I have added a new timestamp field to my table. I have added the field name to the insert command in the form yet when I get the results back I just get 00000000000000. I image that I need to add NOW() to this, but I cant figure out how.

Here is the insert section:

mysql_select_db('test');
$query = "insert into support values
('".$id."', '".$time."', '".$number."', '".$domainname."', '".$fpon."', '".$comments."', '".$name."', '".$email."')";


Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Bruce

Assuming that the user is not supposed to provide the timestamp, I imagine you want to replace $time with NOW(). So:

$query = "insert into support values ('$id', NOW(), '$number', '$domainname', '$fpon', '$comments', '$name', '$email')";

Otherwise, $time probably contains a UNIX timestamp, which isn't the same as a MySQL timestamp:

$query = "insert into support values ('".$id."', '".date('Y-m-d H:i:s', $time)."', '".$number."', '".$domainname."', '".$fpon."', '".$comments."', '".$name."', '".$email."')";
