I'm surprised you feel like you need a pivot table. It looks like there's a 1:1 or 1:* relationship between an account and a contact. So, you can likely simplify your table structure. What I'd do is combine the things that can only be applied once to the contact into one table: SSN DOB Home Phone Ce...

Your database idea has already been addressed by PDO. ;) For your mailer idea, you may also want to look into the Strategy Pattern.

Tip: never use the $_REQUEST super global array. It contains everything in GET, POST, and COOKIE.

If you have a cookie named 'blah' that contains...

It would probably help if you explained what you mean by 'freeze columns/panes'. Also, what part should be frozen? Why aren't they frozen now?

Your mistake is that you keep redefining your checkForm function over and over again. The end result is that only your last definition of the function, which checks the last input, actually exists.

FWIW, using a member's registration timestamp as a salt is pretty common. It's unique, and unique to each user.

If I'm reading the description of your problem right, your error stems from your validation logic cascade.

You can't have anything that's supposed to be put to the screen before a header function call. So, removing the <head> but keeping everything else won't work. <head> does not equal header. <head> means document head. The header function in PHP sends a HTTP header. They're not the s...

You can't send header information after anything is sent to the browser. This means any HTML, even if it's only in the head. Your structure outputs HTML ( then tries to use a header to change the page's location (in, which is what causes it to break. You'll need to figu...
