7:44 am CST would be 13:44 UTC, and I got this for that time:

[23-Jan-2023 13:44:07 UTC] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught PDOException: SQLSTATE[22007]: 
Invalid datetime format: 1366 Incorrect integer value: '' for column
`chessvariants`.`Item`.`BoardRows` at row 1 in /home/chessvariants/public_html/index/membersubmission2.php:385
Stack trace:
#0 /home/chessvariants/public_html/index/membersubmission2.php(385): PDOStatement->execute()
#1 {main}
  thrown in /home/chessvariants/public_html/index/membersubmission2.php on line 385

Instead of using replace, I should probably use insert if the row doesn't exist and update if it does, as I have already fixed this problem for the update_row function. Since BoardRows is not even a datetime field, this is a weird message, but the underlying problem is that replace is getting an empty string instead of whatever it is expecting.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
