you should check your php syntax, as you had dots and stuff flying right and left.

anyway here you got your code working

Being new to coding in general, and starting to study again after several months off, this one stumped me for sure. Thank you krillz!

 

I did not realize that you could add a variable to a string like you did. e.g., (name='email$i'). Now I need to add a bit more to this so that I can send emails and echo a list back. Thanks again, I'm sure I will need more assistance soon.

Actually if you want the variable to be parsed you need to use double quotes as otherwise the variable will not be parsed:

 

$beta = 'test';

echo 'This is a $beta';  // this will show: This is a $beta
echo "This is a $beta"; // this will show: This is a test

 

Also when you need to print out a lot of html it can be good to either close the php write your html then open it up again. Although it's a minus in terms of optimization it's not noticeable in small scripts.

Another way could be using a variation of the echo statement:

 

$uno = 'one';
$dos = 'two';
$tres = 'three';

echo A lot of text goes here put a lot of text here over several lines
something that is a pain in the ass to have in quotes and stuff

I can even put in my variables here and they will be parsed
$uno $dos , $tres most likely misspelled but hey I do not speak
spaninsh anyway I think you got the picture by now so I'll stop.
END;

I understand double quotes needed to be parsed, but what confused me is that you don't need the double quotes in... name='email$i'. Now when capturing the value, I did need the double quotes. Somewhat confusing to me, but I'm slowly getting there.

I have read about this somewhere and I can see to where this could be used as you showed; I like it, but forget what it's called.
