Creating Your Own Newsletter subscription/Unsubscription with PHP/MYSQL

You really need only one field in the subscribers table: to hold the email address of the user. However, you should have an ID field just for consistency among your tables, and also because referencing an ID is a lot simpler than referencing a long email address in where clauses. So, in this case, your MySQL query would look something like

mysql> create table subscribers (
    -> id int not null primary key auto_increment,
    -> email varchar (150) unique not null
    -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Note the use of unique in the field definition for email. This means that although id is the primary key, duplicates should not be allowed in the email field either. The email field is a unique key, and id is the primary key.

This relationship is represented in the table information as MUL (or "multiple") in the Key field:

mysql> describe subscribers;
+-------+--------------+------+-----+---------+----------------+
| Field | Type         | Null | Key | Default | Extra          |
+-------+--------------+------+-----+---------+----------------+
| id    | int(11)      |      | PRI | NULL    | auto_increment |
| email | varchar(150) | YES  | MUL | NULL    |                |
+-------+--------------+------+-----+---------+----------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Now that you have a table, you can create the form and script that place values in there.

Creating the Subscription Form

The subscription form will actually be an all-in-one form and script called manage.php, which will handle both subscribe and unsubscribe requests shows the code for manage.php, which uses a few user-defined functions to eliminate repetitious code.


Listing 18.1 Subscribe and
Unsubscribe with manage.php

  1: <?php

  2: //set up a couple of functions

  3: function doDB() {

  4:     global $conn;

  7:         or die(mysql_error());

  8:    mysql_select_db("testDB",$conn) or die(mysql_error());

  9: }

 10:

 13:    //check that email is not already in list

 14:    $check = "select id from subscribers where email = '$email'";

 15:    $check_result = mysql_query($check,$conn) or die(mysql_error());

 16: }

 17: 

 18: //determine if they need to see the form or not

 19: if ($_POST[op] != "ds") {

 73:    } else {

 74:        //unsubscribe the address

 75:        $id = mysql_result($check_result, 0, "id");

 76:        $sql = "delete from subscribers where id = '$id'";

 77:        $result = mysql_query($sql,$conn) or die(mysql_error());

 78:        $display_block = "<P>You're unsubscribed!</p>";

 79:    }

may be long, but it's not complicated. In fact, it could be longer, were it not for the user-defined functions at the top of the script. One of the reasons for creating your own functions is that you know you will be reusing a bit of code and don't want to continually retype it. Lines 3–9 set up the first function, doDB(), which is simply the database connection you've been making in your lessons for a while now. Lines 11–16 define a function called emailChecker(), which takes an input and returns an output—like most functions do. We'll look at this one in the context of the script, as we get to it.

Line 19 starts the main logic of the script. Because this script performs several actions, we need to determine which action it is currently attempting. If the value of $_POST[op] is not "ds", we know the user has not submitted the form; therefore, we must show it to the user. Lines 21–34 create the subscribe/unsubscribe form, using $_SERVER[PHP_SELF] as the action (line 22), creating a text field called email for the user's email address, and setting up a set of radio buttons (lines 28–29) to find the desired task. At this point, the script breaks out of the if...else construct, skips down to line 82, and proceeds to print the HTML. The form is displayed as shown in below










If the value of $_POST[op] is indeed "ds", however, we need to do something. We have two possibilities: subscribe and unsubscribe. We determine which action to take by looking at the value of $_POST[action]—the radio button group.

In line 36, if $_POST[op] is "ds" and $_POST[action] is "sub", we know the user is trying to subscribe. To subscribe, he will need an email address, so we check for one in lines 38–41. If no address is present, the user is sent back to the form.

If an address is present, we call the doDB() function in line 43 to connect to the database because we need to perform a query (or two). In line 45, we call the second of our user-defined functions, emailChecker(). This function takes an input ($_POST[email]) and processes it. If we look back to lines 12–15, we see that the function is checking for an id value in the subscribers table that matches the value of the input. The function then returns the resultset, $check_result, for use within the larger script.

