Hi I am a newbie to PHP. i am having serious problems trying to pass the id to the next page via a hyperlink. i am creating a real estate website and after searching for a property the code below is displayed. this code basically should list all the properties. the properties should be hyperlinked so when you click it, it displays the full detail. So far the code only displays the name. how would i hyperlink the data with id sent to the next page?

ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APRECIATED.

<body>
<?
$username="proper_asik112";
$password="ashik112";
$database="proper_contacts";

mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password);
@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");
$result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM contacts
WHERE first=\''. $_POST.'\' And mobile=\''. $_POST.'\'');;


while($row=mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
echo $row . " " . $row . "<br />";
}

?>
</body>
</html>

use this:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM `contacts` WHERE `first1 = '" . $_POST['name'] . "' AND `mobile` = '" . $_POST['mobile'] . "'";
$query = mysql_query($sql);
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query)) {
  echo '<a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?id=' . $row['id'] . '">' . $row['first'] . ' ' . $row['last'] . '</a>';
}

then use $_GET to 'get' the id from the url and select the info from the database related to that id

I will explain you the logic what has to be done with an example and you can implement that in your script.

$results = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM f_category ORDER BY c_order DESC", $connection);
    $numrows = @mysql_num_rows($results);
    $x = 0;
    while ($x < $numrows) {
        $cid = stripslashes(mysql_result($results, $x, "c_id"));
        $cname = stripslashes(mysql_result($results, $x, "c_name"));
        echo "Property Name = <a href=deails.php?cid=$cid>$cname</a>";
        $x++;
        }

Now what this will do is print a list of property names and with their cid's as the hyperlink.
and you can use GET method in details.php to retrieve cid and print the results :)

it comes up with this error

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/proper/public_html/welcome.php on line 19

use all of this code, not pieces of it, or you will get errors.
