  1. Hey Guys, I am trying to fix a PHP page that I am coding for my job. Basically the functionality that I am looking for is a Marquee (Yes I understand the Marquee is done away with in HTML5. I haven't learned to use CSS instead yet) function where the names that I have in my database will scroll from bottom to top in the center of the page. I am a teacher and I am trying to set up a point system to display the points that my kids have earned. I have a MySQL database that has a few fields, such as student ID's, Names, etc. I want to connect my database and have the names and associating information scroll up one after the other on my website. I have some code that I found it online but it didi not work correctly. When it displayed, the entire database showed at once and then disappeared instead of scrolling one at a time. Yes I am a newby at this, so please have patience with me. I have searched online for an answer, and have not been able to find one. So I sdecided to try this forum. Any help is greatly appreciated. <?php $scrolling="true"; //Define if text is scrolling or Still //Config $db_host="localhost"; $db_name="swap"; $db_user="root"; $db_pass="pass"; // Check connection if (mysqli_connect_errno()) { echo "Failed to connect to MySQL. Make sure to edit the config.php file: " . mysqli_connect_error(); } $result = mysqli_query($con,"SELECT * FROM students ORDER BY studentId ASC "); while($swap = mysqli_fetch_array($result)) { if ($scrolling == "true"){ //Scrolling Text ?> <html> <h1 class="marquee"><span><b><?php echo $swap['studentId'];?> <?php echo $swap['first_name'];?></b><?php echo $swap['last_name']; ?><</html> <?php } else { //Not Scrolling Text ?><b><?php echo $swap['studentId']; ?> </b>: <?php echo $swap['last_name']; } } ?>

    Increment Table Variable

    No they are actually the same. The column in my database for where the damage count will be stored is named `damage#` I tried inserting the query but I keep getting an error. <?php if (isset($_POST['student_id'])) { $studentId = $_POST['student_id']; // handle case where we don't get a student id 'UPDATE `students` SET damage# = `damage#` + 1 WHERE `studentId` = ?'; $sql = 'SELECT * FROM `students` WHERE `studentId` = ?'; $stmt = $pdo->prepare($sql); $stmt->bindParam(1, $studentId, PDO::PARAM_INT); $stmt->execute(); $student = $stmt->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC);

    Increment Table Variable

    I am not sure what I am missing. I am a newbie at this. How would I incorporate this SQL stmt into PHP or HTML? Would I have to do some kind of while loop, or something else? Can you please give me an example if possible.

    Increment Table Variable

    Hey Guys!!, I am trying to figure out how to write some php code to increment a variable. I am using php version 7.1.2. I have tried looking for sources online to figure it out, but have not been able to find a good how-to. I am trying to run a simple php application that every time it runs, starting with 0 it adds +1 to my 'count' column in my 'students' database. Any help is much appreciated. CREATE TABLE `students` ( `ID` int(11) NOT NULL, `Name` varchar(11) NOT NULL, `count` int(11) NOT NULL ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8; INSERT INTO `students` (`ID`, `Name`, `count`) VALUES (12345, 'James Smith', 0), (56789, 'Mike Sims', 0);
