ereg_replace() in PHP - stupid errors!
I have just been writing a new user account interface in PHP, and I tried the following;

$line = ereg_replace(":::closed_tickets:::",$closed_tickets, $line);

I noticed that it was replacing :::closed_tickets::: with a blank (i.e nothing). After a bit more debugging (working out if the values were actually being set in the script), I had a random idea to quote the variable... i.e so it looks like this;

$line = ereg_replace(":::closed_tickets:::","$closed_tickets", $line);

Note the quotes around $close_tickets.

Just thought I would post this handy thing to know... it had me baffled for a couple of hours :(
