Help with PHP Query Strings

Recommended Posts

Hi geeks,

I am working on a query string but I am kinda stuck with the code, I guess this is so cos am a PHP beginner. I want my script to display members list from a table in my db and attach a hyperlink to it so that when a user clicks on the link, it takes him to the full details of that member. So far, I have been able to retrieve data from db and attached links but when I click on the link,it just adds a member ID to the query string and it does not take u to page with full member details. What I have wirtten so far is shown below:

 


<?php
   //connection.php
   /*$id = $_GET['id'];*/

   $conn = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass);
   $selDB = mysql_select_db($db);
   $sql = "select count(*) from info";
   $result = mysql_query($sql);
   $row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
   $numRows = $row[0];

        /*if (isset($_GET['id'])){
           $id = (int)$_GET['id'];
       }*/

   $sql = "select * from info";
   $result = mysql_query($sql);
   while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){ ?>
    <table>
    <td><?php echo stripslashes($row['name']). " ";?><a href="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']?>?id=<?php echo $row['id'];?>">[View Details]</a>
     </td>
     </tr>            

<?php } ?>  

 

Guys please help me out.

Seems like you could do something like this:

 

<?php
   if (isset($_GET['id']))
   {
       // add code here to process the id (make sure that the id is valid and isn't a hack attempt) and get the user's info from the database
       echo "user id is: " . $_GET['id'];
   }
   else
   {
       // display all the members with links to their detail's pages
   }
?>  

 

I actually put together two demos that cover this sort of functionality here:

 

http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/3064-basic-php-system-view-edit-add-delete-records-with-mysqli/'>http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/3064-basic-php-system-view-edit-add-delete-records-with-mysqli/

http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/1969-basic-php-system-vieweditdeleteadd-records/

 

The two are pretty similar, but the first uses MySQLi (often called MySQL Improved) which is more secure than traditional MySQL with support for prepared statements, which prevent SQL injection, a common security issue.

 

I also did a couple part screencast series called "CRUD Basics With MySQLi & PHP" that covers how I built

http://www.killersites.com/community/index.php?/topic/3064-basic-php-system-view-edit-add-delete-records-with-mysqli/ that's available on the KillerSites University (http://www.killersites.com/university - subscription required) within PHP > PHP CRUD Videos.

Hi,

Create a memberdetails.php page and then copy and paste the following code. Then modify according to your requirement.

<?php
   //connection.php
   /*$id = $_GET['id'];*/

   $conn = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass);
   $selDB = mysql_select_db($db);
   $sql = "select count(*) from info";
   $result = mysql_query($sql);
   $row = mysql_fetch_row($result);
   $numRows = $row[0];

        /*if (isset($_GET['id'])){
           $id = (int)$_GET['id'];
       }*/

   $sql = "select * from info";
   $result = mysql_query($sql);
   while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){ ?>
    <table>
    <td><?php echo stripslashes($row['name']). " ";?> <a href="memberdetails.php?id=<?php echo $row['id'];?>">[View Details]</a>
     </td>
     </tr>            
<?php } ?>  

memberdetails.php page

<?php 
//memberdetails.php page
$id=addslashes($_GET['id']);
$sql = "select * from info WHERE id='".$_GET['id']."'";
$result = mysql_query($sql);
$row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
//now display the details in this page as the details are carried in the $row variable.
?>
