  • about the php menu

    I need a a couple of points clarified about the php menu thing from Naval.

    I have the menu bar made, and the page made, and I want to include it on lots of pages. So I follow the directions for placement, etc.

    So, now, do I understand correctly that I have to define and publish that page as php page?

    And, if so, then when I am making a link to it, the URL would end in .php, and NOT .html, right?

    Thanks for clearing this up for me.

    Re: about the php menu

    Hi, publish all pages as .php. The one the menu is on & the page that the menu will land on.
    Correct on the changing all the links from html to php.

    Also remember this will not work across different directories/folders. So if you want the menu to open on pages in a different directory that you publish to, donít forget to publish the menu to that directory as well.



    Good luck.
    Regards Chris.

      Oh yes, it WILL work. But, to make sure that the links will work through folders, the include command should be modified in

      include('/home/username/public_html/menu.php');

      There are other ways to link through folders, but they are different depending on the folder level. so i prefer this one.

        Thanks to both of you for your responses.
        Sorry to be so dim, but does this mean that instead of putting in the html box

        <?php
        include("menu.php");
        menu();
        ?>

        I should put

        <?php
        include('/home/username/public_html/menu.php');
        ?>

        and if so,
        so you mean the actual word home
        or do you mean the name of my website?(www.name of site.com)

        jeesh I feel so thick-skulled..

        thanks again..

              Ah! Nice one Naval.
              Have I got this right? assuming I have the .php page with the menu on, published to the public_html directory. I would just place the codes below in the page html box according to the directory that a page is in?

              <?php
              include('/home/myusername/public_html/dir1.menu.php');
              ?>

              <?php
              include('/home/myusername/public_html/dir2.menu.php');
              ?>

              <?php
              include('/home/myusername/public_html/dir3.menu.php');
              ?>
              Regards Chris.

                  ????? Sorry Chris, what does dir1.menu.php stand for?
                  You simply make it:

                  <?php
                  include('/home/myusername/public_html/menu.php');
                  ?>

                  The directory where the specific page (the main pages, not the menu one) is, is not important. You simply call it from "public_html".

                    Re: about the php menu

                    Arh! Got it. So itís actually its got similarities (in my mind) to the old iframe method, but just calling for a .php page.
                    Presumably if I wanted keep things tidy & wanted to place all my templates/menuís/ that I may wish to call up in a directory called ďdir1Ē then I could use the code below on my target page.

                    <?php
                    include('/home/myusername/public_html/dir1.menu.php');
                    ?>



                    Thank you.
                    Regards Chris.

                      Re: about the php menu

                      If you place all your menus and templates in a directory called "dir1" call them from whatever page, located in whatever folder, the command should be

                      <?php
                      include('/home/myusername/public_html/dir1/menu.php');
                      ?>

                      a " / " after dir1, not a dot "."
