Hi forum members,

I have been doing the following tutorial:

I have a question regarding it but when I click the “ask a question” tab once the tutorial is completed, nothing happens and I am unable to make a comment on that particular tutorial.

My question – if you can help – is the same as that posted by the last person who commented on this particular tutorial:

I have followed all the steps but get the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘@’ in /home/ledlight/public_html/custom_scripts/dataflow_scheduled_export.php on line 26

Not sure if this is due to an error in the code which is attached to the tutorial or it is an error on my part – I have reviewed all the edits I made to the code template and they all seem correct. Furthermore, the only “@” in the code is that in my email address.

Thanks in advance.

Has anyone encountered this sort of parse error and any idea of a solution?

Hello Hershill. Most likely the issue with this is with the @ symbol being cut out from this line:

$your_email = “”; // Your email address

Try to see if this is what’s causing it. Hopefully this can be resolved soon.
