Hi All,

I'm trying to prevent duplicate entires in my DB for a newsletter submissions form. I'm successfully preventing the duplicate entries, but I haven't been able to revise my jQuery to print the error. I've included the PHP just incase I'm missing something there... Any help would be appreciated!

jQuery:
Code:
$('#newsletterForm').validate({
    submitHandler: function(form) {
        jQuery(form).ajaxSubmit(function() {
            $('#newsletterForm').html("<div id='success-message'></div>");
            $('#success-message').html("<p><strong>Thank you.</strong> <br/>You've been added to our list and will hear from us soon!</p>");
        });
    }
});
PHP:
Code:
if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {  

if(trim($_POST['email']) == '')  {  
    $hasError = true;  
} else if (!eregi("^[A-Z0-9._%-]+@[A-Z0-9._%-]+\.[A-Z]{2,4}$", trim($_POST['email']))) {  
    $hasError = true;  
} else {  
    $email = trim($_POST['email']);  
}  

if(!isset($hasError)) {  
    $con = mysql_connect("xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx","user","pass");
        if (!$con)
            {
                die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
            }

    mysql_select_db("myDB", $con);

    $query = "SELECT COUNT(id) AS mycount FROM newsletter WHERE email = '$email'";
    $result = mysql_query($query);
    $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
    if($row['mycount'] == 0) {
        $query = "INSERT INTO newsletter (email,dt) VALUES ('$email',NOW())";
        mysql_query($query) or die ("Error writing to database");
    } else {
         echo "I'm sorry our database already contains that email address. Please use a new email address to continue.";
    }

    if (!mysql_query($sql,$con))
         {
            die('Error: ' . mysql_error());
         }
    mysql_close($con);  
}  
}
