Conditional Update - Only update certain field if another field has been changed

Thread began 8/25/2014 6:43 pm by dlovas275157 | Last modified 9/08/2014 11:45 am by dlovas275157 | 1189 views | 5 replies


I have my permalinks working well, there is just 1 small issue surrunding the update.php page and the increment/count when a record with the same tilte already exists.

Here is in detail the issue:

If I create a career listing and enter a title of "My Title", the insert works great. If I update that listing, it updates correctly and only changes the "careerPermalink" field if the "careerTitle" field has changed, and it only increments if needed. If i add a second entry with the same name, it will increment it properly with -1 as expected.

Problem occurs when you enter two careers with identical titles, and then immediately update the second entry for the very first time without changing anything (it will increment it from -1 to -2 when not needed).

Since this is a little hard to follow, I have provided in the private message area, access to my pages so you can add/update and hopefully see easier what is going on. Add 2 records witht he same careerTitle, and then immediately update the second one without making any changes, you will see the un-needed increment. Repeated updates after this update are not problematic.
