hyper link using php

timer Asked: May 14th, 2013

Question description

I am trying to create a hyper link that will link to the id number of the sql item for every link.

im trying to make the "id" in a sql query link with the same number as the id
so like id = 1
create a hyper link that would make it localhost/?page=1
id = 2
and so on
but more complicated like a product number 4567-2443
so it would be localhost/?page=4567-2443

The goal is I will have 28,000 items in a table split by categories. when i click the product id i want to link to its page which will always be www.yourdomain.com/?product=<product id>

any suggestions help. This is the code I have so far to display the table and pagination.

 $link = mysql_connect( ':/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock', 'root', 'root' ); mysql_select_db('products');
 if (!$link){
 echo "Could not connect to database" . mysql_error();
$db_name = "products";
 if (!mysql_select_db($db_name, $link)){
 die ("Could not select database" . mysql_error());

  $per_page = 2;
  $pages_query = mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(`id`) FROM `beans`"); $pages = ceil (mysql_result($pages_query, 0) / $per_page);
  $page = (isset($_GET['page'])) ? (int)$_GET['page'] : 1; $start = ($page - 1) * $per_page;
  $id = $query_row['id'];
  $query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `beans` LIMIT $start, $per_page");
 while ($query_row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query)) {
 echo '<p>', $query_row['id'] ,$query_row['name'] ,'</p>';
 if ($pages >= 1) {
 for ($x = 1; $x <= $pages; $x++) {
 echo '<a href="?page=' . $x . '">' . $x . '</a> ';
