[Cartoweb-users] Problem ini file parsing and question aboutswitches

well, the problem come from the loadFromArray function (defined in 
Structhandler.php, called from ClientExportPdf.php)
this function try to convert a string like foo.1.bar into a object hierarchy 
like foo->1->bar and it doesnt like at all "->1" (in this exemple)

so I would suggest you simlpy modify the setPdfObjects function in 
ClientExportPdf.php to feed the function a modified $ini_array, where you 
would have removed the extra parameters you added with the syntax 

this way you can add as many extra parametesr you want with the 
foo.numericvalue.bar syntax without having side effect on the normal 
exportPdf code

by the way, it is perfectly normal your cExportPdf.ini is ignored, from 
cartoweb point of view, you are using the exportPdf plugin. You would have 
the same problem if you added, css, js or images, You would have to put them 
in the exportPdf folder.

I hope this help
