Ok... I've been working on a personal project for a news update page for my website.  Something simple that accepts the users name and a bunch of text and then writes it to the file in the following order.

Name
Date
Time
Text .... blah blah blah

well... my problem exists when writing to the file.  In the following section of code I write the variables both to the screen and to the file.  There have been two problems.  When the file mode is opened with "w" the code fails to write the "$fulln" and "$stuffs" to the file, but succeeds in displaying it on the page.  Second.  When changing the mode to "a", it succeeds in both writing to the file and the page, but also adds an extra blank line and the date and time variables to the end of the file after the text.
I'm not sure what the problem could be here.  Any help and I would be thankfull.  Below the following snippet of code is the entire code.


-----------------------------------
$updatedate = date( "Ymd" );
$updatetime = date( "His" );
$newsname = "./$phpnewsfolder/$updatedate$updatetime.txt";
$updatedate = date( "M dS, Y" );
$updatetime = date( "h:ia" );

$fullstringnews = "$fulln\n$updatedate\n$updatetime\n$stuffs\n";

echo "<P>01. Opening $newsname<P>".
	"02. String = $fullstringnews<P>";

$f4 = fopen("$newsname","w");
	fputs($f4, "$fullstringnews");
fclose($f4);
