<div class="col-md-4 form-group">
<label for="SubjectMaterialTitle">Subject Material Title</label>
<input type="text" name="sub_title" placeholder="Subject Material Title" class="form-control" required>

<div class="col-md-4 form-group">

<input type="file" name="sub_file" id="exampleInputFile" required>
<p class="help-block">Upload Image/File upto 2MB size only</p>

<div class="col-md-4 form-group">
<label for="WritenBy">Writen By</label>
<select class="form-control" name="writen_by">
<?php if(isset($_SESSION['admin_email'])){
echo '<option value='. $_SESSION['admin_username'] .'>'. $_SESSION['admin_username'] .'</option> ';


PHP code is


global $con;

//getting the text data from the fields
$sub_title = $_POST['sub_title'];
$sub_url = $_POST['sub_url'];
$writen_by = $_POST['writen_by'];

//getting image from the fields
$sub_file = $_FILES['sub_file']['name'];
$sub_file_tmp = $_FILES['sub_file']['tmp_name'];


//insert data into table
$insert_submat = "insert into m_study_material (sm_title,sm_downloadurl,sm_image,created_by) values ('$sub_title','$sub_url','$sub_file','$writen_by')";

echo $insert_submat;

$run_submat = mysqli_query($con, $insert_submat);



echo "<script>alert('Inserted Successfully.')</script>";

echo "Not inserted";

You forgot to add quotes arround value, thats why values is being post properly.

  <?php if(isset($_SESSION['admin_email'])){ 
                                                echo '<option value="'. $_SESSION['admin_username'] .'">'. $_SESSION['admin_username'] .'</option> ';
