  2. People still use StackOverflow? That's only half a joke. Their community has always been toxic to newcomers and there's so much emphasis on correctness that anything less than perfect is unacceptable. And there's the hostility towards any form of discussion about what is right that I always mention when this subject comes up. SO is good when you're looking for a precise answer to a specific question, but it's terrible for actually asking the questions, or trying to weigh in as a new person with different answers. But I am glad they dethroned Expert Sex Change in search results.

  3. A few notes about text bounding boxes which, I hope, will help in precise placement of your text. Suppose I have the text string "The lazy fox" which I want to display using 150pt Vivaldi . My image is 4896 x 3672 and I want the text placed at the bottom right but 250 pixels from the edges of the image. $box = imagettfbbox(150,0,'c:/windows/fonts/vivaldii.ttf','The lazy fox'); gives this array of coordinates of the four corners $box = Array ( [0] => 23 [1] => 55 [2] => 871 [3] => 55 [4] => 871 [5] => -140 [6] => 23 [7] =>

  6. The code in each switch is identical so all it achieves is to ensure the calculation uses only the defined list of diameter options. Just use an array of the valid values to verify the values. You can use the same array to generate the option list <?php $diam_vals = [2,3,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26]; $results = ''; if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']=='POST') { $x = $_POST['x'] ?? 0; $y = $_POST['y'] ?? 0; $diametre = $_POST['diametre'] ?? 0; if ($x > 0 && $y > 0 && in_array($diametre, $diam_vals)) { $rayon = $diametre * 38.1;

  7. I have to agree - do a single query to get the events for the month.

  8. I can't imagine a scenario where the gobbledy-gook of a system you apparently are trying to create would be justified, or possible within your demonstrated engineering capabilities. You are talking about trying to create a system that requires a user to only use one workstation and browser to access your system. I don't know what your system would be doing, but it better be providing literally life saving services, because short of that, nobody is going to put up with the restrictions you have in mind. They are anti-user, and when you make things difficult for users, they stop using your s

  10. $this (programming pun intended) is the correct syntax, but produced a different error than the one you posted about the undefined variable. what was the error message in $this case? i'm going to guess that the database connection probably failed and there's no useful error handling in the code. while not the cause of the most immediate problem, your main code should be responsible for creating the database connection, then use dependency injection to supply that to any class that needs it. by making each class responsible for getting a specific database connection, your code is not ge

  11. That's why I laid it out the way I did with the comments - so it would be easy for you get the separate feet/inches values if you still wanted to go that way. [edit] Look more closely at my code - you require two substring_index()s to extract the inches. The inner to get the string before the final " and the outer one to get the string after the ' SET feet = substring_index(@height, '\'', 1) * 12 , inches = substring_index(substring_index(@height, '"', 1), '\'', -1)

  14. However, using the string just as far as the the first entity $valrD = json_decode(valrGet, true); echo '<pre>$valrD = ', print_r($valrD, 1), '</pre>'; gives therefore $target = 'BTC/ZAR'; foreach ($valrD['response']['entities'] as $k => $ents) { if ($ents['pair_name'] == $target) { echo "$target asking price : {$ents['ask']['price']}<br>"; break; } } outputs "BTC/ZAR asking price : 179382.54"

  15. You are missing the step to prepare the query before binding the parameters. I would strongly advise you use PDO rather than mysqli - much simpler.

  18. code that unconditionally (always) outputs the raw database statement errors for the connection, query, prepare, and execute statements, only helps hackers when they intentionally trigger errors, since these errors contain things like the database hostname/ip address, database username, if a password is being used or not, part of the sql syntax, and web server path information. the only time you should output the raw database statement errors is when learning, developing, or debugging code/query(ies) and you are viewing the site as the developer/programmer. at all other times, you should

  19. Don't worry about the IBD file. MySQL knows how to manage itself, you don't need to go second guessing it because of what you think you saw in Notepad. The question you think you're asking is whether to use an UPDATE or a DELETE+INSERT, but the question you're actually asking is how you should manage uploaded files that can be replaced. The answer to that is... well, it depends. There are two basic options: 1. Forget the previously uploaded file. You don't care about it. Take the new file and stick it wherever you want, update the database, and delete the old file. Gotta delete.

