I have a form that was working fully, however I am now trying to make it submit the data to the same page as the form for error handleing and am now getting an error on line 145. The origional code on line 145 was this...

<form action="contactformhandler.php" method="post">

which I changed to...

$form ="<form action=\"$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']\" method=\"post\">";

and am now getting the error...

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING on line 145

Can anyone tell me what this means, and how to fix the error? Thanks!!

You can change this:<form action="contactformhandler.php" method="post">to this:<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post">Or else like they said, the error is happening on a different line so we would need at least 10 or so lines before the one that is indicated.

I should have caught that. If you use an array variable inside a string (or, if you want to be nice and consistent, any variable), then surround it with curly brackets:$form ="<form action=\"{$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']}\" method=\"post\">";
