<form action=add.php method=post>
<input type=hidden name=type value=room>
<input type=hidden name=area value=[!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]<?php [!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]echo $area; [!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]?>[!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]>


i don understadn this. When pass to next form for processing, the [!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]name[!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--] is used or the [!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]value [!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]is used?

and then, 2nd question: why the value could be a varibale as following?

value=[!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]<?php [!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]echo $area; [!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]?>[!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]>

can someone explain to me. It's quite confusing and i'm totally new to php and server side scripting..

the name in your input in your case 'area' (btw, you need quotes around it) is the name of the variable you are passing. well actually, it's a key name in the $_POST or $_GET array..


Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
