Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Why don't you show the code near those lines? You look like having forgotten a ";" at the end of line 60

Thanks for the response. Unfortunely I am not a PHP programmer. I have ascritp with this error.

Here is the total file, if you would review it I would appreciate it much.

<script language=javascript>
function validateForm(frm)
{
	var pass=frm.pass.value;
	var repass=frm.repass.value;
	
	if(pass!=repass)
	{
		alert("Password confirmation failed");
		return false;
	}
	
	frm.submit();
}
</script>

<?=$delay?>

look at this place and similar ones
what i can say (maybe I am not experienced in such things), but if you say this is php, then I think it is quite a bad code here. I think it should be

<?php echo $delay; ?>

So there are 3 things to fix:
1. always use <?php instead of <?
2. if you want $delay to be printed, write echo $delay
3. add a semicolon ";" at the end of each sentence
Hope that helps you with problem, cause when I opened this file in my server, I saw many strange things, because my server does not understand <? ?> as being php. Fix like this and I am sure you will make a step forward. If I failed at understanding the problem, then I am sorry. I still hope I helped a bit.

That is an acceptable way to echo a variable within HTML code,

The problem is this line (Line 61):

<td><input type=text name=site value="<?=get_setting("site") size="20"?>" size=30></td></tr>

size="20" is within the PHP braces.

@ez123 : Apart from above, there is one more mistake on the same line-

name=site

should be like -

name="site"

OK, thanks, I will know that from now :)

ohh...i remember it now..there were so many such errors..your code should have been this way -

<tr><td>Default sender:</td>
<td><input type="text" name="sender" value="<?=$sender?>" size="30"></td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2" align="center"><br>
<input type="submit" name="general" value="Save General Settings">
</td></tr>
</table>

check that once again

Hi guys,
Many thanks to all that have tired to help me with code problem.
Unfortunely, I have really no knowledge of PHP code, and am getting nowhere with this error.
I was hoping for a solution here, but, I am fiddling with the script and wasting your time and mine.

If someone is willing to review the entire file involved with the error, that would be great, if not, I will not wste any more time in trying to correct the problem.

Jim
