Getting PHP to display html.

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

The site i've been working on since September/October is almost finished now (for a University project), but have just been stumbled by the last peice of code im doing. Just wondering if any of your guys have any insight to how to fix it.

---

I have serval pages using an iFrame which im using to load a menu, im using this menu to provide some security. E.g. if roleID = 1 display links for admins to use, if roleID = 2 display links for teachers else go way (by this it loads up the denied.php file telling the user the page is resitricted.

Now my problem is that my html code for these links is interfering with the php code. Is ther anyway to get them to work together, if so how? Thanks in advance!

[code]  <?php    
if ($roleID ==2){
    
        
        <a href="excel.php" target="_parent">Download Database</a>
           <a href="urlenter.php" target="_parent">URL Page</a>
        <a href="admin.php" target="_parent">CP Home </a>
        <a href="Teacher_creation.php" target="_parent">Admin/Teacher Creation </a>
        Account Removal
    
} elseif ($roleID ==1) {
         <a href="../excel.php" target="_parent">Download Database</a>
}    else {

        header("Location: denied.php");
        exit;
};?>[/code]

You'd be wanting to escape those html double quotes wouldn't you?

[code]
  <?php    
if ($roleID ==2){
    
        
        echo "<a href=\"excel.php\" target=\"_parent\">Download Database</a>";
        echo "<a href=\"urlenter.php\" target=\"_parent\">URL Page</a>";
        echo "<a href=\"admin.php" target=\"_parent\">CP Home </a>";
        echo "<a href=\"Teacher_creation.php\" target=\"_parent\">Admin/Teacher Creation </a>";
        echo "Account Removal";
    
} elseif ($roleID ==1) {
        echo " <a href=\"../excel.php\" target=\"_parent\">Download Database</a>";
}    else {

        header("Location: denied.php");
        exit;
};?>
[/code]
