Don't know if this helps but this file creates and .xml for me and works now I just need a form that will plugin the variables

<?php
  $item = array();
  $item [] = array(
  'title' => 'My daughter photo 1',
  'description' => 'images content demo for dynamic xml with lightbox,using images demo here.',
  'link' => "",
  'thumb' => "thumb/2.jpg",
  'content' => "contentpic/2a.jpg"
  );
   $item [] = array(
  'title' => 'My daughter photo 2',
  'description' => 'images content demo for dynamic xml with lightbox,using images demo here.',
  'link' => "",
  'thumb' => "thumb/2.jpg",
  'content' => "contentpic/3.jpg"
  );
    $item [] = array(
  'title' => 'My daughter photo 3',
  'description' => 'images content demo for dynamic xml with lightbox,using images demo here.',
  'link' => "",
  'thumb' => "thumb/2.jpg",
  'content' => "contentpic/4.jpg"
  );
  
  $doc = new DOMDocument();
  $doc->formatOutput = true;
  
  $r = $doc->createElement( "item" );
  $doc->appendChild( $r );
  
  foreach( $item as $list )
  {
  $b = $doc->createElement( "list" );
  
  $title = $doc->createElement( "title" );
  $title->appendChild(
  $doc->createTextNode( $list['title'] )
  );
  $b->appendChild( $title );
  
  $description = $doc->createElement( "description" );
  $description->appendChild(
  $doc->createTextNode( $list['description'] )
  );
  $b->appendChild( $description );
  
  $link = $doc->createElement( "link" );
  $link->appendChild(
  $doc->createTextNode( $list['link'] )
  );
  $b->appendChild( $link );
 
  $thumb = $doc->createElement( "thumb" );
  $thumb->appendChild(
  $doc->createTextNode( $list['thumb'] )
  );
  $b->appendChild( $thumb );
    
  $content = $doc->createElement( "content" );
  $content->appendChild(
  $doc->createTextNode( $list['content'] )
  );
  $b->appendChild( $content );
  
  
  $r->appendChild( $b );
  }
  
  echo $doc->saveXML();
  $doc->save("list.xml")
  ?>

thanks freshfitz but i think to solve this problem the php needs to delete a specific data the add a data in the place of the deleted one.
but i don't know how to do it.
