Saving the Link Shortner (Quick Post)


Aka a very silly mistake

You may remember the link shortner I wrote about in a past blog post. Well, I fixed an issue where it couldn't decide if a link was http://, https://, or just blank. Here's what I did.

Basically, had my strpos() in the wrong order. You need the haystack first, not second. That was an issue. Here's the correct code:

if(strpos($link[0][ 'actual '], 'http://') == false || strpos($link[0]['actual'], 'https://') == false){
    header( 'Location: '.$link[0]['actual']);

And then, of course, the little else statement in case it doesn't match:

    header('Location: http://'.$link[0]['actual']);

I do love PHP.
