Edited 3 Years Ago by Reverend Jim: Fixed formatting

Here are some things you need to fix.
You are checking if $_GET is set. Say, for example, the user follows a link and gets to this page. comments.php?id=4 . Then it will enter the condition isset($_GET) and does the required action. But, when the user fills in the comment and clicks on submit, $_GET doesn't hold any value anymore. So, it skips isset($_GET) block.
Secondly, there is no session_start. And, most importantly, don't use @ to supress the errors. You will never know where you are going wrong.

now can you advice me,
as you said if the user writes a comment it will skip the isset($_GET) function.
what can i do to make it work because i`m using as you explained above that the user must follow the link.
I removed the @ symbol nothing changed.

pass id in a hidden field when the form is submitted. Use $_REQUEST instead of $_GET. $_REQUEST can handle both $_GET and $_POST. Thats all !
Oh, have session_start on top of your script.

This script is also vulnerable to sql injection.

Always filter your input variables.

Google "sql injection prevention in php" or someone will steal all of your data and compromise your accounts. It would take under 5 minutes with this script.

You need to do length checking, and character filtering.

If you accept input data when building login form, filter for XSS as well.

This applies to all scripts even non-login pages since your registered users can use SQL injection too. Very scary stuff...

-r

i never used hidden values,
if can show me how accodding to my code i`ll appreciate.

Simple. The first time you follow the link, you will have the id. <input type="hidden" name="id" value="<?php echo $id; ?>"> where $id is id's value.
