Recommended Posts

Here's what i got, a part of poll script, actually this is for a user with some more priviliges... The problem I am facing is actually that my php code doesn't even recognize the text in HTML Form - the text boxes(at least thats what I think so). I made 2 errors - one if client didnt type the title of poll and one if there are lower than 2 answers. And the problem is Im getting those 2 problems all the time no mather what I type in textboxes


<?php 
}
function GetNewPollDetails(){
?>
  <h1>Nova anketa</h1>
<form name="frmAddPoll" action="managepoll.php?method=AddFinal" method="post">
<br />
  
Pitanje Ankete:<input type="text" name="$question" /> 
<br />
Odogovor 1:<input type="text" name="answer1" />
<br />
Odogovor 2:<input type="text" name="answer2" />
<br />
Odogovor 3:<input type="text" name="answer3" />
<br />
Odogovor 4:<input type="text" name="answer4" />
<br />
Odogovor 5:<input type="text" name="answer5" />
<br />
<input type="submit" value="Napravi" name="napravi" />
</form>
<?php
						}

function AddPoll(){

global $question;

global $answer1;

global $answer2;

global $answer3;

global $answer4;

global $answer5;

$numAnswers = 0;

$err = "";



if($answer1 != "")

{ $numAnswers++; }

if($answer2 != "")

{ $numAnswers++; }

if($answer3 != "")

{ $numAnswers++; }

if($answer4 != "")

{ $numAnswers++; }

if($answer5 != "")

{ $numAnswers++; }



if($question == "")

$err .= "<li>You didn't enter a title</li>";


if($numAnswers < 2)

$err .= "<li>You must enter at least two answer choices</li>";


if($err != "")

{

?>

<h1>Incomplete Fields</h1>

You didn't complete all of the details for this poll.

Take a look at the errors below and click the link

below to go back and correct them:

<ul>

<?php echo $err; ?>

</ul>

<a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">Go Back</a>

<?php

return;

}

include("dbvars.php");

@$svrConn = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pw) or die("Couldn't connect to the database server");

@$dbConn = mysql_select_db("websitenforum", $svrConn) or die("Couldn't connect to the database");


$strQuery = "INSERT INTO pollQuestions VALUES(";

$strQuery .= "0, '$question', '$answer1', '$answer2', '$answer3', '$answer4', '$answer5')";

if(mysql_query($strQuery)) {

echo "You made it, yes!";
}
}
?>

Since you have this line outside of php and just html, you must have the start and stop for php code.

so this

Pitanje Ankete:<input type="text" name="$question" /> 

 

to this

Pitanje Ankete:<input type="text" name="<?php echo $question;?>" /> 

 

If you echoed the html code and needed the variable, no need to have the start and stops, but do need to have them wrapped in the correct quotes at times.

well doing it on ur way I actually define nothing ... I tried it on this way

$question = $_POST['question'];
$answer1 = $_POST['answer1'];
$answer2 = $_POST['answer2'];
$answer3 = $_POST['answer3'];
$answer4 = $_POST['answer4'];
$answer5 = $_POST['answer5'];

But my whole script fucked up after I changed what u said, dunno what's the problem gotta go sleep now ill try tommorow
