I need some help with this php code please

Posted on 2010-08-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi ,
With this page here:

You will see something that says Search our Events with a link saying Search going to this page.

I want the Search our Events to be the  hyperlink instead of the Search so I have tried to change this code:

$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\"> Search our Events {$searchLink} </td>";

to this

$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\"> <a href="index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=64>Search our Events </a></td>";

But that broke the code?

Can someone help me please?

Try the same syntax the original code uses:

$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\">(<a href="index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=64>)Search our Events </a></td>";

Sorry, should be:
$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\">{<a href="index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=64>}Search our Events </a></td>";

You have got an error in the code missing " at the end of the href statement

$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\"> <a href="index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=64" >Search our Events </a></td>";

Your code is also missing espace characters \
so it should look like this:

$this->sobi2Header = $this->sobi2Header . "\n\t\t<td id=\"sobi2HeaderSearchLink\"> <a href=\"index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=search&Itemid=64\" >Search our Events </a></td>";
