I'm a little confused over why you would display the same flavor more than once for a single item. But ok. Have you thought about populating an array with the flavors and then retrieving flavors from the array however many times you need to in an if statement. Maybe it would be easier to comment

[PHP] MySQL tables are read-only

2001-10-04 Thread Alfredeen, Johan
My webhost recently migrated my site over to a new server and IP. Everything looks ok, except that all my MySQL tables now are read-only (at least that's the error I get when trying to delete or insert records). How do I change the tables back to write? Can I switch individual tables to write or

Jord, I would accomplish this through SQL. You could use SELECT LEFT(mycolumn,x) FROM mytable WHERE ... and then display that along with a link to a page where you select the whole string on that particular article ID. In fact, I do this exact thing on my site. Or you could read the whole

Jamie, There was a post earlier very similar to this. If you have a database, you could use SELECT LEFT(mycolumn, 100) FROM mytable WHERE ... Without a db, you can use the PHP substring function: substr() Hope this helps, Johan Alfredeen www.pongworld.com -Original Message- From:

Jeremy, The reason you are only getting the first value is because you are only retrieving the first value and assigning it to $data. You need to step through the result and do something with it. For example, if ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) { do {

My experience, at least from Oracle and SQLServer, is that very large tables (many millions of records) is not really a problem as long as you design and index well. Where you'll run into problems is when you try to join 2 very large tables together on the fly. This is where you'll need to do

Nick, I also have noticed weird behavior with multi (or 2D) arrays. Read more on the manual board about arrays. However, I have finally figured out something that works. Be careful of you you define the subarray, assign values, and read the array. Here's what works for me: Creating: (you could

Joseph, The below postings are what you're looking for. Hopefully the in_array PHP function uses a smart search algorithm and doesn't go through the entire array. If you store your values in a db you can make use of an index on the column, or you could write your own search algorithm that uses a

You can use a while loop. Ie: (where $row is the result of a sql query) if ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) { do { $var1 = $row[column1]; $var2 = $row[column2]; $var2 = $row[column3]; } while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result));

Jack, Yes this is possible. I assume you want to use a javascript onClick event function. Then in your javasript code, just execute your PHP code. You can run PHP code within a javascript block. For example, on my site I assign a javascript variable to the value held in a PHP variable like this:
