Showing results for tags '$_GET'.
NOTE: The rooster has come home to rest. BACKGROUND: My recent ventures in SESSION variables and AJAX calls has opened up whole new worlds in the life of this unaspiring, inspired web developer. So, far I have used each to satisfy different, but similar tasks -- namely, fill differently the same section of my podcast host page with data from the same data base using both external ($_GET and $_SESSION variables) and internal $.ajax( ) triggers. It is now time to combine the results of these two procedures in the achievement of a third task. At the top of my podcast host page is a PHP if-statement that checks for the receipt of two $_GET variables. It cares not about the source of these variables and performs the same way whether they are received from an external HTTP request using a fully specified URL or my newly acquired knowledge of the href='?..." query specification. Both cause the page load. Neither method cares whether the page has already been loaded or not. QUESTION: How do I suppress the reload function of a HTTP request without sacrificing the other features commonly associated with HTTP requests. BY WAY OF ILLUSTRATION: In the event that more clarity is required. 1) EXTERNAL REQUEST: Click on the following link: http://www.grammarcaptive.com/podcast_dev_copy.php?hash=30a6836a3f7c5fc57751a61098e5c221&podcast_no=21 View the center section of the page that opens. The contents of this section is inserted using a PHP script located at the top of the opened page. The difference between a normal loading and what you observe when you click the above link can be easily seen by by omitting the query string -- namely, http://www.grammarcaptive.com/podcast_dev_copy.php. 2) INTERNAL REQUEST: What I would like to do is open similarly generated content using different data, from the same page. To observe this please do the following: Click on the word Chronology in the navigation bar of the opened page. Click on the phrase Podcast Index ... Click on any of phrase that reads Discover more ... Click on the phrase Click and Listen. Look at the result and you will discover similarly formatted, but different content in the center section of the page. I would like to achieve the same without having to reload the page. Could this be achieved with an event object such as event.preventDefault() PLEASE ADVISE. Roddy
BACKGROUND: I have some PHP code that I would like to turn on and off from two different approaches: on the one hand, via an HTTP Request from a third-party domain; and on the other hand, via the href attribute of an HTML <a> tag on the same page. Under normal circumstances one might write something like case one. I am proposing cases two and three. Third Party Domain HTTP Request (CASE ONE): Podcast No. 3 <a href='www.grammarcaptive.com?hash=2348dd8we23jrkajddu&podcast_no=003' title='Podcast Overview' target='_blank'>Overview</a> Same Page HTTP Request (CASE TWO): Podcast No. 3 <a href='#podcast_003?hash=2348dd8we23jrkajddu&podcast_no=003' title='Podcast Overview' target='_blank'>Overview</a> Same Page HTTP Request (CASE THREE): Podcast No. 3 <a href='./?hash=2348dd8we23jrkajddu&podcast_no=003' title='Podcast Overview' target='_blank'>Overview</a> QUESTION ONE: If neither case two, nor three is permissible, how would you suggest to achieve the same goal. If either or both cases two or three are possible, which is preferable and why?
Hy everyone I would like to get some kind of input for a problem I have. I've got a page (A) wich calls an guestid and selects from the DB the data. Now, I wanna do a Page ( witch is a form Thing is, I need to bring the Guestid from page (a) to page ( - also need to have a new ID (ex. clientid) for the form So far I did it with $_GET['id']; in the page ( i got: $id= (isset($_GET['id']) && is_numeric($_GET['id'])) ? $_GET['id'] : 'new'; the thing is, by opening the form I loos the guestid which I need to reecall somehow. so that there will be at the end: $ID = 'new' $guestid = $guestid for any Inputs I would be more then pleased.
