Hmmm interesting idea. I initially thought what Lee
did about going straight to the DB. I suppose we can
use the forms...I am not entirely sure how - I suppose
the variables could be passed on the query string to
the normal form action.

As for if the PHPNuke guys change anything, arnt we
forking their code anyway? Particularly if sparkes
goes ina nd removes the <form> tags. ;)
