  1. Sticky notes

    Thank you very much
  2. Sticky notes

    Hi. Im trying to make an online sticky notes system. each user will be able to subscribe to number of boards. each board will hold memos. so in case me and my friend are subscribed to the same board (we can both subscribe to different boards also regardless) and i put a memo on that board, my friend will see that memo also. So... i crated the sql database, and now when the user logged in, he is automatically see the boards he's subscribed to and the memos on that board. only thing is, i want him to be able to add memo to a board. as for now, the script takes the userid, then run sql query to check his subscribed boards and saves the boards id on an array, after that, on each board, the script loops thru the memos on the database to see which memo is connected to that board id and then display it. so im not sure how can i do the Add note thingy here, i thought about making a little form inside each of the display boards, a simple <teaxtarea> and <submit> and when user submit i run the SELF PHP page and insert a query. ONLY problem is, how can i know which of the forms did the user submitted? if there could be a way the form could hold the board id number inside of it.. is there a way to do that? im posting a pic to try to explain what i mean. **You can see the title of the board in pink, after that all notes float left and the form comes after the notes. in this example to user subscribed to 2 boards. thank you

    In case i dont want to direct to another php page but would like to use the same page, what would be the best way to handle this?
  4. cannot run query

    Hi. Im scratching my head trying to understand the following issue: i have a built login/signup system. after user will login he will redirect to profile.php where i have a session with all the info i need. i want to run a simple query: $result = $mysqli->query("SELECT boardid FROM connector WHERE userid='$id'"); but for some reason this line kills my script. my $mysqli is working fine in all other php pages... so i try moving this line top to bottom but wherever the page meets this line the script is dead. what am i doing wrong? <?php /* Displays user information and some useful messages */ session_start(); // Check if user is logged in using the session variable if ( $_SESSION['logged_in'] != 1 ) { $_SESSION['message'] = "You must log in before viewing your profile page!"; header("location: error.php"); } else { // Makes it easier to read $first_name = $_SESSION['first_name']; $last_name = $_SESSION['last_name']; $email = $_SESSION['email']; $active = $_SESSION['active']; $id = $_SESSION['id']; } ?> <!DOCTYPE html> <html > <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>Welcome <?= $first_name.' '.$last_name ?></title> <?php include 'css/css.html'; ?> </head> <body> <div class="form"> <h1>Welcome</h1> <h2><?php echo $first_name.' '.$last_name; ?></h2> <p><?= $email ?></p> <a href="logout.php"><button class="button button-block" name="logout"/>Log Out</button></a> </div> <div> <?php //THIS IS THE LINE THAT KILLS EVERYTHING. IF I PUT IT HERE NOTHING WILL HAPPEND, IF U PUT IT UP THE SCRIPT WILL DIE $result = $mysqli->query("SELECT boardid FROM connector WHERE userid='$id'"); ?> </div> <script src='http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js'></script> <script src="js/index.js"></script> </body> </html>
  5. Little advice about login page

    Hi. I wanna create a signup/login thingy. You can see it at sweiss.co.il/sfn/ . So i have the index.html with 2 forms 1 for login and 1 for signup, each has his own action going to login.php and signup.php , but i want them both leading to something like main.php only problem i dont know how to figure if the user clicked on the submit of the new user or the sumbit of the login as existent user (which obviously make main.php behave differently). Whats the best way to make it happen? Thanx very much in advance

  8. Evaluate my knowlage

    Thank you
  9. Evaluate my knowlage

    Hi. I see many web developers pages where they add knowlage percentage of the thechnologies they know (e.g you can see javascript 80%/html 90% and so on). My question is how do they evaluate the percentages ? Are there formal online tests or they just write what they think? Hope i was clear on my questions. Thanx

  11. joinning 3 tables

    Hi. i have 3 tables: orders, customer, custwish. (every table has id prim key, which match the 3 tables, meaning, if a customer has id=20, there's an order with id=20 regarding him and wishid=20 regarding him) i wanna make a query where ill get all info from these tables with the following restrictions: orderid=customerid=custwishid ; livearea(in table customer) =1, delivered(in table orders)= 'n' how can i do that with inner join? thanx!
  12. Well..this cant be right

