session variable or form variable

session variable or form variable

I'm not sure which to use here - I have a field (frontpage) in a mySQL database which is set up as ENUM with the possible values 'y','n' - I want to be able to pull a listing which has 'y' against it into the attached page and have altered the recordset so that it shows frontpage = the session variable y; when I test it it works, but when I upload to my testing server (MAMP) it just shows a blank page.
So I'm wondering if I should be using one of the other options instead - I wondered whether it ought to be entered value but (and perhaps I'm over-analysing this) I thought that probably meant an entered value in a form (eg where one is making a choice).
Hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance.

When a page displays blank in the browser it means a php error has occurred but error reporting is turned off.

Add the following code at line 1 to turn error reporting on so we can debug the error:
