Basic PHP Question - Way Of Putting Menu In PHP To Save Changing Every Page?

Discussion in 'PHP' started by bad_bob00, Mar 25, 2008.

    Hi there,

    I don't actually know how to use PHP but i'm wondering if theres any kind of way of doing the following...

    I have a website which has lots of html pages. I have a menu which sometimes gets updated, and was wondering if there is a way of changing the menu on just one file, and having all the other html pages automatically update to the new menu?

    Thanks for any help

    Thanks but I don't need it to show "active" tabs or anything, I just need the same menu displayed on every page.

    Sorry I would edit the php myself if I knew how to - do I simply need to delete some sections of text?


    Thanks:)

    Make sure the extension of your page is .php (e.g. index.php)

    Then all you need is;

    <!-- HTML Goes anywhere outside the PHP tags -->
    
    <?php
    
    include '/includes/navigation.php';
    
    ?>
    
    <!-- HTML Goes anywhere outside the PHP tags -->
