How to display information on another page


Recommended Posts

Hi,

So I am currently making a real estate site for my class at school but I am having a tiny issue with the listing display page.

So what I want to do is show a bunch of listing that the agent owns on their dashboard which I have already done. Now I have two links one to update the listing and one to view the listing. Now what I am trying to do is when the view listing link is clicked it will take the user to the listing-display page and then I want it to display all the information for the listing that the link was clicked under. But i cannot for the life of me figure out how to do that!

 

This is currently the code for the dashboard where you only view the listing headline

<?php

// If the session was never set with a user id
$output = '';
$conn = db_connect();
if($_SESSION['userType'] != AGENT)
{
    $_SESSION['RedirectError'] = "You were not logged in as an Agent<br/>";
    header("Location:login.php");
}
if (isset($_GET["page"])) {
    $page  = $_GET["page"];
    $index = ($page -1) * IMAGE_LIMIT;
}
else {
    $page=1;
    $index = 0;
 }


?>
  <!-- start of main page content -->
  <div class="container" style="margin-top: 2em;">
    <h2>Dashboard</h2>

      <p>Welcome back <?php echo $_SESSION['userId']; ?> you last logged in on <?php echo $_SESSION['last_access']; ?></p>
      <h4>Your Listings</h4>
      <?php
          $sql = "SELECT listing_id FROM listings WHERE user_id = '".$_SESSION['userId']."' AND status = 'o' ORDER BY listing_id";
          $result = pg_query($conn, $sql);
          $listings = pg_fetch_all($result);
          for($index; $index < pg_num_rows($result); $index++)
          {
              $sql = "SELECT * FROM listings WHERE listing_id = '".$listings[$index]['listing_id']."'";
              $listing_result = pg_query($conn, $sql);
              $arrayRow = pg_fetch_assoc($listing_result);
              echo (build_listing_card($arrayRow));
              if($index !=0 && ($index +1) % IMAGE_LIMIT ==0){
                  break;
              }
          }
      ?>
          </div>
          <br/>
          <?php
          $total_pages = ceil(count($listings) / IMAGE_LIMIT);
          $pageLink = "<div class='pagination'>";
          for ($i=1; $i<=$total_pages; $i++) {
                       if($i == $page)
                       {
                          $pageLink .= "<a class='active' href='dashboard.php?page=".$i."'>".$i."</a>";
                       }
                       else {
                           $pageLink .= "<a href='dashboard.php?page=".$i."'>".$i."</a>";
                       }
          };
           ?>
       </div>
       <br/>

and this is the code for the listing-display page where I want all the listing information to be displayed
 

<?php

if (isset($_GET['listing_id']))
    {
        $_SESSION['listing_id'] = $_GET['listing_id'];
    }
    else
    {
        $_SESSION['listing_id'] = 0;
        echo "ERROR: listing information was not find";
    }

    $sql = 'SELECT * FROM listings WHERE listing_id = ' . $_SESSION['listing_id'];
    echo "<BR>".$sql;
    $result = pg_query(db_connect(), $sql);
    $records = pg_num_rows($result);

    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "listing_id");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "user_id");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "status");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "price");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "headline");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "description");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "postal_code");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "images");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "city");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "property_options");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "bedrooms");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "bathrooms");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "garage");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "purchase_type");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "property_type");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "finished_basement");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "open_house");
    echo "<BR>".pg_fetch_result($result, 0, "schools");
?>

Do not use the session to pass data between specific pages. Use the query string and $_GET. The session may look appealing but it has a number of drawbacks, such as being unable to view the same page with two different sets of data, and users being unable to copy or share URLs to a page.

don't execute SELECT queries inside of loops. with today's server hardware, the time it takes for php to send the sql query statement to the database server is several times longer than the time it takes the database server to execute a query. you want to limit the number of queries you execute.

postgreSQL has a LIMIT n OFFSET m statement that you should use for pagination. if for some reason you are not supposed to use that for this assignment, use php's array_slice() on the $listings array to get an array of the desired ids. then use an IN() operator to get the desired rows of data using one query.

btw - the header() redirect needs an exit/die statement to stop program execution. without an exit/die, all the rest of that code is still executed.

since you haven't shown us  what the build_listing_card() code is or what output it produces, cannot help you with what or why your view listing links should be or don't work.

don't write code like this either. every pg_fetch_result() call performs a data-seek, followed by a fetch. this takes twice as long a just fetching the data, and you have a couple of dozen pg_fetch_result() statements.

the query in this code will match at most one row of data. just fetch that row into a php variable, then access elements of that fetched array. this will run measurably faster and take a lot less typing to produce the code needed for the page.

if your initial long list of echo statements are for debugging purposes, just use print_r() or var_dump(), surrounded by html <pre>...</pre> tags to format the output. if this output is instead a desired part of the page output, don't spend your time typing out line after line of code for each possible field/column. use a loop and let php do the work for you.

You are fetching $_GET['listing_id'] from the URL, so you have to provide that info at least in a link
