webpad was written quite a while ago now, and the new installations of PHP come by default with some settings which will mean that webpad doesn’t work straight away. The easiest way to get around this (on an Apache server) is to put an “.htaccess” file in your webpad installation directory which contains something like this;
php_flag register_globals on php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on
The next version of webpad will not require this, but for now it’s the easiest way around the problem.
If anyone knows of any other problems and/or fixes to problems with webpad, please email them in to me using the contact form or email here.
