php include

Ok, so I was wondering:If you use "php include" function, is that sort of like using iframe? And if so, how do you decide the size of the included file, so that it isn't displayed in the same resolution covering the other content? Do you put it inside a <div>, and then give the div width and height sizes?

the php include function allows you to insert content from another file. it's not an iframe, although it is very similar. where an iframe adds a box with another page in, the php include function simply uses the coding inside the file and puts it into the file with the include function in. so when you preview the file, instead of seeing a page with a box with another pae inside it, you see the page, and the included file outputs into the same page. notes: for easy reference save include files as filename.inc.INCLUDE.INC FILE:

<img src="header.gif" width="100" border="0" />

MAIN FILE:

<php include("include.inc"); ?><p align="justify">Welcome to my site... do you like my logo above?</p>

WOULD APPEAR AS:

<img src="header.gif" width="100" border="0" /><p align="justify">Welcome to my site... do you like my logo above?</p>

hope this clarifies things a bit.Matt

Ah, it does... :)So if I wanted to make an external menu, I would make an inc file with code for just the menu, not the
<html><head>...</head><body>...

etc.? Just for example

<div>Menu: <a>1</a><a>2</a></div>

?
