you can use a class, or an inline style
<h1 style="color: green;">

Open in new window

Here is what I've tried but it doesn't work :

      echo "<h1 style="color: green;">Successfully added!</h1><br><br>";

It's a phpfox script so sometimes it is very particular about the syntax. Could you suggest another method of doing this?

Thanks for your help,

D

that's because of the quotes. you have to escape or alternate with single quotes.
echo "<h1 style='color: green;'>Successfully added!</h1><br><br>";

As far as I can recall there is no such error message from PHP!  

No points for this, please -- robert_schutt has given you the correct answer.  But going forward, please follow the guidance of the SSCCE when you post questions.  It will make for quicker, more accurate answers.  In PHP, that means raising the error reporting level and the display errors level, and then showing us the exact error message and the exact line number of the error message.  In the instant case you probably got a "Parse error" and knowing that information leads us to better answers more quickly.
