Hello everyone,

I’ve created a sql based search feature and have successfully created the following DB:
Create database users;


And I’ve successfully created the following tables:
insert into users set
title="example",
description="example description example description example description example description",
url="www.mclexa.com",
status="certified",
file="none",
keywords="happy sad glad mad jump high low fast slow"


I then successfully modified the following sql search script to quiry the DB and return the results of the search and paginate the pages using this script:
<?
//This is only displayed if they have submitted the form
if ($searching =="yes")
{
echo "<h2>Results</h2><p>";
//If they did not enter a search term we give them an error
if ($find == "")
{
echo "<p>You forgot to enter a search term";
exit;
}
// Otherwise we connect to our Database
$hostname_logon = "localhost" ;
$database_logon = "data base name" ;
$username_logon = "user name" ;
$password_logon = "my password" ;
//open database connection
$connections = mysql_connect($hostname_logon, $username_logon, $password_logon) or die ( "Unabale to connect to the database" );
//select database
mysql_select_db($database_logon) or die ( "Unable to select database!" );

// We preform a bit of filtering
$find = strtoupper($find);
$find = strip_tags($find);
$find = trim ($find);
//__________________________________________________ _______________________________
//This checks to see if there is a page number. If not, it will set it
//to page 1
if (!(isset($pagenum)))
{
$pagenum = 1;
}
//__________________________________________________ _______________________________
//Now we search for our search term, in the field the user specified
$data = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE upper($field) LIKE'%$find%'");
$rows = mysql_num_rows($data);
//__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
//This is the number of results displayed per page
$page_rows = 10;
//This tells us the page number of our last page
$last = ceil($rows/$page_rows);
//this makes sure the page number isn't below one, or more than
//our maximum pages
if ($pagenum < 1)
{
$pagenum = 1;
}
elseif ($pagenum > $last)
{
$pagenum = $last;
}
//This sets the range to display in our query
$max = 'limit ' .($pagenum - 1) * $page_rows .',' .$page_rows;
//__________________________________________________ ____________________
//Now we search for our search term, in the field the user specified
$data_p = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE upper($field) LIKE'%$find%'");
//This is where you display your query results
while($info = mysql_fetch_array( $data_p ))
{
Print $info['title'];
echo "<br>";
Print $info['status'];
echo "<br>";
Print $info['description'];
echo "<br>";
Print $info['url'];
echo "<br>";
Print "";
echo "<br>";
Print "";
echo "<br>";
Print "";
echo "<br>";
}
// This shows the user what page they are on, and the total
//number of pages
echo " --Page $pagenum of $last-- <p>";
// First we check if we are on page one. If we are then we don't
//need a link to the previous page or the first //page so we do
//nothing. If we aren't then we generate links to the first page,
//and to the previous page.
if ($pagenum == 1)
{
}
else
{
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=1'> <<-First</a> ";
echo " ";
$previous = $pagenum-1;
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$previous'> <-Previous</a> ";
}
//just a spacer
echo " ";
//This does the same as above, only checking if we are on the
//last page, and then generating the Next and Last //links
if ($pagenum == $last)
{
}
else {
$next = $pagenum+1;
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$next'>Next -></a> ";
echo " ";
echo " <a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}?pagenum=$last'>Last ->></a> ";
}
}
?>



QUESTIONS:
1. How do you alter the scripts code to provide a text format similar to that illustrated at the link below?
http://www.mclexa.com/examplesearchresult.html

2. How do I connect a link to the variable entered into the “title” field to cause a url jump to the variable url entered into the "url" field?

3. How do you alter the scripts code to provide a link to 1 of 2 possible urls based entirely upon the value stored in the “status” coulumb? Example: if “status” contains the word pending - connect a link to the word “pending” that will cause a jump to http://www.mclexa.com/pending.html.
if “status” contains the word certified - connect a link to the word “certified” that will cause a jump to http://www.mclexa.com/certified.html.

4. When the words "VIEW DOCUMENT" are clicked - how do I cause a pop up window to appear and display the PDF or JPEG document entered and stored in the “file” field?

Forever in your dept!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
