I have 2 forms on one page, a logon, and a register, both have a custom image submit button, how do I detect which button is clicked on in the php, so i could insert the info in the database ? I tried assigning a name to them and put isset($_POST['button_name']) but that doesnt appear to work

as u have 2 separate forms then u can pass 2 diff hidden value and check that value in form submit....
like for login it can be

<input type="hidden" name="LogHid" value="LogHid">

and for register

<input type="hidden" name="LogRegister" value="LogRegister">

based on form submit u will get any one value...

i dont think that will work, because if I check the variable by isset, both will turn out active, and the form will try to process both forms

If you have two forms, after submit, PHP jjust will receive the data from each form
<form name="form1" action="page.php">
<input type="hidden" name="LogHid" value="LogHid">
</form>

<form name="form2" action="page.php">
<input type="hidden" name="LogRegister" value="LogRegister">
</form>

If you submit form1so then
isset($_POST['LogHid']) will return true
and
isset($_POST['"LogRegister']) will return false
