PHP and html

Recommended Posts

Hi, first time here so excuse me if this is in the wrong place!
Im just learning php and am havin a problem with my site.  I have a layout.php file that contains my layout code and then i have a few pages which call on this file for their layouts.
Im not sure how to explain my problem so again excuse me if it doesnt make any sense!
On my layout.php page, i have used the echo "(then the html code for my layout in here) to get the layout i want.
I've then interupted the echo function using the followng code:
(imagine this is part of my layout code)";include ("menu.php");"(then the rest of my layout code goes here.

The problem im having is that it doesnt seem to be reading the html code after i interrupt the php echo function.
I know this probably doesnt make any sense, but i cant think of a better way to describe my problem! If anyone could offer any help id greatly appreciate it!!
??? ??? ???

So you have it look like this?

[code]
<h3> My header</h3>
<br />
<p>This is some text</p>

<?php include ("menu.php");?>

<p>Now some more code here</p>
[/code]

Or if not, can you post what you have ?

If I read that right, your problem is this:
<?[color=blue]php[/color] [color=green]echo[/color] [color=red]"html"[/color]; [color=green]include[/color]([color=red]"menu.php"[/color]); [color=red]"html"[/color]; ?>

The issue:
Once you close the echo you have to reopen it:
<?[color=blue]php[/color] [color=green]echo[/color] [color=red]"html"[/color]; [color=green]include[/color]([color=red]"menu.php"[/color]); [color=green]echo[/color] [color=red]"html"[/color]; ?>

You also might try this:
<?[color=blue]php[/color] [color=green]echo[/color] [color=red]"html"[/color] . [color=green]include[/color]([color=red]'menu.php'[/color]) . [color=red]"html"[/color]; ?>

Basically the dot says there is now some php that needs to be executed before it is echoed, then the closing dot says to stop executing.
