INSERT fails using mySQLi tools

I'm trying to implement an INSERT using your mySQLi tools, and it looks like the fields are mapped right, and the form is set to 'self', but on SUBMIT, the form just resets, and no actual insert happens. Everything looks right so I can't figure out what's going on. What am I missing that might cause this behavior?

the form element:
<form action="guest-profiles.php" id="Guest" name="Guest">

does not set the method. the Default method that is used when none is specified is the GET, the insert needs to have the method use the Post method.

edit the form tag to set the method to post:
<form action="guest-profiles.php" id="Guest" name="Guest" method="post">


in the future, please don't paste the code int your message, instead attach a the page to the post.

you have a logout behavior on the page set to trigger on any form post.

so by submitting the form, you are login out.

Ah.. I didn't see that.. thanks for the clarification. I'm still wrapping my head around this new set of methods.

Next issue

Stupid mistake on my part, sorry. I should have seen that. Next problem though is that upon SUBMIT, I get kicked out to my "failed login" page.. like the authorization restriction function (from the same suite of tools) doesn't see me as authorized to load the page, even though clearly I am because I was able to load the page to begin with BEFORE the SUBMIT. Ideas?

When I remove the Restriction function, everything works great. It might be somehow related to the Name field of the restriction? I'm unclear where it's getting this value from, so I can't track it down. Is it a session variable somewhere? How does this work?

the name field for the restriction should beset to the same as the name set on the login page.

on the login page, you set a name for the login, use that same name in the restriction behavior.
