Here is the code I am using:
$email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
$message = $_REQUEST['blahblah'] ;

mail( "myemail@yahoo.com", "Feedback Form Results",
$message, "From: $email" );
header( "Location: http://www.example.com/thankyou.html" );
?>

Name: Email:


Here is the parse error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '

As mentioned in the documentation, you shouldn't enclose your code in PHP tags ...

Sorry, but my crystal ball seems to be out of service right now ...

In other words: What error do you get now?

That's impossible if you really removed the PHP tags, since there wouldn't be any '&lt;' sign left to complain about ...

I am having exactly the same problems with my static pages. I have not been about to include PHP and I followed all the documentation. Please help!

Forgot to add that I am simply trying to use the php
include_once(''); command.

Is there any thing I should put with the include command in order to get it to work? I really need to get the php to work in the static pages.

Example code is always easier to help with, then guessing.

I think I already explained that I simply wanted to do a php include. Only in this instance I wanted to include another staticpage into a staticpage.

I used include_once('http://www.xxx.com/staticpages/index.php/table'); It doesn't appear within in the staticpage. I also tried to include it as plain html.
ie.

Are you sure this is really what you want to do? Besides, that will only work if url_fopen is enabled.
