Hi guys, i'm using a php response once the javascript has validated the form. I've tested it from(/on?) the server and the the form is submitting so javascript is working fine, then it reaches the php and although it was working fine earlier, displaying the 'score' etc now after i added some things it doesn't work. It just shows the variable name $userName. I think its a debugging problem that i just cant see. I am quite new to php so help would be much appreciated.

what does the error exactly says?
and what have you added before the error pops?

Mainly the email thing but then trying to fix it maybe more. There is no error because i though php had to be interpretted thus you couldn't really use an ide? Anyway yeah i still haven't found it.

there's no need really to use an IDE for php - a notepad will do. Ϋ
i haven't used any but i guess there's already an IDE for php.

anyway, i hope you get to know the problem.
:) good luck!
