Hi guys hope your all well,

I want to put a quiz into my website that I'm doing. I've found some code for a Multiple Choice-True False Quiz

Here is the code, (yes I know its long and there are some reputation in it) You have to add questions by using a form to add either

Multiple Choice
or True False questions this is why there is so much code

this is the code

<?php

if(isset($_POST['desc'])){
    if(!isset($_POST['iscorrect']) || $_POST['iscorrect'] == ""){
        echo "Sorry, important data to submit your question is missing. Please press back in your browser and try again and make sure you select a correct answer for the question.";
        exit();
    }
    if(!isset($_POST['type']) || $_POST['type'] == ""){
        echo "Sorry, there was an error parsing the form. Please press back in your browser and try again";
        exit();
    }
    require_once("quiz/config.php");
    $question = $_POST['desc'];  

 $answer1 = $_POST['answer1'];  

 $answer2 = $_POST['answer2'];  

 $answer3 = $_POST['answer3'];  

 $answer4 = $_POST['answer4'];  

 $type = $_POST['type'];  

 $type = preg_replace('/[^a-z]/', "", $type);  

 $isCorrect = preg_replace('/[^0-9a-z]/', "", $_POST['iscorrect']);  

 $answer1 = strip_tags($answer1);  

 $answer1 = mysql_real_escape_string($answer1);  

 $answer2 = strip_tags($answer2);  

 $answer2 = mysql_real_escape_string($answer2);  

 $answer3 = strip_tags($answer3);  

 $answer3 = mysql_real_escape_string($answer3);  

 $answer4 = strip_tags($answer4);  

 $answer4 = mysql_real_escape_string($answer4);  

 $question = strip_tags($question);

When I try and add a question via the true/false button I get the following error

Notice: Undefined index: answer3 in C:\xampp\htdocs\quiz\addQuestions.php on line 16

Notice: Undefined index: answer4 in C:\xampp\htdocs\quiz\addQuestions.php on line 17
No database selected

Any help or advice would be much appreciated

A classic case of writing 269 lines of code and then going to your web browser to check it and expecting it all to work.

Here's a tip... do one bit at a time.

Step 1. Check you have made a db connection
Step 2. Do a simple select statement
Step 3. Pull those values into a dropdown box.

etc.

^ and put all of that repeated code into functions:

function validate($var){
    $clean = strip_tags($var);  
    $clean = mysql_real_escape_string($clean); 
    return $clean;
}

And if it says answer3 undefined, it probably means there is no answer3 field being submitted to the page, so I'd start by checking that!!
