this is as far as i could get with the checking part. this isn't homework or anything just fun.

$guess = ($_POST['guess']);

$wds = array(rat, cat, mouse, meow, tree, house, goat, hat, grass, people, spider);

if ($turn == 11 Xor $word == "correct"){
shuffle ($wds);
$check = array($spwds);

thank you in advance

are you trying to search for one letter in a word of an item of the array or search in the array for a word for them to enter?

Would you be able to post the whole code as the code in post #1 $spwds and that var hasn't been set in the code.

$find = 'something';

foreach ($wds as $key => $val)
if (strpos($val, $find) !== false)
[code for a match found here]
