Hi Experts,

I have just come back to PHP programming after a stint of doing vb.net. I am wondering if there is a way to continue a variable outside of an IF statement.

Would this require Register Globals switched on?

No,

You can just use the variable outside the if statement. Scopes are defined by the global scope, classes and functions. If's and loop's do not define a scope of themselves in PHP.
