HELP!!! I cannot insert/update any products in my database


Guest

Recommended Posts

This is what I have done:

 

Insert HTML in the text field instead of text - i.e. using HTML tags

 

I can preview a new item or an existing item, but when I press INSERT or UPDATE - nothing. No movement no nothing :cry:

 

Anyone help before I have a nervous breakdown!!!

I think I have fixed it (yes I am an idiot)

 

Check out this code:

<table width="200" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

<tr>

<td><img src="http://www.mygeekshop.com/catalog/images/description/product_sold_out.gif" width="200" height="25"></td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td background="http://www.mygeekshop.com/catalog/images/description/product_background.gif"><font size="2"> 

</font> <table width="180" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

<tr>

<td><font size="2" face="Microsoft Sans Serif">Regular Price $15.95</font><font face="Microsoft Sans Serif"><br>

<font color="#FF0000" size="3"><strong>Our Price $13.55</strong></font><br>

<font size="1">That's a saving of 15% ($1.40)</font></font><br>

Basically I feel that the bolded area was the problem. What I did was create a form for TELL A FRIEND in the actually HTML. The result was no records could be updated

 

If I create it without the form, then the whole html works, and it's rocking.

 

I was wanting to remove the tell a friend box on the right and add it to the document but this isnt the way to do this :oops:

 

So lesson for all - dont mess with a good system - you will get results you dont want to know about! :cry: :oops:

 

Thanks,

James
