You have a character 'd' following the end-of-statement marker ';'
PHP reads this 'd' as the start of the next statement, which continues with
the $sql of the statement below
> $sql = "SELECT * FROM cms_pages WHERE page_name='$PHP_SELF'";
d $sql = "SELECT * FROM cms_pages WHERE page_name='$PHP_SELF'";
is a syntax error. PHP was not expecting a variable ($sql) to follow the 'd'
token, and told you so.
To fix it, remove the 'd' from after the semi-colon on the include_once line
> $result = mysql_query($sql);
> $page = mysql_fetch_array($result);
> <title><? echo $page[page_title]; ?></title>
