need edit profile script (old one doesn't work)

Recommended Posts

ok i need a edit profile script

what gets the users info just from where hes logged in

so if user1 went to edit profile whent to edit his profile it would show only his info
and if user2 click on that link it would take it to his info not user1's

here's the code i use now.


    $id = $_GET['id'];

    $sql = "SELECT * FROM maaking_users WHERE userid='$id'";

    $result = @mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

    $user = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
    echo <<<HTMLFORM
<form action="{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}" method="post">
<table  cellpadding="2" cellspacing="1" width="400">
    <td wdith="35%">Username:</td>
    <td>Full Name:</td>
    <td><input type="text" name="fullname" value="{$user['fullname']}" /></td>
New Password: <input type="password" name="password" value="$password" /></td>
    <td>About Me:</td>
    <td><textarea height="200px" width="300px" input type="text/html"  name="about" value="" />{$user['about']}</textarea></td>
    <td>Email Address:</td>
    <td><input type="text" name="email" value="{$user['email']}" /></td>
    <td colspan="2">
      <input type="hidden" name="userid" value="{$user['userid']}" />
      <input type="submit" name="update" value="Update Profile">
    foreach($_POST as $field_name => $field_value)
        ${$field_name} = mysql_real_escape_string($field_value);

    $sql = "UPDATE maaking_users  set password='$password', about='$about', email='$email', fullname='$fullname' WHERE userid='$userid'";

    $result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

    echo "Successfully updated profile <br>
<a href='profiles.php?id=$userid'>Go to Profile</a>";

Well, your code does not only miss some info, but some code as well.  E.g. how can you do an } elsif when there is no preceeding IF { statement?
So if you want help, you'd better show all your code statements.
