Simple Integration Method PHP trouble

Posted by multimediakt (multimediakt), 8 December 2006
hi everyone.

i was pulled into a programming project (i'm a designer by trait with some programming experience) and need to use either PHP or Perl.  It is to be used with to accept donations via credit card on a charitable  website.  I have it working (somewhat) with the site.  I am receiving confirmations through test mode.  

One of the problems i'm having is figuring out how to make form fields required.  i have it look for the credit card number and the amount of the donation to be required (through a code i found), but the name, address, city, state, etc, don't have to be entered.  

Also, i'm in talks with the organization right now because i can't get it to be https:// either.  it says the certificate is expired.

I apologize for my ignorance.  I'm trying my best to figure all of this out in a few days so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have it posted at

If needed I can post my code in here.
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
