Hi

I am using this script I found that pulls the google calendar and then renders it with my css.  But sometimes if the google calendar is unavaliable it just list the fopen or fread failed. I think it is around line 56 or 57.  Is there a way to display some thing else like calendar is having trouble please try back in a few minutes.  

So it would be something like

If fopen fails then print <html> otherwise continue.

Here is a link to the script I have been using.

You can use try catch
 try{
   $fd = fopen ($url, "r");
     }
  catch(Exception e)
   {
   $fd =false;
   }
if($fd)
 {
  read content from file..
 }

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '{' in /home/content/t/m/r/tmregister/html/rlchome/googlecal/MyGoogleCalAgenda2.php on line 56


Here is the way I used your code.

Change reference e to $e.
Fixitben, where is on line 56?
try{
   $fd = fopen ($url, "r");
     }
  catch(Exception $e)
   {
   $fd =false;
   }
if($fd)
 {
..
 }

Well That didn't change any thing or give me anymore info

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '{' in /home/content/t/m/r/tmregister/html/rlchome/googlecal/MyGoogleCalAgenda2.php on line 57

Is there somewhere special that I need to put that.
