    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. edit: If Your Common Sense/shrapnelcol came across this thread and decided they wanted to join our forum...

    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 $box = Array ( [0] => 23 [1] => 55 [2] => 871 [3] => 55 [4] => 871 [5] => -140 [6] => 23 [7] => -140 ) You may wonder why it can't just give a rectangle from (0,0) to (width, height) to make sizing simple, but there is extra information to be extracted from the array Text width = (871 - 23) = 848 Text height = 55 - (-140) = 195 The baseline will be 140px from the top The text is offset 23 px to the right. My text, therefore, will be in a rectangle 848 x 195 positioned 250 px from right and bottom edges. The top left x coord of the rectangle will be (4896 - 250 - 848) = 3798 and top left y coord will be (3672 - 250 - 195) = 3227. However, to land the text precisely into this area we position it on the baseline and at the required x offset, ie (3798 - 23 , 3227 + 140) = (3775, 3367). I use a simple custom function to assist with this process function metrics($font, $fsize, $str) { $box = imagettfbbox($fsize, 0, $font, $str); $ht = abs($box[5] - $box[1]); $wd = abs($box[4] - $box[0]); $base = -$box[5]; $tx = -$box[0]; return [ 'width' => $wd, 'height' => $ht, 'ascent' => $base, 'offsetx' => $tx ]; } $box = metrics ('c:/windows/fonts/vivaldii.ttf', 150, 'The lazy fox'); $box = Array ( [width] => 848 [height] => 195 [ascent] => 140 [offsetx] => -23 )

    Don't use $GLOBALS. Forget it exists. There is never a good reason to use it. Pretend you never saw it.

    $q = 'SELECT ID FROM table'; That is a SQL query. You have to run that query through your database, receive the results, and then look for each single matching image in the directory for every returned record. You can probably skip looking in the directory, though. It will only tell you if the file exists. So if you already know (or assume) the file exists then you don't need to bother looking.

    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. Because if you forget about the old file then there's not much of a point to keeping the file itself around too. 2. Keep track of the previous file. You'd probably want a table that holds all the information for past and future uploads, and that's where you track them. For using those files, instead of storing the file information in whatever place, you reference the file in your upload information table. New image, new information row, and you update whatever place was affected. This lets you keep a history of everything, which probably isn't important for stuff like user avatars but is frighteningly important for stuff like monetary transactions. "Okay, I've decided that I want to do <whichever option>. But what about my literal question? Should I update or delete and insert?" Time to learn about an important concept in computing that disappointingly few programmers ever end up learning: atomicity. That's the noun version of "atomic", which means (in this case) that whatever operation you need to do can't be interrupted or broken in half or appear to anyone else as being anything less than one single action. Atomicity is important for stuff like files and databases because you basically never want to look at a file or data in the middle of some important operation. Imagine your site is popular. Really popular. Facebook or Twitter popular. Constant traffic to your servers. Now imagine a user uploads a new image. When the code is ready, it needs to go off into the database to make whatever changes it needs to make so the user has the new image. Say you go with DELETE and INSERT. Your code runs one query that DELETEs whatever, then another query that INSERTs. Sounds fine. Except remember how your site is always busy? It's quite possible someone was looking at your site at the moment in between those two queries. Since the DELETE has happened but not yet the INSERT, your code isn't going to find whatever data it needed to find and the user is going to get a bad experience. If that user was a CEO for a huge company that wanted to buy you out for lots of money, they might not do that now. A DELETE and INSERT is not atomic because there was that point in between the two queries. It was not "one single action". Instead you go with UPDATE. The database does whatever it does, but the clever people who wrote the software for it already knew about stuff like atomicity. And they made their system guarantee that UPDATEs are atomic. One single action. If you do an UPDATE when that rich CEO looks at your site, the database has guaranteed to you that either (a) the CEO will see the old data because the update hasn't happened yet, or (b) they'll see the new data because the update has happened. There is no moment in between old and new for stuff to be broken.

    Unlikely Quotes need removing... $query = "UPDATE `greencard` SET `comments`= '$comments', 'sent' = '$sent' WHERE `hospitalnumber`= '$hospitalnumber' and `PIN`= '$PIN'"; ^ ^ and it's easier just to use ... sent = NOW() WHERE ...

