Dear Professional PHP Coders,

 

I really need your help here.

I am designing a form for registration (Please find the codes below).

 

There are two errors I want corrected on this form.

 

1. PostBack data on controls.

If a user submits a form, and there are errors on the submitted data, php should postback the user's submitted data on the controls. Instead of clearing them (i.e., setting the value to empty).

 

2. Display an array of all errors during form submission.

Here, if a user has failed to provide necessary data on a selected controls, php should create an array of all controls wherein there are incorrect data, and php should echo the array of such incorrect errors below the form.

(pls find the code below).

 

I have tried something, but php is not echoing the assumed errors. No reporting at all.

Please kindly help me.

 

<?php
    //Connect to the database through our include
    include_once "/dat/connString_local.php";

//include the php file that checks whether a user is logged in or not
include_once("toplinks_for_join_form.php");


//load the captcha code from the database
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT id, captchacode, status FROM captcha");
while ($result = mysql_fetch_array($sql))
{
$id = $result['id'];
$captchacode_from_dbase = $result['captchacode'];
}

//    echo $captchacode_from_dbase;

// Set error message as blank upon arrival to page
$errorMsg = array();
// First we check to see if the form has been submitted

if (isset($_POST['username'])){

    // Filter the posted variables
  // GET USER IP ADDRESS AND LOCATION DATA
    $ip = preg_replace('#[^0-9.]#', '', getenv('REMOTE_ADDR'));
    $address1 = str_replace("[^A-Z a-z0-9]", "", $_POST['address1']);
    $address2 = str_replace("[^A-Z a-z0-9]", "", $_POST['address2']);
    $address = $address1 .", ". $address2 ." "; //CONCATENATE ADDRESS FIELDS INTO ONE VARIABLE
    $country = str_replace("[^A-Z a-z0-9]", "", $_POST['country']); // filter everything but spaces, numbers, and letters

//find the gender
    if(($_POST['gender'])=="male"){
    $gender = "m";} else {$gender = "f"; }
