Do it like this

echo "<form id='form1' name='form1' method='post' action='index.php?cellname=pagecells/admin/faq2.php&id=".$row['id']."'>";

Once you start a string with double quotes you can use single quotes within it to delimit HTML elements. It is a lot easier than keeping track of \" everywhere

You don't even have to exit the echo if you don't want to:
echo "<form id='form1' name='form1' method='post' action='index.php?cellname=pagecells/admin/faq2.php&id={$row['id']}'>";

Open in new window

Gota love this stuff I prob wasted hours over last two months sticking in those slashes lol

Anyway you sorted that line and I applied same method to this line...
echo "<td><input size='15' name='id' type='text' id='id' value='<?php echo ".$row['id']." ?>'></td>";

And this is what appears in the text box...
<?php echo 1 ?>

And all the others on the form, show the php around the data. Tried all sorts things for ages. You would think I would atleast get it accidently!
