Hey folks,
I am back with some more codeigniter helper functions that may ease up with your development. You can merge these functions with my Part-1 post and make a single helper file. All you have to do then is load and fire.😜

/* Checking if the field exists in specified table of database
Response => returns true if not found otherwise false
*Params*
$id : value which you want to check
$tableField : name of the field in table which you want to compare
$tableName : name of table from which you want to check
*/
function checkIfExists($id, $tableField, $tableName){
    $CI = & get_instance();
    $res = $CI->db->select($tableField)
    ->where($tableField,$id)
    ->get($tableName)
    ->row_array();
    return empty($res) ? false : true ;
}

/* Email helper
Response => returns true if send successfully otherwise false
*Params*
$data['from'] : from email address
