create link from dynamic search result

create link from dynamic search result

Would like to have a search result link to another page.

I created a link field in the database: <a href="linkpage.php">My bio page</a>

Attached is my attempt at altering the server behaviors to add a search and result to the table without having to recreate all the pages over again.

When viewed online, no result.

Also thought about adding a new detail page, but don't see how to do that without starting the whole process over again.

Thanks

dont use a link in the database for creating the detail page.




the way the results to detail page works is that a link to the detail page is created that passes the records id as a querystring:

<a href="details.php?id=<?php echo($row_WADAMembers['id']); ?>detail</a>


on the detail page, a recordset is created to filter the ID column on the id querystring variable.



you would be better of creating the new search results and detail page using the wizard, then examining how they are created to gain an understanding of the working so you can create it manually.

How does new Detail page work with existing Search/Result pages

Tried creating a new Results and Detail page, but can't grasp how, or if, the new Detail page works with the existing Search and Results pages. How do I link the existing Search and Result pages to a new Detail page without creating all new pages?

The existing page and two new pages are attached.

Thanks

the details page is looking for the ID to be passed in a querystring named ID, on the results page, create the link to the detail page like this:
<a href="Members_Detail.php?ID=<?php echo($row_WADAMembers['ID']); ?>" />Details</a>

Not sure what to do with this. When I use your code as the link, it says page not found. Is it supposed to act as the link or does it go somewhere else in the code, with the link as: Members_Detail.php?

Looks like my support ticket is working on this same page. Feel free to use a new support ticket for this post and the other if needed.

File attached.

Thanks
