69 New Member

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $photoId = mysql_escape_string($_GET['id']);                
  2. $q = "SELECT * FROM comments WHERE photoId = '" . $photoId . "' ORDER BY date DESC LIMIT 5";
submitComment.p hp....

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $theMessage = addslashes(strip_tags($_POST['message'])); 
  2. $q = "INSERT INTO comments (photoId, date, content) VALUES ('" . $photoId . "', '" . $theDate . "', '" . $theMessage . "')";
  3. $result = $mysqli->query($q) or die ('error could not insert into comments' . mysql_error());

how are users getting to submitComment.p hp from image.php?

link, form button?

Then change it to add the photoID as a URL parameter. Either in the link or the forum action.

You can also use session, but not recommended for your problem here.

sorry Its quite hard to explain but basically i need to get the page id value from one page and store it in to a varable which i can do. but then i need to somehow send that varible information to another page and from that page send it to my database.

on the submitComment.p hp there is a comment form that posts the comment and at the same time stores the information into the database, the problem is that it doesnt insert the photoId (the image.php $_GET['id']) because it dosent recognise it. so i was think or some how sending the id (image.php's $_GET['id']) to the submitComments page so it does.

but how can i send the variable? without form or button? thanx in advance, iv been googling for days

I think I know what you need.

In review_image you have this $photo_id that you use to pull an image. Then if someone wants to make a comment, they fill out this form:

<form name="comment-submission"> on like 132 above.

This message and comment should be attached to that photo_id, which needs to get passed to submitComment.p hp

Well, just like how you're sending the message itself, send the photo_id, by putting it in a hidden field inside that form.

One thing I don't see is how you get to submitComment.p hp. Your form doesn't have an action="" that goes to this page.

A hidden field is like
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <input type="hidden" value="<?php echo $photo_id;?>" />
Does that help?

Forgot to mention, when you put it in a hidden field, you grab it just like you grab message, via $_POST. make sure you still run mysql_escape on it because just because it's hidden, doesn't mean people can't change the value.

is your form posting to that page?

i.e. ensure your form action is equal to "submitComment. php" and the method is equal to 'post'.

By the way, escape_string() is useless when you echo in the hidden field.

If you do the above it will work.