    Defining a value in the parameter list makes that parameter optional. If it's not provided when the function is called, the it takes on the value assigned to it. Your specific example doesn't really make use of the feature effectively. Take something like this for example though: function findFiles($directory, $includeHidden = false){ $iter = new DirectoryIterator($directory); $list = []; foreach ($iter as $item){ if ($item->isFile()){ $isHidden = $item->getFilename()[0] === '.'; if ($includeHidden || !$isHidden){ $list[] = $item->getPathname(); } } } return $list; } That function requires at least one parameter when it's called, the directory to search. So you end up with the following options for calling it $files = findFiles('/home/kicken'); /* executes with $directory = '/home/kicken', $includeHidden = false */ $files = findFiles('/home/aoeex', true); /* executes with $directory = '/home/aoeex', $includeHidden = true */

    Your randomNr array contains 10 elements so foreach($randomNr as $number) will give 10 columns. You need to pick a random 6 numbers out of the 10. Separate the php code from the html. Use CSS for styling the output. Example <?php $randomNr = range(0,9); $bingokaart = display($randomNr); function display ($arr) { $result = ""; for ($row = 1; $row < 7; ++$row) { $rand6 = array_rand($arr, 6); $result .= '<tr>'; foreach ($rand6 as $n) { $result .= "<td>$row$arr[$n]</td>"; } $result .= "</tr>\n"; } return $result; } ?> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Sample</title> <style type="text/css"> table { border-collapse: collapse; } td { padding: 2px; } </style> </head> <body> <table border='1'> <?= $bingokaart ?> </table> </body> </html>

    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

    They aren't the same width because you don't have any sort of CSS in there that says anything about a width. It's not like the browser can read your mind about how you want it to appear... Have you tried giving the buttons a width?

    An alternative to the 2-table option is to treat costs as transactions, just like payments (cost amounts +ve, payment amounts -ve in this example)... DATA TABLE: payment +------+------+------------+--------------+---------+ | uid | name | trans_date | payment_type | payment | +------+------+------------+--------------+---------+ | 1 | kim | 2020-03-01 | cost | 100 | | 1 | kim | 2020-03-02 | card | -100 | | 2 | lee | 2020-03-01 | cost | 95 | | 2 | lee | 2020-03-02 | cash | -95 | | 3 | kent | 2020-03-01 | cost | 100 | | 3 | kent | 2020-03-03 | cash | -50 | | 3 | kent | 2020-03-04 | card | -50 | | 4 | iya | 2020-03-01 | cost | 80 | | 4 | iya | 2020-03-05 | cash | -40 | | 4 | iya | 2020-03-06 | card | -20 | +------+------+------------+--------------+---------+ then SELECT uid , name , date , cost , cash , card , total as balance FROM ( SELECT name , DATE_FORMAT(trans_date, '%b %D') as date , CASE payment_type WHEN 'cash' THEN -payment ELSE '-' END as cash , CASE payment_type WHEN 'card' THEN -payment ELSE '-' END as card , CASE payment_type WHEN 'cost' THEN payment ELSE '-' END as cost , @tot := CASE @previd WHEN uid THEN @tot+payment ELSE payment END as total , @previd := uid as uid FROM ( SELECT * FROM payment ORDER BY uid, trans_date ) sorted JOIN (SELECT @previd:=0, @tot:=0) initialize ) recs; +------+------+---------+------+------+------+---------+ | uid | name | date | cost | cash | card | balance | +------+------+---------+------+------+------+---------+ | 1 | kim | Mar 1st | 100 | - | - | 100 | | 1 | kim | Mar 2nd | - | - | 100 | 0 | | 2 | lee | Mar 1st | 95 | - | - | 95 | | 2 | lee | Mar 2nd | - | 95 | - | 0 | | 3 | kent | Mar 1st | 100 | - | - | 100 | | 3 | kent | Mar 3rd | - | 50 | - | 50 | | 3 | kent | Mar 4th | - | - | 50 | 0 | | 4 | iya | Mar 1st | 80 | - | - | 80 | | 4 | iya | Mar 5th | - | 40 | - | 40 | | 4 | iya | Mar 6th | - | - | 20 | 20 | +------+------+---------+------+------+------+---------+

