Thanks for your patience, i'm still trying to learn I've gotten most of my stuff on my website to work, but i'm trying to do one more thing
I have a WORKING insertion script for a mysql database using a php page that forces the CharName in the database to match their site username. Additionally I have a WORKING update script that will allow a user to update their information.
What I need is a if/else for the following situation
User clicks 'insert new data' their CharName exists in the database so instead of loading the INSERT NEW page it redirects them to the UPDATE page.
Ex. JohnDoe has already input their character information into the database. The next time they click the 'insert.php' link the site would see 'this user has already a record in the database' and sends them to the 'update.php' page instead.
JohnDoe actually has not got a record under his name in the database and the 'insert.php' page allows them to continue loading the insert page.
I'm sorry if thats confusing at all but I've searched all over to find what I need in order to make this work. Please help I would greatly appreciate it. And feel free to ask any additional questions you need to. Thanks much.
