For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Link to site not working ??

The following code should produce a button which redirects the user to another website.  $row[website] does contain the right URL.  But when its pressed it comes up with "Page cannot be displayed because the address is incorrect".  But if you highlight the URL and hit return it loads it ok.

Any ideas?



$website = ($row[website]) ? "<form action=$row[website] method=post>".
"<input name=who type=hidden value=".$row[hid].">".
"<input type=submit value=\"Go to Website\"></form><br>" : "";

Highlighting the address and linking to it will be using the get rather than the post method - are you sure that the URL you're looking to refer to accepts "POST"s?
