Wrap a DIV around PHP code?

  • # December 10, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    First of I wanna say that I’m not good in describing things especially in english so bare with me :oops:

    So, I’m really lost here, I have this major problem and I’m really confused.. I’m making a guestbook in PHP and it works just fine, but what I REALLY would love to do is to have the post’s wrapped inside of a css div.. And that’s a big problem, because I can’t write like this:

    Code:
    < ?php

    echo “Hey people”;

    ?>

    If I just wrap a DIV outside of ALL the php code, then it will only come in one div.. I want it like when users submit there message in the form, there message will be stored with the rest of the comments, but in there own div’s..

    I dont know how to explain this, but it’s only some of the php code, the actual outcome I want to wrap in a DIV.. And theres no way I can you css directly inside of php??

    Hope somebody understand’s me, and can help me out here..

    Thank’s so far

    Wait!

    I need the answer to this question too!

    @BrianZet – How did you figure this one out?

    Thur, I’m not sure if your problem is exactly the same as the original topic… but you can echo divs just like any other element you might echo out:

    echo "<div>";

    and

    echo "</div>";

    echo "<div>" . $elevData[1] . "</div>";

    surely wouldnt that put the data in a div?

    You don’t need to echo every line individually…

    Code:
    < ?php

    echo '

    Hey people

    ‘;

    ?>

    or

    Code:
    < ?php ?>

    Hey people

    < ? ?>
