First post here, I'm in the process of learning PHP , I'm digesting
a few books as we speak.
I'm working on a content heavy website that provides a lot of
information, a template system would be great and so i've been
looking at ways to create dynamic data with a static navigation
So far, using the require_once(); function seems to fit the bill in
order to bring in the same header html file on each page.
I've also looked at Smartys template system.
I wondered how you folk would go about creating a template system ?
My second question might be me jumping the gun here, I haven't come
across this part in my book but i'll ask about it anyway. I often
see websites that have a dynamic body and static header, and their
web addresses end like this: "index.php?id=445" where 445 i presume
is some file reference.
What is this called ? It seems like the system i'm after but it
doesn't appear in my book, If anyone could let me know what this
page id subject is called i can do some research on the subject.
Have a look at the PHP manual and be sure to bookmark it! ;)
The ID you mentioned is a query. "id=445&other_id=653" would be a
To retrieve data passed via this querystring you can use $_GET (http://de.php.net/manual/en/reserved.variables.get.php
