Delete button on details page isn't deleting

Hi Ray, I'm in the process of amalgamating three sites into one on a new domain and moving over a load of DA pages. Most of this has been fairly straightforward but I've found one detail page where the delete behavior isn't working.

I tried removing and re-adding it, and also went as far as recreating a set of DA pages so that I could lift the raw delete behavior code from the new page to make sure the syntax was correct, but no luck. Would you mind taking a look at the page for me? No error message given either, it just doesn't delete.

It looks like it would work to me. Does the delete popup open and button appear to work? I'd probably have to debug this live with a url and ftp information.

Yes, the popup appears and it redirects back to the results page, but just doesn't delete the record. Details are in the PM.

The issue is in your select statement... you have:

SELECT CPD.CPD_ID, para_users.CPD_ID, ...

You are selecting two columns name CPD_ID. The second one overwrites the first, so the recordset returns the CPD_ID from the users table and that record doesn't match the CPD table when it goes to delete.

I don't think you are using the CPD_ID from the users table on that page, so I think you can just remove it and make your recordset:

SELECT CPD.CPD_ID, Course_name, ...

That should make it return the correct ID and the delete would work.

Yes, that's what the problem was! Working now.

On another, purely cosmetic note, I have an htaccess rule set up so that I can dispense with the .php file extensions. When logging in though, I find that the .php extension is added back automatically to the page the user is redirected to. Is there any way to change this? So for example, user clicks link to protected page:

www.mysite.co.uk/members --> redirected to www.mysite.co.uk/login --> is then redirected to www.mysite.co.uk/members.php. I want them to be taken to www.mysite.co.uk/members instead.

Not a big deal, but Google Analytics does then view these as separate pages i.e. members and members.php

It should redirect back to the url used to access the page in the first place. The code uses: $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] as the return page redirect.

Maybe you have it set to members.php on the login page? In that case you may be able to find and replace the reference there.
