Hi all,

I have the follow show/hide script that works correctly.

<html>
<head>
<title>my javascript show script</title>

<script type="text/javascript">
      function showStuff(id) {
      if (document.getElementById(id).style.display == 'block')
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'none';
            else
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'block'
      }
</script>

</head>
<body>

<p><a href="#" onclick="showStuff('answer1'); return false;">What price are your apples?</a><br>
<span id="answer1" style="display: none;">Our apples are 30 pence each. If you buy 10 or more we can sell them at a discounted bulk rate of 25 pence each.</span></p>

</body>
</html>

However when I want to add a PHP loop into the file it does not work. Perhaps I have the syntax wrong for this?

Top of PHP part:

$html = array('total_meditations_today' => '<p>Meditations Today: __  </p>',
              'total_journals_today' => '<p>Journal Entries Today: __ </p>',
			  'total_exercises_today' => '<p>Exercises Logged: Today: __  </p>',
			  'total_dyads_today' => '<p>Dyads Completed Today: __ </p>',
			  'total_ebooks_downloaded_today' => '<p>Ebooks Downloaded: __ </p>',
			  'total_ebooks_shelf_today' => '<p>Ebooks On Shelf: __ </p>'
			  );

$res = array('total_meditations_today' => $total_meditations_today,
             'total_journals_today' => $total_journals_today,
			 'total_exercises_today' => $total_exercises_today,
			 'total_dyads_today' => $total_dyads_today,
			 'total_ebooks_downloaded_today' => $total_ebooks_downloaded_today,
			 'total_ebooks_shelf_today' => $total_ebooks_shelf_today,
			 );
arsort($res, SORT_NUMERIC); //Sort an array in reverse order

?>


Body: 

<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
      function showStuff(id) {
      if (document.getElementById(id).style.display == 'block')
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'none';
            else
            document.getElementById(id).style.display = 'block'
      }
</script>
</head>

<body>
<p><a href="#" onclick="showStuff('answer1'); return false;">Today:</a><br>
<span id="answer1" style="display: none;"><?php foreach ($res as $k => $v) {
    echo str_replace('__', $v, $html[$k]) . PHP_EOL;
} ?>
</span></p>

</body>
</html>

Change your body like this

<body>
<p><a href="#" onclick="showStuff('answer1'); return false;">Today:</a><br></p>
<span id="answer1" style="display: none;">
<?php 
foreach ($res as $k => $v) {
    echo str_replace('__', $v, $html[$k]) . PHP_EOL;
} ?>
</span>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window


I have removed the </p> after </span> and placed it before <span>..

The problem is </p> tag breaks and creates <p> for all lines within foreach statement which in turn moves the content outside span
