Multiple commands in one statement with a single line output?

Hi, I'm modifying the following PHP code from a Wordpress plugin:

 

/* Byline. */

if ( $instance['byline'] )
echo do_shortcode( "<p class='byline'>{$instance['byline']}</p>" );

/* Entry title. */

if ( 'widget' !== $instance['entry_container'] && $instance['entry_title'] && $show_entry_title ) {
the_title( "<{$instance['entry_title']} class='entry-title'><a href='" . get_permalink() . "' title='" . the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) . "' rel='bookmark'>", "</a></{$instance['entry_title']}>" );
}
elseif ( 'widget' !== $instance['entry_container'] && $show_entry_title ) {
the_title( "<a href='" . get_permalink() . "' title='" . the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) . "' rel='bookmark'>", "</a>" );
}

 

The output currently is:

[ December 13, 2010 ]

Post Title

 

I'm trying to combine the two so that the output appears on one line.  What is the operator to execute multiple command in one statement?

 

Thanks.

I don't understand the question. What do you mean 'execute multiple command in one statement'?

 

if you want to put 2 strings together, just concatenate them with .

 

$str = "hello". " ". "world";
echo $str;
[code]

output:

hello world

Sorry if I wasn't clear, I'm just asking how to combine the Byline section into the Entry title.  The end result as I imagine it would look something like (this code doesn't work, of course):

 

if ( $instance['byline']&& 'widget' !== $instance['entry_container'] && $instance['entry_title'] && $show_entry_title ) {
echo do_shortcode( "<span class='byline'>{$instance['byline']}</span>" ) && the_title( "<{$instance['entry_title']} class='entry-title'><a href='" . get_permalink() . "' title='" . the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) . "' rel='bookmark'>", "</a></{$instance['entry_title']}>" );
}

dot (period) is the concatenation operator. so to combine the output of the 2 commands, you'd do something more like

 

echo do_shortcode( "<span class='byline'>{$instance['byline']}</span>" ) . the_title( "<{$instance['entry_title']} class='entry-title'><a href='" . get_permalink() . "' title='" . the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ) . "' rel='bookmark'>", "</a></{$instance['entry_title']}>" );
}
