Weird MySQL Problem

    Hello,

    I’ve just been working on a component, that saves stuff to the database. That is working correctly, but it only saves numbers. When there is text it converts that to 0.

    This is the code I use to create the database tables:

    // add charset & collate like wp core
    $charset_collate = '';

    if ( version_compare(mysql_get_server_info(), '4.1.0', '>=') ) {
    if ( ! empty($wpdb->charset) )
    $charset_collate = "DEFAULT CHARACTER SET $wpdb->charset";
    if ( ! empty($wpdb->collate) )
    $charset_collate .= " COLLATE $wpdb->collate";
    }

    $sql[] = "CREATE TABLE {$bp->skools->table_name_courses} (
    id BIGINT(20) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
    group_id BIGINT(20) NOT NULL,
    course_name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    course_desc LONGTEXT NOT NULL,
    course_price BIGINT(20) NOT NULL,
    course_group VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY id (id)
    ) {$charset_collate};";

    And this is the code I use to save to the database:

    function skools_save_course( $groupid, $name, $desc, $price, $group )
    {
    $course = new DB_skool_courses;
    $course->group_id = $groupid;
    $course->course_name = $name;
    $course->course_desc = $desc;
    $course->course_price = $price;
    $course->course_group = $group;
    if( $course->save() )
    return true;
    else
    return false;
    }

    I basically started from the skeleton component and adjusted it a bit. This is the bit from the database class:

    function save()
    {
    global $wpdb, $bp;

    $this->group_id = apply_filters( 'courses_data_group_id_before_save', $this->group_id, $this->id );
    $this->course_name = apply_filters( 'courses_data_course_name_before_save', $this->course_name, $this->id );
    $this->course_desc = apply_filters( 'courses_data_course_desc_before_save', $this->course_desc, $this->id );
    $this->course_price = apply_filters( 'courses_data_course_price_before_save', $this->course_price, $this->id );
    $this->course_group = apply_filters( 'courses_data_course_group_before_save', $this->course_group, $this->id );

    /* Call a before save action here */
    do_action( 'courses_data_before_save', $this );

    if ( $this->id ) {
    // Update
    $result = $wpdb->query( $wpdb->prepare(
    "UPDATE {$bp->skools->table_name_courses} SET
    group_id = %d,
    course_name = %d,
    course_desc = %d,
    course_price = %d,
    course_group = %d
    WHERE id = %d",
    $this->group_id,
    $this->course_name,
    $this->course_desc,
    $this->course_price,
    $this->course_group,
    $this->id
    ) );
    } else {
    // Save
    $result = $wpdb->query( $wpdb->prepare(
    "INSERT INTO {$bp->skools->table_name_courses} (
    group_id,
    course_name,
    course_desc,
    course_price,
    course_group
    ) VALUES (
    %d, %d, %d, %d, %d
    )",
    $this->group_id,
    $this->course_name,
    $this->course_desc,
    $this->course_price,
    $this->course_group
    ) );
    }

    if ( !$result )
    return false;

    if ( !$this->id ) {
    $this->id = $wpdb->insert_id;
    }

    /* Add an after save action here */
    do_action( 'courses_data_after_save', $this );

    return $result;
    }

    I’m using the latest SVN of both BP and WPMU.

    I could really need some help figuring out why it won’t let me save text to the database.

    Cheers,

    Boris
