I'm just wondering how I can make an image into a link. I have a page which displays all the details on all of the products I have stored in my database and I have an image of each product beside them. What I am doing at the moment is typing the name product id in and clicking on a button to update it which sends all the details on the product to a new page where they can be updated. What I want to do is just click on the image and have it send all the details to the next page, rather than having to type in a product id everytime so as to cut down on human error.

I have the table with the details displayed as follows: 

<td align="center"><img src="http://snet.wit.ie/~ciaracousins/clothes/' . $row['image'] . '">
<td align="center">'.$row['prodId'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['shopName'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['prodName'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['dept'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['brand'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['type'].'</td>                                                   
<td align="center">'.$row['image'].'</td>
<td align="center">'.$row['price'].'</td>

Then to send the information to the next page I was using

<form action="admin_delete.php?login=true&shopName=<?php echo $shopName; ?>" method="post">

Ummm, put an anchor tag around it....

<a href="nextpage.php"><img src="image.png" border="0" /></a>

As above, but obviously to pass any data you'll need to pass some stuff in the URL so you can access it on the next page via $_GET.

print "<a href='nextpage.php?shopname=".$row["shopname"]."&type=".$row["type"]."'><img src='blah.jpg' /></a>";

Don't forget to clean and check that the values you access on the next page via $_GET are what you want them to be, else you're asking for security problems with people passing mallicious stuff to the page via the URL.
call me a safe bet, i'm betting i'm not

Ok now the values are being passed to my admin_update.php page but it is not displaying the table like it did when I used the update button, even though what is being passed in through the url is the exact same. I am only new to php and wrote the code for the update page months ago and havent been near it since, so I have forgotten a lot of it. Here is the code that I used anyway:

	include "db.php";

$prodId = $_GET['prodId'];
$shopName = $_GET['shopName'];

$query="select shopId from shops where shopName=$shopName";

$sql= "select * from product where prodId=$prodId";


		$prodId= trim($_POST['prodId']);
		$sName = trim($_POST['shopName']);
		$prodName= trim($_POST['prodName']);
		$dept = trim($_POST['dept']);
		$brand = trim($_POST['brand']);
        	             $type = trim($_POST['type']);
		$image = trim($_POST['image']);
		$price = trim($_POST['price']);


		$query2 = "UPDATE product SET prodName='$prodName', dept='$dept', brand='$brand', type='$type', image='$image', price='$price' WHERE prodId ='$prodId' and shopName='$shopName'";

		$result = @mysql_query($query2);
				echo'<p align=center><font color="#333333"><b>UPDATED SUCCESSFULLY</b></font></p>';
				echo'<h1> System Error </h1>';

		$query = "SELECT * FROM product WHERE prodId = '$prodId' and shopName='$shopName'";

		$result = @mysql_query($query);

					<form action="admin_update.php" method="post">

					<table align="center" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" bgcolor="#ffffff" border=1 bordercolor="#2696b8">';

					while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)){

<tr><td align="left" bgcolor="#2696b8"><center><font color="black"><b>Product Id </b></center></td>
<td align="left">'.$row['prodId'].'</td>

<tr><td align="left" bgcolor="#2696b8"><center><font color="black"><b>Shop Name</b></td>
<td align="left">'.$row['shopName'].'</td>

<tr><td align="left" bgcolor="#2696b8"><center><font color="black"><b>Product Name</b></td>
<td align="left"><input type="text" name="prodName" size="30" maxlength="30" value="'.$row['prodName'].'"/></td>


Would be really grateful if you could point out what other changes need to be mage
