hi,

i wrote a script to send some one an email when he changed his password and i have a language.php where i have every shown word listed and set so i can change the languages easily.

but i have a problem the $user_password which i have to send to the user wont show in the email because the language.inc.php is loaded before with the $user_password.

now, i need a way how to pass my variables from my language.inc.php to my forgotpasswort.php and get the mail function not only to send the text of $forgotpassword_mail but also the content of $user_password

heres the code:


### language.inc.php
$forgotpassword_mail = "Dear User, \n this is your new pw: \n $user_password  ";

### forgotpassword.php
include "inc/laguage.inc.php";

                  $connection = mysql_connect("$mysql_host","$mysql_user","$mysql_pass") or die ("Cannot connect to Mysql\n");
                  $selectdb = mysql_select_db("$mysql_db", $connection) or die ("could not select the database");
                  
                  $user_password = randomPassword(12);
                  $q = "Update $mysql_table SET user_password = md5('$user_password') WHERE user_loginname = '$user_loginname' and user_email = '$user_email' ";
                  $r = mysql_query($q);
                  echo "$forgotpassword_succsessful";
                  mail("$user_email","$forgotpassword_mail_subject","$forgotpassword_mail" );       


thanks

you can do this:

change this line:
  $forgotpassword_mail = "Dear User, \n this is your new pw: \n $user_password  ";
to:
  $forgotpassword_mail = "Dear User, \n this is your new pw: \n ----NEWPASSWORD----  ";

and this:
  mail("$user_email","$forgotpassword_mail_subject","$forgotpassword_mail" );  
with:
  $forgotpassword_mail = str_replace('----NEWPASSWORD----', $user_password, $forgotpassword_mail);
  mail("$user_email","$forgotpassword_mail_subject","$forgotpassword_mail" );  

get the idea?

str_replace is quite fast; I doubt you will notice a speed difference; even if you do this 1000 times per page you probably won't notice much difference.
