PHP Template Include

    Hi guys,

    I recently came across a pretty average idea for putting together an e-commerce site for a client.

    I wanted a template (header and all that) coded in php to bring in content to a certain place in the template. The code lists the bare parts of it, like the <html> and <head>, and (optional) side bar etc, leaving main content blank so stuff can be imported into it.

    If you don't know what I mean, go to TurnKey I.T Solutions - Web Design, I.T Consultancy, VoIP Telecommunications - Based in Somerset and press cmd+u - they only have the side bar links and the <head> <html> info, just pulling in different links to fit in the actual main content. But how do I make that happen without using frames? J'ai no idea.

    Hay Tim.

    <?php include"header.php"?>
    <div>
    ....
    </div>
    <?php include"footer.php"?>

    Then by making a change in either the footer or header php files changes any page using those files all at once. Think a server side CSS sheet if you will which allows (X)HTML. :)

    ahh didn't notice your post tbwcf, but thanks!

    i've used it before, but i was looking at the opposite function, getting the header to do a php include of a file upon request.
