MySQL INSERT into putting array on seperate table rows


Recommended Posts

Hi again all,


Why does the foreach loop im doing, put the array values from collection, into seperate table rows rather than 1 row per whole array?


        class registration{                    
            public $fields = array("username", "email", "password");
            public $data = array();
            public $table = "users";
            public $dateTime = "";
            public $datePos = 0;
            public $dateEntryName = "date";
            public $connection;
            function timeStamp(){
                return($this->dateTime = date("Y-m-d H:i:s"));
            function insertRow($collection){      
                    foreach($this->fields as $row => $value){
                        mysql_query("INSERT INTO $this->table ($value)
                        VALUES ('$collection[$row]')");
            function validateFields(){            

                $this->connection = new connection();
                foreach($this->fields as $key => $value){
                    array_push($this->data, $_POST[$this->fields[$key]]);
                $this->dateTime = $this->timeStamp();
                array_unshift($this->data, $this->dateTime);                
                array_unshift($this->fields, $this->dateEntryName);   
                foreach($this->data as $value){
                    echo "$value";
        $registration = new registration();


I end up with 3 rows


row 1: username

row 2: email

row 3 : password


rather than row 1:username email password.

I got this to work... Is there a better way with the foreach thingy?


            function insertRow(){      
                $row = implode(', ', $this->fields);
                $str = implode('\', \'', $this->data);
                mysql_query("INSERT INTO $this->table ($row)
                VALUES ('$str')");
