debugging new user script

Recommended Posts

this is a script that validates a users input, from a previous page.  2 problems,

1.    the information is being sent as get ($_GET)  but the form says <form action = 'validation_form.php' action = 'post'>
2.    the form is continually displayed, even when the information is correct

the form is continually displayed through an include file.  if the previous data is wrong, then redisplay the form, which send to the same page checks then loops.

i cant seem to get the validation to work


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="B_A-CSS.css">



$Wrong = "NO";
$Form = "NO";

if($_POST['Email'] != $_POST['Re_Email']){$Wrong = "YES";}

foreach($_POST as $field){
        $Wrong = "YES";

if($Empty = "YES"){
    $Form = "YES";

    $Individual = "NO";

    while($Individual == "NO"){
        $Security_Number = rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9)." - ".rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9)." - ".rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9).rand(0, 9);

        $S_N_SQL = "SELECT Security_Number FROM Table_1 WHERE Security_Number = '".$Security_Number."'";

        include('inc files/Database link.inc');

        $Query = @mysql_query($S_N_Query, $DB_Server);
            $Individual = "YES";

    setcookie("User_Name", "'".$_POST['User_Name']."'", strtotime(' + 1 day'));
    setcookie("Password", "'".$_POST['Password']."'", strtotime(' + 1 day'));

i dont need to include the other inc files, because i can tell that the error is in the loop.

all help is appreciated


please dont comment about any bad formating.  I am coppying from a page which reformats to a word wrap style look, but infact creates tabs and all sorts.  im trying to change it.  especially the loops may be a little messy.

Quick observation.  To test for equality, you need to use the equality operator (==) so change:
[code]if($Empty = "YES"){[/code]


[code]if($Empty == "YES"){[/code]
