ok. im getting annoyed. im creating a custom block here to show some now playing info on my site. whats different from others is that im storing this info in the database rather than grabbng it from the shoutcast server itself. ive got the code to keep the info in the database up to date. that was simple. but im having trouble with the block. heres my current code:

Code:
<?php

$PHP_SELF = $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['PHP_SELF'];
if (eregi("block-Now_Playing.php",$PHP_SELF)) {
    Header("Location: index.php");
    die();

global $db;
$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT * FROM ksim_nowplaying"));
$string1 = $row['nowplaying'];

if (preg_match("/Offline/i", $string1)) {
$np_img = "offline";
} elseif (preg_match("/This Week in Tech/i", $string1)) {
$np_img = "twit";
} elseif (preg_match("/The No Budget Show/i", $string1)) {
$np_img = "tnbs";
} elseif (preg_match("/The Country Kitchen/i", $string1)) {
$np_img = "tkc";
} else {
$np_img = "autodj"; }
//End Code

$content = "<img src=\"images/np/" . $np_img . ".png\">";
$content = $string1;
?>


but it keeps telling me there is an "unexpected $" on the last line where '?>' is located. any ideas?

Befor we go on, these 2 lines don't make sense. The last one overlays the first.
Code:
$content = "<img src=\"images/np/" . $np_img . ".png\">";

$content = $string1;

nvm. figured it out. was missing a closing bracket after the intial few essential block lines. and the second $content line was there just for debugging purposes. its no longer there now.

just a quick question before im done with this thread: does the mysql code look ok and "correct"? just curious because it was a quick edit from another block and im also planning on using it in other areas on my site like in a few modules and whatnot.

Your code looks fine although technically speaking you should try to use stristr instead of preg_match for speed and efficiency Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! . However, your result set is probably so small that it's not an issue Wink
