Recommended Posts

When I try this I get the "Unknown column in 'field list'" error

 

$newtext = stripslashes(strip_tags($_POST['text']));

$query = "INSERT INTO piccomment (picid,posterid,postername,comment) 
	  VALUES ('$_POST[picid]','$_POST[posterid]','$_POST[postername]',$newtext)";
query_db($query);

 

it works fine when im just doing:

 

"INSERT INTO piccomment (picid,posterid,postername,comment)

  VALUES ('$_POST[picid]','$_POST[posterid]','$_POST[postername]','$_POST[text]')";

I added in mysql_real_escape_string() and am still getting "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1"

 

however, when I submit the form once it works, the second time I try is when i get the error. So it looks like might not be a problem with my query..

 

 

I am going to post my code, it is kind of confusing and is mostly uncommented so I hope someone can help me make sense of it. I Commented where I thought the problem was.

I think I have gotten everything else on the page working now im just having trouble formating the mysql injection prevention stuff, what am I doing wrong there?

 

//RELOAD PAGE WITH THE PICTURE ID SENT FROM THE COMMENT FORM
$srippicid = stripslashes(strip_tags($_POST['picid'])); //not workig
$escapepicid = mysql_real_escape_string($strippicid); //not working
$query2 = "SELECT * FROM pic WHERE pictureid = '$escapepicid'";  //not working
query_db2($query2); 
$row2 = mysql_fetch_array($result2);
extract($row2);
}
else 
{
//LOAD PAGE WITH PICTURE ID FROM GALLERY PAGE
$srippicid = stripslashes(strip_tags($_GET['id']));  //not working
$escapepicid = mysql_real_escape_string($strippicid);  //not working
$query2 = "SELECT * FROM pic WHERE pictureid = '$_GET[id]'";   //WORKING!!
query_db2($query2);
$row2 = mysql_fetch_array($result2);
extract($row2);
