More details needed

Perhaps a posting of the code you're trying (substitute foobars for confidential stuff)?

A bit more info would be nice

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to help with php

But as a fellow newbie to PHP, I used
$_POST[param] to access a posted parameter.
where param is the name of a field in the form.
Not quoted, which did catch me out at first.
Got all the info I needed via google.

Wrong forum

by deepsand In reply to help with php

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions."

Please re-post there.

Thank you..

It's a TR problem, one that has been addressed ...

by deepsand In reply to sorry about that

in many discussions.

The structure of TR makes no attempt to guide one to the proper forum, particularly when an article prompts the reader to seek Tech. support from the members.

As a result, the Discussions listings are a jumbled mix of true Discussions and Tech. Questions.

As TR has not yet deemed it worthy of their attention, it falls to the memebers to try to steer people to the right area.
