(Line 56) $updt = "UPDATE HillHouse SET content='$_POST['pCContent']', date='$_POST['date']', time='$_POST['time']' 
WHERE name='$pagename'";

the error I'm getting is:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in ******************************** on line 56

It is connecting to the database fine.

I think this may be in the wrong place - sorry if it is. Its just it uses php aswell so...

Thanks for your help. It's probably something stupid i've missed!

Im not sure but i think its cause you got the '$_POST['whatever']'.
The quote marks are the same..
Try setting all the $_POST as variables.

So like $whatever = $_POST['whatever'];

and then insert '$whatever'.

Hope this helps  ;)

This is wrong: you use single quotes within a single-quoted string:

content='$_POST['pCContent']' AND date='$_POST['date']'
