So in my PHP include I have three links and they all look like this ../index.php I have three different folders in my site root. My problem is I can't get the links to work for all three of the folders. If I do the relative link like this index.php then it works for the other half. Do I have to do absolute links then for the php include? Thanks
This still might be an html issue. Are each of these directories only one level deep? If so, then ../ will take you back to the domain root - and index.html would be the bare domain's index page. If some uses of the include are more than one folder deep, then you need ../../
The big question is what does "work" mean - are you trying to send the user to the domain root? If so, then it's not a good practice to use index.html - use http://www.example.com/ instead. If you're trying to send people to the home page of the same directory where the include is being used, then you don't need any ../ at all.
