With this in my controller, the form view displays fine:

Code:
<?php
class Sell extends Controller {

function index()
{

  $data['title']    = "RunwayJunkie.com - Buy & Sell Designer Clothing";

  $data['templates']   = array("front/templates/header", "front/partials/item_addform", "front/templates/footer");
  
  $this->load->view('front/loader', $data);
}
  
}
?>

However, the second function, to collect the form data, keeps the form view from showing up. I can't figure out whats wrong.

Code:
<?php
class Sell extends Controller {

function index()
{

  $data['title']    = "RunwayJunkie.com - Buy & Sell Designer Clothing";

  $data['templates']   = array("front/templates/header", "front/partials/item_addform", "front/templates/footer");
  
  $this->load->view('front/loader', $data);
}



function insert_item()
{

  $data = array(
   'seller_id'   = '1';
   'category_id'   = $this->input->post('category_id', TRUE);
   'brand_id'   = $this->input->post('brand_id', TRUE);
   'size_id'   = $this->input->post('size_id', TRUE);
   'item_title'  = $this->input->post('item_title', TRUE);
   'item_desc_short' = $this->input->post('item_desc_short', TRUE);
   'item_desc_long' = $this->input->post('item_desc_long', TRUE);
   'price'    = $this->input->post('price', TRUE);
   'condition_id'  = $this->input->post('condition_id', TRUE);
   'color'    = $this->input->post('color', TRUE);
   'material'   = $this->input->post('material', TRUE);
   'measurements'  = $this->input->post('measurements', TRUE);
   'img_1'    = '1';
   'img_2'    = '2';
   'img_3'    = '3';
   'img_4'    = '4';
  );
  
  $this->db->insert('items', $data);
  
}

}
?>


This sort of thing is so frustrating- in the time its taken me to build 3 pages in CI, I could have built this client's entire app in dreamweaver...

Your syntax for the array is wrong:

Code:
/*
|=============
| Notice that you should be using =>
| not = to set key/value pairs.
| Also, you should be using commas not
| semi-colons to separate the data.
|=============
*/
  $data = array(
   'seller_id'   => '1',
   'category_id'   => $this->input->post('category_id', TRUE),
   'brand_id'   => $this->input->post('brand_id', TRUE),
   'size_id'   => $this->input->post('size_id', TRUE),
   'item_title'  => $this->input->post('item_title', TRUE),
   'item_desc_short' => $this->input->post('item_desc_short', TRUE),
   'item_desc_long' => $this->input->post('item_desc_long', TRUE),
   'price' => $this->input->post('price', TRUE),
   'condition_id'  => $this->input->post('condition_id', TRUE),
   'color' => $this->input->post('color', TRUE),
   'material'   => $this->input->post('material', TRUE),
   'measurements'  => $this->input->post('measurements', TRUE),
   'img_1' => '1',
   'img_2' => '2',
   'img_3' => '3',
   'img_4' => '4'
  );

1. dreamweaver is garbage.
2. your syntax is all bat-shit wrong. you can't have semi-colons separating array key/value pairs. you need to use commas. and if you want to assign values to a key you use => not =

this syntax:
Code:
$hey = array('key' => $value, 'key2' => $value2);

OK got it guys- thanks so much. And while DW may be a tool of the past, I was making a point that all this "CI is so easy" stuff is not so true- when you figure it out its great, but figuring it out is very time consuming.

CI is remarkably easy compared to other PHP frameworks I've tried, but that does not circumvent the need to learn about the underlying language (like basic syntax) before charging headlong into Framework Land, whether it be PHP, Ruby, Python etc.