    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 | +------+------+------+------+------+---------+ | 1 | kim | 0 | 100 | 100 | 0 | | 2 | lee | 95 | 0 | 95 | 0 | | 3 | kent | 50 | 50 | 100 | 0 | | 4 | iya | 40 | 20 | 80 | 20 | +------+------+------+------+------+---------+ If you really need every transaction listed, the SQL becomes quite complex involving user variables and subqueries. It would be much easier to do in the PHP as you output each row. [EDIT] ... For the sake of completeness SELECT uid , name , cash , card , cost , cost-total as balance FROM ( SELECT name , CASE payment_type WHEN 'cash' THEN payment ELSE 0 END as cash , CASE payment_type WHEN 'card' THEN payment ELSE 0 END as card , cost , @tot := CASE @previd WHEN uid THEN @tot + payment ELSE payment END as total , @previd := uid as uid FROM ( SELECT * FROM payment ORDER BY uid ) sorted JOIN (SELECT @previd:=0, @tot:=0) initialize ) recs; +------+------+------+------+------+---------+ | uid | name | cash | card | cost | balance | +------+------+------+------+------+---------+ | 1 | kim | 0 | 100 | 100 | 0 | | 2 | lee | 95 | 0 | 95 | 0 | | 3 | kent | 50 | 0 | 100 | 50 | | 3 | kent | 0 | 50 | 100 | 0 | | 4 | iya | 40 | 0 | 80 | 40 | | 4 | iya | 0 | 20 | 80 | 20 | +------+------+------+------+------+---------+

    Not sure I would call a registration and login system less complex than threads and posts, but I guess it depends... I suggest you take a look at MariaDB's knowledge base section on database theory.

    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 autocomplete) for no real benefit. I've been slowly undoing that when I can and just giving the columns nice simple names. I'd also suggest just using the full table name in your constraint names rather than some alias. It makes things very clear when someone 6 months later needs to decipher things.

    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". The code makes no attempt to ensure that the array indexes used actually exist; this may or may not be an issue. What if the individual is female and not married? They might object to being called "Mrs". What if the individual is not gender-identifying? They would object most strongly to be referred to by either of the terms used here. Marital status and/or gender are both Personal Data and should be stored in the User's "record" (whatever form that takes) so that it can be managed by/on behalf of the User and changed over time.

    This example uses glob() to get all .png and .jpg in a folder. By default, the folder is assumed to be named "images" and is a subdirectory of the folder containing the script.

    Yes but you don't want to run both at the same time. If you really wanted to, you would need to change the Apache port on one of them as they both use port 80

    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.

    It depends on the collation setting for the column.

    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.

    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.

    the path being used in the opendir() statement either has a hard-coded '/home/sites/' in it or is using a variable that has that incorrect value in it. based on the path where the code is actually at, that part of the path should be - /home/customer/www/

    Is the div in the DOM on page load or is it added dynamically later? You may have to use .on() to bind the event to the element.

    Use explicit joins FROM A JOIN B ON ... rather than confusing the issue by putting the join conditions in a WHERE clause (less efficient too). Also there may be employee/s at the top of the management tree without a manager. With my LEFT JOIN these would still appear, with w3fools's version they would not.

    I think that was ginerjm is trying to say is that this may not be the easiest thing in the world for you, but even though there are some people here who don't know stuff like jQuery very well, I know we can help you out in one way or another. I'm sure he wasn't trying to gate-keep the world of software development and say that you had to give up. Right, ginerjm? What I mean is that we don't know anything about your code short of what you can post here and tell us about. As people who have never seen it before, you automatically know more about it (as a whole) than we do. It's not exactly like we can just jump right into the middle of all this and tell you exactly what needs to happen. It's good to know it works somewhere, but if you need help getting it to work someplace it does not then it'd be more helpful if we knew more about that, right? The PHP code is simple enough so any problem is likely to be with the Javascript side. Any errors in the browser console? And the general troubleshooting questions apply: what is it supposed to be doing and what is it actually doing?

