  1. I have the following general mySQL query: $query = sprintf( "SELECT a.A, a.B, ..., a.C, FROM a WHERE a.A = %s ORDER by a.A;", implode(" OR a.A = ", $_SESSION['values'])); for some records, B has a value, and for others, B is NULL. That is what I want. I extract the query with the following PHP: for ($i = 0; $i < $nrows; $i++){ $row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result);//fetches data stored within each row extract($row); echo "<tr>"; foreach($row as $column => $field){ if($field == $...){ ... } elseif($field == $C){ echo"<td> <input type='text' name='C+[]' value='$C'> </td>"; } echo "</tr>" } In the resulting html table, records containing not null B fields are presented accurately, while records with null B fields incur a duplication of field C. This offset occurs at the beginning of the record, pushing the final field in the record outside the table boundaries. I think I've narrowed down the problem to the extract() function, as r_print readouts of every other variable in the script returns the accurate field names and values. But, running print_r on $row after extract() provides an identical printout to other variables in the script. What are some possible ways I can stop the duplication of field C from occurring? Happy to provide more information upon request.
  2. Hi. I'm not exactly new to PHP but I am brand new to this community. I have been PHP aware for about 5 years but in all that time the amount of coding I have actually done has been rather pathetic. I work for a company that is quite... insular, and secluded (their choice, not mine) from the wider developer community. As a result I only discovered PHP Frameworks about a year ago and feel quite behind the times. I am used to writing procedural PHP and not much else. I am here to hopefully broaden my horizons and get a better understanding of Frameworks, OOP, SQLi or PDO or database "unspecific" applications. When I first discovered PHP Frameworks about a year ago, my friend suggested I get started using CodeIgniter (that seems to be a lot of newbies' first choice!). I loved it, but after reading various rantings and ravings on the internet I decided that I should probably move on to something more "professional". That's when I came up against SF2 and almost cried myself to sleep every night. It made no sense to me. It still makes no sense to me. I gave up. After that I tried Laravel but couldn't even get going thanks to something called "Composer" which I still don't understand. I thought to myself, "I don't want to learn about dependencies at this stage, I just want to code". I gave up. Then another friend suggested I use PHP Slim. Another Framework. I tried to work with it but it seemed heavily dependant on knowing OOP, and I didn't have the first clue what I was doing. I gave up (are you sensing a pattern here?) So after that, I decided to try and learn the basics of OOP and how/why it was better than procedural and I have to say - I don't think it is. And I kind of hate it. I find it really confusing and not one person I have asked is able to tell me why OOP is better than procedural. They say "it just is". Sigh.... Then I decided to join PHP Freaks so I could vent my frustrations!
  3. Well, I am not a programmer. I have a diploma in IT but not in computer science field. I am more like a designer but I know some server side stuffs like MySQL and PHP (Procedural). I am making a website where people will share texts. There will be registration and login, then the user account where the user can edit his/her account settings and delete his/her text uploaded if he/she wants. There will be a form to post the texts. There will be a pagination. Of course, all will be in database and with security. I know many will say OO is better etc...bla bla bla. But the website I will make is not huge or complex like Facebook, Amazon or even other bulky websites. So, I can go with Procedural? By the way, Procedural is not dead, in fact it is still used more on medium-sized application. It is not a matter I do not want to learn OO, but, the website I am doing is not huge at all! Some functions that's all, and I dont have an issue to update the codes. In fact, it will not be updated too much. Your opinion?
  4. Hello. Are there any GOOD tutorials about MYSQLI Object orientated coding, and procedural. IE - ONE PAGE that has procedural instructions and DOESNT EVEN BREATHE a sign of object-orientated, and the swapped version. I prefer Procedural. I've found tutorials that have both codes in one page - very confusing.. You use 1 line of procedural, and another line of object orientated & of course its causes errors. I want seperate pages/information. I've been coding for years and now want a new thing added to my site. So I COPY the exact WORKING code i have on a separate script to this new script, and now that same code doesn't work. my current code is here:- $link = mysqli_connect('SITE.com', 'blah', 'Blahpasswrd', 'moreblah'); if ($link->connect_errno) { $GLOBALS["jobs"].="Failed to connect to MySQL: " . $link=>connect_error; save_logs("XXXXXXXXXV06_JOBSCHECK",$GLOBALS["jobs"]); exit(); } $sql = "SELECT * FROM `jobs` WHERE `ID` LIKE '$job%';"; $GLOBALS["jobs"].="\n$sql\n\n";$result = $link->query($sql); $result = $link->query($sql); while($row = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result)) { $text.=print_r($row,true)."\n"; } the error message im getting is:- [10-Jun-2023 23:30:43 Pacific/Auckland] PHP Warning: mysqli_fetch_assoc() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli_result, bool given in PATH.php on line 72 [10-Jun-2023 23:35:03 Pacific/Auckland] PHP Warning: mysqli_fetch_assoc() expects parameter 1 to be mysqli_result, bool given in PATH.php on line 72 all i want is a list of each line/row of the database that matches.
