I have the following code in a working PHP page but this stops it loading:
----------------------
$im_art = $_GET['artist'];

<?php if ($im_art = "El Glinoer") {
<div class="body_text_large_artists" align="left"><?php echo $row_artInfo[artinf_Name]; ?></div><div class="body_text_large_cv"><a href="artistInfoCV.php?artist=<?php echo urlencode($im_art); ?>" target="_parent">Artist's CV</a><div class="div_archives_link"><a href="artistInfoArchives.php?artist=<?php echo urlencode($im_art); ?>" target="_parent">Archived&nbsp;Images</a> }
----------------------

Any ideas anyone ?

$im_art = "El Glinoer" with a single '=' is an assignment.  $im_art == "El Glinoer" with two '==' is a comparison which is what you usually want.  Other problems too.  This may work better.
<?php if ($im_art == "El Glinoer") { ?>
<div class="body_text_large_artists" align="left"><?php echo $row_artInfo[artinf_Name]; ?></div>
<div class="body_text_large_cv"><a href="artistInfoCV.php?artist=<?php echo urlencode($im_art); ?>" target="_parent">Artist's CV</a>
<div class="div_archives_link"><a href="artistInfoArchives.php?artist=<?php echo urlencode($im_art); ?>" target="_parent">Archived&nbsp;Images</a> 
<?php } ?>
