How to delete a file using PHP


When I was working with a project with file uploads, I had a thought of deleting those files with php. unlink is used to delete a file from a folder. It takes the file path along with the file name as parameter. This funtion can be simply written as shown below.

unlink("path_to_img/file_name.extension");
For example if you want to delete a text file sample.txt  which inside the folder uploads then you need to use like this unlink("uploads/sample.txt);
You can use the same code to delete any file, just by changing the file extension.

Thank you very much. If you have any doubts just comment below. I'm always happy to help you.

How to connect mysql database using PHP

 We have seen how to fetch youtube videos using simple javascript in our previous tutorial. Today's tutorial is about connecting our database using PHP. Since PHP is a dynamic scripting language and it uses mysql database in the back end to store the data. That means the php file has to be configured to connect the database. This can be done very easily with a simple php code. This tutorial will help you to connect to the database. The database connection needs four parameters to be passed into two functions. mysql_connect() and mysql_select_db() are the two functions to connect to the database.

mysql_connect() function requires three parameters and this function is used to connect to the database. and mysql_select_db() function is used to select the database.

Here is the simple code that you can simply copy and use to connect your database with php.

<?php
$dbhost                            = "localhost"; //host name (usually localhost)
$dbuser                            = "root"; //your database(mysql) user name
$dbpass                            = "database_password"; //your database (mysql) password
$dbname                            = "database_name"; //database name
$conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass) or die ("Error connecting to database");
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die ("Error selecting the database");
?>
Now replace root with your database username database_password with your database password  database_name with your database username. That's it, you are done.

Please don't hesitate to ask your queries. Thank you

How to fetch youtube video thumbnail title using javascript


 Hi friends, we have discussed about pagination tutorial using PHP and MySql in previous post. In this tutorial I came up with a script to fetch youtube videos on the client side using javascript. Sometimes we need to put video thumbnail and it's title to show as gallery. I worried about fetching videos into my website first. I googled for the code and found youtube API code. Using youtube API we can retrieve upto 50 videos. Youtube API code fetches last 50 videos uploaded by the user through feeds.
Now let me explain you about the javascript code to fetch youtube videos. It contains a small code that fetches the video thumbnails directly from youtube into your site. You just need to put video id into the code. Here in this tutorial I have included CSS styles to give a style to the video thumbnails.

Javascript code with HTML:

<div id="vidC">
<div id="vidThumb">
<script type="text/javascript">
//function to call youtube feeds
  function youtubeFeedCallback(data) {
    var s = '';
   
    s += '<img src="http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/YOUTUBE-VIDEO-ID/mqdefault.jpg"/>'; //fetching the thumbnail image of the video
    s += '<p style="color:white; font-size:13px;"> ' + data.entry.title.$t + '</p>'; //here we get the title of the video
    document.write(s);//writes the above values in HTML
  }
</script>
<!--youtube feeds API-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/YOUTUBE-VIDEO-ID?v=2&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=youtubeFeedCallback"></script>
</div>

 Copy the above code and replace YOUTUBE-VIDEO-ID  with the video ID from youtube.
Ex:
<script type="text/javascript">
//function to call youtube feeds
  function youtubeFeedCallback(data) {
    var s = '';
   
    s += '<img src="http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/mhzyi9nDHFI/mqdefault.jpg"/>'; //fetching the thumbnail image of the video
    s += '<p style="color:white; font-size:13px;"> ' + data.entry.title.$t + '</p>'; //here we get the title of the video
    document.write(s);//writes the above values in HTML
  }
</script>
<!--youtube feeds API-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos/mhzyi9nDHFI?v=2&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=youtubeFeedCallback"></script>

If you want to include styles then just copy the below CSS code.
<style>
#vidC {
    width: 282px;
    height: 190px;
    padding: 5px;
    margin-right: 15px;
    background-color: #000000;
    box-shadow:2px 0px 10px #333333;
    margin-bottom: 20px;
    float: left;
}
#vidThumb img{
    width: 282px;
    height: 158px;
    padding: 0;
    border:none;
}
</style>
Put these both blocks of code in a file and save it in HTML. Now the code will fetch the youtube thumbnails along with their titles.
Thank you. Please comment below if you need any help regarding this tutorial.

Create simple pagination with PHP and MySQL


Hi friends, todays tutorial is about creating a simple pagination using PHP and MySQL. I am going to explain you about creating a page with PREVIOUS and NEXT links at the bottom of your page with numberings.

Before looking at the code let's discuss about pagination concept. Pagination let's you create links that contains the data which is the continuation of the current item. Whenever there is large amount of data then it looks hard to load the entire data into a single page. Hence, we use the concept of pagination to allow the content to be split into parts and show only some part of the content per each page. This will give your website viewers a great experience and also has an advantage of speed loading of data, inorder to avoid the inconvenience.

I said before that this code is based on PHP and MySQL, hence this code reads the data from the database tables and displays it on our page with pagination links. Since the data is being retrieved from the tables in the database we need to use sql connection mysql_connect() and then we need select database using mysql_select_db(). Let us see briefly how to connect to database using these two functions in PHP.

