search function


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

HI guys,

if anyone could point us in the right direction of how to do this, or provide some test code for a similar problem would be great!

Basically, I have user profiles on my site, and I have a search by for example firstnames will list all usernames with the first name 'bob'. With this list I want to turn the output of each name to a link to their profile.

the profile page is profile-view.php and I am using the statement "select username from members where firstname = $input";

and
$num_results = mysql_num_rows($result);


$username = $row['username'];

for ($i=0; $i <$num_results; $i++)
{
$num_found = $i ;
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);
echo "<a href='profile-view.php?username = $username'>{$row['username']}</a><br/>";
}

I know the <a href> wont work, but is there anyway of being able to do this, all usernames are unique across the site too thats why I thought the link it by this.

Thanks in advance
