Hello,

I'm new to php, below I am trying to echo specific html based on the session variable set by the previous page.  Doesn't work, entire page is blank now.  Any help is appreciated.

Note: I removed m;uch of the white space in code below, after pasting into, formatting was lost.
<?php
 if ($_SESSION['country'] = 'usa_en'{
  echo
    // US 
    <span class=\"oneField\">
    <label for=\"carrier\" class=\"preField\">Please Select Your Carrier:</label><br />
<select id=\"carrier\" name=\"carrier\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"ChangeDropdowns(this.value); getPhones(this)\">
<option value=\"\">Select a Carrier</option>
<option value=\"att\">ATT</option>
<option value=\"tmobile\">T-Mobile</option>
<option value=\"other\">Other</option>
</select><br />
<div id=\"phones\" style=\"display:none;\">
<label for=\"myphone\" class=\"preField\">Select Your Phone:</label><br />
<select id=\"myphone\" name=\"myphone\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"showPlans(this.name)\">
</select>
</div>
</span><br />
           
<div id=\"plans\" class=\"right_pg2\" style=\"display:none;\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_us\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> 
<br />
// End US 
}
else {
echo
// Other countries div 
<div class=\"right_pg2\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_nl\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> 
// end other countries div 
} 
?>

Try this minor adjustment:

  if ($_SESSION['country'] == 'usa_en'

The single equals sign ('=') sets the value of a variable. If you want to find out if something "does equal" something else, you can use the double equals sign ('==').

Also note that I added the appropriate quotes around your echo statements:
<?php
 if ($_SESSION['country'] = 'usa_en'{
  echo
    // US 
    "<span class=\"oneField\">
    <label for=\"carrier\" class=\"preField\">Please Select Your Carrier:</label><br />
<select id=\"carrier\" name=\"carrier\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"ChangeDropdowns(this.value); getPhones(this)\">
<option value=\"\">Select a Carrier</option>
<option value=\"att\">ATT</option>
<option value=\"tmobile\">T-Mobile</option>
<option value=\"other\">Other</option>
</select><br />
<div id=\"phones\" style=\"display:none;\">
<label for=\"myphone\" class=\"preField\">Select Your Phone:</label><br />
<select id=\"myphone\" name=\"myphone\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"showPlans(this.name)\">
</select>
</div>
</span><br />
           
<div id=\"plans\" class=\"right_pg2\" style=\"display:none;\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_us\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> 
<br />";
// End US
}
else {
echo
"// Other countries div 
<div class=\"right_pg2\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_nl\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> ";
// end other countries div "
} 
?>

Here it is again, with the double-equals corrected:
<?php
 if ($_SESSION['country'] == 'usa_en'{
  echo
    // US 
    "<span class=\"oneField\">
    <label for=\"carrier\" class=\"preField\">Please Select Your Carrier:</label><br />
<select id=\"carrier\" name=\"carrier\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"ChangeDropdowns(this.value); getPhones(this)\">
<option value=\"\">Select a Carrier</option>
<option value=\"att\">ATT</option>
<option value=\"tmobile\">T-Mobile</option>
<option value=\"other\">Other</option>
</select><br />
<div id=\"phones\" style=\"display:none;\">
<label for=\"myphone\" class=\"preField\">Select Your Phone:</label><br />
<select id=\"myphone\" name=\"myphone\" class=\"formfield\" onchange=\"showPlans(this.name)\">
</select>
</div>
</span><br />
           
<div id=\"plans\" class=\"right_pg2\" style=\"display:none;\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_us\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> 
<br />";
// End US
}
else {
echo
"// Other countries div 
<div class=\"right_pg2\">
<p class=\"notice\">
<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"1995_mob_nl\" />Unlimited $19.95/month<br />
</p>
</div> ";
// end other countries div
} 
?>
