Can a student register for only 1 course is that the assumption. Should I also cater for editing registrtion and what should be allowed to be edited in registration. Have a form to edit and delete course and student information already. Dont know if this is a dumb question at this point or is it just exhaustion.

Ok I think its exaustion I now see a student can register for more than 1 course. I seem to have problems editing registration more specifically what should be edited, should I just have option to delete a registration and another to add a registration.

<p>Enter you username:
<input type="text" name="user">
<p>Enter you password:

What is the absolute final deadline for submitting my work?
Is 5 minutes to midnight still Friday enough?

I lost two days work in a mindless moment of replacing my work with an older version.. really stupid I know!
Is there any way possible, that 5 minutes to midnight on Sunday can also be acceptable?

while ($hope => $chance) {
$Please_save_ me = $please;

echo $please ;

No. You don't need to create a diff login for Manage students. A link to manage students should be OK maybe in the form of a navigation bar.

Whoohoo! thanx. that helps alot... most of my code is now working at least. need to code in the validation now o_0

A quick Q, I've read it in one of the threads I think (can't seem to find where)... when deleting a Course, should the students also be removed(from Dcool smiley or just left course-less? at the moment I coded mine to basically just leave the student course-less so that they could re-register for a course through editing of student info, without having to completely re-register.

Hey Riekert.

Mac said that for the purpose of this course we should assume that if a course has a student registered for it, the course wont be deleted (well i seem to recall so anyway).

So i put in a constraint, whereby a course cannot be deleted if there are students registered for it smiling smiley a nice little error message pops up lol

But anyway, i guess everybody's probably approaching this differently!

Would it not be more correct to just warn the admin that the course he/she wants to delete still has students associated with it, but still allow the course to be deleted?

This way the admin does not have to delete tens or hundreds of students when a course is scrapped (remember that a course name can be changed in the "Manage Courses" page so the system will be able to cope with small changes like this).

My thinking is that we are not building a complete commercial system here, so I am not providing for every scenario (like allowing the admin to select multiple students to be deleted at one time, or allowing students to be enrolled for multiple courses etc.).

Hope my line of thinking is correct as it is a bit late for changes smile

Hi Stanimal

ok. I see. so rather just through a error and not delete.

Mine does what Ordo said, gives you (admin) a message to say that there is students linked to this course and if it is deleted the students will be without a course.

So that should be fine I think..

Cool guys... I added a db admin page, so the user can go in and with one click of a mouse they can empty all of the tables, deleteing all students courses etc, and reset all generators back to 0 tongue sticking out smiley

I found this pretty useful when testing the website myself lol. Just a thought!

If I required from you to build a fully functional (and logical) system it will take you 2 years smiling smiley At some point you have to stop - where is your choice. At minimum as what the tut letter requires. But it is good that you are thinking about it - because it is not just the coding that makes a good app - it is what it and how it offers it. This is when it becomes cool.... you'd be amazed what you can do!
