Save Data From An HTML Form To A Database Table In WordPress?

Mar 13, 2011

I have a WordPress theme, and I'm trying to save data from an HTML form into a database.I made the HTML form and added a "save & close" button which calls a JavaScript function named saveData() that takes the data from the form and sends it to addrow.php, which should save the data into a database table named vel.

I think the problem is in addrow.php because in WordPress, one needs to use the global $wpdb or some other thing.What would be a simple example be for how to save data from an HTML form into a database table in a WordPress-powered application?

The addrow.php code:

// Gets data from URL parameters
$nombre = $_GET['nombre'];



Allow User Insert Data To Mysql Table And Save It To A Html File

Jun 14, 2010

i would like to create a php code which allow user insert data to mysql table and save it to a html file. there are two part of my design, the first part allow user insert data to mysql.. like this

<form action="insert.php" method="post">
<p>size:<input type="text" name="size" /></p>
<p>color: <input type="text" name="color" /></p>
<p>name: <input type="text" name="name" /></p>
<p>Length: <input type="text" name="length" /></p>
<p>heigth: <input type="text" name="heigth" /></p>
<input type="submit" />

The problem is that i want every column retrieve data from mysql, so according to my method, there will be a lot of php script (start from <?php.............?>) replace to color, size, length, height. This method seems so stupid, i would like to know how does you guys make it. The second problem is that ("SELECT * FROM example WHERE id IN (3)" ). how can i automate the where id in (y) , i dont want to change every html to display the correct data.

Survey Written In HTML Using Generic HTML Form Processor, Won't Save A User's Data If The User Clicks The Previous Button?

Jul 2, 2010

I'm using Generic HTML Form Processor in combination with an xampp lite installation to save data into a MYSQL database. However, I've encountered a problem while writing a multi-page survey. If users use the previous and forward buttons coded like:

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Previous Page" onClick="history.go(-1);">
<input type="submit" value="Go to last page">

The next button differs slightly per page. For example, on page 1 it's:

<input value="Next Page" type="submit">

Users can go back and forth in the survey. I would prefer them to use the backwards and forward button to let the browser take care of saving the data but sadly it's not an option. The next button is linked to a hidden input code like:

<input type="hidden" name="next_page" value="http://localhost/quislast.html">

It works like a dream except for one problem. Imagine there are three pages, A, B, and C. If a user is on page C, and they click the previous button twice so they return to page A. If they then click the next page button, the form data (radio buttons) that the users select on pages B and C are no longer remembered. The users then have to re-select their answers before submitting the form.

Html - Dynamically Set Number Of Form Instances And Save All As Csv Using Php?

Jun 16, 2009

Im working on a php script to take an existing csv file (we'll call this one the template) and open it in a page and populate editable text fields with it's data between 1 and 50 times(user decides how many), which once edited to the users wishes, can then all be saved into a single combined csv file, separate from the template.

I included a link to a diagram of how i need this to work. I can open a csv, i can edit and save the csv, but i dont know how to dynamically take the number of clones the user needs, and render the template that many times in a way that when user is done, all fields are joined as rows of a single csv and saved to a new file.

The area highlighted in red, is the area im having trouble with. The templates contain approx 25 fields, so each instance of the template (clone) will have 25 editable fields that are populated with the original data. Im confident that i can do this myself, but i need pointed in the right direction as to how to dynamically set the number of clones of the original template, and then combine said clones as rows in a single csv file once finished.

Create A Data Entry HTML Form For Given Table

Sep 25, 2001

I am working on a simple web site updating utility for a web site. Rather than hard code the data entry forms, I would like to automactically generate them based upon the table a user selects to update or insert into. What is the best way to approach this?

for "insert" should I use the MySQL DESCRIBE table command and build a form element for each field according to its data type? for "update" should I use the DESCRIBE command to build the form as above and SELECT statement to populate each element with data, or should I just use a SELECT statement to retrieve the data and use php to determine the field type and choose an appropriate form element?

Convert Html Data In Table To Input Form?

Feb 8, 2010

I have a table that is passed via ajax and displayed. When the code is passed, it also passed all the javascript associated with the pass, as the code doesn't seem to work if I just put it in the page that it is being passed to.

When I click a in the table that has been passed, I would like to take the data convert it to a input field. Each TD has a class of table2, so in theory this should be simple.

function () {
var html = $(this).html();
$(this).empty().html('<input name="" type="text" value="' + html + ' " />);

But I get a

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in /products.php on line 90

When I try to do an ajax call on it.

If I try creating php variables, and passing the form data that way, I get an illegal XML error.

The reason I didn't include the PHP is that it is rather lengthy, and all it is doing is echoing some HTML/JS:

$dbh=mysql_connect ("name","user", "pass") or die('I cannot connect to the database because:'. mysql_error());
echo '<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">

Save An Array Of Checkboxes In A Wordpress Widget?

