i'm not sure where i'm going wrong here

I'm getting this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting ';' or '{' in /home/cjehost/public_html/collectors_moment/libraries/joomla/html/html/behavior.php on line 63

thanks!

		if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54"){
			JHTML::script('caption2.js');
		}; else {
			JHTML::script('caption.js');
		};

try these
// this should work
 
function caption() 
{
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54"){
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                } else {
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
                };
}
 
 
// this also should work
 
function caption() 
{
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54")
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                else
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
                
}

Indeed, get rid of that cheeky ';'

Sorry, you don't need to have a ';' on closing brackets...
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54"){
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                }; else {
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
                };
 
Should be:
 
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54"){
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                } else {
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
                }

Or... sorry for the repost:

I noticed that you hadn't got the 'caption() {' in your code, you just had 'caption()'
function caption() {
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54"){
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                } else {
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
                }

Thanks Michael701 - this seemed like the most elegant solution:

function caption()
{
                if ($_GET['Itemid']=="54")
                        JHTML::script('caption2.js');
                else
                        JHTML::script('caption.js');
               
}

aside from using too many ';' s - what was i doing wrong?
