if statement in php

I need to place an if, then statement in my index.php page so that if the page is /apply-online/ then it invokes some javascript on that index.php

This is a wordpress site and index.php in the root is where I had the script but I need to move it off of that home page and onto an internal page which is /apply-online/

Any ideas?

By apply-online you mean a web browser address in upper bar ?

With that you can get a page address in php
http://www.webcheatsheet.com/PHP/get_current_page_url.php
and so - if the apply-online - depending on the position of it is inside that string, you can invoke a js.

I tried the following and the jquery popup loads on the home page if I set $uri to '/' but not if I set the path to /apply-online/

Any idea why?
<?php
$uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if ($uri == "/apply-online/") {
      echo "<link rel='stylesheet' href='js/shadowbox/shadowbox.css' type='text/css' media='screen' />
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='js/nav.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='js/nav.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='js/shadowbox/shadowbox.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript'>
		Shadowbox.init({
        displayNav: true,
        onClose:function(){
                top.location.href='http://domain.com/?s=';
        }
        

});

$(function() {
        if (document.URL == 'http://domain.com/') {
                setTimeout(function() {
                        //Shadowbox.init();
                        Shadowbox.open({
                                player:         'iframe',
                                content:        'test1.cfm',

                                height:         '750',

                        });
                }, 2000);

});
function getCookieValue1() {

        var c_name = 'nowUrlIs';
        if (document.cookie.length > 0) {
                var c_start = document.cookie.indexOf(c_name + '=');
                if (c_start != -1) {
                        c_start = c_start + c_name.length + 1;
                        var c_end = document.cookie.indexOf(';', c_start);
                        if (c_end == -1)
                                c_end = document.cookie.length;
                        openUrl = document.cookie.substring(c_start, c_end);

Something like below perhaps is what you are looking for?


<?PHP
if (strpos($_SERVER{'REQUEST_URI'},'/apply-online/') > -1) {
   print <<< endofjavascript
    <SCRIPT language=javascript>
      var dump;
      location.href='http://google.ca';
   </SCRIPT>
endofjavascript
} else {
print <<< endofhtml
  <HTML>
  <BODY>
hiya
  </BODY>
  </HTML
endofhtml
}
?>

I need to remove those double quotes around all of my code because I think it sees it all as a string.  I tried removing the double quotes but it didn't work

$uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
would not be /apply-online/
You would have to search for a presence of that string in a full uri.

Maybe using substr_ count like
if (substr_count($uri,"/apply-online/") > 0)
rather than
if ($uri == "/apply-online/")

tried that but it didn't work.

So I have which works from the home page and the internal page path /apply-online/ displays at the bottom just fine.  Just can't get that darn popup to show up on that page.
<?php
$uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if ($uri == "/") {
      echo "<link rel='stylesheet' href='/js/shadowbox/shadowbox.css' type='text/css' media='screen' />
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='/js/nav.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='/js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript' src='/js/shadowbox/shadowbox.js'></script>
	  <script type='text/javascript'>
		Shadowbox.init({
        displayNav: true,
        onClose:function(){
                top.location.href='http://domain.com/?s=';
        }
        

});

$(function() {
        if (document.URL == 'http://domain.com/') {
                setTimeout(function() {
                        //Shadowbox.init();
                        Shadowbox.open({
                                player:         'iframe',

I think WordPress may be getting in your way of understanding the PHP-related issues here.  How much experience do you have in PHP (outside of WP)?
