    Passing variable post names with php

    Thanks for the comments, I will do some more research.
  2. Hi, I'm trying to edit some database fields, I have text1, text2, text3, text4, text5, text6 etc.. They are displayed on the index.php page, with an edit link so the user can choose which set to edit // Extract details from database $sql = "SELECT * FROM data WHERE id=1"; $stmt = $db->prepare($sql); $stmt->execute(); $e = $stmt->fetch(); <h1><?php echo $e['text1']) ?></h1> <p><?php echo ($e['text2']); ?></p> <p><a href="edit.php">EDIT</a></p> <h1><?php echo $e['text3']) ?></h1> <p><?php echo ($e['text4']); ?></p> <p><a href="edit.php">EDIT</a></p> <h1><?php echo $e['text5']) ?></h1> <p><?php echo ($e['text6']); ?></p> <p><a href="edit.php">EDIT</a></p> edit.php: // Extract details from database $sql = "SELECT * FROM data WHERE id=1"; $stmt = $db->prepare($sql); $stmt->execute(); $e = $stmt->fetch(); <form method="post" action="process.php" enctype="multipart/form-data"> <label>Page Title <input type="text" name="text1" maxlength="90" value="<?php echo $e['text1'] ?>" /> </label> <br> <label>Title Text</label> <textarea name="text2"><?php echo $e['text2'] ?></textarea> <input id="button" type="submit" name="submit" value="Save Changes" /> and then update them: process.php $sql = "UPDATE data SET text1=?, text2=? WHERE id=1 LIMIT 1"; $stmt = $db->prepare($sql); $stmt->execute( array( $_POST['text1'], $_POST['text2'] ) ); $stmt->closeCursor(); Question: How can I pass the form values dynamically from the index.php page so I don't have to hard code text1, text2 etc into the edit.php and process.php page and have a different update & process page for each set of data? Thanks in advance.
