Of course, it's a good idea (and a good practice) to separate folders for each section of your site ("/images/", "/blahblah/", etc.). But, putting all include files in *one* folder (like "/inc/" or "/includes/" as suggested).

You mean the "includes"?

Right. Perhaps. But you only need time to find out... unless you name your folders (or included files) something like: /thisIsMyVeryhardT0GuessFolderHehehe/ thisIsMyVeryhardT0GuessFolderHehehe.withVeryHardt0GuessExt maybe it takes more time ;) - E -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
