Ie. Your not sure wether you have a php or Ajax issue?

Pick the one that makes the most sense to you, and one of us will move it if we determine it should be moved.
My goal in replying to posts is to help you become a better programmer, including learning how to debug your own code and research problems. For that reason, rather than posting the solution, I reply with tips and hints on how to find the solution yourself. See below for useful links when you get stuck.

Regrettably I broke a rule (I won't do this again) when making a double post. I did however receive completely different answers, so I guess this is what spurred me on to write this.

Is it deemed acceptable to rewrite a question, say after a few days, and repost in a different phpfreaks forum?

We'd prefer you post in the original thread.
