Hello,

While putting together a sticky form I got this error:

Parse error: parse error in C:\wamp\www\base_ball\insert_player.php on line 175

The problem is that this line of code does not exist. The script ends at line 174. Here are the bits of code I have altered:

<?php
if (isset($_POST['Insert'])){
$ln = $_POST['ln'];
$fn = $_POST['fn'];
$mi = $_POST['mi'];

...

$team = $_POST['team'];
$output_form = false;

if (empty($ln) || empty($fn) || empty($pcell)){
echo 'You forgot either the last name, first name, or player\'s cell. <br \>';
$output_form = true;
}
else
{
$query = "INSERT INTO player...

...

if ($output_form){
?>
    <form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>">
<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> 

...

<input type="Submit" value="Insert" name="Insert">
</form>
<?php
}
?>


<?php require("includes/footer.php"); ?>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1; url=add_thankyou.php">
Line 174 above ^^^

I'm not sure what to do when the parser picks up code that doesn't exist unless it is expecting something on the next line (175)?

There might be something in includes/footer.php that's doing it. As a side note a meta refresh tag goes in the head section, not the body.

Post the entirety of the code so I can at least run it through phplint to see if there are syntax errors :)

Okay, but the code needs to be refactored!

I did not realize I was using a header. The goal of that line is to simply redirect the user to a page that echos "Record deleted". Is there an alternative I can use?

<?php require_once("includes/connection.php"); ?>
<?php include("includes/header.php"); ?>

You never end the first if so its waiting for the ending brace. And what I meant was that <meta> tags go in <head> in the document
