    I'm not entirely new to MySQL... but I'm have problems trying to use the "where blah = '$blah'." I would appriciate any help. Here is a snip of my code, what is wrong!?!!
    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana,Arial,Helvetica">code:</font><HR><pre>
    $result = mysql_query("select userid,username,password,email,level,misc FROM user where 1 and username like '$name' and password like '$userpassword' LIMIT 0, 2") or error_message('You have not been verified');
    $query_data = mysql_fetch_row($result);
    if ('$userpassword' != '$query_data[2]') {
    error_message('You Do Not Have Access To The News Updater');

    First what is this:

    "where 1 and.."?

    why do you have that? It's not necessary.

    Let me show you how I'd write that and you can try it.

    $result=mysql_query("select userid,username,password,email,level,misc from user where username='$name' and password='$userpassword'");
    if (!$result)
    // error message here

    Matt, I came across this old topic of yours and I am curious too about the 'WHERE 1 AND...' clause. I noticed Mysqladmin uses the same technique, and it seems to really speed up my queries (something about specifying which index to use?), but I really have no idea what it does. Do you know?
