  1. Hello, I have studied the method presented in chapter 10 for viewing, editing, and deleting users. However, I am a bit concerned about when a user clicks the link to edit or delete, the user ID is passed via the URL to another page. Ex here: [from view_users.php] <td align="left"><a href="edit_user.php?z=' . $id . '">Edit</a></td> <td align="left"><a href="delete_user.php?z=' .$id . '">Delete</a></td> I have found that I can simply change that ID value and perform an edit or delete on another user. This is a concern especially
  2. HI all, I am in chapter six at the end when we are building the FOR loop. I am having a problem with netbeans rendering the php in the html. Is anyone else having this problem. I have tried the following, I have restarted Netbeans. I have commented out the section and retyped it. I have copied another php section from handle_reg.php and it does not render either. I have cut out the php script, saved, restarted netbeans, and retyped the script. I have gone character by character comparing syntax with the book, everything is as the book has it. here is the code I am writing. <p&g
  3. Hello, I have been looking through the posts and the two books - Effortless E-Commerce and PHP and MySql for Dynamic Websites but have not found any information on limiting the number of characters that a user can type into a text area or a counter that shows the user how many characters they have typed so far. Can this be done in PHP or is this just a javascipt thing? Marie
  4. Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding PHP and JavaScript. 1) What I would like to know is once I do a SELECT COUNT Query I want to then do a For-Loop to out put the same number of input boxes but with a PHP variable as the value so that JavaScript could pick that value up, Is that possible to be done, I mean can JavaScript/JQuery read PHP variables. They will be Hidden Input boxes as well. PHP 6 MySQL 5.2 HTML5 CSS3 Chrome / IE 8
  5. Hello, I have been attempting a "Welcome Back" type message using a session variable in order to give the user the idea that they have actually logged in. I also understand that his is done with cookies. However, when I put the "user_id" session variable code on my page, I get the registrant's user id so that makes me think I am using the right code, but that is not what I want the user or the world to see. When I use the same code and insert "username", I don't get the registrant's username I get MY actually username for the database. I am basing my test website on the Knowle
  6. My registration form will not accept any name with a space, hyphen or apostrophe, such as O'Meara or Mary-Lou. The form tells me to "Please enter your first name or last name or username - whichever applies. When I take the space, hyphen, or apostrophe out then the form will submit. I am using the code from the Knowledge is Power sight.<?php // Check for a form submission: if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST') { // Check for a first name: if (preg_match ('/^[A-Z \'.-]{2,20}$/i', $_POST['first_name'])) { $fn = mysqli_real_escape_string ($connect, $_POST['first_name
  7. Hello, It seems when I try to add some space between the form field and any visible wording, I lose the form's "stickiness" and also the hints to tell people to fill out a certain field, if it has been done incorrectly. I would like my forms to look nice but can't seem to override this in CSS or in the php code. Marie.
  8. An error occurred during a connection to www.mydomain.co.uk SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long) I am stuck on chapter 6. After signing into paypal sandbox, using the buyer account I created & then clicking the 'go back to my site button,' I got the following error above. How do I solve this please?
  9. I've been testing code against the RCs of PHP 5.4 for about a month and realised that the official stable version was released in the last 24 hours. Liking it a lot: especially the short array syntax, built in server and traits. Nice to see register globals and magic quotes gone too. Can't believe how tedious writing array in 5.3 has already become. Anyway, I thought I'd just post this up just in case anyone had missed it: http://php.net/releases/5_4_0.php
  10. I am having trouble getting my scripts to work when it coes to sessions without cookies. I have amended the login.php script as per the book and then amended the remaining scripts header.html, loggedin.php and logout.php as described in the book but find when entering a valid email address and password I am returned straight to the index.php page. Please can you assist me in understanding what I am doing wrong, I have been trying to work through it and resolve it my self for the last 2 days. I have MySQL Server 5.5, php 5.3.6 and Windows 7 Home 64bit running on my own computer using the loc
  11. Hey Guys, I learned everything I know from Larry's books, but this question is not directly from any of his books. But I really need some help! I've set up a script to listen for IPN from paypal. I see the IPN activity in my paypal IPN history. The listener script that I set up is supposed to change one row in my database (I'm adding a user_meta value to a wordpress user to flag him as a premium user). The database update is not happening. When I point my browser to the page where the ipn script is hosted, this is the error message I see: web browser to the page on which my
  12. I developed on my Windows XP machine with a Wamp server and developed in Flash Builder 4. While I was developing and using data services - when prompted by Flash Builder I let it install the Zend Framework. Now I need to deploy a Flex 4 web application developed in Flash Builder 4 on an Ubuntu Linux production server which has MySQL and php already installed. Am I supposed to install Zend on the Linux server? The Adobe Help documentation is confusing... According to: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flashbuilder/using/WSe4e4b720da9dedb5-13a250c812e8e9b5533-7ff9.html : "(PHP server proje
  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
  14. No matter what I do the length of my text area does not change. I can change the depth. I am testing my site on three different browsers and it comes out with either a scroll bar or a tab that the user can pull to a different length. I would like a set box so that the user can see what they type and know how much space they have to use. My text areas are about 1-1/2" wide and I would like it to be 4" wide. I do not see any CSS that would be overriding it. This is the code from the Knowledge is Power web site in the forms_function.inc.php. I have changed the depth to 2 columns. I have tried
