[thelist] PHP - Invalid Query

It's tripping up because there's an apostrophe in $message, which MySQL is
interpreting as a single quote (i.e. it thinks the single quote in "I've" is
the end of the data for the field).

You'll need to use addslashes() or similar to escape any single quotes in
$message before you insert it into the database. Try:

$sql = "INSERT INTO newsarchive (newssubject, newsarchivetext) VALUES
('$subject', '" . addslashes($message) . "')";
mysql_query($sql, $link) or die ("Invalid query");
