for instance..

you have a file name that has an & in it and you try downloading it you cant find the file cause it stops at getWebsiteUp, it cant seem to get the & because the address bar processes &'s differnetly

filedownnload.php?action=download&filename=getWebsiteUp&ampRunning.doc

try this:

<a href="blah.php?value=blah1<%=Server.URLEncode("&")%>blah2">click me</a>

or if that don't work then try this:

blah.php?val=tom%26jerry

should process $_GET['val'] as tom&jerry

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 :)

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.

Donations gratefully received
