this is getting frustrating.. i have this code to show what users have requested to be your friends. and to show their info and have a button to accept them..

<center>
<b>Users that are requesting to be your friend.</b>
<?php
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM friends WHERE `friend` = '$_SESSION[username]' AND `accepted` = ''");
while ($array = mysql_fetch_array($query)){
$friend=$array['username'];
echo "<br><center><b>" .$friend. "</b></center>";
echo "<a href='sendMessage.php?to=" .$friend. "'>-Message " .$friend. "-</a> |<a href='getInfo.php?user=" .$friend."'> -Get Info-</a> | <a href='http://zycoworld.com/" .$friend. "'>-View zPage-</a> | <form action=\"\" method=\"post\">
      <table align=\"center\" border=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" cellpadding=\"3\">
<tr><td colspan=\"2\" align=\"right\"><input type=\"submit\" name=\"add\" value=\"-Accept-\"></td></tr>
</table>
</form>";
}
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM friends WHERE `friend` = '$_SESSION[username]' AND `accepted` = ''");
$array = mysql_fetch_array($query);
$friend=$array['username'];
if($_POST['add']){
mysql_query("UPDATE friends SET accepeted = yes WHERE username = $_SESSION[username], friend = $friend");
mysql_query("UPDATE friends SET accepeted = yes WHERE username = $friend, friend = $_SESSION[username]");
}
?>

the first half works! it shows the users requesting to be your friend.. BUT when i click the button to accept.. it doesnt update the table with "yes" in the accepted column... whats wrong. im going crazy here !!!!  ???  ???  ???

<?php
mysql_query("UPDATE friends SET accepeted = 'yes' WHERE username = '$friend' AND friend = 
'{$_SESSION['username']}'");
?>

also, are you sure the field "accepeted" is correctly spelled?

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 :)
