Re: nead help with some code

Oh, and to address the question about live updating, it's carried out via AJAX/javascript. The most common way is to assign a function to a key press or key up event to a form field that submits the value of that field to a php page and uses the returned value to change the page in some way. It's probably easier to return the value as JSON (PHP 5+ has a function to convert an object or array to json)

Re: nead help with some code

I had a look at your code and posted some changes here (untested) http://www.scutterman.com/Bravenet/kingjack-medieval-registration.txt

I modified the forms to only use $regform and make the form code:
* More readable
* Have no duplicated code
* Allow the servers to remain selected if the validation tests fail
* Allow easy addition of servers, or even automated population of servers from a database

Some suggestions I would make are:

* Why put a maximum length on a password? Especially since you're hashing it.
* If you're using a server that uses magic_quotes_gpc, don't rely on them to make your database queries secure. Always run your own validation on input that ensures that it is safe to use in a query, or use PDO for database functions and PDO->prepare() if you have access to it.
* The rand() function can produce predictable results, consider mt_rand() instead
* When INSERTing data to the database, specify the columns you're inserting before specifying values. That way it's easier to change the database structure without breaking existing code.

Re: nead help with some code

The $(this) selector doesn't have any children in that context, you need to use $(this).parent() as per this modified example http://scutterman.com/Bravenet/js-show-hide/

As an aside, ensure your dom structure is valid, and try not to use depreciated elements like - the W3C validator and a valid doctype can help with this.
If you look at the example, some of the structure and css has been modified to adhere to XHTML 1.0 Strict.
I'm not sure of the doctype or underlying structure of your live version, but I usually work in strict to ensure future compatibility.

Re: nead help with some code

I modified it to use .closest() rather than .parent() and it's working now.
