if you click on one of the blog titles on the 'blog.php' page, the 'article.php' page is blank where the article should be...

well, that would mean there is a problem with the recordset to return the articles on the article.php page.


to see what the recordset SQL that is being generated is, add the following code in the body tag:

php:
<?php echo($query_limit_BlogRS); ?>



it looks like you are using mod rewrite on this page, the rewrite rule may not be passing the expected URL variables.

the recordset is expecting URL variables named perm or id, to see what URL variable are being passed, use the following code in the body:

php:
<?php vart_dump($_GET); ?>

OK, I get the following:

SELECT * FROM blog WHERE BlogID = -1 OR BlogPermalink = 'It--s-all-About-the-Experience' LIMIT 0, 0
Fatal error: Call to undefined function vart_dump() in /home/motle8wh/public_html/article.php on line 87



What can I infer from this please?

3 things:

1) the limit being added to the recordset is causing it to be blank:
LIMIT 0, 0

tells my sql to limit the result to 0. remove this line:
$query_limit_BlogRS = sprintf("%s LIMIT %d, %d", $query_BlogRS, $startRow_BlogRS, $maxRows_BlogRS);

2) the perm URL variable is passing correctly

3) I have a syntax error:
<?php vart_dump($_GET); ?>

should be:
<?php var_dump($_GET); ?>

OK, have removed that line and replaced the line from no 3. and getting "Query was empty"

ok, change this line:
$BlogRS = mysql_query($query_limit_BlogRS, $PowerCMSConnection) or die(mysql_error());

to:
$BlogRS = mysql_query($query_BlogRS, $PowerCMSConnection) or die(mysql_error());

thats perfect Jason... thanks

now, last question is what would have done that (added the limit) that caused this issue in the first place?
