    I don't understand why I am getting this error

    here is the PHP code

    <?php

    /* Subject and Email Variables */

    $emailSubject = 'Insomnia All Ages Promoters';
    $webMaster = 'aaron@superbsoundentertainment.com';

    /* Gathering Data Variables */

    $nameField = $_POST('name');
    $emailField = $_POST('email');
    $mobileField = $_POST('mobile');
    $schoolField = $_POST('school');
    $dobField = $_POST('dob');
    $addressField = $_POST('address');
    $whyField = $_POST('why');

    $body = <<<EOD

    Why: $why <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

    Wherever you are referencing elements of the $_POST array (or any other array), you need to use ['square_brackets'] instead of ('parentheses') where you specify the array key/index. Parentheses are used when calling functions to enclose the argument lists (and also when defining functions).

    I honestly have no idea what that means i get the first part i have to change all the $_POST from ( to [ but what do you mean by where you specify the array key/index. Parentheses are used when calling functions to enclose the argument lists (and also when defining functions).
