I need any user to submit a form and dont show it to anyone else after being submitted
Posted on 2006-10-25
I have a page that shows up as an error page on my website if the db cant connect.
I added the following to the page. This provides a form to a user to alert the admin that the site is down (works with sms) I will place a notice like" you are the first to see this erorror please advise the site admin"
Then once theyve submitted it to me I dont want it to show up to anyone else.
I was thinking on the form submit to set a variable to 1 and later check the variable if its 1 I will not show the form code otherwise I will.
I have no clue as to how to make this work any thoughts Do I simply
define $count as global
$count = 1; in the code that transmits the sms? Will this hold that variable no matter how many times the page is loaded?
