    file name change help

    Sounds an interesting use case. All in the same folder? 'Cause if the path is different, "config.php" (or 'myApp.ini' or something similar) at least has the distinction of being an appropriate name for a configuration file. I once created 65 sites in one day using logic files, templates, and a config munger that changed "config.php" to contain appropriate defaults for the DOCROOT they were in. One of my proud "not proud" moments, I guess. 😉😉
  2. I'm not sure I understand 100% ... loop them for creation or reading? For reading, you'd need to know the element's name attributes (from the HTML) when processing the data in the handler script.
  3. Well, can you put them in the form somehow? Traditionally that might be done with <input type='hidden'>, if it's not possible to move the <form> tags to the appropriate locations. If you can't do that, I'm not sure what to tell you, because that sounds like front-end type magic (AJAX). Well, I kind of showed that in a more/less procedural style in my post above. If you want you could wrap that in a function; keep in mind you'd need to either declare $db to be global or establish a connection (or connection object) INSIDE your function. As Barand showed you, PDO or the newer MySQL(i) both assign the ID of the last inserted value to $db->insert_id; you can assign this to a variable and use it in your final SQL statement.
  4. He's just telling you how to get the ID of the last inserted row. You wrote pseudo-code, so that's not the only thing you need help with, I'd expect? Here's your pseudo-code with comments that I hope will help. I'll post again with some direct answers to your two points, above. <?php # First off, your code is accepting $_POST data at face value. # An attacker might be able to do something evil with that. # # Next, where's the SQL connection happening? I'll do a mysqli ... $db = mysqli_connect("localhost", "user", "pass", "db_name"); # NOTE: I don't do ANY error checking in this script. You'll NEED # to do that, because almost any invalid hit on the MySQL server will # halt execution of the script. $title = $_POST['$title']; $pageType = $_POST['$value']; # This code (and 3 others later) will make PHP expect a var named '#areaSelect' # in the POST data. You may need to do a print_r(), var_dump(), or use other debug-type # technique to ensure that you are indeed getting a var with that name from the browser. # (In other words, I wonder if you're confusing JS's DOM element ID's with POST data). $displayId = $_POST['#areaSelect']; # yields a UNIX_TIMESTAMP. As it's only used in one SQL statement, you # might just use MySQL's UNIX_TIMESTAMP() function and omit this. $start_time = now(); # see note above $end_time = $_POST['#datePicker']; $slide_order = $_POST['#orderSet']; $duration = $_POST['#durationSet']; # depending on the data type, you might not want to quote all the values (e.g. # MySQL may try to store integers as strings if they're quoted, and that might be # "not what you want" or even cause your statement to fail). $sql = "INSERT INTO pages(title, page_type_id, display_id, start_time, end_time, slide_order, duration) VALUES ('$title','$pageType','$displayId','$start_time','$end_time','$slide_order','$duration')"; $db->query($sql); $page_id = $db->insert_id; //Here, pass the content from the included fullwidth.php extarea content and the panel_type_id # you have a table named 'content', with a column named 'content', into which # you want to insert a variable named '$content' ... OK. But can we discuss naming? ;-) $content = $_POST['textArea'] $sql = "INSERT INTO content(content) Values('$content')"; $db->query($sql); $content_id = $db->insert_id; # typo here? $id is a PHP variable. # Also bug: I'm fairly sure you want ($id == "FullPage") ... not an assignment. if(#id = FullPage){ $panel_type = 1; } # This is where Barand's comment is helpful ... knowing how to get the Insert ID. $sql = INSERT INTO panels (panel_type_id, page_id, cont_id) VALUES ('$panel_type', $page_id, $content_id); $db->query($sql);

    how to update null

    NULL is trouble. In PHP it's approximately zero, it's special in the DB and requires that you use differrent syntax to set and/or check for it. Avoid it when possible and use some other value (like 0).

    Noteflight.com Bet they wrote a ship-load of JS for that ....

    music fonts required

    http://music-theory.com/fonts.html Petrucci, Marl, Tufa. Petrucci was in the first versions of Sibelius back in the 1990's. You could download these and put them in a folder on your site; then, in CSS: @font-face { font-family: Petrucci; src: url(fonts/pe.ttf); }
  11. An an extra hint, glob's return type is array

    Image print help in Php

    It might also be wise to redact (that is, remove or obfuscate/cover-up) your DB credentials in your example code's mysqli_connect() function. 😉

    COMPLETE - Planned Downtime: May 23rd-24th

    Nice to hear ... thanks for the heads up! And I hear you ... switching to Sphinx on OMBE has made a LOT of difference ... :-)
  14. If I'm understanding your question, a simple websearch should suffice; investigate iContact, ConstantContact, aWeber, MailChimp, Drift, Wishpond, Robly, Infusionsoft, Emma, getResponse, and some few others.
  15. Use case (statistics) I can think of: you're doing tracking of "logged-in" as well as "not-logged-in" users. We have some tables like that.
