Return DB search to table


Recommended Posts

Hello. I am one of the millions of noobs out there. I have a script designed to look up database and return search results to a table. The page however is blank so nothing is being output at all. Even the source is empty when I look at it.


So the script starts with a simple index page to enter the search term and then submit. The search.php page then has the following parsed into the browser url = search.php?query=death&submit=Search


I have tried searching google for all sorts of reasons for blank pages but none appear to help as they all appear to be unrelated.


the script i am using on the search page is below, I want to learn so some pointers would be useful please.

    mysql_connect("localhost", "user", "password") 
    mysql_select_db("db") or die(mysql_error());

    $query = $_GET['query'];
    $min_length = 1;
     if(strlen($query) >= $min_length)
        $query = htmlspecialchars($query);
        $query = mysql_real_escape_string($query); 
      echo "<table border='0' width='300' align='center'>";
                echo "<tr align='center' bgcolor='#002C40' >
                <td height='35px' width='150px'>Title</td> 
   $raw_results = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM avathar15 WHERE 
(`user` LIKE '%".$query."%') OR (`alliance` LIKE '%".$query."%')");
        if(mysql_num_rows($raw_results) > 0)
            while($results = mysql_fetch_array($raw_results))
             echo "<tr align='center' bgcolor='#0f7ea3'>
             <td height='25px'>".$results['title']."</td>
            <td>".$results['text']."</td></tr>" ;
            echo "<tr align='center' bgcolor='#6C0000'>
           <td colspan='2' height='25px'>No results</td>
             echo "</table>"; 
        echo "Minimum length is ".$min_length;
