A little varible problem


Recommended Posts

ok, i am experimenting with PHP to make a basic text RPG, i am quite savvy with other programing languages but sadly not PHP.

the code is a basic setup script for the site, it should simply pass the INPUTBOX entrys to a FlatfileDB handler for writing to a file called ADMIN.DAT (just a txt file really) anyway all it does it pass the NAME of the inbox's tp teh DB handler, i am hopling someone can point out where i am going wrong

[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]
function goninja($adminusr, $adminpswd, $adminemail, $adminloca, $gamename, $gameurl)
//Define Table names, for Usability
define('adminusr', 0);
define('adminpswd', 1);
define('adminemail', 2);
define('adminloca', 3);
define('gamename', 4);
define('gameurl', 5);

//Start DataBase Server

//Create New Database Within data directory
$db = new Flatfile();
$db->datadir = 'data/';

//now lets setup first entry
$newpost[adminusr] = $adminusr;
$newpost[adminpswd] = $adminpswd;
$newpost[adminemail] = $adminemail;
$newpost[adminloca] = $adminloca;
$newpost[gamename] = $gamename;
$newpost[gameurl] = $gameurl;
$newId = $db->insertWithAutoId('admin.dat', POST_ID, $newpost);


<body class="thestyle">

<h1 align="center">THE ASCENSION
<p align="center" class="thestyle">SOME TEXT HERE</p>
<p align="left" class="thestyle">Well here we go!</p>
<form action="<?php goninja(adminusr, adminpswd, adminemail, adminloca, gamename, gameurl); ?>" method="post" name="form1">

I think its the way you handle the form. Just set the form action to the same page that you are or and then add this at the top:

if(isset($_POST['Submit'])) {
    goninja($_POST['adminusr'], $_POST['adminpswd'], $_POST['adminemail'], $_POST['adminloca'], $_POST['gamename'], $_POST['gameurl']);

That should work. I would also recommend changing:


To this:


For all of the $newpost array.
