News Articles in PHP-Part1

Hi Fellows,

Now i’m here again came with some simple tutorial news article in php that performing adding and display the articles from the we need to create two php files .

Name one file as news.php and the other one as post.php

Okay if anyone  followed my previous tutorial means This one is very simple as the previous one so lets start with the post.php file here we are going to have one textbox for the title and a textarea for the body content of the news finally a submit button.

The code is very simple as below

//action refers to redirect when it click submit

//method passing the values from the form

<form action=”post.php” method=”post”>
TITLE:<br><input type=”text” name=”title”/> <p>
BODY:<br><textarea rows=”6″ cols=”40″ name=”body”></textarea><p>//textarea
<input type=”submit” name=”submit” value=”post it”/>//submit button

After that go to phpmyadmin  in the localhost create a new table named news so we are going to have 4 fields in that table

id_news     int                     set primary key     set auto increament

title             varchar           set length

body          text

date           date

Do the above steps to create all fields in the table. so now the table is created

Okay now we are going to insert the values into the database from the post.php

if($_POST[‘submit’])//submit is clicked
$body=$_POST[‘body’];//getting the values from the title and body
if($title && $body)//validating fields for null
mysql_connect(“localhost”,”root”,””) or die(mysql_error());//Database connection
mysql_select_db(“login”);//selecting database
$date= date(“y-m-d”);//date function in php
$insert=mysql_query(“INSERT INTO news values(‘ ‘,’$title’,’$body’, ‘$date’)”);//insert query where first field is empty bcoz it is auto increament
die(“Your news has been posted”);//die statement used to exit from the form and display the statement only you can use echo statement also
echo “Please enter the data”;//no value means

I think you will be understand the script from the comments line that i included in each code of the above script if not means please ask your doubts.In the next part we will display the posted news in the News.php from the database.
