PHP Navigation problems

Discussion in 'Website Coding & Programming Forum:' started by Royale-Graphics, Oct 27, 2009.

  1. I am trying to create navigation using PHP to update my website automatically when an extra button is added. I have followed an online tutorial, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    I have created a PHP file for the navigation and then my usual html file. I have used 'include', but I'm not sure if I have coded it incorrectly. The code is below :icon_smile:

    (index.html)

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="css/styles.css"/>
    <?php include('scripts/nav.php'); ?>

    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="tabs4">
    <?php showNavigation('scripts/nav.php'); ?>

    </div>
    </body>
    </html>


    (nav.php)

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>

    </head>

    <body>
    <?php

    function showNavigation() {

    echo '<div id="tabs4">
    <ul>
    <li><a href="../index.html"><span>Home</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Price List</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Examples</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Styles</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Stock Images</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Artwork</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>How to Order</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Contact Us</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>About Us</span></a></li>
    <li><a href=""><span>Links</span></a></li>
    </ul>
    </div> ';
    }
    ?>

    </body>
    </html>

    You can't run php from a file with the extension html, so for a start, I think you need to rename your index.html to index.php.
     
  3. Have sorted it all out now, followed a different tutorial