Code for Database connection:

<?php
$dbhostname               = "host name here"; //replace with your host name usually localhostname
$dbusername               = "database user name"; //replace with your database user name.
$dbpassword              = "database password"; //replace with your password
$dbname                     = "database name"; //replace with your database name

$conn = mysql_connect($dbhostname, $dbusername, $dbpassword) or die ("Database connection failed");
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die ("Database selection failed");
?>
The above code is used for datavase connection. Now let's see the code that is required to generate pagination links.

Code to generate pagination:

<?php
function create_pagination($current_page, $total_pages)
  {
    $create_page_links = '';
    // generates anchor tag for previous page if this is not first page
    if ($current_page > 1)
    {
      $create_page_links .= '<a href="current-page-name.php?page=' . ($current_page - 1) . '">PREV</a> ';
    }
    // generates page links with numbers till the loop ends
    for ($count = 1; $count <= $total_pages; $count++)
    {
      if ($current_page == $count)
      {
        $create_page_links .= ' ' . $count;
      }
      else
      {
         $create_page_links .= ' <a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?page=' . $count . '"> ' . $count . '</a>';
      }
    }

    // generates anchor tag link for next page if this is not last page
    if ($current_page < $total_pages) {
      $create_page_links .= ' <a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?page=' . ($current_page + 1) . '">NEXT</a>';
    }
    return $create_page_links;
  }

  // Calculate pagination
  $current_page = isset($_GET['page']) ? $_GET['page'] : 1;
  $results_per_page =15;  // displays number of results per single page replace 15 with number of pages you may want
  $jump = (($current_page - 1) * $results_per_page); //3*2
 $query =  "select * FROM table_name order by id desc";//query to select from table
  $result = mysql_query($query1);

  $total = mysql_num_rows($result); //counts number of rows
  $total_pages = ceil($total / $results_per_page);

  $query =  $query . " LIMIT $jump, $results_per_page";
  $result = mysql_query($query);
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
//your code here to retrieve rows
}
?>
<!--creates links to display at bottom with previous, next and page numbers-->
                <div style="float:left; padding:20px">
                <?php
                if ($total_pages > 1)
                  {
                    echo create_pagination($current_page, $total_pages);
                  }
                ?>
                </div>
The above part of the code is to generate pagination links. I have clearly explained within the comments. So please look the code carefully and understand it. The above code is not included with database connection. Hence we can combine both the above codes together as shown below.

Pagination code with database connection:

<?php
$dbhostname               = "host name here"; //replace with your host name usually localhostname
$dbusername               = "database user name"; //replace with your database user name.
$dbpassword              = "database password"; //replace with your password
$dbname                     = "database name"; //replace with your database name

$conn = mysql_connect($dbhostname, $dbusername, $dbpassword) or die ("Database connection failed");
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die ("Database selection failed");
function create_pagination($current_page, $total_pages)
  {
    $create_page_links = '';
    // generates anchor tag for previous page if this is not first page
    if ($current_page > 1)
    {
      $create_page_links .= '<a href="current-page-name.php?page=' . ($current_page - 1) . '">PREV</a> ';
    }
    // generates page links with numbers till the loop ends
    for ($count = 1; $count <= $total_pages; $count++)
    {
      if ($current_page == $count)
      {
        $create_page_links .= ' ' . $count;
      }
      else
      {
         $create_page_links .= ' <a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?page=' . $count . '"> ' . $count . '</a>';
      }
    }

    // generates anchor tag link for next page if this is not last page
    if ($current_page < $total_pages) {
      $create_page_links .= ' <a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . '?page=' . ($current_page + 1) . '">NEXT</a>';
    }
    return $create_page_links;
  }

  // Calculate pagination
  $current_page = isset($_GET['page']) ? $_GET['page'] : 1;
  $results_per_page =15// displays number of results per single page replace 15 with number of pages you may want
  $jump = (($current_page - 1) * $results_per_page); //3*2
 $query =  "select * FROM table_name order by id desc";//query to select from table
  $result = mysql_query($query1);

  $total = mysql_num_rows($result); //counts number of rows
  $total_pages = ceil($total / $results_per_page);

  $query =  $query . " LIMIT $jump, $results_per_page";
  $result = mysql_query($query);
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
//your code here to retrieve rows
}
?>
<!--creates links to display at bottom with previous, next and page numbers-->
                <div style="float:left; padding:20px">
                <?php
                if ($total_pages > 1)
                  {
                    echo create_pagination($current_page, $total_pages);
                  }
                ?>
                </div>
The above code is the final one.Copy the code and use it wherever you want.

Note: Now just make these changes before using the code.

host name here //replace with your host name usually localhostname

database user name //replace with your database user name.

database password//replace with your password

database name //replace with your database name

current-page-name.php  //Replace with the name of the page where this code is being used.

