I have a script completely independent from miniBB that does its own insertions into the database through some form. What I want to do is give the user the option to select a check box in the form and have what the user submitted using this form posted to miniBB automatically.

I found this topic, which helped a bit but it's very old.

What I want to know is how miniBB does its MySQL insertions. In which file is the Insert statement written? and whether it is using triggers since MySQL has triggers now? :)

any one got an idea...

I can only promise that miniBB never will use triggers, or something which is not required for running such a simple program as forum program. So there are no triggers.

miniBB completes mySQL insertions through the function called "insertArray". Searching files for that word you will find all scripts which do that.

However for your script, you don't need such function included. Just analyze the structure of miniBB topics and posts table. It's very simple. You need to force your script just to insert all fields in those tables properly, via your own insertion mechanism, which doesn't matter in this case a lot.

Hi Paul,

thanks for the reply...will take a look at the tables structure as well as the insertArray function just to get a full picture

Hopefully I'm gonna be able to make this work properly :)

Best Wishes,

Once again: you don't have to investigate insertArray function for this. Just use your own very regular mySQL's INSERT command.

and yes insertArray investigation is not necessary...I just used own INSERT like you described.

Thanks a lot Paul
