    I'm currently working on a project for university and I need a webpage where users can submit their email address to a database. The way ive got it going so far is that i am trying to store the address in a database within a table called 'mail' with the 'email' field being included in it, this i have already set up.

    However, i keep getting the error message "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /spare/apache/htdocs/stud/c0359743/cit1340/signup/create_entry.php on line 7"

    I have looked at this line for so long now and I have no idea what the problem is (im very new to PHP)

    Ive included the files here, ive masked the username and password etc in the dbconnect file for obvious reasons.

    Anyone have any ideas?? Also is there some existing PHP script that i could use to perform this function that anyone knows of? I need to allow users to 'unsubscribe' also. I am allowed to use other peoples script as long as they are credited in the report.

    Many Thanks.

    try changing create_entry.php like this

    PHP Code:

    if (
    $_REQUEST["submit"] == "Sign!")
    $email $_REQUEST["emailaddress"];
    $query "insert into mail (email) values ('$email')"    ;
    mysql_query($query) or die("query failed: $query ".mysql_error());

    a so called T-Variable..... is caused by some syntactic failure in your script.

    In your case, the immediate culprit, is the lack of a concatination symbol where your double quote ends.
    PHP Code:
    $query "insert into mail (email) values ('".$_REQUES 
    The symbol is a "." where string info ends and code starts.