Note: the definition of global variables at the beginning of both user-defined functions in figures. These variables need to be shared with the entire script, and so are declared global.

Jump down to line 48 to see how $check_result is used: The number of records in $check_result is counted to determine whether the email address already exists in the table. If the number of rows is less than 1, the address is not in the list, and it can be added. The record is added and the response is stored in lines 50–52, and the failure message (if the address is already in the table) is stored in line 55. At that point, the script breaks out of the if...else construct, skips down to line 82, and proceeds to print the HTML. You'll test this functionality later.

The last combination of inputs occurs if the value of $_POST[op] is "ds" and $_POST[action] is "unsub". In this case, the user is trying to unsubscribe. To unsubscribe, he will need an email address, so we check for one in lines 59–61. If no address is present, the user is sent back to the form.

If an address is present, we call the doDB() function in line 64 to connect to the database. Then, in line 66, we call emailChecker(), which again will return the resultset, $check_result. The number of records in the resultset is counted in line 69, to determine whether the email address already exists in the table. If the number of rows is less than 1, the address is not in the list, and it cannot be unsubscribed. In this case, the response message is stored in lines 71–72. The user is unsubscribed(the record deleted) and the response is stored in lines 75–77, and the failure message (if the address is already in the table) is stored in line 78. At that point, the script breaks out of the if...else construct, skips down to line 82, and proceeds to print the HTML.

Below figures show the various results of the coded script, depending on the actions selected and the status of email addresses in the database

Developing the Mailing Mechanism

With the subscription mechanism in place, you can create a basic form interface for a script that will take the contents of your form and send it to every address in your subscribers table. This is another one of those all-in-one scripts, called sendmymail.php, and it is shown in above


Listing Send Mail to Your List of Subscribers

>Listing 18.2 Send Mail to
Your List of Subscribers

  1: <?php

  2: if ($_POST[op] != "send") {

  3:    //haven't seen the form, so show it

  4:    print "

  5:    <HTML>

 13:    <input type=\"text\" name=\"subject\" size=30></p>

 14:    <P><strong>Mail Body:</strong><br>

 15:    <textarea name=\"message\" cols=50 rows=10 wrap=virtual></textarea>

 16:    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"op\" value=\"send\">

 17:    <p><input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Send It\"></p>

 18:    </FORM>

 19:    </BODY>

 20:    </HTML>";

 21:

 22: } else if ($_POST[op] == "send") {

 23:     //want to send form, so check for required fields

 24:     if (($_POST[subject] =="") || ($_POST[message] == "")) {

 25:        header("Location: sendmymail.php");

 26:        exit;

 27:    }

 28: 

 29:    //connect to database

 30:    $conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "joeuser", "somepass")

 31:         or die(mysql_error());

 32:    mysql_select_db("testDB",$conn) or die(mysql_error());

 33: 

 34:    //get emails from subscribers list

 35:    $sql = "select email from subscribers";

 36:    $result = mysql_query($sql,$conn) or die(mysql_error());

 37: 

 38:    //create a From: mailheader

 39:    $headers = "From: Your Mailing List <you@yourdomain.com>\n";

 40:

 41:    //loop through results and send mail

 42:    while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {

 43:        set_time_limit(0);

 44:        $email = $row['email'];

 45:        mail("$email", stripslashes($_POST[subject]),

 46:             stripslashes($_POST[message]), $headers);

 47:        print "newsletter sent to: $email<br>";

 48:    }

 49: }
The main logic of the script starts right there at line 2, where we determine whether the user has seen the form yet. If the value of $_POST[op] is not "send", we know the user has not submitted the form; therefore, we must show it to her. Lines 4–20 create the form for sending the newsletter, which uses $_SERVER[PHP_SELF] as the action (line 11), creates a text field called subject for the subject of the mail, and creates a textarea called message for the body of the mail to be sent. At this point, thescript breaks out of the if...else construct and the HTML is printed. The form is displayed as in




If the value of $_POST[op] is indeed "send", however, we have to send the form to the recipients. Before we send, we must check for the two required items: $_POST[subject] and $_POST[message]. If either of these items is not present, the user is redirected to the form again.

