Hello everybody!
I'm a total newbie when it comes to PHP, but decided today I'd need it. Ahem. Looking for new challenges or something like that... but I reached the point where I jsut want to bang my head repeatedly against the wall.

I downloaded Enthusiast 2, managed to get all the settings + database,
but when I add the code to my page, the freaking form/date/etc. doesn't show up.
Is there anything I keep forgetting?
I just simply added the code in the body-part... Argh, I feel stupid.

Help would be loved, thanks in advance.

You did save the file with a .php extension, didn't you? And you are running the page on a server, aren't you? Otherwise, the php is not going to be executed.

So, can you provide a link to it on the server as well as some of your code (we don't need 500 lines of html, though).

Dumb question. Your server does support php, right?

In case any other forum members have a similar problem, what was the solution?
