Display records strange problem!

Recommended Posts

Hi all im trying to display some records from my database using $_GET id as the unique variable. Trouble is it seems to display the id on all of my variables. It will only work if i choose to select a certain field from the database.

Here is the problem code:

[code]
<?
include 'includes/db.php';

$query=("SELECT * FROM ssrfc_noticeboard  WHERE id = '{$_GET['id']}'");
$result=mysql_query($query);
$date_posted=mysql_result($result,"date_posted");
$title=mysql_result($result,"title");
$message=mysql_result($result,"message");
[/code]

Could someone please correct me where im going wrong because this one is above me! Thanks

the manual should be the first place to look when something seems to be going wrong with a function, rather than your code's logic itself (or query errors):

[quote]string mysql_result ( resource result, int row [, mixed field] )[/quote]

you've got to specify the row before the fieldname.  here, since you're only grabbing one row (or should only be), you'd specify 0 as rows start counting from 0:

[code]$date_posted=mysql_result($result, 0, 'date_posted');[/code]
