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

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.

Wordpress Adding Data To Table (database)?

I have a custom table in my WordPress database named "post_votes" used for voting post? Whenever I publish a new post can I simultaneously add some data to that table as well? I'm trying to achieve this without editing any wp core files. Perhaps a function if possible.

Save Form Data To Database Then Do Form Action?

I have an even registration form which a customer fills out and then clicks submit. On submit they are taken to my merchant processor to enter their credit card information and then redirected back to my site. However, I collect additional information about the customer that is not sent to the merchant provider. For example: Age.

When the customer clicks submit I want to save their information into my database, and then have them go to the merchant page. I do not want to add another step for them to click anything. What I want to happen is:

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

5. Customer clicks submit and their card is approved or declined and they are redirected back to my site.

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

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.

Save Dynamic Form Data From Javascript To Database With A Query?

So I have a script that makes dynamic form content and each input has a name of "field-1", "field-2", etc. up until the last input is created by the script. How can I save the form made to the database?I only know how to do this in a traditional way where you make like 5 static inputs and give them static names and ids then use the either post or get go formulate the mysql_query.But in my case, the inputs can range from 3 - 200 inputs. and each have a similar name/id of "field+num++"

My html code:

<form id="myForm">

My JS code that will append to my HTML form:

var $int = $('');
$int.html(function(i, html) {
return html.replace(/(d+)(.+)/,function(str,s1,s2){[code]....

more are created on the fly with the script, this can make like 300 sets of these 4 inputs

then I would like to do something like

mysql_query("INSERT INTO `table` (`scene_num`, `int_ext`, `scene_desct`, `day_night`) VALUES ('{$scene}', '{$int_ext}', '{$scene_desct}', '{$day_night}')");

Create A Data Entry HTML Form For Given Table

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?

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">

Mysql Database Data Into Html Table Limiting Column?

My script is retrieving images from a database and displaying the images in a table. I want to have the table have 4 columns of images before it breaks the row and starts over. I've found some helpful answers on this forum but after re-organizing and fussing with the code it displays every image in it's own table rather than adding the row breaks after every fourth image.

include_once "connect.php";
$userid = $_SESSION['id'];
$albumid = $_GET['album'];

I have the basic PhP code (insert.php):

So, what I want to make is when I click on submit to display a message (succesful or error) in the same page with form.
