Well, I managed to connect a textarea to a (new) database, but aside from that, I have no clue where to go from there. I am not sure if I am (supposed to be) using a fetch array, or a fetch object, or what the hell, in terms of deriving, or getting from that database, the CONTENTS of the textarea, and then displaying it in the "Messages" section on the /profile.php page.

So, very very very minor progress (I know how to connect a textarea to a database (and by "know how", I am being very generous with myself here - because I know nothing, haha)).

And you'd be surprised how little (useful) documentation there is online about inserting the entirety of a textarea's contents into a damn MySQL db. It's like "taboo" or something.

back soon