    Hi. im almost sure im doing something terribly wrong... here goes: i have 2 tables, one for Customer (ID(primary)address,phone...etc..) and one for Order (OrderNumber(primary), order info, date of the order....etc) (both primary auto inc) both have foreign keys which point to the other tables primary key.. Now, when a new order is being made, i insert data to the Order table.... after that i need to insert data to the customer table... So... when i insert data to the order table, i cannot insert data to the foreign key column since i do not know what will be the data inside the primary key column of the customer table. so, now the primary key data in a variable, and go to the customer table and insert the data of the customer and in the foreign key i spit out what was in the variable i saved earlier, after i run the sql command line i can see the id key that have been issued so i save that in a variable. so i have to go back to the order table and insert the data in the foreign key there and NOW i have data in the 2 tables which is connected thru the foreign keys. this MUST be wrong there's no way im doing it right... right?
  13. primary and foregin key

    HI! im having a little understanding problem about keys. i have 2 tables. one with ID (primary key) and all kind of other stuff. now i have another table, e.g. adress, where i want to make a uniqe coloum connecting 1 to 1 with the ID of the main table. so what i did is connected the ID (primary key) of the first table to the ID (secondary key) of the second table. so how does that work now? because i cant insert anything to the second table since it gives me an error: #1452 - Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`logitech`.`cust_time`, CONSTRAINT `cust_time_ibfk_1` FOREIGN KEY (`order_num`) REFERENCES `customer` (`order_num`)). how can i use the second table exactly? in this situation, the data to the second table should be inserted only a few days after the data to the first table. thank you !
  14. primary and foregin key

    the idea is this, this first table get filled when customer buy product (primary key is order number which is uniqe, his id, address, name, etc.) the second table is inserted after a few days when the customer enters the site and checkbox his day and time request for when he want the package to arrive. so actually the second table doesnt get inserted at the same time the first one. ive made the first table order number a primary key and wanted to make the second table order number as secondary key so they both point to each other. if i insert null value on the second table key how will it point to the firs table?
  15. primary and foregin key

    i dont think i understand. those are 1 to 1 tables. i can enter data to the main table but how will the data be insreted to the second table if i get an error and i try to insert?
  16. Working with dates

    waow thanx very much
  17. Working with dates

    Suppose i wanna make a page where a customer enters, and he will see the days of the next week, like if im entering the page today (wednesday september 6th) i will see a table with the following week, starting from sunday september 10th to saturday september 17th. is there a way php can do such thing?
  18. syntax error maybe?

    Hi. ok ive been working for about 2 hours on 2 lines that for some reason doesnt work. i have a form with 2 inputs: order# and phone#. when user press submit i want it to search the DB. if he entered both phone# and order# the query will be other than if he entered only one of them. so actually i have 4 cases. 1: user submitted without phone# and without order# 2: user submitted with phone# but without order# 3: user submitted without phone# but with order# 4: user submitted with both. can someone help me with the syntax? ive been working on it for freaking hours and it doesnt seem to work.
  19. syntax error maybe?

    Yes thank you, realised that just now. do you think there's a better way to attack this other than all this nested if's ? btw, if isset returns true all the time do i still need it? or can i just use the !empty?
  20. syntax error maybe?

    one problem i noticed is that if i use if (isset($_GET['phonesrch'])) if (isset($_GET['order_num'])) they ALWAYS return true, even if i submit empty form. why is that?
  21. syntax error maybe?

    if (isset($_GET['submit'])){ $flag =1;//1 means both phone# and order# are entered if (!isset($_GET['order_num'])) { if (!isset($_GET['phonesrch'])) {$flag=2;} //means order# isnt set and phonesrch isnt set else{ $flag=3; }//means order# isnt set but phone# is set } else {if (!isset($_GET['phonesrch'])) {flag=4;} //means order# is set, phone# isnt } this is my code but somewhere i guess theres a syntax error
  22. edit button on php table created from sql DB

    solved it with a href thanx for your time
  23. Hi! Im making a php script which goes over an MySQL DB and present the Db as Table (its actually a db of customers where there's info of their ship address, phone, etc). so the php script fetch array and take 1 row at a time, and ofcours go thru all the elements in the DB and present it in a table. I wish i can make an EDIT button at the end of each row where the user can press it and it will move it to another (already made) edit user php script with the row Customer number. of cours i can end each line with a button but how can i make it so that after all the table has been printed out (maybe 250 rows) each button at the end of the row will lead to the edituser.php with the specific row customer number? any idea? thanks in advance
  24. edit button on php table created from sql DB

    :| still not working.. i dont understand how can i use post method and comine it with $_GET on the second script. ANYWAY, maybe A HREF is a better option but is there a way to let the user click on <a href> and send it with $order_num data? thanks very much again for your your time
