Error: end expected (to close if at 23:5) at 23:5)

Why is this and how can I fix it? Nothing I know I can do seems to work.

I’m willing to try and reply as complete as I can to questions.

When in doubt, call @nick


#3

You have an extra end right before your elseif item then line, because you indented the preceding else one level too deeply. Try making your indentation perfect and it’s easy to see when things aren’t matched like this. Hope this helps!
