This is very frustrating for me, but I have the following query and it will not add the date field since there are not quotes around it.  Regardless of how I structure the quotes, the dang page will not load properly due to encapsulated quotes.


$sql_fields = "'.$date.'", "'.$directions.'", "'.$video.'", "'.$videolink.'", "'.$totalquestions.'", "'.$totalinputs.'", "'.$dateadded.'", "'.$addedby.'";

That maybe the data but that's not the whole query.  Since your start and end quotes are double quotes, you don't need to use the '.' syntax to include variables.  This is what I would do with that data:

$sql_fields = "'$date', '$directions', '$video', '$videolink', '$totalquestions', '$totalinputs', '$dateadded', '$addedby'";
