PHP teething...why browsers won't parse basic code?

Post by jon80 » Mon May 02, 2016 3:51 pm

I read the tutorial at http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp, and, I am revising some basics using Expression Web - https://www.microsoft.com/expression/eng/. Originally I wanted to write a content management system on top of a LAMP/VAMP config.

However, the output does not appear to indicate that the following browsers have the same output as that shown where the tutorial was placed, so I am wondering what changed, since the last time I did a bit of PHP coding.

I use the following browsers on my laptop:
IE11
FF 45.0.2
Chrome 50
Opera 36
There are other popular browsers - http://internet-browser-review.toptenreviews.com/. I also have a version of Opera Mini on my Nokia C3, which is a bit ancient, I wish I could afford a newer model.

Maybe some recent book or tutorial and IDE that you would recommend?
I have other tools such as Eclipse IDE, which has a variant meant for PHP Development, downloaded from http://www.eclipse.org/.

PHP code not parsing on IE11 and other browsers...

Post by jon80 » Mon May 02, 2016 4:02 pm

I am reading a tutorial and using Expression web to revise my PHP, however, it seems that browsers are not parsing the code as they would on W3C website, what do you think is the problem?

is it possible to find my posts here in this forum as I have already posted a topic on the same subject and I originally wanted to branch out on the same topic rather than repeating myself.

You seem to not understand what PHP is and how it works. All websites you've listed are average at best.

Start with PHP manual: http://php.net/manual/en/

Some courses that might help you understand stuff: All of those courses are high quality commercial courses. However some of them offer trial. You can also find lots of good courses on other web related topics.

In any case, browsers do not parse PHP code.
The webserver serving up the webpage is the one that parses the code. Therefore, you should get exactly the same HTML code to your browser regardless of which browser you use.
