Been kind of following this thread off and on...

If the syntax is acceptable by MySQL, which it appears to be, is it possible
that the variables you are using within the query string are not set to
anything? Or is it possible that there is something broken immediately
before the query string is fired?

Most times, when I run into query problems, immediately before I send the
query to the database, I'll echo the statement out to the browser so I can
see the exact string that's being sent to the db.

So can you do this:

$sql = "INSERT INTO log SET term='$search', returns='$arrayword',
time=CURTIME(), date=CURDATE(), ip='$ip'";

echo $sql;

$logit = mysql_query($sql) or

And check out what gets spit out to the browser when $sql is echoed? Maybe
that'll point out something that's going wrong. If nothing is apparent, post
the results of echo $sql back to the list and maybe one of us will find
