  1. I don't have the option to change my profile photo on this platform.  Is there an activity-level that is required before that functionality can become enabled on my account?

    FYI...I tried in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

    Thank You!


  2. I took the CSS course about 5 weeks ago, and I replicated all of the code while watching the videos, just like you're doing.  Just keep doing what you are doing and it will all work out.  I don't recall that there was any code which wasn't coded out in the videos.

  3. I had a difficult time solving this bug, and finally solved it.  I'm posting it here to help others who might be struggling with the same situation. 

    Code Source:

    This code is from the Simple PHP Login System, Lesson 17 & 18.  

    My Setup:

    • Machine: Windows 10
    • WAMP
    • PHP version: 7.4.9
    • Code Editor: VS Code

    Here is my error notice:

    Notice: Only variables should be passed by reference in C:\wamp64\www\phplogin-parts17-18-projectfiles\register.php on line 144

    I got that error message when I tried to register a member.

    The problem lies in LINE 144



     You need to create a new variable that represents...
          md5($input['pass'. $config['salt'])
     Let's call that variable $salty....
          $salty = md5($input['pass'. $config['salt']);
    ...and then insert that new variable $salty into ... $stmt->bind_param(x, x, x, x, $salty);
    The code should look like this:
         if ($stmt = $mysqli->prepare("INSERT members (username, email, typepasswordVALUES (?,?,?,?)"))
             $salty = md5($input['pass'. $config['salt']);
             $stmt->bind_param("ssss"$input['user'], $input['email'], $input['type'], $salty);


    Hope that helps!
