  1. I believe I found an error in the digital online copy. It is in Chapter 2 under "Handling an HTML Form". Paragraph 3 reads: PHP is case-sensitive when it comes to variable names, so $_REQUEST[‘city’] will work, but $_REQUEST[‘city’] and $_REQUEST[‘city’] will have no value. I'm not seeing any difference in the three variable names. I believe this sentence needs to be fixed.
  2. Hello, I want a form that create a "Feuille de jour" based on dropdownlist from other models. In fact, I have 4 tables that are linked by id : the table "Feuille de jour" have the id from the tables "poste FDJ", "categorie FDJ" and "personnel". When I create a "Feuille de jour", I want to be able to select (in a dropdown list) the name of a "poste FDJ", a "categorie FDJ" and a "personnel" and when I submit the form, it save the id of each name. I know it's possible to save multiple model in one form, I supposed that I can start on this but it doesn't work. Can someone help me
  3. Hi All, This obviously is a trivial question. But I'm spending more time than needed to figure this out.So I seek help here. Whenever I submit a quickform the data is persisted on the fields upon reload. How to make the form non sticky? Cheers, Miraj
  4. I am building a site from the info in this book. And the post I am writing as you read this has a toolbar at the top that allows me to add bold to text, and other cool options. Where could I get a toolbar like this for my website, so I can add it to form fields.? The main thing I am looking for is adding paragraphs when people type 2 carriage returns on their keyboard. So that the text area form field behaves like as if you are typing in a word processing document. Adding bold to text, italics, and underline would be great too, but as a beginner I can accept if the paragraphs is all I can
  5. We have been using the following script (based on the book script) to deliver a booking form very successfully for some time. However, just recently occasionally a customer submits a form that is not delivered, despite them coming to the "thank you" confirmation. We do not receive the form, does not go to spam, etc. Despite repeated attempts, these customers cannot send the form successfully, while we receive many other forms without problems. Is there anything in the code that would allow the customer to get through to the "confirmation" part while the "send" is not executed successfully?
  6. I want to create a contact form that has an email field where the user can't enter any white space in the field, for example: test@ex ample.com I am using a spam scrubbing function taught to us in the book to clean user inputs. I am using my variable like so. $email = strip_tags($scrubbed['email']); how can I add something like this $email = preg_replace('/\s+/', '', $email); to the existing $email = strip_tags($scrubbed['email']); I tried $email = (preg_replace('/\s+/', '', $email)(strip_tags($scrubbed['email']))); and all sorts of variations to that. it doesn't work.
  7. Hey, I am currently reading the book, and have made my own register form and php script. There is no problems with the database connection, but it just will not insert information into the database. The MySQL database is named 'test' and the table 'users'. The table has user_id, first_name, last_name, email, pass and registration_date columns. here is the registration form: <!doctype html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Untitled Document</title> </head> <body><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css"> <fo
  8. I am working with the "secure" version of contact form script 12.1 described in "Chapter 12 - Security Methods" (pg. 365) but would like to modify this so that rather than simply printing a thank you message, the user is redirected to a thank you page. I have tried replacing the given script: // Minimal form validation: if (!empty($scrubbed['email'])) { // Create the body: $body = "Name: {$scrubbed['name']}\n\nComments: {$scrubbed['comments']}"; $body = wordwrap($body, 70); // Send the email: mail('XXX@XXX', 'Contact Form Submission',
  9. Hi. First off, this is in regards to exercise dealing with using a foreach loop instead of implode(). I was having trouble with it, and of course looked up what was posted here already, but I want to do more. By the I mean I wanted to validate that the form data was not empty, had no numbers, and had a minimum of five words that will of course be alphabetized(though I'd rather being doing some analysis with it for simple patterns like the avg number of characters by word, number of vowels, number of constants, but let me just be simple about it for now). Here's the code(just a note, to gi
  10. I'm trying to build an online tool checkout application, so I'm working with script 10.5 to pull (tool names) from a database to populate a table. I need to be able to select multiple tools (using checkboxes), and then submit that form to a shopping cart. I've been able to add a checkbox to each result, but is this the correct way to give each checkbox the name associated with it? // Fetch and print all the records.... $bg = '#eeeeee'; while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array($r, MYSQLI_ASSOC)) { $bg = ($bg=='#eeeeee' ? '#ffffff' : '#eeeeee'); echo '<tr bgcolor="' . $bg . '"> <td align=
  11. On my registration page, I would like to allow my clients to select from two different options as roles they can have when they register for the website. The first role is "member", the second is "manager". I can't find any resources on how the syntax should work with the create_form_input tag to allow the user to select one of those two options and store it in the database under the "type" field. Please help! Jim
  12. Hi all, I've created a search page on my website with pagination from the book. If a search is entered with an apostrophe, the first time the search page (and sticky form value) is loaded, it looks fine, but as you click on each of the page links, the apostrophe is escaped again, adding slashes into the form value and the url: Initial search of Mother's Day: http://aqualee.com/n...=Mother%27s+Day After clicking back & forth on the previous/next page links a couple times: http://aqualee.com/new/search.php?keyword=Mother\\\\\\\'s%20Day&s=6&p=2 My best guess is that
  13. First off, what a well written technical book! Thanks Larry. I'm working on a project that currently uses JavaScript validation. The page will have PHP functionality later, but after reading chapter 6's validation examples, I got to thinking . . . Can I have slicker AJAX style same page validation using PHP? This would put the error messages in the same page after form field completion but before submission. I saw an example elsewhere that essentially points the action to the same page, but it used a lot of "include" scripting. The validation scripting in the book is so simple, yet
