php inside html inside php display issue

php inside html inside php display issue

php inside html inside php display issue

(OP)
Hello

I am configuring a pre-made script from php-login-script.com, and so far, so good, except...

A php script opens and closes <?php ... ?>, then inserts plain html without using "echo" or "print".

Then it calls php values within an html form like this:

<textarea name="address" cols="40" rows="4" class="required" id="address"><? echo $row_settings['address']; ?></textarea>

In a browser, the form field displays <? echo $row_settings['address']; ?>, rather than the intended value.

Is there something in php.ini that can be set to display this value as intended? Or am I missing something else?

Thanks
Mike

Thanks Chris, but I managed to answer my own question

In php 5.3 and earlier, the short_open_tag has to be On.

In php 5.4 short codes are recognized by default.

RE: php inside html inside php display issue

Relying on "short_tags" prevents your code from being 'portable', it's best not to use them.

RE: php inside html inside php display issue

As advised by ChrisHirst, stay clear from short tags - I believe it is deprecated.

The primary cause of this is XML already uses <? thus conflicting with PHP attempt to use the same.
