tx i've fixed it now.
Now i have another issue. if i log in it says im logged in with the login screen instead of the usersupdate.php page.
so what i did was follow the instructions on this threat showthread.php?t=23112
but now i get a blank page with the words "You have been logged in"
here is the link login.php?loggedIn=1
am i missing something?
Ps. is it fine if i ask about my issues in the same threat as i go along?
