Linking Issue

Hi

I have made a comment system for my website. Although the system works fine I have found an issue.

When a user submits a comment, they can add a url to their website.

In the posted comments, the name of the user is set up to be a link to the url field in the database.

The problem is if the user does not submit a url with their comment the link still appears and links to a blank page.

How to I make it so the name field only has a link is a link is submitted with a comment

Thanks in advance

by using an if statement around the anchor tag to only show if the recordset contains a link.

I would need a copy of your page to give you exact code to use.

change:

php:
<a href="<?php echo $row_Posts['URL']; ?>"><?php echo $row_Posts['URL']; ?></a>




to:

php:
<?php if($row_Posts['URL'] != "") { ?>

<a href="<?php echo $row_Posts['URL']; ?>"><?php echo $row_Posts['URL']; ?></a>
<?php }  ?>
