  1. at your table use the php echo function <tr> <th><?php echo $t; ?></th> <th><?php echo $p; ?></th> <th><?php echo $hum; ?></th> </tr>
  2. the code here looks okay, the problem could be at some other portion of the code. A thorough debugging could work. Take a time out to rest a bit and look into the code, I'm sure you'll find the problem.
  3. thank you guys, i have been able to fix the code. i guess i just had to do thorough debugging. And thanks a lot @psycho
  4. @psycho nothing is being inserted into the database and I'm only getting the custom error from the the if-else statement
  5. no errors, just the custom error message. all other fields are working, i guess, its just where i need to input the selected id
  6. Hey guys, I created a form which has both text fields and select fields. I am able to display the values in the dropdown select field but i'm having troubles getting the id when trying to insert it into the database. Here's the code <?php /* * assigning vars to fields */ if(isset($_POST['submit'])){ $surname = $_POST['surname']; $forenames = $_POST['forenames']; $dob = $_POST['dob']; $gender = $_POST['gender']; $domination = $_POST['domination']; $nationality = $_POST['nationality']; $address = $_POST['address']; $country = $_POST['country']; $accommodation = $_POST['accommodation']; $session = $_POST['session']; $connection = $_POST['connection']; $parent_name = $_POST['parent_name']; $profession = $_POST['profession']; $phone = $_POST['phone']; $email = $_POST['email']; /* * set error flag to false */ $error = false; /* * set validation checks */ if(!preg_match("/^['a-zA-Z ']+$/", $surname)){ $error = true; $surname_error = "surname should only contain alphabets!"; } if(!preg_match("/^['a-zA-Z ']+$/", $forenames)){ $error = true; $forenames_error = "forenames should only contain alphabets and space!"; } if(!preg_match("/^['a-zA-Z ']+$/", $domination)){ $error = true; $domination_error = "domination should only contain alphabets!"; }if(!preg_match("/^['a-zA-Z ']+$/", $parent_name)){ $error = true; $parent_name_error = "parent name should only contain alphabets!"; } if(!preg_match("/^['a-zA-Z ']+$/", $profession)){ $error = true; $profession_error = "profession should only contain alphabets!"; } if(strlen($phone)<11){ $error = true; $phone_error = "enter a valid phone number"; } if(!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)){ $error = true; $email_error = "enter a valid email"; } /* * insert records into the database */ $query5 = "INSERT INTO candidate (surname,forenames,dob,gender_id,domination,nationality_id,address,country_id,accommodation_id,session,connection_id,) VALUES ('".$surname."','".$forenames."','".$dob."','".$gender."','".$domination."','".$nationality."','".$address."','".$country."','".$accommodation."','".$session."','".$connection."')" && " INSERT INTO `guardian` (parent_name,profession,phone,email) VALUES ('".$parent_name."','".$profession."','".$phone."','".$email."')

  7. num_row is a php function() to get the total number of rows in a databse table. To achieve this in PDO, use the rowCount() function instead. $query = "SELECT * FROM database_table"; $result = $db->query($query); $total = $result->rowCount(); Hope this works for you
  8. I'm Kessie and I'm new to php programming. I came across phpfreaks and was impressed about how willing and ready you guys are to help. I've been having issues with my project and really hope i can find the answers i need here. Thank you all for your help and advices in advance.