If the required items are present, the script moves on to lines 30–32, which connect to the database. The query is issued in line 36, which grabs all the email addresses from the subscribers table. There is no order to these results, although you could throw an order by clause in there if you want to send them out in alphabetical order.

Line 39 creates a From: mail header, which is used inside the upcoming while loop, when mail is sent. This header ensures that the mail looks like it is from a person and not a machine. The while loop, which begins on line 42, extracts the email addresses from the resultset one at a time. On line 43, we use the set_time_limit() function to set the time limit to 0, or "no limit." Doing so allows the script to run for as long as it needs to.

Note: Because all the script is execute the mail() function numerous times, it does not take into account the queuing factors in actual mailing list software, which are designed to ease the burden on your outgoing mail server. Using set_time_limit() does not ease its burden; it just allows the script to continue to run when it might have timed out before.

In line 45, the mail is sent using the mail() function, inserting the values from the form where appropriate. Line 46 prints a message to the screen for you, to show who should have received the mail.You can see the outcome of the script.

Threats on Internet (Cyber Hygiene)

Threats on Internet (Cyber Hygiene)

Threats on Internet, operation System update, Anti-Virus software’s Installation, Personal firewall, Pop-up blocking, Spy ware removal tools.

Types of Internet threats:

  • Viruses
  • Network worms
  • Trojans
  • Spyware / Adware
  • Other Malware
  • Other Threats

Viruses, worms and Trojan horses:

A virus is a program that replicates itself, usually by attaching itself to other files and program. A worm is a program that does not infect other programs but makes copies of itself. Trojan horse programs do not replicate nor make copies of themselves, but rely on other “manual” method of distribution. We use the term “Virus” on this page to cover all forms of infections.

Virus are spread in a variety of ways. Some Examples:

  • Email attachments (such as klez, Badtrans, myparty)
  • Instant messages links and attachments (such as Aplore)
  • Compromised web services (such as Nimda)
  • Usenet news groups
  • Internet relay Chart channels
  • Floppy diskettes
  • File downloads (many backdoor Trojans are embedded with other files)

All viruses are different. Some activate on a certain day, but remain dormant until then. Others being the attack as soon as the machine has been infected. Viruses can be very damaging and some are just annoying.

More than 1,00,000 known viruses exists in the world today several hundred new

Viruses are discovered every month

Protecting from viruses:

A good way to protect yourself is to have virus protection program and keep it up-to-date. Before running a download from an unknown site, or opening an email attachment, always be sure to scan it to ensure that it is not infected. If you do not know that source of a file does not open it. Even it you know the person who sent you a file, if you were not expecting it you may want to contact them before opening it. This is because many viruses automatically send themselves out to addresses it finds in file on the infect computer.

