Possibly because your questions are poorly phrased; fully of irritating stuff like plz, ur, srry; often appear to have mostly ignored any constructive suggestions about solving your problem; and are poorly thought out.

If you want people to help you, put some effort into it. Otherwise, people will simply move on to help someone else.

Use whole sentences. Use whole words. Use punctuation. Use thought before posting. Read replies.

There have been alot of posts about [code=php:0]if($_POST['submit']){[/code]

Maybe one of the moderators can make a sticky reguarding this issue.

^ Wouldn't that do nothing? I'd think you'd need to do something like if (isset($_POST['submit'])) { ... but why?

What I do personally is create a hidden field and check if that has been submitted--that way, they can't mess it up since it's in the HTML...

Here, i'm just going to write it for you...Please ask questions if they're something that just seems out there--because they're a reson for everything. :)
[code]
<?php
if (isset($_POST['submitted'])) {
    $errors = array();
    if (empty($_POST['username'])) {
        $errors[] = 'You did not enter a username.';
    }
    else {
        $username = $_POST['username'];
    }
    if (empty($_POST['password'])) {
        $errors = 'You did not enter a password.';
    }
    else {
        $pw = $_POST['password'];
    }
    if (empty($_POST['password2'])) {
        $errors[] = 'You did not confirm your password.';
    }
    else {
        $pw2 = $_POST['password'];
    }
    if ($pw != $pw2) {
        $errors[] = 'Your password and confirmed password do not match.';
    }
    if (empty($errors)) { // No errors, so continue with script...
        // First, make sure the username doesn't already exist
        $query = "SELECT username FROM users WHERE username='$username'";
        $result = mysql_query($query);
        if (mysql_num_rows($query) == 0) { // No results come back, so can register
            $query = "INSERT INTO users (username, password) VALUES ('$username', SHA('$pw'))";
            // SHA() encrypts it, always incrypt passwords! :)
            $result = mysql_query($query);
            if ($result) {
                echo $username.', you have been sucessfully registered.';
                // Send an email if you wanna
            }
            else {
                echo mysql_error();
            }
        }
        else {
            echo 'Someone with that username has already registered.';
        }
    }
    else {
        foreach ($errors as $msg) {
            echo '<li> '.$msg.'</li>';
        }
    }
}
else {
    echo '<form action="register.php" method="post">
    <B>Username:</b> <input type="text" name="username" value="';
    if (isset($_POST['username'])) {
        echo stripslashes($_POST['username']);
    }
    echo '"><br>
    <b>Password:</b> <input type="password" name="password"><br>
    <b>Confirm Password:</b> <input type="password" name="password2"><br>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Register">
    <input type="hidden" name="submitted" value="TRUE">
    </form>';
}
?>
