I am having a white screen of death appear when a user post a form that I made. Interesting thing is when I as the admin of the site (this site is run using wordpress) post the same data in the form and submit it works, but when a user does it does the white screen, and help. Below is the form data and some other code I am using.

Here is the code that is for the form part (I know it is not great code I am still learning)

    function bio_form(){
global $wpdb, $current_user;

//get current user info

$yes = $_GET['submitted'];

//check log in
if(!is_user_logged_in()) {  
    //user isnt logged in
    echo "You must be logged in to use this form";
    //show login form
    if (!(current_user_can('level_0'))){
        echo "<h2>Login</h2>";
        echo "<form action=" . get_option('home') . "/wp-login.php method='post' enctype='multipart/form-data'>";
        echo "<input type='text' name='log' id='log' value='" . wp_specialchars(stripslashes($user_login), 1) . "' size='20' />";
        echo "<input type='password' name='pwd' id='pwd' size='20' />";
        echo "<input type='submit' name='submit' value='Send' class='button' />";
        echo "<p>";
        echo "<label for='rememberme'><input name='rememberme' id='rememberme' type='checkbox' checked='checked' value='forever' /> Remember me</label>";
        echo "<input type='hidden' name='redirect_to' value=" . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] . " />";
        echo "</p>";
        echo "</form>";
        echo "<a href='" . get_option('home') . "/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword'>Recover password</a>";
        //add register link
    } else { 
        echo "<h2>Logout</h2>";
        echo "<a href=" . wp_logout_url(urlencode($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'])) . ">logout</a><br />";
    $gg = false;
    if($yes == NULL){
        $id = $_GET['enID'];
        $em = $_GET['em'];
        $sub = $_GET['submit'];
        if($id == NULL || $em == NULL){     
            echo "<div align='center'><form action=''>";
            echo "<p>Plese use the email you used on the your entry, and the entryID that was generated for your entry.</p>";

        if($sub == true){
            echo "<div align='center'><h1>Not a vaild id</h1></div>";

If anyone can help here that would be great. I am wondering if it has to do with the post data, for instance, This is a sample of the url when the form is submitted.**+and+who+just+need+to+go+home+and+continue+playing+Halo+with+their+friends+at+parties.&Q11=Flying%2FControl+of+Elements+%28really+that+would+be+considered+air%29.+No.+Where+is+the+fun+in+that%3F&Q12=-Hey+girl%2C+what%E2%80%99s+up%3F+Guess+what%3F+It%E2%80%99s+your+lucky+day.+Out+of+all+the+girls+here%2C+I+picked+you+to+talk+to-&Q13=In+a+Sense%2C+yes.+He%27s+very+Attractive.+I+want+to+hug+him+and+feed+him+Cheese+Lol&Q14=Probably+all+day..My+teacher+is+a+huge+nerd%2C+and+all+we+talk+about+is+video+games.+Yes%2C+she%27s+65.+%0D%0A%0D%0AThen+I+come+home%2C+and+pop+in+whatever+game+we+were+talking+about+all+day%2C+or+Oblivion.+Then+spend+the+rest+on+here+on+Deviant+Art+talking+about+Marvel%2C+DC%2C+and+Dark+Horse+Comics%2C+along+with+others.+%0D%0A%0D%0AAlso+D%26D+with+Magic+the+Gathering+with+one+of+my+young+friends+who+is+obsessed+with+them+and+needs+me+to+guide+them+Lol.+So+its+actually+kind+of+forced+sometimes&Q15=Nuclear+Apocalypse%2C+Zombies+then+Follow!&submitted=yes 

It is really long, and there is many things in it, I am wondering if that is the issue, though as I said when I use the same above string it works fine for me when I am logged in as an admin.

P.S sorry that code didn't format well in the code block.

    White screen usually means crash because of error. I recommend try search error by adding to php code line:


    Error not be printed if error occurs bellow this line.

    Also do not forget check if no error return from database (mysql, mysqli, PDO.. using different functions to get error).

    White screen is usually server 500 error but the notices if any are not output to the browser.

    In your wp-config.php set debug to true:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true); 

    Then log out flush your cache, clear your cookies then try to submit the form as a regular users and you will get the error messages.
