PHP Delete Confirmation Message

Aug 17, 2007

Is there a way in php to create a confirmation box when a user does something like delete a row from a database? I'm trying to get away w/o using javascript to pull this off, but I don't know if it's possible.  Right now I've just got it set up to delete when the link is clicked, but I don't find that to be a safe enough practice considering how easy it would be to screw up. 


Displaying An Update Confirmation Message

Feb 8, 2007

How is it possible to display, within a page, a short text message of my choosing to confirm that after selecting submit, the details have successfully been updated. This will need to be displayed on a useradmin page which confirms details from various tables including the users table and job history tables.

Applying Form Confirmation Message

Feb 16, 2009

Now, I have created a form, the problem is I cannot get the confirmation message to appear after the user has submitted the form.

This is the problem:

When I put the PHP code and the validation message in a separate PHP page it works perfectly, the problem with this method is I do-not know how to add the validation when the form script is in a separate page.

But when I add the script and the XHTML code on the same page, I can add the validation but the confirmation message appears when the form loads in the browser with the form - before the user has even submitted it.

How can I add confirmation message to this form after the user has submitted it?

Complete code without confirmation page.

$post = array("firstName" => "","lastName" => "","Email" => "","phoneNumber" => "","comments" => "");
$errors = $post;
if (isset($_POST["send"]))
foreach ($post as $k => $v)

Confirmation Dialog Box For Delete

Apr 8, 2009

I am trying to implement a confirmation dialog box before deleting a record in a table that have. I created a MYSQL table called manager with columns:

Table manager

I use a while loop to display the records of every manager in the database a "delete this manager" link next to each record. If the user clicks the "delete this manager" a html form is called prompting the user if he wants indeed to delete that manager. If yes,I get the following error: Error deleting manager: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 2 Here are extracts of my code(manager.php):

$result = @mysql_query('SELECT managerID,FirstName,LastName,Department FROM manager');

Modify Header Information - Don't Get Confirmation Message

May 8, 2006

I have a page (next) which pulls in some detail from a database, which are then made into active links, clicking on one brings up the complete record in a form (comletelist) so that it can be edited. Pressing the save button updates the record and then should redirect to the page (next)with the original list, giving a 'database updated' message and displaying the active links again.

The database is updating, but I don't get my confirmation message, only the error message below.

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /chroot/home/TM340484/public_html/blog/completelist.php:18) in /chroot/home/TM340484/public_html/blog/completelist.php on line 87

Html - Displaying A Confirmation Message After Doing A Query?

Apr 8, 2011

I am trying to call a function with Javascript, HTML, AJAX, and PHP.I am still new to Javascript, AJAX, and PHP.Background info: I am trying to add a new customer to my database but I am now trying to get a confirmation message on the same page without the page refreshing.

This is what I have:

<script type="text/javascript">
function addCustomer(ln,fn,pn,dob)
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
{// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();

What am I doing wrong? :) I do not want the page to refresh. I am trying to just get the confirmation or non-confirmation to display.

Display Form Confirmation Message In The Same Page?

Sep 28, 2010

I've seen this behaviour in many websites and web applications but I'm not able to find a "clean and standard" way to reproduce it: the user fills in the form, submits it and then, after a successful validation, the form is reloaded with a message on top saying something like "The item has been saved". No problems so far, what I can't understand is how they keep displaying the confirmation message if that specific page is reloaded, but when the user goes to another page and then returns to the original one (the one containing the form) the message is not there anymore. There seems to be no get or post data, so I'm assuming session variables or cookies are used instead, but how do they know when to keep and when to unset them? Or maybe I'm wrong and there is some other way..

Generating Confirmation Code For An Email Confirmation?

Jan 18, 2010

Using PHP, what are some ways to generate a random confirmation code that can be stored in a DB and be used for email confirmation? I can't for the life of me think of a way to generate a unique number that can be generated from a user's profile. That way I can use a function to make the number small enough to be included in the URL (see this link). Remember, the user has to click on the link to "confirm/activate" his/her account. If I can't use numbers, I have no problems using both letters and numbers.With that said, I've tried hashing the username along with a "salt" to generate the random code. I know there has to be a better way, so let's hear it.

Hash Confirmation

Jan 7, 2006

I found an open source mailing list script which I am changing around a bit.

I have set it up so that when they type in their email it stores their email on a flatfile database as their email and hash with two pipes. Like so:


They are sent a link for confirmation. The link contains the md5 code under variable "id".

Now the subscribe page looks kinda like this:


$tmpinfo = file("tmp.txt");
$emailhash = $_GET["id"];
$emailemail = $_GET["email"];
foreach($tmpinfo as $key => $val)
$data[$key] = explode("¦¦", $val);
for($k = 0; $k < sizeof($tmpinfo); $k++)
$tmpemail = $tmpemailfromflatfile;
$tmphash = $tmphashfromflatfile;
if (($_GET["action"] == "add")&&($tmphash == $emailhash))

$fp = fopen("subscribers.txt", "r");
$file_text = fread($fp, 999999);
$subscribers = explode(",",$file_text);
foreach($subscribers as $subscriber)
if($subscriber == $_GET["email"])
$result = 1;
$result = 0;
if($result == 1)
$msg = "<h3>Sorry, we cannot add you as... you already exist on this list...</h3>";
$fp = fopen("newsletter/data/subscribers.txt", "a+");
fwrite($fp, $_GET["email"] . ",");
$msg = "<h3>You have been added to the newsletter. Thanks!</h3>";
else {
die ('no');
$page="about"; include ("inc/files/header.php");?>
<!-- content -->
<div id="content"><?php echo "$msg";?></div>
<!-- // content -->
<?php include ("inc/files/footer.php");?>

The problem is that I am not sure it is looking up the email id and the tmp.txt id to match it. If it is, then it appears it doesn't do anything if they don't.

What I am aiming for is that if the email id hash is the same as the one stored for that particular email (under tmp.txt) tnen it adds them to the subscribers.txt file, otherwise it comes up with an error.

Email Confirmation

Jun 21, 2007

I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I am trying to set up a registration form. Currently, when submitted, the form writes the user's info to a database and sends out an email with thier registration details. I want the user to confirm thier registration details while also confirming that their email exists by clicking on a link that is sent in the confirmation email. How do I generate that link? Is it called "hashing"?

Furthermore, once I figure out how to generate that link should I have my database set up with two tables? One for "unconfirmed" users and one for users that have "confirmed" through email. Should the link in the email write the users details to the "confirmed" table in the database?

Confirmation Redirect

Oct 23, 2007

I recently posted regarding problems we're experiencing when displaying confirmation messages after a database event (say an UPDATE or INSERT), where if the visitor sits on their page and refreshes, we end up with duplicate or blank entries, or if the back button is used and they click OK to post data.

Any how, there were many responses (thank you) but I think the simple method we're going to use rather than trying to delve into session variables and comparing those (which is going to confuse me!) I have chosen to try the following. On every confirmation message, similar when logging into these Forums, it will show the displayed message for 10 seconds, and then automatically take the user back to another page which should hopefuly eliminate 95% of our problems.

The point of my post is to ask how the best way of doing this is? Javascript, or PHP? As not every page is going to have a redirect and each redirect will take the visitor to another place, I need it to work within <body> (it's not ideal for anything to be in <head>).
