Hello, please help me sold this issue. It can read the content on the MySql table but when I change the value on the input, then click on Submit, nothing is updated on the table. I don't know why.

        global $wpdb, $current_user;

        $user_id = get_current_user_id();

        $sql = 'SELECT `slot`, `id` FROM ab_staff WHERE `wp_user_id` = "' . (int)$user_id. '"';

        $member_slot = $wpdb->get_results( $sql );


        $d = get_object_vars($member_slot_1);

        $member_slot_2= $d['slot'];

        $member_slot_3= $d['id'];
if(isset($_POST["submit"])) {
$slot_time = $_POST['member_slot'];
$command = "UPDATE ab_staff SET `slot` = '$slot_time' WHERE `id` ='$member_slot_3'";
$result = $wpdb->get_results($command); 
print_r ($slot_time);
<label class="control-label" for="ab-staff-member"><?php _e( 'Time Slot', 'ab') ?></label>
<form action="<?php $_PHP_SELF ?>" method="post">
<select id="member_slot" name="member_slot">
<option value="900" <?php  if ( $member_slot_2 == 900) { echo 'selected=\"selected\"'; }; ?>>15 minutes</option>
<option value="1200" <?php  if ( $member_slot_2 == 1200) { echo 'selected=\"selected\"'; }; ?>>20 minutes</option>
<option value="1800" <?php  if ( $member_slot_2 == 1800) { echo 'selected=\"selected\"'; }; ?>>30 minutes</option>
<option value="2700" <?php  if ( $member_slot_2 == 2700) { echo 'selected=\"selected\"'; }; ?>>45 minutes</option>
<option value="3600" <?php  if ( $member_slot_2 == 3600) { echo 'selected=\"selected\"'; }; ?>>60 minutes</option>
<input name="submit" type="submit" value="<?php _e( 'Submit', 'xoousers' ); ?>">

Paul-lucas, I don't know which framework or cms you are using, but I think the get results method only selects information from the database.

Updating the database only affects rows but does not output any results.

So kindly look into your framework's or cms' docs and get the method/function used for updating the database.


Thank you, I'm using Wordpress. I'm trying to look for anothers method. But, do you know how to update the database without refreshing the page?


Yh, but you must use ajax. Here you setup a new php file which will process the form and then ajax will make the asynchronous / background work for you.

Edited by Gideon_1: additional info



$command = "UPDATE ab_staff SET `slot` = '$slot_time' WHERE `id` ='$member_slot_3'";
$result = $wpdb->get_results($command); 

this code with

$wpdb->update('ab_staff', array( 'slot' => $slot_time), array( 'id' => $member_slot_3));
