We had some half-assed newbie web site developer redesign our website last year (which he never finished/ refused to make any updates even after he had been paid in full). I believed he used PHP to allow us to add information to our website through an internal form submission that would automatically update on any of our web pages. i.e. "add new staff member" in "about us" page or "add new property" in "locations" page. Well, today I'm trying to add a new staff member using this form and it wouldn't update the info to our website. Is it possible his code is wrong? Is it an easy fix (for someone with basic html knowledge) or do we need to get someone professional to do it?

If someone here could maybe assist or give direction, that would be great.

I have access to our website and his PHP code for this specification function and page.

Hope this makes sense - thank you.

May be a little too late, but without looking at the errors / source code, there's no telling what went wrong.

Well, the weird part is that earlier this year I was able to "add property" using the internal submission form and it automatically updated our website. Now, it doesn't work anymore. No coding has been changed and the half-assed website developer has not had access to the website files in a very long time (his privileges were revoked once we knew he wasn't going to work out).

Can't say for sure.

Did you updated your server, or your host updated. It could be the codes are deprecated after the updates.
If no updates were done, then it's a mystery unless error / codes can be shown.

As far as I know, the only changes that were made through our Host site was when we were going through some delayed email issues through PureHost and our Name Servers (ns1 and ns2) were changed. Would this have the affect you speak of?

I don't think so.

If you can give us the code, we can help you debug it. If it's as terrible as you say it is, it might need major revamping.
