PHP Image display problem

Recommended Posts

To the contributers so far... You guys rock, thanks again and again. Quick coding question...

I wonderful and helpfull  script posted by Orio but Im having trouble getting the image to show
I have commented the problem area. The link to my image is in a mySQL table and instead of showing the image its showing the code. What the deal here?


die("<html><body><form action=\"".$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."\" method=\"POST\">
<select name=\"cat\">
<option value=\"Holiday\">Holiday</option>
<option value=\"Animals\">Animals</option>
<input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Search!\">

$qry = "SELECT itemName,itemPrice,itemSmall FROM `products` WHERE itemCat='".$_POST['cat']."'";
$result = mysql_query($qry) or die(mysql_error());

echo "<table border=\"1\"><tr><td>Name</td><td>Price</td><td>Thumbnail</td></tr>";

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>".$row['itemName']."</td>";
echo "<td>".$row['itemPrice']."</td>";
echo "<td><img src=\"".$row['itemSmall']." /></td>";                  \\\itemSmall is the location of my thumbnail on the server
echo "</tr>";

echo "</table>";

I think that's my error.
Change this:
echo "<td><img src=\"".$row['itemSmall']." /></td>";

echo "<td><img src=\"".$row['itemSmall']."\" /></td>";

And you dont really need to open a new thread for every issue, you can reply if you have a problem :)

WOW thanks that worked like a charm...
PHP is a bear. all the "", / , \ ect.
how do you know where to put all that garbage.
I've got a 700 page php book Novice to Professional but pin pointing that information (if its in there) would have been Impossible.
