    Noob question - syntax error Link to this post

    Hi Folks,

    I am completely new to this and was working my way though the tutorials to get a good grasp of how things fit together.

    Completed Tutorial 1 and everything was working just fine. Then started on Tutorial 2 and the following error started occurring once I added the extensions to the Page class.

    "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_FUNCTION in /var/www/html/mysite/code/ArticlePage.php on line 7"

    I tried to search the forum for a solution but the closest matches say to upgrade to PHP 5, unfortunately I am already running PHP 5.3.8.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Hey welcome to the forum

    Sounds as though you have a minor syntax error in your code (on line 7). If you code post the contents of your ArticlePage.php file to a service such as pastie.org then post the link here we will be able to help you out.

    Hi Howard,

    Thanks for the welcome

    Not sure what it was, I deleted all of the classes that I had added and re-did from scratch ( for the second time ) and now it works. Guess I need to find a tool that does validation and not just syntax highlighting.

    Cheers
