    $form.='<form action=\ "'.$PHP_SELF.'\"';

    (dunno y the other one shouldn't work... it may be a problem elsewhere that shows up there)

    [a tip.... on the line with the die statement and other lines that are outputting static text to the browser, try to use single quotes not double ones, then php wont bother looking for variables to replace and evaluate.... then your code will be much quicker ]

    i think the most likely reason is the space between \ and " before $PHP_SELF.

    $form.="<form action=\"$PHP_SELF\"";

    also who made this forum or where can i download a copy for my website. one of the best i've seen

    Bris; I wrote the forum, but its not currently available for download. On my next vacation from uni, i am planning to rewrite all the code behind developer fusion to make it more extensible so that the code can be sold on for anyone else who wants to use bits of it.
