On first inspection this bit

$search."AND

raises my suspicions. I don't know what's in $search but I would put a space in front of that AND

$sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT event_title,event_body,event_start,event_stop
                         FROM `events2`
                         WHERE `event_title` ".$search." AND
                                event_start > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH)
                         ORDER BY event_start desc
                    ");

search is getting a pattern (top line) from the database to search for matched date entries from event title

fixed "and" space still no joy
//$search="LIKE \'%bible%acevic%\'";
//$search="LIKE '".$row['search_info']."'";
$search="LIKE '".$search."'";

$sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT event_title,event_body,event_start,event_stop FROM `events2` WHERE `event_title` ".$search." AND event_start > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH) ORDER BY event_start desc");

Change it like so and post back what it says

//$search="LIKE \'%bible%acevic%\'";
//$search="LIKE '".$row['search_info']."'";
$search="LIKE '".$search."'";

$sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT event_title,event_body,event_start,event_stop FROM `events2` WHERE `event_title` $search AND event_start > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 6 MONTH) ORDER BY event_start desc")
[b]or die( "Failed with " . mysql_error() );[/b]

i think i got it now, can really confirm but it looks like it changed the listing im testing. this shows all future listings and takes from current date and displays 6 months in the past

that is what i wanted.

and to note i always got info(no errors) just didnt get correct listing

thanks for the help bportlock would not of gotten it with out you, you made me look for mistakes, and re-look at how i was getting the data

im gonna accept your first answer, i hate that inspiration is not counted here, let alone the actual answer

$sql2 = mysql_query("SELECT event_title,event_body,event_start,event_stop FROM `events2` WHERE `event_title` ".$search." AND DATE_SUB(CURDATE(),INTERVAL 6 MONTH) <= event_start ORDER BY event_start desc");
