I new in php programming. I want to include a php file (top.php) into another (body.php). The file top.php is one level up. so the code looks  like ..
.....
//Code for body.php
include "../top.php";
......
Now the problem arises is, when I open body.php in a browser, it can't find the images attached in top.php. What can I do? Plz help me

Check that the images in ../top.php are loading correctly from top.  If not, then check the links.  Can you post ../top.php if you need more help?

location of top.php = root/
location of body.php = root/nextfolder/

Then your include is right:
include '../top.php';

So i'd look at your top.php code, and find out where it's pointing to the images!
If you direct your browser to top.php, does it display all images correctly? If so, then that maybe your problem! It is the image path relative to the body.php path, and NOT the top.php path ;)

If you are going to include top.php in a lot of files at different directory levels, you will have to make the links in top.php absolute, not relative.

ok ... i include my my top.php file and body.php file with this ... images of top.php file works good when i include top.php in files of same folder. But when i include it from different folder, the browser look for images in the folder where body.php resides, even if I use full url .. like

//code of body.php (which is in http://localhost/web/forum)
include "http://localhost/web/top.php";
....

Then you'll have to use an absolute path to the images instead:
<img src="http://www.servername.com/path/to/images/image.jpg" />

yes, that's what I meant, you will have to make the image paths in top.php absolute.

Thanx all... it works when I make all links absolute in top.php. But i wonder if it is possible to do same work with relative links in top.php? I guess not :(. And will it take longer time to load the images when I use absolute link then relative link?