20 things you didn't know about Windows XP

20 things you didn't know about Windows XP

You've read the reviews and digested the key feature enhancements and operational changes. Now it's time to delve a bit deeper and uncover some of Windows XP's secrets. 1. It boasts how long it can stay up. Whereas previous versions of Windows were coy about how long they went between boots, XP is positively proud of its stamina. Go to the Command Prompt in the Accessories menu from the All Programs start button option, and then type 'systeminfo'. The computer will produce a lot of useful info, including the uptime. If you want to keep these, type 'systeminfo > info.txt'. This creates a file called info.txt you can look at later with Notepad. (Professional Edition only). 2. You can delete files immediately, without having them move to the Recycle Bin first. Go to the Start menu, select Run... and type 'gpedit.msc'; then select User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Explorer and find the Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin setting. Set it. Poking around in gpedit will reveal a great many interface and system options, but take care -- some may stop your computer behaving as you wish. (Professional Edition only). 3. You can lock your XP workstation with two clicks of the mouse. Create a new shortcut on your desktop using a right mouse click, and enter 'rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation' in the location field. Give the shortcut a name you like. That's it -- just double click on it and your computer will be locked. And if that's not easy enough, Windows key + L will do the same. 4. XP hides some system software you might want to remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can tickle it and make it disgorge everything. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file /windows/inf/sysoc.inf, search for the word 'hide' and remove it. You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select Add/Remove Windows Components and there will be your prey, exposed and vulnerable. 5. For those skilled in the art of DOS batch files, XP has a number of interesting new commands. These include 'eventcreate' and 'eventtriggers' for creating and watching system events, 'typeperf' for monitoring performance of various subsystems, and 'schtasks' for handling scheduled tasks. As usual, typing the command name followed by /? will give a list of options -- they're all far too baroque to go into here. 6. XP has IP version 6 support -- the next generation of IP. Unfortunately this is more than your ISP has, so you can only experiment with this on your LAN. Type 'ipv6 install' into Run... (it's OK, it won't ruin your existing network setup) and then 'ipv6 /?' at the command line to find out more. If you don't know what IPv6 is, don't worry and don't bother. 7. You can at last get rid of tasks on the computer from the command line by using 'taskkill /pid' and the task number, or just 'tskill' and the process number. Find that out by typing 'tasklist', which will also tell you a lot about what's going on in your system. 8. XP will treat Zip files like folders, which is nice if you've got a fast machine. On slower machines, you can make XP leave zip files well alone by typing 'regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll' at the command line. If you change your mind later, you can put things back as they were by typing 'regsvr32 zipfldr.dll'. 9. XP has ClearType -- Microsoft's anti-aliasing font display technology -- but doesn't have it enabled by default. It's well worth trying, especially if you were there for DOS and all those years of staring at a screen have given you the eyes of an astigmatic bat. To enable ClearType, right click on the desktop, select Properties, Appearance, Effects, select ClearType from the second drop-down menu and enable the selection. Expect best results on laptop displays. If you want to use ClearType on the Welcome login screen as well, set the registry entry HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULT/Control Panel/Desktop/FontSmoothingType to 2. 10. You can use Remote Assistance to help a friend who's using network address translation (NAT) on a home network, but not automatically. Get your pal to email you a Remote Assistance invitation and edit the file. Under the RCTICKET attribute will be a NAT IP address, like 192.168.1.10. Replace this with your chum's real IP address -- they can find this out by going to www.whatismyip.com -- and get them to make sure that they've got port 3389 open on their firewall and forwarded to the errant computer. 11. You can run a program as a different user without logging out and back in again. Right click the icon, select Run As... and enter the user name and password you want to use. This only applies for that run. The trick is particularly useful if you need to have administrative permissions to install a program, which many require. Note that you can have some fun by running programs multiple times on the same system as different users, but this can have unforeseen effects. 12. Windows XP can be very insistent about you checking for auto updates, registering a Passport, using Windows Messenger and so on. After a while, the nagging goes away, but if you feel you might slip the bonds of sanity before that point, run Regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/Advanced and create a DWORD value called EnableBalloonTips with a value of 0. 13. You can start up without needing to enter a user name or password. Select Run... from the start menu and type 'control userpasswords2', which will open the user accounts application. On the Users tab, clear the box for Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer, and click on OK. An Automatically Log On dialog box will appear; enter the user name and password for the account you want to use. 14. Internet Explorer 6 will automatically delete temporary files, but only if you tell it to. Start the browser, select Tools / Internet Options... and Advanced, go down to the Security area and check the box to Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed. 15. XP comes with a free Network Activity Light, just in case you can't see the LEDs twinkle on your network card. Right click on My Network Places on the desktop, then select Properties. Right click on the description for your LAN or dial-up connection, select Properties, then check the Show icon in notification area when connected box. You'll now see a tiny network icon on the right of your task bar that glimmers nicely during network traffic. 16. The Start Menu can be leisurely when it decides to appear, but you can speed things along by changing the registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/MenuShowDelay from the default 400 to something a little snappier. Like 0. 17. You can rename loads of files at once in Windows Explorer. Highlight a set of files in a window, then right click on one and rename it. All the other files will be renamed to that name, with individual numbers in brackets to distinguish them. Also, in a folder you can arrange icons in alphabetised groups by View, Arrange Icon By... Show In Groups. 18. Windows Media Player will display the cover art for albums as it plays the tracks -- if it found the picture on the Internet when you copied the tracks from the CD. If it didn't, or if you have lots of pre-WMP music files, you can put your own copy of the cover art in the same directory as the tracks. Just call it folder.jpg and Windows Media Player will pick it up and display it. 19. Windows key + Break brings up the System Properties dialogue box; Windows key + D brings up the desktop; Windows key + Tab moves through the taskbar buttons.

