Hey, i'm making a forum and am having a little trouble with updating a post.

I have an edit button, it gets the post and puts it into a text box, but once finished editing, it will not update the post! I made it echo the message before updating and its the right thing and it doesn't give any errors.


mysql_query("UPDATE posts SET post = '$post' WHERE postid = '$postid'") or die("Could not edit post.");


Is there anything wrong with the above is it something else in the code?

Why? I'm only getting that error when i remove the ' from it, i don't get any error the way i have it.


Anyway, i did what you said, and i edited a post and put "Test Post..." in the textarea and the mysql error was:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Post...\r\n WHERE postid=' at line 1


Oh, and also, i tried making it remove the post and readd it with the same data but a different message and it failed too. But if i make a new topic or reply it works fine!
