Reggle, who had a blog post published in Jan 2012 and also had 0 forum posts in that month gets this code (and 2 hours of my time) dedicated to him:

Code: Select all
      // For blog posters who haven't posted on the forum this month
      $contributions_array[$row[user_login]][group_id] = 370;

      $query2 =
      'SELECT p.poster_id, u.username, u.user_id
      FROM '.POSTS_TABLE.' p, '.USERS_TABLE.' u
      WHERE u.username = "'.key($contributions_array).'"';

      $result2 = $db->sql_query_limit($query2, 10, 0, 3600);

      while ($row2 = $db->sql_fetchrow($result2))
         {$contributions_array[$row[user_login]][user_id] = $row2['user_id'];
         }


Weird that I picked 1/2012 as an example and it had that anomaly in it...

:cheers:

Not exactly. He has posts this month but there is a bug in the page code. I know what's happening, just need to figure out how to correct for it.

It's not that hard. Write a few words about something you understand well, sprinkle in a little humor or personal observation, and next thing you know you have a blog post.
