View Full Version : php menu bar

I changed my menu bar to php following Navel's instructions, and I am not sure what time it is suppose to save me. I needed to add another button to the bar but I still needed to add it individually in BV. Is there another way of doing this saving me some time since the menu bar is in php? I made the separate menu bar in php and then I replace the others on my website.

If you do it properly, you will have to redo all your pages and publish all the pages in .php instead of .html - then you'll want to go delete all the .html pages from your public_html folder.

It will save you time in that if you do it correctly - whenever you change the menu, it will change automatically on all the other pages by just publishing the one new page. This is important on sites with lots of pages - not as important on sites with less pages. However, if you are going to use this - now is the time to make the change - as it will mean the se's will have to find the new .php pages and start over again with reading and ranking the pages for searches.

As Beth stated and per Navals instructions-

Each page needs to be saved as php

Each page needs to have the "include" script placed in an html box where desired on the page.

Re- read the instructions and give it another shot. Or- don't do it as your site is really small and it really isn't worth it.

Thanks Beth and Andy. I was hoping to have it easier in doing the menu.
