Sending An ID to select langauage

Recommended Posts

This is my menu.php(part of it) file, what am trying to do is to check what language would the user choose,
[code]
                <form method='post' action='index.php'>
                        <a class='menu' href='index.php?ID'>
                        <input type='hidden' name='ID' id='ID_Eng' value='ID_Eng'><img src='content/images/en.gif' border=0 alt='English'></a>
                        <a class='menu' href='index.php?ID'>
                        <input type='hidden' name='ID' id='ID_Rus' value='ID_Rus'><img src='content/images/ru.gif' border=0 alt='Russian'></a>
                        <a class='menu' href='index.php?ID'>
                        <input type='hidden' name='ID' id='ID_Ger' value='ID_Ger'><img src='content/images/ge.gif' border=0 alt='German'></a>
                        <input type='hidden' name='Check_ID' value='Check'>
                </form>



[/code]

and this is my index.php(part of it)
[code]
<?php
if (!@$page) $page = "home.htm";


if ($_POST['Check_ID'])
{
    
       $id=$_GET['ID'];


    if ($id = 'ID_Eng')
    {
    $directory = "content/en/";
    }
    else if ($id = 'ID_Rus')
    {
    $directory = "content/ru/";
    }
    else if ($id = 'ID_Ger')
    {
    $directory = "content/ge/";
    }
}

[/code]

and for the rest of the menu thats what i got:
[code]
    <tr><td class='menuDivLine'></td></tr>";
    
    
        if ($page=="home"){echo"<tr bgcolor='#C5B881'>";}
        else{echo"<tr onMouseover=this.bgColor='#C5B881'; onMouseout=this.bgColor='#ACE6FD';  bgcolor='#ACE6FD'>";}echo"
            <td><a class='menu' href='?page=home.htm'>Home</a></td>
    </tr>
    
    <tr><td class='menuDivLine'></td></tr>";
        if ($page=="fact_sheet"){echo"<tr bgcolor='#C5B881'>";}
        else{echo"<tr onMouseover=this.bgColor='#C5B881'; onMouseout=this.bgColor='#9CDAF3';  bgcolor='#9CDAF3'>";}echo"
        <td><a class='menu' href='?page=fact_sheet.htm'>FACT SHEET</a></td>
    </tr>
[/code]

What am I doing wrong, Thanks

I think you've got a bit confused as to whether to use GET or POST to determine this.

You won't have posted anything because despite your form having a method of post, there is no submit form button. Consequently nothing will get posted.

If you want to use GET with <a> tags and hyperlinks, you don't need to use the form at all.

I think you sould decide which method you would rather use, we can then go from there.

I think using the <a> tags would be much better, I don’t think the form is needed, but am not sure how to implement it.

Thanks

In that case..


do your href's something like the following and lose the form.


[code]
<a href='index.php?language=eng'>English</a>
<a href='index.php?language=ru'>Russian</a>

//etc
[/code]

then on your index.php page

[code]

switch($_GET["language"])
{
     case("eng"):
           $directory = 'content/en';
     break;

     case("ru"):
            $directory = 'content/ru';
      break;

    //etc

     default: print "An Invalid or No language was specified";
}

[/code]

in what sense is it not working?

do you get any errors? does $_GET hold any values on index.php? is $directory empty?

I found the mistake.... I had it this way:
[code]
$directory = 'content/en';
[/code]
which it should have been this way

[code]
$directory = 'content/en/';
[/code]

Thanks alot for your help
