Programming / Re: Someone Should Help Me With This Mysql And Vue Problem by webapi: 7:07pm On Sep 30, 2021
LarsunDesign:


Thank you sir for your reply.. This is what I was thinking, but there's no way I can store multiple items like arrays in SQL.. I tried using JSON data type, but it doesn't work for my SQL version, so I don't know which other thing to do
Use the alternative method i gave. Create a different table to store both user id and post id. So when a user tries to like a post, you first check the new table you created. If the user id and post id exist on same table then don't bother calling the post like table, just send message back to frontend. Hope this helps

Hello guys, so I'm working on a project as a self taught developer... I am making a social media application using Node js, MySQL and Vue, but I I'm stuck at one particular place.

I've built my restful API using Node js and My SQL so I could fetch the data using VUE.. now my problem is I want to create a situation where a user can like a particular post in the front end and that will send a message back to the backend that the user has already liked the post . But the problem is I don't know how to indicate in my frontend that a user has already liked a particular post..

My table in my database is like this...
User Table

Id username password
1 John Doe encrypted (1244)


Post Table

Id note author_id(foreign_key)
1 post1 notes 1


Post Likes Table

post_id user_id
1 1

Now, this was how I sent the entire post from my database to my frontend...

SELECT post.*,user.username,postlikes.user_id FROM post INNER JOIN user WHERE user.id = post author.id INNER JOIN postlikes.post_id = post.id

But I noticed that when I try sending the data, it's looks for all the post that has the id from postlikes.post_id and send it multiple times times for example.. if a postlikes row has post_id column that's equal to post.id,


it will send them in different rows and I cannot be able to check the user_id in my frontend to see if a user is already included in a particular row...

Please has anyone done something like this and how Did you solve the problem.. thanks
I will only advice on how to go about it but wont give you the code. Now on each post you can have an empty where you push the ids of every user that likes a post. So when next the user likes the post, you check the array to know if that user id already exists. If it exists, send back message to the frontend. Alternately you can create a separate table where you save both post id and user id. So when a user likes the post, you check the table to see if both user id and post id exists

Let us all clear this stuff once and for all.
It is often said that HTML and CSS are not programming languages but make up and styling languages.
My question is since they are not programing languages, 'why are they associated with programming languages'?

Are they also computer languages?

No incentive comments.
HTML is used for structural purposes on a web page, not functional ones.

Programming languages have functional purposes. HTML, as a markup language doesn’t really “do” anything in the sense that a programming language does. HTML contains no programming logic. It doesn’t have common conditional statements such as If/Else. It can’t evaluate expressions or do any math. It doesn’t handle events or carry out tasks. You can’t declare variables and you can’t write functions. It doesn’t modify or manipulate data in any way. HTML can’t take input and produce output. Think of it this way: you can’t compute the sum of 2 + 2 in HTML; that’s not what it’s for. This is because HTML is not a programming language.
Hope this settles it more

Don't store it anywhere if what you are looking for is visitors counts. Just display the counter on your frontend. Hope this helps

Which one is nairaland using to get guest online?
Well i can't tell what nairaland is using but i get mine using socket io. If you are familiar with that, you should be able to get realtime visitors count. Also do not store these info in your database. You don't want to overload your database with a temporary counter. Hope this helps

Here's wat am trying to pass to u.

I used 3 phones to access my site to see if it will give a different IP.

But, still getting the ip number no changes
Ofcourse it will give you same ip because the ip address php is getting is from your ISP and the location. Php cannot have access to your device details. Only if you are building a mobile app you can have such access. That is why websites uses ip address to block visitors based on location. You cannot block a visitor based on his/her device. So yes your php code is doing the right thing. Hope this helps

You can receive funds straight to your bank in USD. You just need your client to create an account and you give him your info. Make sure you have a domiciliary account. You can also get your payment as cash pickup if you dont have a domiciliary account

Webmasters / Re: Mobile Website Or Mobile App Which Is More Prone To Hacking by webapi: 8:07pm On Jul 19, 2021

Why do you think an app is more secured than a website

When i say app, i mean real native app/cross platform and not converted app. Now when you create an app, it communicates with the backend through an api. This apis can be secured within the app and it would take alot of cracking to get access to them. Then you are faced with the backend where these apis are made from. These apis may not have html tags on them at all so you cant even scrap anything from them. But for website? You can scrap, you can easily confirm what the website is running on, e.g wordpress. Then all you need is few troubleshooting to gain access. You can even access the admin of many CMS websites. There are alot you can play with on a website compared to an app

Programming / Re: As A Programmer How Do You Learn/understand A New Language by webapi: 12:19am On Jul 18, 2021
SALLYBERRY01:
I will be detailed, as a programmer how do you learn a new language, what method do use, for instance while watching a video to learn a programming language, do you always cram the process?, if your response IS NO, you don't cram you try to understand. I have another question after trying to understand is it normal to forget the entire process?
I will be anticipating response from programmers thank you.
As a good programmer you should first understand that every language has a basic standard but different syntax. What i mean is, if you write PHP, you will know things like print/console, variable, arrays, loops, functions etc. When you go to other languages, you will find these same thing. So first thing is, learn how to print a statement in another language like python, then how to declare a variable, to to map arrays. These syntaxes would be different but you would have understood where you are heading to before jumping into frameworks on such languages.

Not sure he is fetching anything to be honest. He is clearly on the path of learning node and express. Most likely he is using a static database object, that has a key of users which has an array of only a handful of users that he coded in.

He his obviously still learning and this is fine for now.
Hopefully that is what he's doing
Programming / Re: Please I Need Explanation Of This Express.js Code by webapi: 6:35am On Jul 10, 2021
jikins:


Not at all. The code as is sends only one response what ever the case may be. Its only if an else statement is placed inside thats when you will get multiple responses.

Look at the code again. If it finds a user with that id. It changes found to true. Then sends the response with the user data. The if statement outside the foreach won't fire because found is true. So essentially only one response is sent.

If none of the id match, the response in the foreach never fires and found is not changed from being false. So automatically, the if statement outside fires because found is false. So you see only one response fires in either case.

The only way multiple responses will fire is if more than one user have the same id. Which is very unlikely as the unique id of each user is the basis for their identification. So doing that just won't work at all for foreach, even filter will give you an array of all the user that matches that id and that's not obviously what you want to send.
Yes you are correct but nevertheless, the OP was not supposed to pull all the users from the database before iterating. I dont know what kind of database he's using but it's a wrong approach to pull every user from database before iterating. If there are 1million users, it wouldn't be nice to fetch all
