This is not the global that is meant on the update. Not the global $var that you put inside your functions.
That's scope, btw. You are making a variable available inside a different scope (the function), by making it "global". The global you are searching for is, like when you submit a form, a field name becomes a varible on the "action" page with the same name. So: <input name="username"... Would create a $username variable. Not anymore :-) Now you need to specify where it came from, either with $_POST or $HTTP_POST_VARS. So... action page again: $username = $_POST['username']; But, if you don't want to convert your script (and I object btw, you should ;-), you can modify a line at php.ini so variables are *globally registered* again. -- Julio Nobrega.
