Hi,

I have a class "page_button" which will make it so there is a background behind Page 1, Page 2, etc....

I'm not that falilliar with PHP and how to incorpoate this. Can you please doctor up my attached code to add the class "page_button" to it?

Thanks
<?
	for ($i = 1; $i <= $pages; $i++) {
		if ($i > 1)
			echo '&nbsp;|';
		if ($i == $page)
			echo '&nbsp;<strong>Page ' . $i . '</strong>';
		else
			echo '&nbsp;<span class='page_button'><a href="event.php?group=' . $group . '&event=' . $event .'&page=' . $i . '">Page ' . $i . '</a></span>';
	}
	?>

I think that you should have it on the active page, is it what you want ?
<?php
      for ($i = 1; $i <= $pages; $i++) {
            if ($i > 1)
                  echo '&nbsp;|';
            if ($i == $page)
                  echo '&nbsp;<span class='page_button' ><strong>Page ' . $i . '</strong></span>';
            else
                  echo '&nbsp;<a href="event.php?group=' . $group . '&event=' . $event .'&page=' . $i . '">Page ' . $i . '</a>';
      }
      ?>

Hi,

I got this error (PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' on line 83) which is this one: echo '&nbsp;<span class='page_button' ><strong>Page ' . $i . '</strong></span>';
for ($i = 1; $i <= $pages; $i++) {
		if ($i > 1)
			echo '&nbsp;|';
		if ($i == $page)
			echo '&nbsp;<span class='page_button' ><strong>Page ' . $i . '</strong></span>';
		else
			echo '&nbsp;<span class='page_button' ><a href="event.php?group=' . $group . '&event=' . $event .'&page=' . $i . '">Page ' . $i . '</a></span>';
	}
