it's telling me that $day and $number are both unitialized, any clue why?

They are not being sent from your html page probably. You can assign defaults like this;

my $name = $q->param('name') || 'noname'; my $day = $q->param('day') || 'noday'; my $number = $q->param('number') || 'nonumber';

The elements after the print line should be comma separated and you shouldn't be printing after the end_html

print $q->header, $q->start_html( -title => "Add user", -bgcolor => "#ffffff"), $q->p("Data submitted"), $q->tt("$name<br/>$day<br/>$number"), $q->end_html;

And you may wish to add this while developing to see any errors in the browser.
