HTML Form Example

I created this form on my graveyard site so users can share their own graveyard. It allows the user create a small profile of the grave yard and upload 5 images to the server. After filling out the form the data will be inserted into a MySQL table to be displayed later on the page they created. The page is created automatically, but I will show how that is done in a separate post. The images are uploaded to a server to be placed in unique folder to be easily displayed. From my past experience it is very important to prevent spam when creating HTML forms. I used Google’s Captcha to prevent the spam. It was very easy to setup and is very effective.

I have the files below that I created. They have  examples of:

  • Inserting HTML form data into a MySQL Table
  • Inserting multiple images into a server using a form
  • Using Google Captcha to prevent spam.

How to Select a Row in a MySQL Database using the URL

On a recent school project, we was making a website that had a social network element. After the user created his account and loged in, he could see his profile. This was useless because no one else could see it. I needed a way so that ever member had a unique URL.  So I created a template that only information from the database to create the webpage. It is very simple to query a MySQL database using the URL.

Website statistics after first year being online

It has now been 1 year since I came up with the not so great idea of creating a photo blog. The theme of the site was to mock people being dochebags. I would plug it here but I am not so proud of it. But I do want to share some statistics of the site after being online. It might give an idea of what to expect if your thinking about a similar idea. Keep in mind that I did not try to promote the site. I just to put it up and updated it fairly regular. I was not able to track the visits from mobile phone that brought up the mobile version of the site. I just know that i received over 1,300 page views from phones.

Take old style photos with your Android phone.

I sorta debated if this was worth posting about, but I think it is worthy of a mention. I found this app in the Android market the other day after the default camera on my G2 was messing up. After seeing the photos I took with it I got really excited about it. It is due to my odd curiosity on old style photos.

The app is called Retro Camera from Urbian and is found in the Android market. I would not be surprise if it is in the iPhone market also. As of right now (not sure if they plan to update it) they have 5 camera you can use. Here is also examples of the pictures it takes. Just to note, I am not a great photographer .

So I slowly learned to make a website very flexible from the start. Here is ways I found to make a site very flexible. Continue reading
