Can someone tell me why both of these won't run on the same page? It only displays the second one.

function cheatlog()
$numbers = "50000000";
$page = '<center><p><b><u>If any users are listed below, it means they have cheats on their account.<br>Contact an administrator right away.</u></b><br /><br />';
$page .= '<hr>Number Cheat<hr><table width="50%">';
$result = doquery("SELECT number FROM {{table}} WHERE number > '$numbers' ORDER BY username", 'regusers');

$page .= '<tr><td><b>User Name</b></td><td><b>Number</b></td></tr>';

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
$page .= "<tr><td>".$row["username"]."</td><td>".$row["number"]."</td></tr>";

$page .= '</table></center>';

$points = "5000";
$page = '<center><p><br /><br />';
$page .= '<hr>Points Cheat<hr><table width="50%">';
$ptsresult = doquery("SELECT points FROM {{table}} WHERE points > '$points' || maxpoints > '$points' ORDER BY username", 'regusers');

$page .= '<tr><td><b>User Name</b></td><td><b>Current Points</b></td><td><b>Maximum Points</b></td></tr>';

while($ptsrow = mysql_fetch_array($ptsresult))
$page .= "<tr><td>".$ptsrow["username"]."</td><td>".$ptsrow["points"]."</td><td>".$ptsrow["maxpoints"]."</td></tr>";

$page .= '</table></center>';

display($mainpage, 'Cheat Log');

Comment the 2nd one out and see if the first one works then. If not there is buggy code in your first statement.

I'm guessing that there are no results from you're query. If you are on a local environment, or have PHPMyAdmin Access, filter that query into its sql string and run that through the direct sql entry.

Ok if I comment out the second while loop, the first one works perfect. But if I uncomment it, then the first one disappears. Regardless of entries, it should at least comes up with <hr>Number Cheat<hr> on the page.

Sorry, I missed this one: $page = '<center><p><br /><br />';.
Should be $page .= .

Hmmm seems we all missed it :O
Wow that was strange :(

Ah yeah I've missed that before in scripts. It's possibly the smallest thing you can miss.

I tested it and sure enough that was the problem. There was 2 missing the periods. Thanks Fou!

NP mate, I hate missing these .'s; they can take awhile to debug.
I used to hear horror stories from back-in-the-day programmers. They spent weeks punching their cards out and placing them outside of their dormroom doors to have compiled and run, and a week later they get their results - Syntax error -_-. I'm glad I'm not from those days... lol.

Wow seriously, that would be horrible.
