Include file problems.. Pls. Help

Recommended Posts

I translated an usual HTML page into PHP and inserted the Include file tag but the include file does not show.
When i test the include file on its own .. it works.
I am certain I have something wrong in the syntax .. or the way the code is presented.
Please take a look at the code below and help.

The code that i tried to include is : <?php include("http://mysitename.com/banners.php"); ?>

The code which is not working is:
echo "                <div align=\"center\">\n";
echo "                  <center>\n";
echo "        <table border=\"0\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" width=\"160\" style=\"border-collapse: collapse\" bordercolor=\"#111111\">\n";
echo "          <tbody><tr> \n";
echo "            <td> \n";
[color=#CC0000]echo "  <p align=\"center\"><?php include(\"http://www.mydomainname.com/banners.php\"); ?></td>\n";[/color]
echo "          </tr>\n";
echo "        </tbody></table>\n";
echo "                  </center>\n";
echo "                </div>\n";
echo "                <p>\n";
echo "        <br>\n";

Please help am going nutty with this as a newbie.
Thanks in advance.

First of all, you dont want to use echo like that [code]
$include = include('http://www.mydomainname.com/banners.php'); //should be an .inc file
<td><?php echo $include;?></td>//or the code below

<td><?php include('http://www.mydomainname.com/banners.php'); ?></td>

Play around with it and you should make the banners.php local and name it banners.inc

Hope to help!

Do not use the full URL in your include statement. Since it looks like you're including a local file, just use the local path.
