    Echo Problem Help

    Hello. On one page, called editor.php, I have a tinymce editor with a text area that can be submitted. It has a name of "elm1". On a second page (the page that submit directs to called outputpage.php) I have
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $content 
    $_POST[elm1];
    echo 
    $content
    ?>
    But it won't show what was in the elm1 text area.

    Here's the code for the editor page.
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

    But my problem is that when I click submit, the outputpage.php does not show anything...

    Please, your help is much appreciated.

    I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with that.. Do I add it to "$_POST[elm1];"?

    Thanks.

    Change to:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $content 
    $_POST['elm1'];
    echo 
    $content
    ?>
    You need ' ' inside bracket values,

    I just realized you don't have a semicolon (at least not in your example) after the echo, this could be a simple problem:
    PHP Code:
    <?php 
    $content 
    $_POST['elm1']; 
    echo 
    $content
    ?>

    If that doesn't work, show the full form before the POST.
    Rowsdower! has accused me of having mental problems, and the administrator allowed it. What a great forum huh?

    No that wouldn't be the problem. You don't need a semi-colon if the line of code is the last line before ?>.
