how do I check if a user has entered a number?
Like I don't want them to enter a number

so I'm trying to do



else if($firstNameSignUp IS A NUMBER)) {
$firstNameSignUpError = "Your first name cannot be a number you entered " . $firstNameSignUp;
$firstNameSignUp = "";
}


how can I do this?

use is_int

if(is_int($str)){
echo 'number';
}

but then what if the user enters their name as 3.141592654, or s1, or even worse $ ?

im now trying to work with

if(!preg_match("/^[\w-]+$/", $firstNameSignup)) {
$firstNameSignupError = "Your first name cannot contain numbers or symbols, you entered " . $firstNameSignup;
$firstNameSignup = "";
}

but its not working =[

if (preg_match('#[^a-z]+$#i', $firstNameSignup)) {


you are slowly becoming my best friend lol thanks!!!




if (preg_match('#[^a-z]+$#i', $firstNameSignup)) {


ok one more question...

what if they could use numbers and letters but not symbols except - and _?

oh ya and for e-mail

how will that work

letters+@+letters+.+2-4letters

Numbers, letters, underscore and hyphen:



'#^[^\w\-]$#i'


E-mail:



'#^[\w\.\+\-]{1,}@(?:[\w\-]+\.){1,}[a-z]{2,4}$#i'

It can't be passing anything else. \w only covers underscore, letters and numbers.
