Hello,

I have little knowledge with PHP and I was assigned to try to fix some of the things that don't work in a website. The website basically deals with two different users, a trader who can post articles and a blogger who can post blogs. When a user registers to become a trader though, he is registered as a blogger. I checked the database and everyone who tried to register as a trader was saved as a user. I think the problem is in the register process method. I attached a copy of the codes. Since my knowledge is very limited, i'm not exactly sure what's wrong. Can you please take a look at it and let me know. I'm open to any thoughts and suggestions.
