    this is the error I get when submitting a form

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/content/64/10360664/html/html_form_send.php on line 1

    Here is the code being used. (I know some coding but am still learning a lot. If you can 'dumb down' any responses.... that would be appreciated greatly)
    <?phpif(isset($_POST['email'])) } 
     
          // CHANGE THE TWO LINES BELOW
     
              $email_to = "applicant@redrivercarclub.com";   
     
                  $email_subject = "Application for Membership"; 
     
                              function died($error) {
     
                                    // your error code can go here       
     
                                    echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";

                                    echo $error."<br /><br />";

    Copied and pasted the code above and when I submit, I get this:


    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/content/64/10360664/html/html_form_send.php on line 130

    Yes. you commented out the close php line. Try this instead:

                  $email_subject = "Application for Membership";
     
                              function died($error) {
     
                                    // your error code can go here
     
                                    echo "We are very sorry, but there were error(s) found with the form you submitted. ";
     
                                    echo "These errors appear below.<br /><br />";
     
                                    echo $error."<br /><br />";

                                              die();    }

    Ok. This is almost frustrating :)


    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/content/64/10360664/html/html_form_send.php on line 135

    Great! Thanks for your help however, now when submit is pressed from the form, a blank page is shown and nothing gets submitted. This I need to correct and then another question:

    Is there a way to do a redirect after the message has been seen upon confirmation of form submit?
