PHP if statement help

I have this code

 

<?php if ( $page == "home" ) { echo 
'<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/expand.js"></script>';}
?>

 

for $page, can I put several pages in the quotes where I currently list "home".  If I can, how would I do this,  because putting comma doesn't seem to work for me, although syntax error is not displayed.

 

Thanks in advance

You need the "or" separator. You can use the literal "or" or the symbol based version "||" (two straight lines aka pipe character.). I personally prefer the pipe character.

As an example, both of the additions I made are valid. You can pick which ever you prefer, the literal "or" is generally used as an all caps to make it easier to see at a glance in the condition.

<?php if ( $page == "home" OR $page=="contact" || $page=="about" ) { echo

Another alternative is to use an array and the in_array() function. If you will use the "list" of pages for several things this would probably be a better approach. You can define the array once and the reuse it for whatever you need.

$pages = array('home', 'contact', 'about');

if(in_array($page, $pages))
{
    //Do something
}

this is the way to do it.
