avatar Keeping entered info on failed validation

How can I stop a form from loosing the data inputted if the validation fails?

A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice.

check section 4 page 9 of the first cd.

/html/php/php4p9.html

Basically with each text input box you need to add a value="<? echo $variable ?>"
for radio and dropdown boxes if it needs to be selected then use selected="selected" or checked="checked"

for text areas echo the data between the tags

Use sessions, this way the data will be available until the user closes their browser or overwrite the session data.

session_start();

$_SESSION['sname'] = $_POST['sname'];

...value="<?php echo $_SESSION['sname']"...
