In a php script I'm using the Registration page only had fields for name and email address, basically. I added fields, just by copying the code on the page. I added Address1, Address2, City and State. Then I added those fields to the mysql db.

However, I need help with two things, when I Submit, and some field happens to be incomplete an error message appears and asks the user to complete. All fields remain filled, except the ones I added. How to I keep my just-added-fields populated, like the rest of the fields?

And secondly, when I tested my additions, by registering, my newly added fields info, didn't get added to the db.

Your help will be appreciated.

At a quick glance Ive noticed you have for the first original two:

<b>[var.lang_first_name]:</b>
 and
<b>[var.lang_last_name]:</b>

whereas for the new fields you have only printed them

<b>Address 1:</b>

Think we would need to see the processing code in order to see why it isnt showing the extra fields and inserting!
