Can anyone solve my problem? checkbox hell!

Recommended Posts

Help please.

No one can so far can come up with a solution.

All i'm trying to do is have a list of categories and sub cats. (they can be add to and deleted)
That are taken from the database, with a checkbox next to each one.
(This is as far as i've got)
http://theeventorganiser.com/reg_more_cats.php?id=6

Then insert into the database the checked checkboxs. (This is the problem)
The problem is i need to loop through the sub cats from the database which also means each checkbox is within the loop. So, i need to find a way of renaming the checkbox to the value of the sub cat for each loop. at the moment i only have 1 as the value.

I now i'm doing something very wrong, just dont know what.

Any help please.
Here is my messy code.

Head
[code]
<?php
$user_id = $_GET['id'];

if (!empty($_POST['mcsubmit'])) {
if(isset($_POST['1'])) {

$id = $_POST['id'];
$sub = $_POST['sub'];

$ssql2 = "SELECT * FROM categories";
$sresult2 = mysql_query($ssql2) or die ('could not connect');
$scount2 = mysql_num_rows($sresult2);
$srow2 = mysql_fetch_array($sresult2) ;
$category = $srow2['cat_id'];
echo $category;



$doquery = mysql_query("INSERT INTO users_sub (user_id, user_sub) VALUES ('$user_id', '$checked')") or die ("could not insert");
$doquery1 = mysql_query("INSERT INTO users_cat (user_id, user_cat) VALUES ('$user_id', '$category')") or die ("could not insert1");
$doquery2 = mysql_query("INSERT INTO users_categories (user_id, user_cats, user_subs) VALUES ('$user_id', '$category', '$checked')") or die ("could not insert2");

}
}
?>
[/code]

Form
[code]
<form name="more_cats" method="post" action="<?php $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">

<?php

$csql = "SELECT * FROM category";
$cresult = mysql_query($csql) or die ('could not connect');
$ccount = mysql_num_rows($cresult);

echo '<center>
<table cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5" border="0" width="600">';

for ($j = 0; $j < $ccount; $j++) {
echo '<tr>';
for ($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++) {
$crow = mysql_fetch_array($cresult);
$cat = $crow['cat'];
$id = $crow['id'];
if ($crow) {
 echo '<td valign="top">
  <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="150" class="TLRB_border" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" valign="top">
<tr>
<td align="center" bgcolor="#EEEEEE" colspan="2">
'.$cat.'
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="150" class="TLRB_border" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" valign="top">';


$ssql = "SELECT * FROM cats_sub INNER JOIN categories ON cats_sub.id = categories.id WHERE categories.cat_id = '$id'";
$sresult = mysql_query($ssql) or die ('could not connect');
$scount = mysql_num_rows($sresult);

while ($srow = mysql_fetch_array($sresult)) {
$currentsub = $srow['sub'];
echo '<tr>
<td>
&nbsp;&nbsp;'.$currentsub.'
</td>
<td>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<input name="1" type="checkbox" id="1"><br>
</td>
  </tr>';
echo '<INPUT type="hidden" name="id" value="'.$srow['id'].'">
<INPUT type="hidden" name="sub" value="'.$srow['sub'].'">';
}



 echo '</table><br><br>
</td>';
} else {
break;
}
      }

echo'</tr>';

  }
  echo '</table>';
?>
<input type="submit" name="mcsubmit" value="submit">
</form>
[/code]
