MVC Advice

Recommended Posts

Im trying to convert myself to this MVC style coding as well as using frameworks. (Currently learning codeigniter) anyway I was wondering if there was any generally accepted rules on how to load views. should I separate my header, footer, sidebars, and mainpage all into their own templates and load them together or is it best practice to combine those all into one template and just load one thing? 

 

Appreciate the replies

 

Thanks,

Mike

Having separate templates will allow for easier edits, for example if your want to change how your header/footer/sidebar looks you only need to edit one file. If you didn't separate your view components then you will need to edit every single template.

Do note that codeignitor is dead and is no longer being worked on. I think the trend now is Laravel 4.

Thanks a lot for the info on codeignitor, the reviews I read (from recent dates) failed to mention that.
