Re: [Sara_Samsara] Query String Problem In reply to
Could be several things. Crap coding; needs to use GET instead of POST, or just a general browser issue where it is not sending stuff correctly.

What is the scripts name? ... and what browser are you using?

Also, why not use a decent board like YaBB, YapBB, Ikonboard, GForum? There is an absolute ton of decent ones around Tongue
