To begin, I adore PHP. Wow.
The "problems" with PHP is not PHP, it's me, honestly.
I am having issues coding at times and a tad of frustration. But, I am receiving great results with reseach, help and hard work.
My current issue is rather simple I believe but I am yet to solve it:
Data is input into a page form then submitted > Data is loaded into a MySql DB. (This works perfecly.) :)
The issue now is how to call that specific data and display it, formatted on a new page. I'm stuck at this point.
- How do I return the exact User data from the DB and render it on a new page? Specific data: Via sessions, cookies, etc? I'm not sure. I can return and display randomized fields from the table and display them on the same page as the form upon refresh, but it is not the specific data just entered. This is confusing.
- I am reading about jQuery/Ajax to do this - Is that even necessary? I hesitate to implement too many scripting languages at once.
- I'm stuck. I simply wish to enter data, submit and have that data displayed for the User, the previous form not present.
- I need to redirect to a new page I presume. This is not working correctly. What is a "PHP header"?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am just trying to build a perfect product and I'm still learning.
Thank you in advance,
