Home Forums Back End Empty Form Field Validation? Reply To: Empty Form Field Validation?


This should be added as a tutorial to this website. There isn’t a great deal of PDO material out there. W3 schools are still using SQL. Maybe you could submit it to them as well?

I certainly appreciate the sentiment. Two problems there:

  • W3Schools doesn’t accept user contributions or corrections.
  • W3Schools is a poor resource and I wouldn’t want to be associated with them. : )

I’ve written tutorials at Perhaps I’ll write one on moving away from ext/mysql.

Glad we got things working for you!
