  1. Hi Larry, I hadn't edited my post. That editing comment was from kamaboko. I received in email his original post. That is what I was replying to. I'll put it here for you. This is the only time I'll copy/paste in a forum. [ START ] rdburbridgesr, kamaboko has just posted a new topic entitled "Chapter 12. Do Not Understand Login Process" in forum "PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide (4th Edition)". ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, I've been at this for some time now, and cannot seem to draw a connection as to ho
  2. By way of example of that tip: <?php include ('foo.bar'); if ($x == $something) { let's do something if this is true; } else { let's do some else instead; } ?> This looks much cleaner and easier to read especially when you have over 100 lines of this type of coding. I've seen it look like this before. <?php include ('foo.bar'); if ($x == $something) { let's do something if this is true; } else { let's do some else instead; } ?> Now that is to me harder to read and follow, don't you agree. Have a prosporous day.
  3. Think of the login.php as a container or box. Inside that box at the bottom is an include statement for the login_page.inc.php. At the top of the login.php is an include for the login_functions.inc.php page. Entering login.php loads that and everything else inside that box. Because of the beauty of this, it's now all available for use. Now that we have that, you'll notice that the < forms > action tag, reloads the page on submitting. Again, at the top, you'll see it going through the page top to bottom, left to right. This time the $_POST is true and because of that check, the fu
  4. ################################## I'm sorry, I should have mentioned. That is from the function.js file and also I used my ftp program to get the url of the pictures and it comes back as ftp://ftp.rdburbridge.org/uploads/richard-01.jpg My directory structure starts at public_html. If I go one above that to keep things private as you suggest, then the url completely changes to what I've shown above. Also if I put that url in my browser, of course it will give a popup asking for username/password for the ftp abilities. So I've put the uploads directory in my public_html folder as no
  5. Nothing worked, so here's what I came up with and this does work for the most part. A rewrite (copy paste put together actually): I'm not able to get the windows to adjust because I don't fully understand javascript. So I'm off to the bookstore to get a copy of your javascript manual. ################################################# function popup(mylink, windowname) { if (!window.focus)return true; var href; if (typeof(mylink) == 'string') href=mylink; else href=mylink.href; david=window.open(href, 'windowname', 'width=500, height=500, left=400, top=150,'); if (window
  6. It looks strange, but the isset line towards the top - the $GET I already replaced with $_GET and that didn't do anything. I hadn't thought of echoing those lines out to screen, I'll try that and let you know. Just as a side note, in Chapter 18 I had to change the name over from require MYSQL to get it to work. I added a 1 and it worked fine. MYSQL1.
  7. Absolutely, thank you sir images.php: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml"xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> <title>Images</title> <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="js/function.js"></script> </head> <body> <p>Click on an image to view it in a separate window.</p> <ul> <?php # Script 11.4
  8. This is becoming very confusing. Now I have a pop up with the correct dimensions matching the images dimensions, however not even the unavilable.png file shows. Using the properties on what I am seeing in the pop up, first the background colour is all black with the words: The image "http://rdburbridge.org/show_image.php?image=unavailable.png"cannot be displayed because it contains errors. Before clicking the image names to get the pop up, those images do show in the listing properly. Just when I click on each one, the popup adjusts for each images dimensions with this error here:
  9. Hi Larry, From the View Source using Firefox, it only shows the image name, no path is showing.
  10. Everything with one exception is working fine in showing the images. When I click on any of the images, it will only show the unavailable image. I've renamed the unvailable.png to the extension of jpg. It shows the unavailable.jpg but nothing else. Clicking on tree.jpg shows unavailable.jpg - looking at the page it says tree.jpg and the source code shows tree.jpg. Any thoughts?
  11. So far so good until now. In chapter 12, script 12.7 the following exists and runs fine, but I just don't understand it. In retrieving records and printing them inside the while loop: print "<p><h3>{ From what I have seen thus far, this looks strange and don't understand why the use of the curly and not the parenthesis. Can you please help me understand why replacing the curly with the parin does not work or rather why the curly is needed here? Thank you and your books are awesome. I'm finally getting a grasp on PHP and in so doing is actually helping me underst
