Hey David,

Well basically I think it's a problem with the declaration of variables
and/or the way they are being processed by the form.

Here is the individual addNews function:

function addNews() {
       global $db;

       /* declare variables here? */

       /* insert the new news entry */
       $query = "INSERT INTO news" .
          "VALUES('',$id,'{$_POST['postdate']}'," .

       /* if statement to process the input? */


       echo "New News Entry Added!<BR>\n";
       echo "<a href='{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}" .
         "?action='addNews'>Back to Blog</a><BR>";

       /* adds a form where the administrator to add news */

       echo "<HR width='400'><BR>";
       echo "<FORM action=".$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."?action='addNews'

       echo "<TABLE width='485'><TR><TD class='BlogTitlebar'>Make a new
entry: </TD></TR></TABLE>";

       echo "<TABLE border='0' width='485' class='commentBG'>";
       echo "<TR><TD>Title: </TD></TR><BR>";
       echo "<TR><TD><input type='text' " . "width='30'
       echo "<TR><TD>News: </TD></TR><BR>";
       echo "<TR><TD><TEXTAREA cols='40' rows='5' " .
       echo "<TR><TD><input type='submit' name='submit' value='submit'";
         "<input type='hidden' name='action' value='addNews'>";
       echo "</FORM></TD></TR>";
       echo "</TABLE>";
       echo "<BR>";
       echo "<HR width='400'>";


and here is the error it produces so far (obviously I know that as it is it
wont work but my problem is that I don't know exactly what to do to it go
get it to work...:P)
