Error Message on Index Page


Recommended Posts

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING (edited personal info)/index.php on line 18


I understand there is an error in the index.php file but, I can't find it on line 18.


I removed all the HTML codes I had added


I have been working on the Index Page in this section of the file:


define('TEXT_MAIN', there is another ' single right after the comma, then what I had to say on the Index page..... now at the end of what I have said, do I add ') or just the ' or no?


It has been a while and I just need a little push in the right direction.... it was going so well too :'(


Thank you for any help, I love the program so far!

It should be:


define('TEXT_MAIN', 'You text here between the single quotes, semi-colon at the end');


Also, escape any apostrophes within the text with a backslash:


Don\'t, won\'t, can\'t etc.

Thanks Peter, it seems there is more then one, I have run through lines 18, 13, 22, and now 21.


I made the corrections you suggested then found the "&" I had used as a short form and replace them with the word instead..... can't find anything else, even read it outloud.


And I did add the ');


Back on as well...... now on line 21 and nothing I can see :'(


Thanks for the help though, I did learn something new lol the "\" with the apostrophies



Char :o)
