I *THINK* this might be causing a problem?

<?php echo $bottomMods_count?>

should be:

<?php echo $bottomMods_count; ?>

with the ; in it...also on those else if's I would change the them from:



some servers choke if you leave off the php directive...let us know if that works.

Yes i agree with the above point and please don't use OPENING <? for PHP since they are the old way of representing php and outdated....pls use <?php ?>

Hi all,

since they are the old way of representing php and outdated

Not strictly true, this is something set in the php.ini file, and lots of servers out there are still using PHP4 and early PHP5, so although it is a good thing for script portability (should you decide to migrate servers) there are still many servers out there that may have the "short asp style" stags enabled in the php.ini file.

But definitely from a 'good coding practise' point of view, it is best to use the full tag, you will avoid headaches in the future ;)

Also when developing a script, turn on the full error reporting to see more detail of errors as they come up, generally put the directive under the opening php tag on the file/system you are working on:-

error_reporting(E_ALL|E_STRICT);// the |STRICT is optional, but this is what I always use

And yes, I think we all agree on the missing ; causing the parsing error!
