View Full Version : Multipurpose page won't delete!

08-12-2008, 09:25 PM
I am trying to create a multipurpose page that makes sure the user wants to delete. However it does not seem to be passing event code to the page, can you see the problem?


if (isset($_GET['delete'])) // If the user wants to delete an event

//Connect to the database server
$dbcnx = @mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'els6014');
if (!$dbcnx)
exit('<p>Unable to connect to the ' .
'database server at this time.</p>');

//select the prototype database
if (!@mysql_select_db('prototype'))
exit('<p>Unable to locate the ARD ' .
'database at this time.</p>');
// Delete the event event from the events table
// and also delete that events from the attendance table.
$EventCode = $_GET['EventCode'];
$ok1 = @mysql_query("DELETE FROM events WHERE EventCode='$EventCode'");
$ok2 = @mysql_query("DELETE FROM attendance WHERE EventCode='$EventCode'");
if ($ok1 and $ok2)
echo '<p>Event deleted successfully!</p>';
echo '<p>Error deleting Event from database!<br />'.
'Error: ' . mysql_error() . '</p>';
echo '<p><a href="viewallevents.php">Return to view all events</a></p>';

else // Default page display

echo '<p> Are you sure you would like to delete this event? </p>';

// When clicked, this link will delete the event
echo '<p><a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] .

//If the user changes their mind it will bring them bact to vie all events
echo '<p><a href="viewallevents.php">Cancel</a></p>';

none working code aside you have to make sure your filter your database input.

function clean($foo)
return $foo;
$_GET = array_map("clean",$_GET);

just something quick like this.

lines 24-25

$ok1 = @mysql_query("DELETE FROM events WHERE EventCode='".$EventCode."'");
$ok2 = @mysql_query("DELETE FROM attendance WHERE EventCode='".$EventCode."'");

line 45
