Conditional Redirect in Update Statement

Thread began 2/04/2011 11:30 am by bjgarner241692 | Last modified 2/04/2011 2:34 pm by bjgarner241692 | 1175 views | 8 replies


Nice catch - I'm guilt of copying that if statement from another page and not changing the rs name.

Works perfectly now - go figure!

Thank you again. It is great to have a second set of eyes with this stuff.

I want to share something else I did on this page that I think would serve others as well.

I cannot have people coming BACK to this page, becuase it will trigger the visit count, so I added another counter, based on session values.


$_SESSION['views'] = $_SESSION['views']+ 1;
$_SESSION['views'] = 1;

Then, I wrapped the FORM tags with

<?php if ($_SESSION['views'] == 1) { // Adv Conditional Region ?>

... form stuff ....

  <?php // $_SESSION['views'] == 1 ?>

Works perfectly and is a much simpler way of preventing the inadvertent post of data than anything else I could find online.

If someone backs out of the confirmation page, they just see a blank page (with navigation) when they get back to this counting page, and since there is no form, there is no update.
