use my_encode_entities(mixed var to encode a whole array or single variables. Both of these functions use call-by-reference.

The following variables are predefined in PHP when someone is logs in:

  • $config - Array - The NATS configuration
  • $is_admin - Boolean - TRUE if the page you are on is an admin page
  • $smarty - Object - The Smarty object used for displaying templates
  • $loginid - Integer - The login ID of the user. When an admin overrides to another account, $loginid contains the overridden account's login ID
  • $usr_loginid - Integer - The real login ID of the user. Normally the same as $loginid; different when an admin overrides another account
  • $usr_username - String - The username of the currently logged in user
  • $usr_type - Integer - 0 for standard, 90 for account representative, 95 for entity specific admin, 99 for global admin
  • $usr_firstname - String - First name of the currently logged in use.
  • $usr_lastname - String - Last name of the currently logged in user
  • $usr_fullname - String - Full name of the currently logged in user
  • $usr_email - String - E-Mail address of the currently logged in user
  • $usr_unencoded - Boolean - Set to TRUE if this user wants unencoded linkcodes
  • $overridden - Boolean - TRUE if the admin is overriding another account

The following Smarty variables always exist in templates:

  • $script - String - name of the current script
  • $is_startpage - Boolean - TRUE if the current script is the start page for this account
  • $site_partner - Boolean - TRUE if this account belongs to a site partner
  • $fullname - String - Full name of the current account
  • $username - String - Username of the current account
  • $usr_type - Integer - Same as PHP's $usr_type

To display a template, use Finalize() as shown in the basic file structure examples. This function makes sure the correct headers and footers are added to the page.
