This is the error message I get and I know next to nothing about what this means:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /hsphere/local/home/oldsoppl/ on line 39

Here is the script:

Please help a newbie get this up and working.


I've no idea how you're going to use this code in your full script, but if you take out the ' in 'site's' it doesn't error any more.

If you want that character in your text strings you're going to have to escape it.

Use \' instead of just the '. That doesn't error, either.

Should have known that but didn't see the site's. Thanks.


Unexpected T_String usually means syntax error somewhere ;)

And usually nowhere near the line number it reports :rolleyes:
