    Converting website to WordPress. Now images from php msql database no longer clickabl

    I am converting a traditional website to WordPress for an animal rescue charity so members can have a blog and more easily update various pages. All has gone well but I am stuck on one key aspect. Viewers of the original site can click on a page that will then display pictures and names of all dogs of a certain size awaiting adoption. The dogs' names and the location of their photos are stored in a database and the photos in a folder. The images are **clickable** so that the user can pick a dog and see more about it on another page. The original site all works just fine - see link http://www.famaspain.com/adoption.html then please select Small Dogs (for example).

    The page view output looks like this - repeated for each dog of course:
    `div class="dog_box" >
    <a href="http://www.famaspain.com/dogfactstemplate.php?name=Bobby"> <p class="name">Bobby</p>
    <p class="dog_img"> <img src="smalldogsphotos/bobby1.jpg" height="180" width="180">
    </p></a></div> `

    and the code used to pull the data from the database is:
    `<div id="animalphotos">

    <?php
    $db_host = '*********';
    $db_user = '*********';
    $db_pwd = '*********';

    $database = '***********';
    $table = "**********";

    if (!mysql_connect($db_host, $db_user, $db_pwd))
    die("Can't connect to database");

    if (!mysql_select_db($database))
    die("Can't select database");

    // sending query
    $results = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM $table WHERE type= 'dog' AND category = 'adopt' AND placement='Unplaced' AND size = 'small' ORDER BY name");
    if (!$results) {
    die("Query to show fields from table failed");
    }

    while($results_array = mysql_fetch_array($results))
    {
    $id = $results_array["id"];
    $image = $results_array["photo1"];
    $name = $results_array["name"];

    echo "<div class=\"dog_box\" >\r";
    echo "\n";
    echo "<a href=\"http://www.famaspain.com/<strong>dogfactstemplate.php</strong>?name=$name\"> <p class=\"name\">".$name."</p>\t\r";
    echo "\n";
    echo "<p class=\"dog_img\"> ". $image ." </p></a>\t\r";
    echo "\n\t";
    echo "</div>";
    }
    echo "<div class=\"clear\"></div>";
    ?>
    </div> <!-- End Animal Photos --> `

    The various classes just specify margins and spacing for a neat two column layout.

    OK - so what's the problem? Well, if I cut and paste the very same code into a WP page and run it I get each dog's name and image displayed as per the original site - but they are not clickable and the class names are not used to get the right spacing and margins. (Although WP **is** opening the right style sheet for these class statements.)

    The page view results also show missing info - the a href and the classes. Here is one example - repeated for each dog:
    `Bobby
    <img src="smalldogsphotos/bobby1.jpg" height="180" width="180">`

    The WP version link is: http://famaspain.com/wordpress/?page_id=64 Again, please view page and select Small Dogs to see the non-clickable images and poorly aligned display.

    Since the php, msql, array etc all run OK and every image is displayed I am at a loss to see what is causing the a href and classes not to be picked up.

    Can anyone help please - it's driving me nuts!

    resolved

    OK - found the error. For anyone else who comes looking, the WP plugin I am using to allow php in WP pages requires some changes to the syntax. For example, all instances of <?php must be
    PHP Code:
     and ?> must change to 
    . I had done this but missed a further change. All instances of <, or >, must be changed to [, or ], respectively. This I had missed - for example, <p> becomes [p] and so on.

    All is working OK now.

    OOOps - this should read the normal opening for php should change to
    PHP Code:
     and the ending for php should change to 
    which i had done but missed things like <p> must change to [p] etc.
