did you remove your username and password from the following line for security or there isn't any.

mysql_connect("localhost","","") or  die ("Unable to connect to database");

mysql_select_db("test_toaster",$dblink) or die ("Unable to select database test_toaster");

If it's because you don't have any set then use:

mysql_connect("localhost")

Also store the return link to a variable and use it within the other mysql queries:

$dblink = mysql_connect("localhost")

$question_insert = mysql_query("INSERT INTO question VALUES ('','$Content','Fill in','','','$Private',4,$Difficulty_Level,1111,2222),$dblink");

And do the same for the other queries.

If this is not the problem tell me what error message you are getting or what is not happening.

You really do not need to save the return thing from the database, php does this automatically when you only have one db-connection.

I see something very wrong in your script:

if (($question_insert== TRUE) and (($answer1_insert==TRUE) || ($answer2_insert==TRUE) || ($answer3_insert==TRUE)
||($answer4_insert==TRUE))

This of course should be:

if (($question_insert== TRUE) && (($answer1_insert==TRUE) || ($answer2_insert==TRUE) || ($answer3_insert==TRUE)
||($answer4_insert==TRUE))

Php doesn't recognize "and" instead use "&&"

ThX andriv. the query syntax was part of the problem. the major problem was the the conditional statement with one and the 4 or's.
Marsman, PHP recognizes "and"! it works with me in another scripts..
Finally the code is working with me. here you go:
-------------------------------------------
<?
 mysql_connect("localhost","","") or  die ("Unable to connect to database");
 mysql_select_db("test_toaster") or die ("Unable to select database test_toaster");

 if ($Private!="Y") { $Private="N";}

 $question_insert = mysql_query("INSERT INTO question VALUES ('','$Content','Fill in','','','$Private',4,$Difficulty_Level,1111,2222)");
 $id=mysql_insert_id ();

   if ($answer1!="")
   $answer1_insert=mysql_query("INSERT INTO question_correct_answers (question_id,correct_answer) VALUES ($id,'$answer1')");
   if ($answer2!="")
   $answer2_insert=mysql_query("INSERT INTO question_correct_answers (question_id,correct_answer) VALUES ($id,'$answer2')");
   if ($answer3!="")
   $answer3_insert=mysql_query("INSERT INTO question_correct_answers (question_id,correct_answer) VALUES ($id,'$answer3')");
   if ($answer4!="")
   $answer4_insert=mysql_query("INSERT INTO question_correct_answers (question_id,correct_answer) VALUES ($id,'$answer4')");

 //if (($question_insert== TRUE) and ((((($answer1_insert==TRUE) || ($answer2_insert==TRUE)) || (($answer3_insert==TRUE))) ||($answer4_insert==TRUE))
 $first_two = ($answer1_insert==TRUE) || ($answer2_insert==TRUE);
 $second_two = ($answer3_insert==TRUE) || ($answer4_insert==TRUE);
 $answers_insert = ($first_two==TRUE) || ($second_two==TRUE);

 if  (($question_insert== TRUE) and  ($answers_insert==TRUE))
 {
   print "Your question has be successfully stored<BR>";
 }
 mysql_close();
?>

Marsman you can also use "or" instead of ||

most people do not use "and" or "or" because it makes it harder to spot an error.
