Arrow Know Gender of New Pets Before Naming

This is what we'll be doing (more or less):


Basically we remove the option to name the pet on the first page, so now we'll name it from the confirmation screen - since the adoptable exists now, we can know its gender!

We'll be modifying two sections in adoptview.php -
First we'll replace the contents inside if($mysidia->input->post("submit")){ ... }.
It WAS this:
PHP Code:
if($mysidia->input->post("submit")){
            
$aid $this->getField("aid")->getValue();
            
$name $this->getField("name")->getValue();
            
$eggImage $this->getField("eggImage")->getValue();
            
$image = new Image($eggImage);
            
$image->setLineBreak(TRUE);    
            
            
$document->setTitle("{$name} adopted successfully");            
            
$document->add($image);
            
$document->addLangvar("Congratulations!  You just adopted {$name}.  You can now manage {$name} on the ");
            
$document->add(new Link("myadopts""Myadopts Page."));
            
$document->add(new Comment(""));
            
$document->add(new Link("myadopts/manage/{$aid}""Click Here to Manage {$name}"));
            
$document->add(new Comment(""));
            
$document->add(new Link("myadopts/bbcode/{$aid}""Click Here to get BBCodes/HTML Codes for {$name}"));
            
$document->add(new Comment(""));
            
$document->addLangvar("Be sure and");
            
$document->add(new Link("levelup/{$aid}""feed "));
            
$document->addLangvar("{$name} with clicks so that they grow!");
            return;
        } 
We'll be changing the entire statement to:

PHP Code:
if($mysidia->input->post("submit")){
            
$aid $this->getField("aid")->getValue();
            
$name $this->getField("name")->getValue();
            
$gender_lookup $mysidia->db->select("owned_adoptables", array("gender"), "aid = '{$aid}'")->fetchColumn();
            if (
$gender_lookup == "m") { $gender "boy"$pronoun "him"; }
            if (
$gender_lookup == "f") { $gender "girl"$pronoun "her"; } 
            
$eggImage $this->getField("eggImage")->getValue();
            
$image = new Image($eggImage);
            
$image->setLineBreak(TRUE);    

            
$document->setTitle("{$name} adopted successfully!");            
            
$document->add($image);
            
$document->addLangvar("Congratulations! The {$name} you just recruited is a ");
            
$document->add(new Comment("<b>{$gender}</b>. Would you like to name {$pronoun}? <br> (Valid names may only contain letters, numbers and spaces.)"FALSE));
        
            
$nameForm = new FormBuilder("renameform""/myadopts/rename/{$aid}""post");
            
$nameForm->buildTextField("adoptname")->buildButton("Name""submit""submit");
            
$document->add($nameForm);    


            
$document->add(new Comment("Or if you'd rather wait until later, you can "FALSE));
            
$document->add(new Link("myadopts/manage/{$aid}""click here to manage your new {$name}!"TRUE));

            
$document->addLangvar("Be sure to");
            
$document->add(new Link("levelup/{$aid}""visit "));
            
$document->addLangvar("{$name} every day so that they grow!");
            return;
        } 
The last block of lines at the bottom looks like this:

PHP Code:
$adoptForm->add($adoptTable);        
        
$adoptSubtitle = new Comment("Adopt");
        
$adoptSubtitle->setHeading(3);
        
$adoptForm->add($adoptSubtitle);
        
$adoptForm->add(new Comment("Adoptable Name: "FALSE));
        
$adoptForm->add(new TextField("name"));
        
$adoptForm->add(new Comment(""));
        
$adoptForm->add(new Button("Adopt Me""submit""submit"));
        
$document->add($adoptForm); 
We're going to reduce it to just this:

PHP Code:
$adoptForm->add($adoptTable);            
        
$adoptForm->add(new Button("Recruit""submit""submit"));
        
$document->add($adoptForm); 


Let me know if there are any issues/questions.

(* Yes, it is getting rid of the BBCode link, but since that can be found from the adopt's page, anyway, I didn't see it as a big deal? Naming is important. )
