Fatal Error: Function name must be a string

Good morning! :)

I've created a new shopping cart using the new 4.5 eCart Extension. I've had v4 working in the past with no issues, but this is a brand new cart using the the new version.

On order confirmation, I'm getting the following error message;
Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /public_html/confirm.php on line 306

Line 306

php:
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".session_id()  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"")  ."" . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GetShipping()  ."") . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GetTax()  ."") . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GrandTotal()  ."") . "|" . "".$date(m/d/Y)  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["firstname"]))?$_POST["firstname"]:"")  ." ".((isset($_POST["lastname"]))?$_POST["lastname"]:"")  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]))?$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]:"")  ."";




I have Dreamweaver CS3.
I am using Apache, Linux PHP, and MySQL.
I have probably 7 other domains with functional v4 carts (not v.4.5)

I am populating both Order and OrderDetail tables when the transaction is completed.

confirm.php - Lines 297 thur 357:

Any suggestions?

I think I see the problem. You have the date code as:

$date(m/d/Y)

it should be:
$date("m/d/Y")


change line 306 to:

php:
$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".session_id()  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["email"]))?$_POST["email"]:"")  ."" . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GetShipping()  ."") . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GetTax()  ."") . "|" . WA_eCDB_ConvertNumber("".$eCart1->GrandTotal()  ."") . "|" . "".$date("m/d/Y")  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_POST["firstname"]))?$_POST["firstname"]:"")  ." ".((isset($_POST["lastname"]))?$_POST["lastname"]:"")  ."" . "|" . "".((isset($_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]))?$_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]:"")  ."";

Fatal error: Function name must be a string

I am having Trouble with something similar.

I am trying to create a php script for an online form, and the following appears:
Fatal error: Function name must be a string in D:\Hosting\3560291\html\contactformprocess.php on line 9

My code is the one below, can someone tell me whats wrong with it?

<?php

/* Subject and Email Variables */

$emailSubject = 'September 19th registration!';
$webMaster = 'cesct@ntplx.net';

/* Gathering Data Variables */
$emailFiled = $_POST('email');
$nameField = $_POST('name');
$phoneField = $_POST('phone');
$addressField = $_POST('address');
$hearField = $_POST('hear');
$travelersField = $_POST('travelers');
$commentsField = $_POST('comments');


$body = <<< EOD
<br><hr><br>
Email: $email <br>
Name: $name <br>
Phone: $phone <br>
Address: $address <br>
How did you hear about us?: $hear <br>
How many will be attending?: $travelers <br>
Comments: $comments <br>
EOD;

$headers = "From: $email\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type: text/html\r\n";
$success = mail($webMaster, $emailSubject, $body, $headers);

/* Results rendered as HTML */

$theResults = <<< EOD
<html>
<head>
<title>Connecticut Educational Services</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type="text/css">

font-weight: normal;
color: #666666;
text-decoration: none;
}
-->
</style>
<head>

<div>
<div align="left">Thank you for your interest! Your email will be answered very soon!</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>
EOD;
echo "$theResults";

your syntax for referring to form elements is not correct.

php:
$emailFiled = $_POST('email');

$nameField = $_POST('name');
$phoneField = $_POST('phone');
$addressField = $_POST('address');
$hearField = $_POST('hear');
$travelersField = $_POST('travelers');
$commentsField = $_POST('comments');




needs to be changed to:

php:
$emailFiled = $_POST['email'];

$nameField = $_POST['name'];
$phoneField = $_POST['phone'];
$addressField = $_POST['address'];
$hearField = $_POST['hear'];
$travelersField = $_POST['travelers'];
$commentsField = $_POST['comments'];