    That is no excuse to design db tables like spreadsheets. You can always create views for the technically challenged users. EDIT: For example there is a "fixture" table in the db in the tutorial on my site mysql> select * from fixture; +---------+----------+----------+-----------+-----------+--------+ | idmatch | hometeam | awayteam | homegoals | awaygoals | weekno | +---------+----------+----------+-----------+-----------+--------+ | 1 | 4 | 2 | 1 | 0 | 1 | | 2 | 2 | 4 | 2 | 2 | 2 | | 3 | 3 | 2 | 4 | 4 | 3 | | 4 | 1 | 3 | 1 | 1 | 1 | | 5 | 2 | 3 | 1 | 2 | 4 | | 6 | 3 | 1 | 1 | 3 | 2 | | 7 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 0 | 5 | | 8 | 2 | 1 | 0 | 3 | 5 | | 9 | 1 | 4 | 2 | 4 | 3 | | 10 | 4 | 1 | 4 | 4 | 4 | | 11 | 1 | 2 | 4 | 1 | 6 | | 12 | 3 | 4 | 1 | 4 | 6 | +---------+----------+----------+-----------+-----------+--------+ But to make it a bit friendlier, setting up a view gives mysql> select * from fixture_view; +---------+--------+----------+-----------+-----------+----------+ | idmatch | weekno | hometeam | homegoals | awaygoals | awayteam | +---------+--------+----------+-----------+-----------+----------+ | 4 | 1 | Laker | 1 | 1 | Jardine | | 1 | 1 | Cowdrey | 1 | 0 | Grace | | 6 | 2 | Jardine | 1 | 3 | Laker | | 2 | 2 | Grace | 2 | 2 | Cowdrey | | 9 | 3 | Laker | 2 | 4 | Cowdrey | | 3 | 3 | Jardine | 4 | 4 | Grace | | 10 | 4 | Cowdrey | 4 | 4 | Laker | | 5 | 4 | Grace | 1 | 2 | Jardine | | 7 | 5 | Cowdrey | 2 | 0 | Jardine | | 8 | 5 | Grace | 0 | 3 | Laker | | 12 | 6 | Jardine | 1 | 4 | Cowdrey | | 11 | 6 | Laker | 4 | 1 | Grace | +---------+--------+----------+-----------+-----------+----------+

    most likely, either your actual database name contains some non-printing/white-space character(s) or the Config::get() method, which you haven't posted the code for, is adding some non-printing/white-space character(s) to the value (i'm betting either a new-line or a <br> tag.) this code is just adding an unnecessary, pointless layer. it has no useful error handling, is using emulated prepared queries (the default), cannot be used with a LIMIT x term in a query, and can't be used with more than one connection or a different database type. if you want to do something useful for a database class, extend the PDO class and add a general prepared/non-prepared query method that will use a prepared query if there are input parameters and will use a non-prepared query if there are not. when you make the database connection, you should set the character set to match your database tables, set the error mode to exceptions, set emulated prepared queries to false, and set the default fetch mode to assoc (assoc works best when dynamically processing fetched data.)

    As to the manual, "die" is an alias of "exit" which is a function, and there are examples in the manual which you should try on a standalone script first, so you learn how to call functions with the appropriate syntax. https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.exit.php Also i would recommend to not just randomly copy and paste function signatures into production code and hoping that they work as you expect, but actually learn how PHP works and what syntax is needed from the examples.

    According to your first post you have an array of paths/filenames EG $arr = [ 'xxx/yyy/aaa-bbb-xxx.txt', 'xxx/yyy/aaa-vcf.txt', 'xxx/yyy/aaa-bbb-vbn.txt', 'xxx/yyy/aaa-bbb-vvv.txt', 'xxx/yyy/aaa-bbb-vcf.txt', 'xxx/yyy/aaa-bbb-xcv.txt' ]; If that is the case, I think your preg_split line needs to add a "." so the file extension is excluded. I.E. if(preg_split("/[-.]+/", $userBase)[2] == $keyword) ^ then echo array_search_partial($arr, 'vcf'); //--> 4 Also, your function should return something (false ?) if no match is found.

    I didn't realize this was a challenge question. You're all being lazy relying on the date function 😁 function isFridayThirteenth($year, $month, $day) { $m = (($month+9)%12)+1; $C = floor($year/100); $Y = $year%100-(($m<11)?0:1); $W = ($day + floor(2.6*$m - 0.2) - (2*$C) + $Y + floor($Y/4) + floor($C/4)) % 7; return ($W==5 && $day==13); }

    That all depends on the person. Some will be fine, some won't, others will we be somewhere in between. To be honest, you'll never make everyone happy. The best you can do is try something and see how things go. If you're not getting the results you want, you can always adjust. Depending on how big your audience is and how much time you have for testing, you could develop 2 separate options of the sign-up process. One would require the users to validate the email address. The other would skip the validation. You could then use A/B testing to see which option results in more website signups. More information about A/B testing can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A/B_testing

    You need to learn the difference between arrays and strings. The first is an array of arrays, the second is an array of strings containing numbers and commas Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => 5 [2] => 6 [3] => 7 [4] => 8 [5] => 9 ) [1] => Array ( [0] => 2 [1] => 7 [2] => 6 [3] => 5 [4] => 4 [5] => 3 ) [2] => Array ( [0] => 3 [1] => 12 [2] => 13 [3] => 14 [4] => 15 [5] => 16 ) ) Array ( [0] => 1,5,6,7,8,9 [1] => 2,7,6,5,4,3 [2] => 3,12,13,14,15,16 )
