moving box over jp12 msg:4622272 10:08 pm on Nov 9, 2013 (gmt 0) I have the following code, it's a mix of php and html. I'm trying to move the input boxes over to align them and when I try inline CSS, I receive parse errors. I tried adding a span style in between each <label> tag to move the text box over but it doesn't work. How do I do CSS within PHP? <div id="content_clientlogin"> <?php echo resultBlock($errors,$successes); echo " <div id='regbox'> <form name='newUser' action='".$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."' method='post'> <p> <label>User Name:</label> <input type='text' name='username' placeholder='minimum 5 characters' /> </p> <p> <label>Display Name:</label> <input type='text' name='displayname' /> </p> <p> <label>Password:</label> <input type='password' name='password' placeholder='minimum 8 characters' /> </p> <p> <label>Confirm:</label> <input type='password' name='passwordc' /> </p> <p> <label>Email:</label> <input type='text' name='email' /> </p> <p> <label>Security Code:</label> <img src='models/captcha.php'> </p> <label>Enter Security Code:</label> <input name='captcha' type='text'> </p> <label> <br> <input type='submit' value='Register'/> </p> </form> </div>"; ?> </div> </div> <?php include('../footer.html')?> </body> </html>

You should be fine with adding inline styles, but it's better/easier to get right if reverse your single/double quotes in the PHP/HTML, because it's not only faster since PHP does not parse single quoted strings for variables, it also can have less unexpected behavior when you put something like $1 in the middle of a double "" string. A simple example of the preceding is: <?php $my_var='testing'; echo '$my_var single quoted strings'; echo '<br>'; echo "$my_var double quoted strings"; ?> Will output: $my_var single quoted strings testing double quoted strings My guess is you double quoted the style="" and that caused the parse error.

yes I did double quote it, thank you! JD_Toims msg:4623091 11:21 pm on Nov 13, 2013 (gmt 0)
Cool, glad you got it sorted out!
