I am a newbie with no knowledge of php. i have a register.php file with piece of code in ..... tag that asks for username password and other details. The country is selected automatically and the script is included in the register.php file. I dont know how to find which is the correct variable and how to write if statement. The line where the variable can be found is echo ''.$ctr['country'].'';

I want to check the country in the if statement and if the country belongs to "India", it should show the register.php file contents (between the tags, else just show a message that "We accept registration only from India"

Can someone give me the syntax how to write? I searched for it but was very confused in php tags and semicolons

example

if country = india
<div>
..
..
..
</div>
else
custom message
endif

The first thing is - if you're going to be dealing with PHP scripts, you
NEED to learn PHP or hire a consultant who does. Don't expect to be
able to just copy scripts from the internet and expect them to work.
And don't expect others to help you all of the time just because you
don't know what you're doing. All of us here are volunteers; we help
those who try on their own. But we aren't unpaid consultants.

As to your question - why even bother to ask? Just tell people you only
accept registrations from India, and remove the country selection code
all together. Don't give someone a choice if there is only one correct
answer.

Sorry to bother, i tried a lot however struggled to get the correct syntax. the country dropdown is working fine and it disabled coz user is not given a choice to select the country, it is picked up automatically. I wanted the custom message for a reason that I do not want users from other countries to register. even if i tell abroad country user not to register, I cannot stop them. I will get an entry in my database that i will need to delete.

I thought I would get some help here and hence I posted. once again... sorry to bother

You can get help here. But if you're going to be using scripts (of any
kind), you need to learn the language that script is written in. You
will find this pretty much consistent across the internet. Some people
will help you for a bit. But if you don't try on your own, they'll
quickly stop helping. It's just a word to the wise.

As to your problem: If you've disabled the dropdown, then the user has
no choice and they won't be able to select a country. So there is
nothing to test for.

Also, you can never stop a person from registering; I could simply say
I'm from India, even though I'm in the United States. And if you don't
give me an option for the country, that's what I'll do. It will look
like I'm in India - but I'm not.

You don't appear to be asking for help, you appear to be asking for someone to write it for
you. "Asking for help" consists of "this is what I want, here's what I tried, this is what
happened, how can I fix it?"

As Jerry already told you: we are not unpaid consultants.

If you are going to use that on a public server - stop right now!

Hire someone to do the job for you or LEARN first.

Otherwise you will end up with a web site which is open to hackers who
will find the security problems in your PHP scripts.
