    Whats wrong with this line?

    What an Earth is wrong with this code?

    Code:
    $query = "select sizes from products where id='$id'"; $result = mysql_query($query); $row = mysql_fetch_array($result); if ($row == 0) {echo "";} else {echo "Small - $row['sizes']";}
    PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING

    $row should have been $row['sizes']

    else {echo "Small - $row['sizes']";}

    Remove those single quote marks so it looks like this: $row[sizes]

    Also see the link in my signature about quotes to learn about using them properly. When using an array and its key inside double quotes you don't use the single quotes.
    I can't really think of anything to write here now...

    PHP Code:
    // Or
    else { echo "Small - {$row['sizes']}"; }
    // Or
    else { echo 'Small - ' $row['sizes']; } 
    It's best practice not to omit the quotes when referencing array keys.
