I have a bit of php code to send me an email when someone logs in to my site. I want to include the person's name and two other bits from my database, but I can't get the formatting correct. I keep getting errors when I try to load the page. Here's the code which obviously has mistakes. The first code works, it's the second one that does not work for the $message line .

if (mysql_num_rows($exe) == 1) {
		  	$message_m = "Someone with RefCode ".$RefC." has viewed the homepage for the first time.";
			mail("ray.fellers@gmail.com", "Good News! Someone just logged in to view the home page", $message_m);
		  	setcookie("has_entered_correct_refcode", "true", time()+27000000, "/");
		  	setcookie("has_entered_correct_refcode_value", $_POST["refcode"], time()+27000000, "/");
		  	header("Location: /index.php");
		  	die();
if (mysql_num_rows($exe) == 1) {
		  	$message_m =" "'.$_POST['fname'].'," with RefCode "'.$RefC.'," and refund amount of "'.$_POST['refvalact'].'," has viewed the homepage.";
			mail("ray.fellers@gmail.com", "Good News! Someone just logged in to view the home page", $message_m);

		  	setcookie("has_entered_correct_refcode", "true", time()+27000000, "/");
		  	setcookie("has_entered_correct_refcode_value", $_POST["refcode"], time()+27000000, "/");
		  	header("Location: /index.php");
		  	die();
		  }

Thanks for any help to resolve this.

Your single quotes and commas need to be inside the double quotes, not outside.

This is a snippet from the code. "'.$_POST['fname'].'," so what do you mean the single quotes and commas need to be inside the double quotes? Could you please write an example so I can see the difference? Thanks.

Precisely that. EG

$message_m ="'" . $_POST['fname'] . "', with RefCode '" . $RefC . "', and .... ";

Alternatively, don't use concatenation if it's confusing you

$message_m = "'{$_POST['fname']}', with RefCode '$RefC', and .... ";

OK, I see what you mean. Thanks.
