Hey there people, I know you can update a variable in a table using
$query = "UPDATE ad SET del = del+1 WHERE username = 'john' ";
(so that ‘del’ is actually incremented by 1 or whatever you want)
I’d like to do this with a text variable but it won’t let me:
$query = "UPDATE ad SET comment = comment + '<br>this is a new line of text' WHERE username = 'john' "
Here 'comment is a ‘TEXT’ column (similar to BLOB)
How can I do this, do I have to retrieve the whole field and then update it ?
Oh, and does anyone know how I can place linebreak (like ‘/n’) in my mysql table, so it looks cleaner ?