 $results_per_page =15  //change 15 to whatever the number results you may want to display ina single page
 
//your code here to retrieve rows //Code to fetch the rows from a database table

The above code is to apply styles to the contact form. This is  a CSS3 code to bring you out the awesome look for a contact form.

Now we have discussed about the HTML and CSS codes required for the form. Now we have to look at JQuery code to apply toggle slide effect to the contact form.

JQuery Code:

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.1.min.js"></script>
<script>

$(document).ready(function(){
   
   
    $('.fill-form').click(function(){
       
        $(this).slideUp(300);
       
        $('#my-tt-message').slideUp(300);
       
        $('.trickstown').animate({height: "250px",marginTop: "250px"}, 500, function(){
           
            $(this).delay(400).animate({height: "780px",marginTop: "80px",marginBottom: "80px"}, 500);
           
            $('#bioinfo').delay(250).animate({marginTop: "-30px"}, 500);
           
            $('.close').delay(50).fadeIn('slow');
           
            $('#image').delay(1000).fadeIn('slow');
           
            $('#trickstown-social-icons').delay(1000).slideDown('slow').animate({top: "20px"}, 500);
           
            $('#trickstown-info').delay(1000).fadeIn(600);
           
        });
       
    });
   
   
    $('.close').click(function(){
       
        $(this).delay(100).fadeOut('slow');
       
        $('#trickstown-social-icons').slideUp('slow').animate({top: "-97px"}, 500);
       
        $('#bioinfo').delay(250).animate({marginTop: "0"}, 500);
       
        $('#image').delay(100).fadeOut('slow');
       
        $('#trickstown-info').hide();
       
        $('.trickstown').delay(500).animate({height: "250px",marginTop: "250px"}, 500).delay(300).animate({height: "320px",marginTop: "200px"}, 500,function(){
           
        $('.fill-form').slideDown(300);
       
        $('#my-tt-message').slideDown(300);
           
           
        });
       
    });
   
   
});
</script>
The above code is the required JQuery code to give you the best slide effects and toggle effects to your contact form.

Now let us put all the code together. The below code is the combination of all the above three. Copy the below code and save it as contact.html

contact.html



<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.1.min.js"></script>
<script>

$(document).ready(function(){ 
    $('.fill-form').click(function(){      
        $(this).slideUp(300);      
        $('#my-tt-message').slideUp(300);      
        $('.trickstown').animate({height: "250px",marginTop: "250px"}, 500, function(){          
            $(this).delay(400).animate({height: "780px",marginTop: "80px",marginBottom: "80px"}, 500);           
            $('#bioinfo').delay(250).animate({marginTop: "-30px"}, 500);          
            $('.close').delay(50).fadeIn('slow');          
            $('#image').delay(1000).fadeIn('slow');          
            $('#trickstown-social-icons').delay(1000).slideDown('slow').animate({top: "20px"}, 500);          
            $('#trickstown-info').delay(1000).fadeIn(600);          
        });      
    });
   
   
    $('.close').click(function(){      
        $(this).delay(100).fadeOut('slow');
      
        $('#trickstown-social-icons').slideUp('slow').animate({top: "-97px"}, 500);
      
        $('#bioinfo').delay(250).animate({marginTop: "0"}, 500);
      
        $('#image').delay(100).fadeOut('slow');
      
        $('#trickstown-info').hide();
      
        $('.trickstown').delay(500).animate({height: "250px",marginTop: "250px"}, 500).delay(300).animate({height: "320px",marginTop: "200px"}, 500,function(){
          
        $('.fill-form').slideDown(300);
      
        $('#my-tt-message').slideDown(300);          
          
        });       
    });
   
});

Copy the above code and paste it in any text editor such as notepad and save it as contact.html. Replace user-name to your user name of your social networks. Now your contact form is ready and you need to create one more page where the mail is sent to you. This page contains the configuration to send and receive mails through php.

Copy the below code and name it as send-mail.php.
Please note that don't change the file names if you don't know php.

send-mail.php

<html>
<head>
<title>Thank You</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />
</head>
<body>
   <div class="main">
<?php
if(isset($_POST['send']))
{
$name=$_POST['name'];
$email=$_POST['email'];
$msg=$_POST['msg'];
$to="YOUR-MAIL-ID";
$from = "Sent From: Tricks Town Contact Form";
$sub = "Contact Message";
$headers='From : '.$email. "\r\n";
$headers='Sender name : '.$name. "\r\n";
$headers='Message : '.$msg. "\r\n";
$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" . "\r\n";
if (mail ($to, $sub, $headers, $from)) {
            echo '<b style="color:#388440; ">Thank you, we will respond you back soon.</b>';
        } else {
            echo '<b style="color:#e41e1e; ">Something went wrong. Please try again!</b>';
        }
    }
?>
     </div>
 </body>
</html>
Replace YOUR-MAIL-ID with your mail id and save the above code as send-mail.php. Now upload the both files to your server through ftp and enter your details through the form and check your mail.
Please comment below if you have anything to share or ask to ask queries. Thank you.
