I have no idea if someone can help me with this or not but since my programmer is gone for 24hrs, I need to ask someone.

I am seeing the following error in the apache logs;

PHP Warning:  mysql_fetch_row() expects parameter 1 to be resource, string given in app.php on line 103

Line 103 is;

$select = mysql_fetch_row($query);

The line before that is;

$result = execQuery($dbconn,$query);

Your example link doesn't seem to lead to anything.

So it's just a warning, nothing to be concerned about? Or, does it possibly mean it is not finding the data?

Ok, so it looks like the programmer just missed this because everything else is using mysqli.
He just needs to update this then.
