Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
To begin I am totally unconversant with anything but html and not so good at that.
I have a home page with headers and menu bar across the top, links menu down the left side forget the main body.
Down the left are my links around 12 of them written up as :
<ul><li class="heading"><a href="construction1.htm" ><u><font size="-1"><font color="#000000">Honed Limestone</font></font></u></a></li></ul>
<ul><li class="heading"><a href="construction1.htm" >Antique Limestone</a></li></ul>
<ul><li class="heading"><a href="construction1.htm" >Random Limestone</a></li></ul>
What I want to do is make this menu (or even the whole page structure) appear throughout the site as a constant.
Is it possible ( I have php enabled i think)
Please! Baby steps :)
Yes, it is relatively easy using the php include or require function.
1. create text file containing the HTML for your menu, i.e. <ul><li><a etc.
2. Save this file as e.g. menu.html
3. In the pages that will use the menu use the following tag instead of the menu: <?php include ('menu.html');?>
require() and include() are identical in every way except how they handle failure. include() produces a Warning while require() results in a Fatal Error, i.e. if your menu file is not found it won't load the whole page.
I hope this helps.
