I hope I'm not out of place here, but I have a problem that seems to be
I am using some include statements for page headers with the pages in
various directories on the site. The problem is this... if I put
relative statements in the page (header.php) like ../images/file.jpg and
../file.php etc, if the page into which I include header.php is not in
the top level directory, the links do not work and I have to copy
header.php to header1.php and change the references to /images otherwise
images are not displayed and links to not work in href.

1.  top level file books.php
include ("lib/db1.php");    // Connect to database
include ("header1.php");

2. subdirectory: /authors/a.php
include "../header.php";

I thought that using referencing the top level of the directory tree
(../) would work form anywhere within the tree?
Am I the victim of my own misconceptions here?
TIA to set me straight.
