  1. w3-sidenav accordions issue

    Hi, I'm trying to setup a sidenav with multiple accordion dropdowns. The first one seems to work fine but the rest just reopen the first in the list. Anyone any idea what I'm doing wrong? It may well be blatantly obvious as I'm no expert! Thanks, Dave. The code I'm using (css) is: ____________________________________________________________________________________ <nav class="w3-sidenav w3-light-grey w3-card-2" style="width:140px;"> <a href="index.php">Home</a> <div class="w3-accordion"> <a onclick="myAccFunc()" href="#">First group<i class="fa fa-caret-down"></i></a> <div id="demoAcc" class="w3-accordion-content w3-white w3-card-4"> <a href="one.php">one</a> <a href="two.php">two</a> <a href="three.php">three</a> </div> </div> <div class="w3-accordion"> <a onclick="myAccFunc()" href="#">First group<i class="fa fa-caret-down"></i></a> <div id="demoAcc" class="w3-accordion-content w3-white w3-card-4"> <a href="four.php">four</a> <a href="five.php">five</a> <a href="six.php">six</a> </div> </div> <div class="w3-accordion"> <a onclick="myAccFunc()" href="#">Second group<i class="fa fa-caret-down"></i></a> <div id="demoAcc" class="w3-accordion-content w3-white w3-card-4"> <a href="four.php">four</a> <a href="five.php">five</a> <a href="six.php">six</a> </div> </div> <div class="w3-accordion"> <a onclick="myAccFunc()" href="#">Third group<i class="fa fa-caret-down"></i></a> <div id="demoAcc" class="w3-accordion-content w3-white w3-card-4"> <a href="seven.php">seven</a> <a href="eight.php">eight</a> <a href="nine.php">nine</a> </div> </div> <a href="https://twitter.com/my_page" target="_blank"><img src="/img/twitter.gif" width="100px"></a> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/my_page/" target="_blank"><img src="/img/facebook.gif" width="100px"></a> </nav> ____________________________________________________________________________________
  2. can not INSERT INTO getting a error.

    Hello, i am having issues adding info to a database i have a html from where a user should fill in charname and select ###### then press submit. if i do this i get the error ERROR:could not able to execute INSERT INTO character(charname, ######, xp, gold, accdate) VALUES(jay, male, 0, 100000, now()).You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'character(charname, ######, xp, gold, accdate) VALUES(jay, male, 0, 100000, now())' at line 1 <?php include_once 'db_connect.php'; include_once 'psl-config.php'; $error_msg = ""; $now = time(); // check connection if($mysqli === false){ die("ERROR: Could not connect. " . mysqli_connect_error()); } // Escape user inputs for security $charname = mysqli_real_escape_string($mysqli, $_POST['charname']); $###### = mysqli_real_escape_string($mysqli, $_POST['######']); //attempt inser quesry execution $sql = "INSERT INTO character (charname, ######, gold, xp, accdate) VALUES ($charname, $######, 100000, 0, now())"; if(mysqli_query($mysqli, $sql)){ echo "Records added successfully."; } else{ echo " ERROR:could not able to execute $sql." .mysqli_error($mysqli); } // close connection mysqli_close($mysqli); ?> Table CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `character` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `charname` varchar(30) NOT NULL, `######` tinyint(4) NOT NULL, `gold` int(11) NOT NULL, `xp` int(11) NOT NULL, `accdate` timestamp NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`id`)) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT=1 ; I was wondering if some one could explain me what i do wrong, and or have some tips how to make this better. the idea is to add a check to see in the "charname" is already used. and some other stuff. but first i like to see the info end up in my DB Thanks
  3. Image Hover Rollover