However this fails when trying to save.Is it even possible to pass an array of options like this and save them? If not, what would be an alternative solution.I could pass values like this:

Get Wordpress To Save Comments In Markdown Format?

Mar 12, 2011

I love markdown, and I have the Wordpress markdown-for-wordpress-and-bbpress parsing markdown in my posts and comments.

However, I've noticed that Wordpress saves the comments rendered in html format. This makes it more difficult to go back and edit comments. How can I get wordpress to save comments in markdown format?

I couldn't find a plugin for it. Maybe there's an easy php hack?


Maybe it's not builtin to wordpress. Comments normally not saved with any markup without the markdown plugin. Could be a markdown-for-wordpress-and-bbpress "feature" / accident?

Cross-posted to BAinternet had some good ideas of saving markup for comments like in the markup-on-save plugin, but no working solution yet.

In wp-content/plugins/markdown-for-wordpress-and-bbpress/markdown.php comment out the pre_comment_content markdown filter

remove_filter('comment_text', 'wpautop', 30);
remove_filter('comment_text', 'make_clickable');
#HACK don't save comments rendered in HTML

Save Html Tags In DB Or Store The Html Entity Value?

I was wondering about which way i should do the following. I am using the tiny MCE wysiwyg editor which formats the users data with the right html tags. Now, i need to save this data entered into the editor into a database table. Should I encode the html tags to their corresponding entities when inserting into the DB, then when i get the data back from the table, not have the encode it for XSS purposes but I'd still have to use eval for the html tags to format the text. ORDo i save the html tags into the database, then when i get the data back from the database encode the html tags to their entities, but then as the tags will appear to the user, I'd have to use the eval function to actually format the data as it was entered.

Validate / Save An Embedded Form Based On A Value In The Parent Form In Symfony?

The parent form has a drop down which determines which of the embedded forms you fill in (hidden/shown on the frontend using JavaScript).

The problem is, when I submit the form, the validation and save is being run on both of the embedded forms, which I obviously don't want.

What is the best way to alter the parent form so that it only validates and saves the relevant embedded form based on the selection made in the parent form?

1.Customer fills out form.

2. Clicks submit

3. Customer information is entered into table

4. Customer is brought to the page to enter their credit card

How Do I Get PHP To Save A Backslash In A Mysql Table?

The backslashes mysteriously are stripped. I use the following function to
wrap each variable that's saved in the MySQL table:

function update_database($value)

$value = addslashes($value);
// Quote if not a number or a numeric string
if (!is_numeric($value)) {
$value = mysql_real_escape_string($value);

Set A Database Table To Save The Routes?

Feb 6, 2010

Server's apache configured to redirect every request into index.php, so that I can use urls like.


Now I need to parse the url in order to determine if each route exists and what to expect from it, so I can set a database table to save the routes and so my clients can edit their routes as they like them to be.Thing is, I'm not able to do the parsing so far.

Here's my code:$uri = 'about/us';
$regex = '(page(/<action>))';
if ( ! preg_match($regex, $uri, $matches)) {


The regex here would be useful to parse the first argument as an action or page, and the second as a key that will only allow a certain set of chars, like if I want to expect, in this case, the second paramenter only to match "_-azAZ09", something like this.In other words, the set of regex expressions would me compared to the uri in order to determine if any of them matches the uri, and determine the action to take from that on.Using the explode function would make me evaluate the uri segments later in the code, wich I'd like to avoid.If there's no match to the uri, immediatelly forward the page to a 404 one and break the operation.

Save Data Into The Same Table Several Times From The Same $_POST Array?

Mar 8, 2010

I am trying to save data into the same table several times from the same $_POST array. You see, on my registration form a family is allowed to specify the names, gender and age of all members they wish to bring along.

This data is being stored in a database table called aditional_member. Based on family size, I am dynamically generating html table rows where each row has the number of input fields required.

<tr id="additionalmember_3">
<td><input type="text" name="first_name1" maxlength="50" value="" /></td>
<td><input type="text" name="last_name1" maxlength="50" value="" /></td>
td><select name="gender1" value="" ><option value='Male'>Male</option><option value='Female'>Female</option></select></td>
<td><select name="age_group"value="" ><option value='18 to 30'>18 to 30</option><option value='31 to 60'>31 to 60</option></select></td>

When I POST, let us say I have three sets of input(3 table rows as above), Is there a simple way to insert into the addional_member table the data from row one, then row two, and so on. I tried looping the insert statement, which failed.

I'm unable to save a record to a HABTM join table manually. I have a table, users_products and would like to save all additional information about the order (size, quantity, color, etc...) to this join table, instead of creating a separate one.

Configure::write('debug', 0);
//adds product to cart
$this->layout = ""; //async
$user = $this->User->find('first',array('conditions'=>array(''=>$this->Auth->user("id"))));
$data['User'] = $user['User'];
$addition = array('user_id' => $this->Auth->user("id"),
'product_id' => $id,

Unfortunately, this adds a new record to the database and clears out the entire join table while doing so.