GOOD TRICK (HAVE FUN UR WINAMP)

Good trick (Try This 1 with ur Winamp) When ur Winamp is active try to do given below! Just type! (u can’t read what ur typing therefore just type) The skincheat is a little easter egg in Winamp. To activate it type Nullsoft (with Esc after each "l" to close the dialog) while the Winamp window is active. Now the title bar of the main window changes into another. What appears now the skinner decides. Typically it is a text, short information about the skinner or something else.

NEW ERROR FOUND NOW A DAYS Be Careful

NEW ERROR FOUND NOW A DAYS Be Careful

It is Really send by my friend (The Black Knight)

NEW ERROR FOUND NOW A DAYS !!! Be Careful...

Now a days a new virus( worm ) is getting access to the systems by bypassing the ANTIVIRUS..... The effect of the worm is like this,... >> U will get header like TAGA ESTI MARUNDIKI MUBHAY!!!-BY S.NICHOLOS or MABUHAY ESTI MARINDUQUE! BY: Nicklaus S. Buñag when-ever U will open ur internet explorer...

>> Also the system-drives ( C:, D:, E: or F: etc... ) will not open on double click... >> By Right-clicking on the drives U will get AutoPlay opyion instead of OPEN option.....

Hi, I've suffered with the same problem n I've tesed it with a lot of anti-virus... Best use NOD32 to cleanup it... It was the only software which was able to detect the worm ( its a maskrider worm ) Well if U don't have then U can also delete it manually.... Follow the steps... ( exactly as I am telling ) 1. Go to safe mode ( I think U know how to ) 2. Go to your own user mode n not as Administrator. 3. RUN > regedit ( Press enter ) 4. Navigate to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\ then in the left pannel U will find a key named "maskrider", delete this key. 5. Now just click on "HKEY_CURRENT_USER". 6. Press Ctrl + F to open the find option in the registry... 7. Write maskrider n click on Find Next. 8. U will get 4-5 times ( may be more than that ) the find result, delete the key that contains the "maskrider" option from the registry. ( When U will get the key is under some AutoRun option delete the whole AutoRun from Registry. ) 9. Now go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\ Delete the key named "Window Title"... ( in the left pannel ) 10. Now close the Registry. 11. Open the C: Drive. 12. RUN > cmd ( Press enter ) 13. cd C:\ ( Press enter ) 14. attrib -r -h -a -s ( Press enter ) 15. In the C: Drive U will get a lot of files suddenly opens up, Just delete the files named maskrider2001.vbs and AutoRun.inf. ( DON't mesh with any of those other files without knowing what they do !!! It will simply CRASH ur system !!! ) 16. attrib +r +h +a +s ( Press enter ) 17. Now U have to do the same method for each drive U have, like U have 4 drives, C: D: E: & F:, then each time open the corresponding Folder n do the same cmd commands n delete the maskrider2001.vbs and AutoRun.inf It will surely correct ur all problems after the system restart,... Tell me it worked or not ( feedback )...
