I am getting the following parser error from my code:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE, expecting ',' or ';' in C:\wamp\www\cromwellcc.org.uk_new\index.php on line 244.

My code on line 244 is: -

echo "<a href=\"news.php?barcode=" . $row[newsID] . "\">"$row['newsTimestamp']"</a>";

Can anyone see what the problem is?

Thanks in advance.

This is 100% a PHP question, nothing to do with MySQL.

But here:

echo "<a href=\"news.php?barcode=" . $row['newsID'] . "\">" . $row['newsTimestamp'] . "</a>";

You used the period (concatenation operator) correctly around $row['newsID']
You just needed to do the same thing around $row['newsTimeStamp']

Thanks Old Pedant! It now works.
