You cant include the file like that, if you want to send the parameters you can set it before including the file, so when it loads the banner file it will have the id you set it before.

$id = 12;
$banner_file = "banner.php";
include $banner_file;

Another thing you can do its to send the parameters in the main file (where your include the banner file) like this:

$banner_file = "banner.php";
include $banner_file;

So in the banner file you can get the $_GET["id"] value.

technically no, you can put an include anywhere.  If there is data above it, it's passed into the include.  An include isnothing but a reference.  The php engine looks at the include statement, finds the file it's pointing to, and just puts it straight into the page. That's it, if you set a variable before the include, and in the include try to reference it, it works just the same.
