Parse Error

1 New Member
I have a pretty limited knowledge of PHP.

My scenario is:

I want one form to have two (2) submit buttons. I want one button to submit an email to a specific address then redirect to a page, and I want the second one to submit to the same email, then redirect to a different page. I've downloaded some code, so I can't take credit for it, but I'm trying to use my basic knowledge to create and IF and ELSE IF. Right now, I'm just trying to get the code to work at all, so I have the form simply submitting the form data to an email address based on the button that was clicked.

I get the following parse error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in /home/salamone/public_html/sendeail.php on line 65

If I am missing something? Thanks in advance!

Main reason:
You have not closed your if statement with curly brackets. Should be like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if (x=1) {
  2. //do something
  3. }
  4. elseif (x=2) {
  5. //do something else
  6. }
  7. else {
  8. //do yet another thing
  9. }
Hope that helps. Welcome to Bytes.

Hey. Welcome to Bytes!

I see 2 errors there.

On lines #62 and #85 you are missing the semi-colon (;) to end the line.

And, before the "else if " on line #65, you are missing the } to close the if preceding it.

An if structure should look like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if {
  2.   // statementes
  3. }
  4. else if {
  5.   // statements
  6. }
Yours is like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if {
  2.   // statementes
  3. else if {
  4.   // statements
  5. }

Actually, both work in the typical curly-braces structure.
(See elseif/else if - PHP manual)

Point taken. Thanks. And well done with the ";" pick-up ;)
