FRUSTRATED - Universal Email, Server Validations, Insert Record will not always work together

iMAC late 2009, OSX 10.9.5, PHP 5.4.30, MySQL 5.6, DWCS6

Frustrated rant follows... Using legacy Dreamweaver CS6 with your MySQLi server behaviors and the DataBridge extensions are killing me.

I've been 'messing' with this page for nearly three days trying to use several Webassist extensions but am running into difficulties: I can get the insert record to work but when I struggle to get the server validations to finally work (after some study), the insert record fails wihout errors or warning. I am also struggling to get the Universal email to work but have not been successful. Upload files seems to continue to work. The frustrations are from user interfaces I do not fully comprehend that require study and frequently consulting help - and sometimes I just touch something on the page (re: abstracts.php uploaded yesterday) and something else breaks.

I am beginning to believe the patching between legacy Dreamweaver CS6, MySQLi (v1.0.3) and DataBridge (v1.2.1) is causing me a lot of functional inconsistencies. Also, may I suggest that simplifying the input screens so non-programmers are prompted to fill-in minimal information with minimal variations and place the advanced configurations under separate screens would reduce misunderstanding as a possible cause of failure and greatly reduced help-desk calls from inexperienced builders or non-programmers who may not comprehend all the web programming jargon.

I am sending an updated version of abstracts.php that I've added server validations to that seem to work, but now the insert record function no longer inserts data into my MySQL db nor does the Universal Email function work.
