Hey
I have a date of birth field and I wanted to implode it from it's separate fields into
one field by using implode i wanted to make it NN/NN/NNNN, so if i wanted to use
this information when changing passwords i can explode it etc.

my error:
Warning: Wrong parameter count for implode() in /home/**/func.php on line 128

my code:
$doba = MakeSafe($_POST[dobd]);
$dobm = MakeSafe($_POST[dobm]);
$doby = Makesafe($_POST[doby]);
$Dob = implode('/', '$doba','$dobm','$doby');

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 :)

The implode() function takes an array as the second paramter, not strings. You can achieve the what you're looking for in two ways:
1)
<?php
$doba = MakeSafe($_POST[dobd]);
$dobm = MakeSafe($_POST[dobm]);
$doby = Makesafe($_POST[doby]);
$Dob = implode('/', array($doba,$dobm,$doby));
?>

2)
<?php
$tmp = array();
$tmp[] = MakeSafe($_POST[dobd]);
$tmp[] = MakeSafe($_POST[dobm]);
$tmp[] = Makesafe($_POST[doby]);
$Dob = implode('/', $tmp);
?>

^ that's a whole lot of extra work for simply making a string of values seperated by a / ...sure, it might be all fancy looking, but again, this does the same thing:

<?php
$doba = MakeSafe($_POST[dobd]);
$dobm = MakeSafe($_POST[dobm]);
$doby = Makesafe($_POST[doby]);
$Dob = "$doba/$dobm/$doby";
?>

Yes, I know, but the OP asked about using the implode() function, so I gave him examples using the function.

Of course your example can be reduced to:
<?php
$dob = MakeSafe($_POST['dobd']) . '/' . MakeSafe($_POST['dobm']) . '/' . MakeSafe($_POST['doby']);
?>

if the only posted variables you have are those 3, then all you have to do is this:

$dob = implode('/',$_POST);
