only image path displays

Postby Helix » Sat May 07, 2011 5:35 pm

Whats up forum. First time here with maybe a newb question.
I have a gallery of pics and when you click a pic you get sent to this page.(the one I pasted) Problem is I can't get the image to display. I know it's a GET function or img src="" but I can't get it right. This is my output.
Name: gewqrgf photo: uploads/EmptyTwo.png state: wfe

This page is a template for all photos when clicked. I want to drag the info of the pic selected and the comments that come along with it (not included yet) but could use some advice on that too. Does that make sense?

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>What do you know about.......</title>


mysql_connect('.', ''', ''!') or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("'") or die(mysql_error());

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM photo")
or die(mysql_error()); 

// store the record of the "example" table into $row
$row = mysql_fetch_array( $result );

echo "Name: ".$row['name'];
echo " photo: ".$row['photopath'];
echo " state: ".$row['state'];

//$photopath = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['photpath']);
//$name = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['name']);
//$state = mysql_real_escape_string($_REQUEST['state']);

Hello Helix
On this case while you clicking a image in gallery which leads to the photo displaying page along with comments. So you have to pass an value to this page in URL like below

Code: Select all

<a href="phototemplate.php?photoid=1"><img src="image.jpg" /></a>

In phototemplate.php page get the value from URL and write an query to fetch the image as well as comments

Code: Select all

$query="SELECT * FROM photo where id=".$_REQUEST['photoid']."";

Hope this help you..For more details you can visit
Thank You
