Post Article On Site With Update And Delete Functions In PHP

This article explains how to post articles on a site and if you want to update or delete an article then you can also do these operations in PHP.

Introduction

This article explains how to post articles on a site and if you want to update or delete an article then you can also do these operations in PHP. Let's begin creating it. You will first need a table for storing article contents and then you will create a connection with your table.

This is your article table.

table artitecture

And the next step is your connection file for a connection with your database.

<?php

$hostname="localhost";

$username="root";

$password="";

$database_name="demo";

mysql_connect("$hostname", "$username", "$password")or die("cannot connect");

mysql_select_db("$database_name")or die("cannot select DB");

?>

 

Then you will create a "post.php" file and write code for posting the article and store the content into the table.


Example
 

<html>

<head>

<style type="text/css">

textarea{

border: 1px solid #ECCCCE;

padding: 2px;

}body{

color: #408800;

}

</style>

</head>

<body>

<?php

ini_set('display_errors',0);

include'connect.php';

if(isset($_POST['Submit'])){

$title=$_POST['title'];

$descr=$_POST['descr'];

$keyword=$_POST['keyword'];

$content=$_POST['content'];

$category=$_POST['category'];

$query="INSERT into article values('','$title','$descr','$keyword','$content','','$category')";

$result=mysql_query($query)or die(mysql_error());

if($result){

echo "Successful Post your article...";

echo "<BR>";

echo "<a href='article.php'>View Your post artcile</a>";

}

else

{

echo "Error in your sql query please check again!";

}}

?>

<form name="form1" method="post" action="">

<div style="width:600px; margin:auto;">

<p><strong>Title:</strong></p><p><textarea name="title"  id="title" cols="40" rows="2"></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Description:</strong></p><p><textarea name="descr"  id="descr" cols="40" rows="2"></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Keyword:</strong></p><p><textarea name="keyword"  id="keyword" cols="40" rows="2"></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Category:</strong></p><p><select name="category">Please select category

                                                              <option value="php">php</option>

                                                              <option value="ASP">ASP</option>

                                                              <option value="JSP">JSP</option>

                                                              <option value="iPHONE">iPHONE</option>

                                    </select></p>

<p><strong>Content:</strong></p><p><textarea name="content"  id="content" cols="40" rows="10"></textarea></p>

<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Post" style="color: #08322A; float: right; margin: 0px 254px;padding: 1px 11px;">

</div>

</form>

</body>

</html>


Output

submission form

And the next process is the article review and to create a file article.php and write the review code.

Example

<html>

<head>

<style type="text/css">

textarea{

border: 1px solid #ECCCCE;

padding: 2px;

}body{

color: #69928E;

}strong{

color:#333333;

font-weight: normal;

}

</style>

</head>

<body>

<?php

include'connect.php';

$query="SELECT * FROM article";

$result=mysql_query($query);

?>

<?php

while($rows=mysql_fetch_array($result)){

?>

<div style="width:600px; margin:auto;"><spam><a href="edit.php?id=<?php echo $rows['id']; ?>">Edit</a></spam>&nbsp;<spam><a href="delete.php?id=<?php echo $rows['id']; ?>">Delete</a></spam>&nbsp;<spam><a href="post.php">Post</a></spam></div>

<div style="width:600px; margin:auto;">

<p><strong>Title:</strong></p><p><?php echo $rows['title']; ?></p>

<p><strong>Description:</strong></p><p><?php echo $rows['descr']; ?></p>

<p><strong>Keyword:</strong></p><p><?php echo $rows['keyword']; ?></p>

<p><strong>Content:</strong></p><p><?php echo $rows['content']; ?></p>

</div>

<?php

}

?>

<?php

mysql_close();

?>

</body>

</html>

}

</style>

</head>

<body>

<?php

include'connect.php';

$id=$_GET['id'];

$query="SELECT * FROM article WHERE id='$id'";

$result=mysql_query($query);

$rows=mysql_fetch_array($result);

?>

<form name="form1" method="post" action="update.php">

<div style="width:600px; margin:auto;">

<p><strong>Title:</strong></p><p><textarea name="title"  id="title" cols="40" rows="2"><?php echo $rows['title']; ?></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Description:</strong></p><p><textarea name="descr"  id="descr" cols="40" rows="2"><?php echo $rows['descr']; ?></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Keyword:</strong></p><p><textarea name="keyword"  id="keyword" cols="40" rows="2"><?php echo $rows['keyword']; ?></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Content:</strong></p><p><textarea name="content"  id="content" cols="40" rows="10"><?php echo $rows['content']; ?></textarea></p>

<p><strong>Type reason:</strong></p><p><input type="text" name="reason"  id="reason" value="<?php echo $rows['reason']; ?>"></p>

<input name="id" type="hidden" id="id" value="<?php echo $rows['id']; ?>">

<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Update" style="color: #08322A; float: right; margin: -44px 254px;padding: 1px 11px;">

</div>

</form>

ini_set('display_errors',0);

include'connect.php';

//query with sql

if(!empty($_POST['reason'])){

$query="UPDATE article SET

title='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['title'])."',

descr='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['descr'])."',

keyword='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['keyword'])."',

content='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['content'])."',  reason='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['reason'])."' WHERE  id='".mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['id'])."'";

$result=mysql_query($query)or die(mysql_error());

if($result){

echo "Successful Update your record...";

echo "<BR>";

echo "<a href='article.php'>View Your updated data</a>";

}

else

{

echo "Error in your sql query please check again!";

}}else{

echo 'please type the reason';

}

?>


Output

view updated data

And finally you will create a "delete.php" file for deleting an article, such as in the following:

Example

 

<?php

ini_set('display_errors',0);

include'connect.php';

$query="DELETE FROM article WHERE id='".$_GET['id']."'";

$result= mysql_query($query)or die(mysql_error());

if($result){

echo "Successful delete your record...";

echo "<BR>";

echo "<a href='article.php'>View Your updated data</a>";

}

else

{

echo "Error in your sql query please check again!";

}
