It's probably your register_globals setting. with it off, you have to use the HTTP_*_VARS or _* variables where * is GET, COOKIE, or POST. With it on, those are still available, but you also have the form element names registered.
<input type=text name=foo> With register globals on, you have a variable $foo that contains the user input. This is probably how you were doing it before. With a new installation of PHP4, register_globals defaults to off, however. ---John Holmes... ----- Original Message ----- From: "Nicolas Costes" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "1LT John W.
