"Doesn't work" is not very descriptive.  Please post a link to the web page that is failing so we can see the actual behaviors.  Or if you don't have a live URL to demonstrate the issue, prepare the SSCCE so we can copy the code, install it on a public-facing server, and see the behaviors.  Thanks.

I dont have a live url yet so here is the link:
require "connection.php";

$result= mysqli_query($conn,"SELECT * FROM users WHERE username = '$username'");
$row = mysqli_fetch_row($result);
$firstname = $row[0];
$lastname= $row[1];
$email = $row[2];

Does this start with an open-PHP tag that is missing?  I copied it verbatim and installed it on my server here.  What should it be doing?

No no it isnt missing, most of not copied my mistake, yes that is how it is. As you can see it when you click the green "check" button it should go to edit.php but it isnt i dont know why it worked before.

Ray PaseurCommented:
There are two forms on the page.  The first is on line 210.  The second is on line 269.

The first form goes to edit.php.  The second form goes to getdata.php.

The green check button appears on line 257.

It looks like the markup is not valid.  It's almost impossible to get things to work right when you're starting with invalid markup.  My recommendation would be to correct the validation errors, then try it again.

What do you mean an invalid markup? They are suppose to be two separate forms, is that not allowed and its right the form that starts at line 210 is for edit.php(and the green check ) and the one that is on line 269 is for getdata.php, how can i do to differentiate them and fix the issue?

Please click here to see what the validator shows:
https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=https%3A%2F%2Ficonoun.com%2Fdemo%2Ftemp_jasmine.php

There is nothing wrong with having two forms.  The problems are likely caused by some of the other things that the validator is calling out.  Until you've got a starting point with valid markup, it's not likely that you can get a predictable result from the controls on the web page. So my recommendation is to go through the W3 validator's output, correct the issues, then rerun the validator, correct any new or lingering issues, and repeat this process until you're getting a clean "bill of health" from the validator.  Once you've got that, it should be easy to use the controls to submit the form.

I see you hav this script at the top.

    $('button').click(function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
    });

Open in new window


Since this is on the click of any button on the page it will fire when you click the form submit button and prevent the form submission. Not sure what you were trying to do here, but hope this helps find your issue.
