update post issues


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

I am trying to create an update to a post function, while the update does occur, the page routing and selecting of posts to be updated is whats getting screwed up. I have so many files involved in this whole mess that I didnt know where to start with what. So I went to the trouble of creating a reference page summing up each file, variable, and included file to trace where elements are going.

My website link is:

http://royalvillicus.com/post_ads/controller_posts.php/

I have error reporting on as you will notice.

things to pay attention to:

the url - when clicking on the edit post it will try to access a post id that does not exist

saving changes - url will add a "update" to the end of it. This is meant to be a temp page thanking user for updating page then redirect to list of all posts created which is not happening. This occurs in post_update.php

The link I sent - it is suppose to hold a list of the posts created. Currently there are two in my database. Only the first one is showing.


Here is my reference page:

$post
foreach($posts as $post) {
include_once('_post.php');}
[<a href="<?php echo APP_ROOT; ?>controller_posts.php/<?php echo $post['id']; ?>/edit">edit post</a>]




This may seem like a lot, atleast it does for me, hopefully this summary I created will prove helpful in what to do next.

I appreciate the help in the matter
