PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Adding a Contact Form Working with Get Variables

<?php if (isset($_GET["status"])) AND ($_GET["status"]=="thanks") { ?> loads blank page

The above loads a blank page but if I take out the isset part and only use $_GET["status"] the page performs as expected. This leads me to believe that the else statement is working because I will get the blank form and when the form is submitted then get redirect to the thanks message.

I did notice in the video that there is only 1 closing parenthesis just before the AND but I tried both 1 and 2, neither work.

You're not getting the parentheses right. As it is you're closing the if statement before the AND. The other way you said you tried wouldn't fix the issue.

php <?php if (isset($_GET["status"]) AND ($_GET["status"]=="thanks")) { ?>
