Is there a way to perform arithmetic operators in a hyperlink using PHP? I'm trying to create a NEXT link to will increment my variable by +1 but am having problems with the syntax. Can anybody help please?

My code is:
echo "<a href='imageonly.php?portid='.$port_id+1.'>NEXT</a>";

and
$query = "select * from table where portid = ".$_GET['portid'];

Thanks for your help.

you are missing some quotes in your echo.

echo "<a href='imageonly.php?portid=".$port_id+1."'>NEXT</a>";

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Thanks for clearning up the quotes, but now I'm getting this error and I'm not sure what it means:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in /home/cbesh2/public_html/customseating/code-only/imageonly.php on line 96

I've done a search for this error but don't understand. Any suggestions?

Okay, I got it, I got it! What I did is move the hyperlink further down the page. Then I created a separate line that incremented the variable, so that if the NEXT link was not selected then the new value wouldn't effect the script.

Here's the code:

$port_id++;
echo "<a href='imageonly.php?portid=".$port_id."'>NEXT</a>";

Thanks for your help.
