Combining Two Queries

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I have two scripts that each work fine by themselves. One is a search script with a variable that depends on what people search for. That will display results, but they are in a single column. I want to be able to paginate the results and have 4 columns across. I have a script that will do the pagination and it works by itself. What I want is the search results to be displayed in the 4 columns across with the pagination. I'm not familiar enough with programming to merge these two. Can anyone help me out?

Script 1 is the search form.

Code: <?php

include 'myconnectinfo.php';

$cxn = mysql_connect($host,$user,$password)
or die ("couldn't connect to server");
// $database = "mydatabase_name";

$keyword= $_POST['keyword'];
$upperKeyword = strtoupper($keyword);

$query = "(SELECT * FROM cjstores WHERE upper(NAME) like '%$upperKeyword%' ORDER BY NAME)";
$result = mysql_query($query)
or die ("Couldn't execute query.");
if(! $result){
$message = "no results";
$message = "Sorry, no matching results.";
$found = mysql_num_rows($result);
if($found == 0){
echo "No products were found with that name. Please try another name.";

/* Display results in a table */
echo "<table cellspacing='10'>";
echo "<tr><td colspan='3'><hr /></td></tr>";
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
echo "<TABLE cellpadding='10' width='40%'><tr>n
<td width='200'><img src='$IMAGEURL' border ='0' alt='$NAME'><br clear='all'><P><font size='2'>
<a href='$BUYURL'>$NAME</a></td>n
<td width='100'></td>n
echo "<tr><td colspan='2'><hr /></td></tr>n";
echo "</table>n";

SCRIPT 2 displays based on my sql query - I want this to be base on the user input?
Code: <?php


$database = "giftidea_gifts";

$cxn = mysql_connect($host,$user,$password)

or die ("couldn't connect to server");

$conn = mysql_connect('localhost','user','pass') or trigger_error("SQL", E_USER_ERROR);
$db = mysql_select_db('databasename',$conn) or trigger_error("SQL", E_USER_ERROR);

// find out how many rows are in the table
$sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM cjstores WHERE ADVERTISERCATEGORY LIKE '%Necklaces & Pendants%'";
$result = mysql_query($sql, $cxn) or trigger_error("SQL", E_USER_ERROR);
$r = mysql_fetch_row($result);
$numrows = $r[0];

// number of rows to show per page
$rowsperpage = 4;
// find out total pages
$totalpages = ceil($numrows / $rowsperpage);

// get the current page or set a default
if (isset($_GET['currentpage']) && is_numeric($_GET['currentpage'])) {
// cast var as int
$currentpage = (int) $_GET['currentpage'];
} else {
// default page num
$currentpage = 1;
} // end if

// if current page is greater than total pages...
if ($currentpage > $totalpages) {
// set current page to last page
$currentpage = $totalpages;
} // end if
// if current page is less than first page...
if ($currentpage < 1) {
// set current page to first page
$currentpage = 1;
} // end if

// the offset of the list, based on current page
$offset = ($currentpage - 1) * $rowsperpage;

// get the info from the db
$sql = "SELECT BUYURL, IMAGEURL, NAME, DESCRIPTION FROM cjstores WHERE ADVERTISERCATEGORY LIKE '%Necklaces & Pendants%' LIMIT $offset, $rowsperpage";
$result = mysql_query($sql, $conn) or trigger_error("SQL", E_USER_ERROR);

define ("NUMCOLS", 4);


$count = 0;

echo "<table class='mytable' width='60%' cellpadding='0' cellspacing='0'>";

while ($list = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))


if ($count % NUMCOLS == 0) echo "<tr>n"; # new row

echo " <td align='center' valign='top' class='mytable'><a href=". $list['BUYURL'] . " class='mypage'><img src=" . $list['IMAGEURL'] . " border='0' alt='NAME'>
<font face='arial' size='1'>" . $list['NAME'] . "</a>
<table><tr><td><font size='1'></td><tr></table></td>";


if ($count % NUMCOLS == 0) echo "</tr>n"; # end row


# end row if not already ended

if ($count % NUMCOLS != 0) {

while ($count++ % NUMCOLS) echo "<td>&nbsp;</td>";

echo "</tr>n";


echo "</table>";

/****** build the pagination links ******/
// range of num links to show
$range = 4;

// if not on page 1, don't show back links
if ($currentpage > 1) {
// show << link to go back to page 1
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?currentpage=1'><<</a> ";
// get previous page num
$prevpage = $currentpage - 1;
// show < link to go back to 1 page
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?currentpage=$prevpage'><</a> ";
} // end if

// loop to show links to range of pages around current page
for ($x = ($currentpage - $range); $x < (($currentpage + $range) + 1); $x++) {
// if it's a valid page number...
if (($x > 0) && ($x <= $totalpages)) {
// if we're on current page...
if ($x == $currentpage) {
// 'highlight' it but don't make a link
echo " [<b>$x</b>] ";
// if not current page...
} else {
// make it a link
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?currentpage=$x'>$x</a> ";
} // end else
} // end if
} // end for

// if not on last page, show forward and last page links
if ($currentpage != $totalpages) {
// get next page
$nextpage = $currentpage + 1;
// echo forward link for next page
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?currentpage=$nextpage'>></a> ";
// echo forward link for lastpage
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?currentpage=$totalpages'>>></a> ";
} // end if
/****** end build pagination links ******/

Thank you
