email parser error

Recommended Posts

SOLVED- I had 2 problems wrong with it, I had double quotes, so I had to change those to single quotes inside hte mail function, and the second thing, is I didn't close the php controller before hte mail function, so it all works now, thanks for looking and thinking.It is coming up with

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_IF in /home/freelan4/public_html/cgi-bin/form-processors/ideasandsubmissionsprocessor.php on line 22
Below is the php processor code
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" /><title>ideasandsubmissionsprocessor.php</title></head><body><?php$firstname = $_POST['firstname'];$emailaddress = $_POST['emailaddress'];$verifyemail = $_POST['verifyemail'];$description = $_POST['description'];$to = "businessman332211@hotmail.com";$subject = "ideas and submissions";$message = "First Name: $firstnameEmail Address: $emailaddressVerify Email: $verifyemailDescription: $description"if (mail($to, $subject, $message)){print("Thank you for submitting your email has been successfully sent");print("Return to the homepage at <a href="http://www.freelancebusinessman.com">Freelance Businessman</a>");}else{print("I am sorry but there was some sort of error and the email could not be sent");print("I am not totally sure of the cause of this error.");print("Please return to <a href="http://www.freelancebusinessman.com">Freelance Businessman</a>");print("If you try again and recieve this error message a second time, then please email me at the original email address and notify me of this error, so it can be checked into.  Thank you for visiting Freelance Businessman.");}?></body></html>

Now below here is the page with the form

<form name="ideasandsubmissionsform" action="../cgi-bin/form-processors/ideasandsubmissionsprocessor.php" method="post"><fieldset class="formstyle"><legend>Ideas and Submissions</legend><br /><label for="firstname" accesskey="f">*First Name:</label><br /><input tabindex="1" name="firstname" id="firstname" type="text" maxlength="30" /><br /><label for="emailaddress" accesskey="e">*Email Address:</label><br /><input tabindex="2" name="emailaddress" id="emailaddress" type="text" maxlength="80" /><br /><label for="verifyemail" accesskey="v">*Verify Email:</label><br /><input tabindex="3" name="verifyemail" id="verifyemail" type="text" maxlegth="80" /><br /><label for="description" accesskey="m">*Description:</label><br /><textarea tabindex="4" name="description" id="description" rows="6" cols="30"></textarea><br /><input tabindex="5" name="submit" id="submit" type="submit" value="submit" /><input tabindex="6" name="reset" id="reset" type="reset" value="reset" /></fieldset></form>

Any ideas, when I first started on it, it gave me other errors, and I hunted down the problems in the script that I messed up on, but now everything looks to be in place, any ideas.
