Here a user can search for a Last name, first name, or email. Note,
there's no checkboxes because the user indicates what they are
searching for by where they place their search criteria.
Apparently it is more open to hacking than just plain PHP/MySQL. ??
Also, I seem to have things going fairly well - it's a neat way to learn
coding, especially when adjusting for things you hadn't planned in
advance, like if the user forgets to enter data or doesn't click on the
radio button. And then implementing the warnings and reloading (or not
reloading the page) to keep the data entered upon omission or
unacceptable entries. Get's hairy sometimes, but it's quite
still works. This is just an example of enhancement with graceful
degradation. It has nothing to do with the demo other than that.
The point of my showing you the demo was to simply suggest that you
forgo the checkboxes and go straight to the "Search" entry. After
all, that tells you everything you want to know about what the user
wants to do, right?
Why have the user click a checkbox showing that they want to search
for a book title and then also have then enter in the book title? Why
not just have them enter the book title and be done with it?
It might serve you well to rethink what you are wanting to do.
