Hello!

You are using somewhere in your code $_POST['name'] and the index name does not (yet) exist.
If you simply don't want the error to display use at the beginning of your code error_reporting(0);

You should follow the train of operations and see if and when $_POST['name'] is called because there is the problem.

Best thing to do would be to get rid of the errors. They indicate that there is someting wrong with the script. If so, it should not be online for everyone to see. You can choose not to display errors, but that doesn't mean that there is none.

Edit your settings in php.ini to send errors to a log file and not to the screen. In the short term you can try adding this line to the PHP script

ini_set('display_errors', 0 );

The settings you can change in php.ini for error logging are documented here http://uk.php.net/manual/en/errorfunc.configuration.php#ini.display-errors and to set an error log see the last entery on the list http://uk.php.net/manual/en/errorfunc.configuration.php#ini.error-log
