$sql="INSERT INTO discussions (name, desc, maker)VALUES('".$_POST[name]."', '".$_POST[desc]."', '$id')"; This is the right way to write you can also write in this manner $sql="INSERT INTO discussions (name, desc, maker)VALUES('".$_POST['name']."', '".$_POST['desc']."', '$id')"; ('".$_POST['name']."' this particular key word can accepts the values perfectly.

The error is due to a reserved word being used desc, it is reserved for describing which order you require as in descending or ascending. if you can't change field name try using backticks `desc`. OOPS! i see this has already been pointed out, guys the problem has been found, give it up.
