Problem with file shirts.php

Dear sirs,

Why do I keep getting the following error on this page?

Notice: Undefined variable: products in C:\xampp\htdocs\shirts\shirts.php on line 18

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in C:\xampp\htdocs\shirts\shirts.php on line 18

Most likely, from what I'm seeing with your error messages, PHP thinks that you haven't created the $products array yet. This is why you're getting the first error. I'm pretty sure that the second error is caused by basically the same thing.

In order to really understand the problem, though, I think I'd have to take a look at your PHP code. Could you post it here? Thanks!

Hey Gabriela, the first error means you haven't defined your variable. In PHP terms, this means you have to initalize it before it can be used. I'm not sure what your code looks like, but you can simply add in $products = " "; to set the variable to nothing. This may solve your problem for the invalid argument, too. I'm not sure what your foreach() loop looks like, either.

Thanks a lot Alex!

Same as the comment above. Either the variable products doesn't exist or is empty. Posting your code would help us figure out what exactly is the problem
