Sql error problem, please help

Recommended Posts

Am designing a simple php forum platform in dreamweaver using mysql database,but when i run the script, on redirecting to a page called view_topic.com it shows this error message---->

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 'WHERE id='4'' at line 1

 

The $topic_output normally echos out then followed by the above sql error message

I skimmed through the code and noticed this:

 

$id=$_GET['id'];$sql="SELECT * FROM forum_question WHERE `id`='".$_GET['id']."'";

 

Try changing to:

$sql="SELECT * FROM forum_question WHERE id=".$_GET['id']; // you can use $id here as well since $id is given the value of $_GET['id']. Also make sure $_GET['id'] contains a value.
