Is there a module where members can submit names to a page and checks to make sure there are not any duplicates before names are added?

What I am trying to do is create a module where members can submit the names of their state senators with their email address to a page.

Should not be hard to write something like that. You'd have to do one query to check for the duplicate name.

Look in Your_Account /admin/index.php. Look at case adduser. There is a check for duplicate username and an error if you try to add a duplicate. You could model something after that.

So, I would have to make a MySQL entry and a module that checks it and then writes to it.

I was looking at that earlier. From what I can see, it looks like I'll have to create a table.

Yes, that is likely that you will need to create a table. If you have some of the data in something like Excel it is not very hard to import it into the table using PHPmyadmin.

LOL!

I botched it and nearly hosed my site. I don't know what I'm doing, but thanks anyway.

This is why we recommend getting yourself XAMPP for your PC. It is a cynch to install and you can simply use phpMyAdmin even to take an export of your site and load it into MySQL. It has everything that you need to "Play" with your site on your local PC so that you NEVER mess up your production one. Once you have ironed out all the kinks, then, and only then, do you apply the final product to your live production site!

A cynch you say?

Remember, you're talking to a monkey Mr. Green

I've tried to install XAMPP once before and was completely lost when I was doing it.

Well, I guess its relative to trying to install MySQL and Apache and PHP all from their separate downloads. Sounds like you may need to find a geek-monkey friend to hang around with and then you can give them a banana or two to help you out. ROTFL killing me Laughing

Unfortunately, I don't know any php coders aside from those on this site Confused

I'm one of those people that only has to be shown once or twice.