    Hi Forgive me if this is answered on here. I cant find anything, but that's probably because I don't know the proper terminology to search for. If I explain what I want to do, perhaps a kindly sole might guide me in the right direction. I want to use a (single) picture of me and some buddies. I would like to have the user hover over each person, and have text information displayed while the mouse is within a defined area of the picture. I think I remember, during the stone age, Front page allowed the area to be selected with a mouse. I'm using notepad++ now, so like the wife says "I'm completely without a clue". Many thanks AJ
  4. Hi good people of w3, I'd been using the tutorials on this site a lot in an attempt to get the email enquiry form working for the website I've been putting together for the place I'm currently employed at. This isn't exactly my forte, I'm pretty decent when it comes to html but php is an animal I'm only just starting to become familiar with.I have an issue currently where particular parts of the form are required to be filled in, and I can successfully generate errors when this does not occur. However, the errors do not actually stop the email from being sent and hence we end up with incomplete enquiries on the other side when the form is not correctly filled in.If anyone could provide some advice as to a means to make the errors stop the email from being sent, that would be much appreciated. The relevant code is below. <?php// define variables and set to empty values$nameErr = $emailErr = $partErr = $phoneErr = "";$name = $email = $part = $comments = $model = $brand = $phone = $contact_method = $product = $breakdown = "";if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") { if (empty($_POST["name"])) { $nameErr = "Name is required"; } else { $name = test_input($_POST["name"]); // check if name only contains letters and whitespace if (!preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z ]*$/",$name)) { $nameErr = "Only letters and white space allowed"; } } if (empty($_POST["email"])) { $emailErr = "Email is required"; } else { $email = test_input($_POST["email"]); // check if e-mail address is well-formed if (!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) { $emailErr = "Invalid email format"; } } if (empty($_POST["phone"])) { $contact_methodErr = "Phone number is required"; } else { $phone = test_input($_POST["phone"]); } $contact_method = test_input($_POST["contact_method"]); $brand = test_input($_POST["brand"]); $product = test_input($_POST["product"]); $model = test_input($_POST["model"]); $breakdown = test_input($_POST["breakdown"]); if (empty($_POST["part"])) { $partErr = "Part number or description is required"; } else { $part = test_input($_POST["part"]); } $comments = test_input($_POST["comments"]); } function test_input($data) { $data = trim($data); $data = stripslashes($data); $data = htmlspecialchars($data); return $data;}// Function to validate against any email injection attemptsfunction IsInjected($str){ $injections = array('(n+)', '(r+)', '(t+)', '(%0A+)', '(%0D+)', '(%08+)', '(%09+)' ); $inject = join('|', $injections); $inject = "/$inject/i"; if(preg_match($inject,$str)) { return true; } else { return false; }} //Validate firstif(IsInjected($customer_email)){ echo "Bad email value!"; exit;} $email_from = 'sales@speedyspares.com';//<== update the email address $email_subject = "Online Enquiry"; $email_body = '<html><body>'; $email_body .= '<table rules="all" style="border-color: #666;" cellpadding="10">'; $email_body .= "<tr style='background: #eee;'><td><strong>Name:</strong> </td><td>" . $name = $_POST["name"] .

  6. I didn't know where to add my new topic, but because my problem involves coding in HTML. I thought this might be the right place. So.. I'm new to web design/coding and i'm coming to you guys for help because the company i work for has now got a new website which uses Umbraco CMS to add and edit content. What they neglected to tell us was that we'd need to know HTML to edit certain data. I have added the HTML coding below for the Table of specs for one of the products we sell at my work, but my problem is getting the color_boxes to align centrally with all the rest of the data. (see image attached of 'The Table as viewed on the webpage'). HTML: <table border="0" class="comm_table" align="center"><tbody><tr><th colspan="2" width="129">Size/ref/code</th><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">W½</th><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">W1</th><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">W2</th><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">W3</th></tr><tr><th colspan="2" width="129">Colour</th><th><div class="color_box"><span class="color" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #ffffff;">color</span></div></th><th><div class="color_box" style="text-align: center;"><span class="color" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #99CC00;">color</span></div></th><th><div class="color_box"><span class="color" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #D00000; align: center;"> color</span></div></th><th><div class="color_box"><span class="color" align="center" style="background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% #333399;">color</span></div></th></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" rowspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Height of Walker (cm)</th><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">STD Wheels</th><td>37-46</td><td>41-55</td><td>48-64</td><td>59-78</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" style="text-align: center;">Activity Wheels</th><td>41.50</td><td>45-60</td><td>52-68</td><td>63-82</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Hand-grip width (cm) </th><td>34</td><td>34</td><td>34</td><td>38</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Frame width (cm) </th><td>58-60</td><td>58-60</td><td>60-62</td><td>62-64</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Frame Length (cm) </th><td>52-59</td><td>56-62</td><td>69-83</td><td>77-89</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">User Height (cm) </th><td>up to 95</td><td>91-122</td><td>107-137</td><td>129-152</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Max User Weight (kg </th><td>27</td><td>27</td><td>39</td><td>60</td></tr><tr><th class="table_th1" colspan="2" style="text-align: center;">Frame Weight (kg) </th><td>3</td><td>3.3</td><td>3.85</td><td>4.85</td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p style="text-align: left;">*All dimensions are based on four wheeled walkers.

This will need tidying up a lot, after i have tried so many times to edit the coding to do what i want it to. But i had no success.. I have also attached a screen grab of the HTML coding we are looking at (as edited in Umbraco CMS): I have also included two more screen grabs of the Table as viewed in Umbraco CMS & the Table as viewed on the webpage if this is of any help. The Table as viewed in Umbraco CMS: The Table as viewed on the webpage: As you can see above the colour boxes are not aligned central to the rest of the data input in the table. i would appreciate someone to help me understand the correct way of coding. As i am an ultra newbie and have taken it upon myself to learn HTML, anyone who might offer any course in HTML coding, please get in touch via PM. Thanks, Reb
