I wrote a code for posting names and dates to database table and a way to retrieve it. But I need a page for a client to delete stuff from the table so I don’t have to teach them how to use the phpadmin page.
1) Deleting things from the database **should not be simple**. Your design should force people to be very careful and deliberate.
2) End-users probably **should not be deleting database records at all**. In fact, I’d recommend that the database account used by normal users not even *have* delete privileges.
Allow users to “soft delete” (“hide”, “un-publish”, “ignore”, whateveryouwannacallit) records, and then allow an admin to go in periodically to do a “hard” delete. This also allows them to recover items deleted accidentally.
3) Without knowing *anything* about your database design, existing code, or even a general understanding of your goal (beyond “delete stuff”), it is impossible to offer a useful solution.
