multipple update not working

multipple update not working


On the attached update page, I have 3 tabbed panels, the third of which enables the user to upload images and then displays previously uploaded images that will be used in a 'slideshow'.

I want to the user to be able to update any of the descriptive text of the images (title, alt text) and to change the order in which they're displayed (numeric entry in the field). However, I can't get the 'update multiple records' thing to work! I have removed it, re-applied it and played with it countless times, to no avail.

Can anyone spot something obvious? Are there too many other things happening on that page (in other tabs) that in some way are preventing this working?

Many thanks

one of the values you are using in the multiple update is the pg_id column of the WADApage_content recordset.

the WADApage_content recordset uses the pg URL Variable for filtering. When the page first loads, that variable is present, but your forms action does not send that variable when you post the form. when the form is posted, that recordset is recreated, and since the pg URL Variable no longer exists, the recordset is empty.

use the following code for the form action so that it will retain any url variables passed in:

 action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != ""?"?".htmlentities($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"], ENT_QUOTES):""); ?>"
