Else - PHP

We discussed statements briefly in our last article and even got a sneak peek of an IF-statement. Sure I mean, the image was blurry, and the moment it saw us it ran off into the forest. But we saw it. Honest. So in this article, we're going to take a much closer look at PHP statements and even start learning about loops.

<html>

<body>


<?php


$your_answer = "Yes";


if ( $your_name == "Yes")

{

echo Now I am the both the Happiest and Fattest man alive!';

}

else

{

echo 'Jennifer Aniston is prettier than you!';

}

echo 'I'm Brad Pitt's cousin, Fat Pitt.';

?>


</body>

</html>

Several things to note about the above code: 1) Jennifer Aniston is not hotter than Angelina Jolie, unless Jennifer Aniston or her lawyer are reading this, in which case she is very hot and a great actress to boot 2) If the value in $your_answer is equal to Yes, then the following will print:

  Now I am both the Happiest and Fattest man alive!

  I'm Brad Pitt's cousin, Fat Pitt.

If the value in $your_answer had not been Yes, this would have printed:

  Jennifer Aniston is prettier than you!

  I'm Brad Pitt's cousin, Fat Pitt.

Note that either way the line: I'm Brad Pitt's cousin, Fat Pitt prints out. This is because that echo is placed outside of the IF...Else statement and prints regardless of whether the criteria is met.
