    Red face PHP/MySQL Registration Form to Set Up Public Profile

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a php and database newbie and I'm trying to find a simple but secure form for the purpose of people setting up a public profile on a site, meaning others need to be able to see the profile page without being logged in. It's not a members site as such. The registration is simply for the purpose of people entering their details to set up their profile page. Registration is free, so no credit card data will be involved. I plan to incorporate captcha. I would like the registration form to include password confirmation (enter it twice). Also, the variables I need on the profile page include a free text area, their telephone number, be able to upload pics, and validation of their url.

    I've been googling, but the scripts I've found are either old and involved depracated script or require that a person is logged in to view the profile. I found a script that seems pretty good (from what I can tell based on my limited knowledge) which I found here: http://www.html-form-guide.com/php-f...tion-form.html, but this one required log-in to view the profile. There's probably a way to amend the code to avoid this, but I don't know how.

    So, the question is, does anyone know off the top of their head a reasonably secure script that meets my criteria, or am I asking way too much?

    Thanks

    The book PHP and MYSQL Second Edition by Larry Ullman has a chapter creating such a program. It's based on PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1. You can probably pick it up a copy for a good price.

    People will tell you to use MySQLi because you can take advantage of newer MySQL features, which is all well and good but regular MySQL still works fine. There's a section on MySQLi in this book that you can read about and use on the book's login area lesson if you'd like.

    hahahahaha. You won't belive this, but I just checked my bookshelves, and I have this book. It's been there all along.
