I could use some help with an if statement.

The code below does not work. How do I fix?
while ($row31 = $query31->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
{

if ($row31['manufacturer_name'] === VuQube|Timex|Lowrance|Seaview) {
echo "brand restriction";
}

Open in new window



This code works fine.  

while ($row31 = $query31->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
{

if ($row31['manufacturer_name'] === Lowrance) {
echo "brand restriction";
}

That code is wrong - too many tipples!

if (strpos('VuQube|Timex|Lowrance|Seaview',$row31['manufacturer_name'])!==false) {
    echo "brand restriction";
}
