`modified_by` VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL ,
`modified_date` DATETIME NOT NULL ,

WYSIWYG(What You See Is What You Get) editor:

We have many editors. For this example i am taking CKEditor.We can download the editor form the below url.

HTML code:

Insert format:

<script type="text/javascript" src="ckeditor/ckeditor.js"></script>
<script src="js/sample.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="css/sample.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<form method="post">
<div>Title : <input type="text" name='title' /></div>
<div>Meta Keywords <textarea name='meta_keywords'></textarea></div>
<div>Meta Description <taxtarea name='meta_description'></textarea></div>
<div>Content <textarea name="content" class="ckeditor"  id="editor1" rows="30" cols="70"></textarea></div>
<div><input type="submit" value="Submit" /></div>


PHP code to insert:


$query = "INSERT INTO CMS (title,meta_keywords,meta_description,content,created_by,created_date,status) VALUES  ('".addslashes($_POST['title'])."',

$result = mysql_query($query);


UPDATE Query :

get the details with using stripslashes function.

 mysql_query("SET NAMES 'UTF8'");
 $cms_content_query="UPDATE cms SET content='".addslashes($content)."' , modified_by='".$_SESSION['uname']."' , modified_date=now(), meta_keywords = '".addslashes($_POST['meta_keywords'])."', meta_description = '".addslashes($_POST['meta_description'])."' WHERE id=".$id;


Front-End Application.


PHP Code:

$query = "SELECT title,meta_keywords,meta_description,content from cms where id=1";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$get_cms_details = mysql_fetch_array($result);


HTML code:


<title><?php echo stripslashes($title);?></title>
<meta name="keywords" content="<?php echo stripslashes($meta_keywords);?>"  />
<meta name="description"  content="<?php echo stripslashes($meta_description);?>"  />
<?php echo stripslashes($content);?>
