In this bit of code, the procedure is fairly simple.
1) get the value from the database.
2) check the value to find out what the first character is.
3) if the first character is "/" then the source is my site.
4) if not, the source is youtube.

I chose the / because I've never seen it used in the values on youtube.
and it makes finishing off the url easier.

the problem is, no matter what link I select, the url is always MY SITE!

What other ways can I do this?

Oh, and Beau dear? Shut the fuck up with seeing a big blank page because
that makes you a liar.

www.mroldies.net/test4.php



$result = mysql_query("SELECT avid FROM A$year WHERE id = $number");
if (!$result) { echo 'Could not run query: ' . mysql_error(); exit; }
$vid = mysql_fetch_row($result);

echo $vid[0];
$v=$vid[0];
$v1=substr($v,0,1);


$yt="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=".$vid[0];

if ($v1="/"){$yt="http://mroldies.net".$vid[0];}
echo "<br />".$yt;

That's not the same page, sto0pid.

Your previous iteration - that which I was talking about - was completely
blank when JavaScript is blocked or not enabled.

This: http://www.mroldies.net/test3.html which at this moment is still
active, and blank.

BTW, you should hire someone who has at least a scrap of artistic
abilities. You certainly don't.

Should be:
if ($v1=="/"){$yt="http://mroldies.net".$vid[0];} echo "<br />".$yt;

I think you've been advised of a similar error recently.

Same problem you had on your last question: the above is an assignment statement, not a
comparison. The equality comparison operator in php is ==, not =.

Fuckin' Ada, richard, how about *learning* some shit before posting
dopey questions, eh? How about looking through your code for simple
errors and, like, *fixing* them before posting here, eh?

Richard.....*lost for words*

*refound*

Brother you really should start keeping notes of these simple errors.
You keep revisiting the errors that people do when they first start
using PHP.

Many in the NG have taken their own time to point these out and give you
good advice, and to not learn or write the solutions down is being very
disrespectful to those peoples times, which is why you probably get many
disparaging comments.

I have a very bad memory myself but I keep a notebook and revisit it
whenever I run into an error to ensure I (or someone else) have not
already solved it previously.

Just a suggestion.

Bringing up ancient history is not good for YOU.
That moniker was given to me by a guy who simply edited an email I had sent
him, which he posted.
The good boys of AUK took it and made it their signature.
It's been politcally correct over the years to harass me for anything I
say, even though someone else who says the same damn thing, gets applauded.

I will remind you, that it was this very KOOK (RtS), who shot down and
identified the very kookmeister who made RtS his personal punching bag.
When I found out who he really was, the chicken shit high tailed to parts
unknown and would never say another word to me.

So I'm stupid huh?
Then how come my IQ is routinely tested at 125?

Now let's see how smart you are.
You have a set of equal squares lined up in a 3x3 pattern.
How many boxes do you see?
86% of the people get the answer wrong.

Brought to you by the "Lord of the Bull!".

FYI, I found that I could use the substr() function to solve my problem
with.
With everything that I had read, there was one very important thing every
one of these writers left out!
That being, the natural mind says the first character is "1" and therefore
the number 1 should be used if you want to start at the begining.
e.g.
substr("123",1,1)
The output is "1" correct?
Wrong!
It is "2".
To output the "1", the correct code is substr("123",0,1).
Why?
I suspect that this is due to the fact the substring is treated as an array
and the array always begins with [0] by default.

And with good reason, too.

No, Richard, you don't get harassed "for anything [you] say". This is what you get
"harassed" for:
- asking the same questions, over and over
- not listening to the answers...
- ... or worse, *arguing* with the answers
- criticizing people who are trying to help you
- never even considering that the problems you have are the direct result of _your own_
repeated failures to learn from experience

Is that all?

Seriously. That's really not especially high. I certainly wouldn't go around bragging about a
125 IQ.

Evidently, I'm enough smarter than you to see that your question is ambiguous: does
"boxes" mean squares? or rectangles? or *any* enclosed figures?

Yes that is the expected return/functionality of substr(), especially if
you read the 'manual' on the function. It specifies that 0 is the base.

Always remember (or write it down). php.net is your friend.
