Hi,

I have this code:

<?php
$str = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (eregi('\route=checkout/cart', $str)) {
echo "***********";
}
else
{
echo"";
}
?>

end code.


When ever I try to insert this code where the stars are now I get an unexpected < error,


<script src="//s3.amazonaws.com/searchdiscovery-satellite-production/1234567897.js"></script>

Any ideas??

Thanks

If you are inserting into an existing  block of php code you don't need these tags <?php ?>

In other words something like this

<?php 
some code

<?php 
more code
?>

?>

This is how you would insert the code in the above scenario


<?php
some code


$str = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (eregi('\route=checkout/cart', $str)) {
echo "***********";
}
else
{
echo"";
}


?>

First of all, the use of eregi has been deprecated since PHP 5.3 and its continued use is highly discouraged. http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.eregi.php

I would consider the use of preg_match as a replacement to the use of eregi.

Secondly, your supplied code sample doesn't provide enough detail to effectively help you debug the issue.

After re-reading this is probably what you need:

http://php.about.com/od/learnphp/qt/php_with_html.htm

<?php
 //your php code here
 ?>

 <b>Here is some more HTML</b>

 <?php
 //more php code
 ?>

 
 </body>
 </html>

Hi,

Sorry I have made myself very unclear..

This is what I'm trying to do and the code as I have tried:

<?php
$str = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (eregi('\route=checkout/cart', $str)) {
echo "<script src="//s3.amazonaws.com/searchdiscovery-satellite-production/1234567897.js"></script>";
}
else
{
echo"";
}
?>

This code is supposed to show some code if a certain url is used,

Try this:

<?php
$str = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (eregi('\route=checkout/cart', $str)) {
?>
<script src="//s3.amazonaws.com/searchdiscovery-satellite-production/1234567897.js"></script>

<?php
}
else
{
echo"";
}
?>

Then what you actually want would be this;

<?php
$str = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if (eregi('\route=checkout/cart', $str)) {
echo "<script src=\"http://s3.amazonaws.com/searchdiscovery-satellite-production/1234567897.js\"></script>";
}
else
{
echo"";
}
?>

Open in new window


Please take note of the escaped double quotes in my code revision. \"

This is required, because without that, PHP will see your string end at the next unescaped double quote.

Avoid propagating any use of ereg() functions.

Please use view-source on these links.
see http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_tonypearce.php 
and http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_tonypearce.php?route=checkout/cart

<?php // RAY_temp_tonypearce.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

// CREATE A REGULAR EXPRESSION
$rgx 
= '#'                     // REGEX DELIMITER
. 'route=checkout/cart'   // LITERAL STRING
. '#'                     // REGEX DELIMITER
;

// IF AND ONLY IF THE EXPRESSION MATCHES THE URL
if (preg_match($rgx, $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'])) 
{
    echo "<script src=\"http://s3.amazonaws.com/searchdiscovery-satellite-production/1234567897.js\"></script>";
}

Well Mr. Paseur, if you can't figure that out a refresher may be necessary.

Allow me to refer you to:
