    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 "."

    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.

    ????? 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

    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');
    ?>

    There are other ways to link through folders, but they are different depending on the folder lavel. 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..

    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.

    started a topic about the php menu

    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.
Working...
