I am not sure why my text for the link is not visible on the page but, when I take my mouse to the area where I was expecting a link text then I am able to click that blank area" and able to download correct file!
Here is the code structure:
<html> <head> some heading/styling link etc. <body> some code related to creating dropdown and populating it (form used) <?php if submit button is clicked then bunch of variables are populated and user receives an email with result file. Ideally, I would like to be able to display a result file link inside this php code.However, I don't know if php allows to create a hyperlink. So, I was testing to create a link outside php code. The php code does some python query. exec("/path/to/python script that does query $var1 $var2 $var3 2>&1", $output) ?> <a href="/<?php echo $output ?>"Link to query result</a> </body> </html>
So, the text "Link to query result" is nowhere visible but the link exists. What is happening here?
