What is the correct way to write this statement:
if ($_SESSION['Last_Page'] == "Space_Display.php"
 or $_SESSION['Last_Page'] == "Space_Edit.php")

I've seen several examples with different syntax.

You can also use '||' in place of 'OR' (or 'or').   http://us1.php.net/manual/en/language.operators.logical.php

To paraphrase:

I want to do something if $_SESSION['Last_Page'] contains either "Space_Display.php" or "Space_Edit.php" but if $_SESSION['Last_Page'] contains neither of those strings, I want to do something else.

Is that correct?

Thanks that works.  I just wanted to make sure the syntax was what people are using.  Use the || instead of OR.
