One thing you can try (that I find myself using quite a bit) is to add
the following snippet just after the FMFind() query:
<pre><?php echo 'FM URL' . $returnedData['URL'] . "\n"; ?></pre>
This snippet prints the actual URL used by FXphp to talk to the FM
server. You can then cut and paste this in to a browser to see if FM
will take it or if it has been truncated.
