Hi, I have made a script to search my database. But when I execute it, it shows only one result. I even checked the database but there were many entries like this.

here's the code...

<?php 

// Made by Shahbaz Singh July 2011. All Rights Reserved. Webdhaba.in

$q = $_GET["q"];

$db_host = "localhost";
// Place the username for the MySQL database here
$db_username = ""; 
// Place the password for the MySQL database here
$db_pass = ""; 
// Place the name for the MySQL database here
$db_name = "test";

// Run the connection here 
mysql_connect("$db_host","$db_username","$db_pass") or die ("could not connect to mysql");
mysql_select_db("$db_name") or die ("no database");
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM people WHERE name LIKE '%$q%'");

$num_results = 0;

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql))
{
$num_results++;
$name = $row["name"];

$id = $row["id"];

$default_pic = "people/$id/image01.jpg";

$no_pic = "people/0/no_image_pic.jpg";

if (file_exists($default_pic)) {

$image = "$default_pic"; } else {
$image = "$no_pic"; 

}

}

if($num_results == 0)
{
$output = "<table border='0' width='100%' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0' >
	<tr>
		<td colspan='2' height='24' >
		<p align='center'><b><font face='Arial' size='2'>Search Results</font></b></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td align='center' width='100%' >
		<font face='Arial' size='2'><br><br><br>Sorry, no results could be found.
		</font></b></td>
		</tr>
</table>";
} else {

$output = "<table border='0' width='100%' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0' >
	<tr>
		<td colspan='2' height='24' >
		<p align='center'><b><font face='Arial' size='2'>Search Results</font></b></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td width='67' >
		<b><font face='Arial' size='2'>
		<img border='0' src='$image' width='86' height='86'></font></b></td>
		<td width='967' >
		<b><font face='Arial' size='2'>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
		<a href='people.php?id=$id'>
		<span style='text-decoration: none'>$name
		</span></a></font></b></td>
	</tr>
</table>";
}
?>

You should use array to get the data withing the loop. If not, the second will override the first and the third will override the second and so on. Finally, you would have only result, the last one. Check Line 25,

$name = $row["name"];

Should be

$name[] = $row["name"];

All names will store in $name array match with your search keyword. If you have another variable to store like this, change it to array too.

Hey Zero13

Now it does not show the name, it shows "ARRAY"...

Please Help

Now, the name array has all matches with the keyword that the user search. Echo out the name with for loop.

for($i=0;$i<count($name);$i++){
      echo $name[$i] . '<br />';
}

You can also use 'foreach' method.

foreach($name as $user) {
       echo $user . '<br />';
}

Hope this help.

Try this.

<?php 

// Made by Shahbaz Singh July 2011. All Rights Reserved. Webdhaba.in

$q = $_GET["q"];

$db_host = "localhost";
// Place the username for the MySQL database here
$db_username = ""; 
// Place the password for the MySQL database here
$db_pass = ""; 
// Place the name for the MySQL database here
$db_name = "test";

// Run the connection here 
mysql_connect("$db_host","$db_username","$db_pass") or die ("could not connect to mysql");
mysql_select_db("$db_name") or die ("no database");
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM people WHERE name LIKE '%$q%'");

$num_results = mysql_num_rows($sql);
if($num_results > 0){
	$count=0;
	while($row = mysql_fetch_array($sql)){
		
		$users[$count]->name = $row["name"];

		$users[$count]->id = $row["id"];

		$default_pic = "people/$id/image01.jpg";

		$no_pic = "people/0/no_image_pic.jpg";

		if (file_exists($default_pic)) {
			$image = "$default_pic"; 
		} 
		else {
			$image = "no_pic";
		}
		$users[$count]->avatar = $image;
		
		$count++;
	}
	
	$output = "<table border='0' width='100%' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0' >
	<tr>
		<td colspan='2' height='24' >
		<p align='center'><b><font face='Arial' size='2'>Search Results</font></b></td>
	</tr>";
	
	foreach($users as $user){
	
		$output .= "<tr>
			<td width='67' >
			<b><font face='Arial' size='2'>
			<img border='0' src='$user->avatar' width='86' height='86'></font></b></td>
			<td width='967' >
			<b><font face='Arial' size='2'>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 
			<a href='people.php?id=$user->id"'>
			<span style='text-decoration: none'>$user->name
			</span></a></font></b></td>
			</tr>";
	}
}
else {
	$output = "<table border='0' width='100%' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='0' >
	<tr>
		<td colspan='2' height='24' >
		<p align='center'><b><font face='Arial' size='2'>Search Results</font></b></td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td align='center' width='100%' >
		<font face='Arial' size='2'><br><br><br>Sorry, no results could be found.
		</font></b></td>
		</tr>";
}
$output .= "</table>";
?>
?>