  21. Why are you even attempting to store that duration. You can get it any time you need it with a query. Rule of DB design - don't store derived data. If you really insist on storing it, why do need two queries? UPDATE attendance_records SET duration = timediff(...) WHERE ... - a single update would do the job

  24. I totally agree with @requinix regarding the two tables. However, if you are willing to compromise over the output, you could do something like this SELECT uid , name , SUM(CASE payment_type WHEN 'cash' THEN payment ELSE 0 END) as cash , SUM(CASE payment_type WHEN 'card' THEN payment ELSE 0 END) as card , cost , cost-SUM(payment) as balance FROM payment GROUP BY uid +------+------+------+------+------+---------+ | uid | name | cash | card | cost | balance | +------+------+------+------+

  25. Don't do that. Not in the actual table at least. Some people recommend this stupidity to try and avoid name collisions in their queries (such as two tables have a Label column) but such issues can be easily handled using the table.column syntax in your query rather than cluttering up column names in the table. SELECT o.Label as o_label, s.Label as s_label FROM order o INNER JOIN status s ON s.Id=o.Status One of the applications I work on was original designed using a scheme like that where every column has a table specific prefix to it and it's super annoying (long names, broken auto

  26. the convention around here is "New question, new thread". That allows for short, direct answer to short, direct questions instead of long, rambling threads where all the "Goodness" gets lost. Some comments on the above: the use of "global" breaks encapsulation, requiring the environment "outside" the function to provide the variable. It is better to pass the data as an argument to the function. What value does admin['gender'] have? Any value passed that resolves to true will cause the ternary operator to return "Mr" and everything else will return "Mrs"

Images are displayed as thumbnails, 5 in each row with 25 per page. <?php session_start(); const IMGDIR = 'images/'; const PERPAGE = 25; $page = $_GET['page'] ?? 1; $imgdir = $_GET['dir'] ?? IMGDIR; if (!isset($_SESSION['imgdir']) || $_SESSION['imgdir'] != $imgdir) { unset($_SESSION['images']); $_SESSION['imgdir'] = $imgdir; $page = 1; } if (!isset($_SESSION['images'])) { $_SESSION['images

  29. Hi, This is a probably a wrong way of inserting new email into the DB and can result in race conditions. You should be inserting the new email directly into the DB and your column for ermail ids should be unique so that it throws an exception for duplicate entries.

  31. Not even close. This code... $product_details = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE product_id=".$_GET['product_id']; $prepare = $connect->prepare($product_details); $prepare->execute(); ...would embed any SQL injection code contained in the GET into the query which would then be executed. (Just as an unprepared query would) In the correct version the injection code would only be treated as data and not part of the SQL code.

  32. Protecting a form field from what? htmlspecialchars() is for use when outputting user-supplied data data to a web page. mysql_real_escape string() is was used to protect input values to queries from SQL injection. This is now obsolete, replaced by mysqli_real_escape_string() or (better still) the use of prepared statements to completely separate the query code from the user-supplied data.

  41. Text areas do not have a value attribute. EG <textarea rows="10" cols="100" name="page_description" >Text area content goes here</textarea> The text content goes between the <textarea> and </textarea> tags. As you don't have the closing </textarea> it assumes everything following is still part of the text content.

  43. You could assign the event names to an array, for example: $name = array(); while ($row_events = $sth_events->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC)) { $name[] = $row_events['name']; } Then you could use implode() to output the array. Note that I streamlined the following code a bit: $week .= '<td><div class="'; $week .= ($today == $date) ? 'today' : 'day'; $week .= '">' . $day . '</div>' . implode('<br>', $name) . '</td>'; With that said, it would be better to rewrite the script, as requinix is suggesting, so that you're not running queries inside of loops
