http://www.hartake.com./xindex.php

After months/years..I have this as PHP/CSS -just a few glitches
There are a few items I can't find the answer to in website tutorials
The xindex.php page loads without content..
The links on the left under Pages will load Content BUT

1) How do I get the page..xindex.php to load with content?
2) The top margin on the "header/content" section is set to 20 px in the style sheet but is flush with the top on IE?
3) Browser check? (I only have IE on this new computer)
4) Can I use that page as an Index page on the server? Just rename xindex.php as index.php?
5) Do I need a "template" and an "index" with PHP? What is on an index rather than a template..as my page seems to combine both?
6) Any other glitches or fixes..please let me know??

Anyone who wants to look at the entire bunch of pages..All the pages for that php page are titled...xindex.css..xmenu1.php...xmenu2.html..except the pages which are simply "page1.html...etc"
THANKS!!

Yup; that'd be the simple way

"index" is just the filename most web servers by default look for to serve if you go to a directory (domain.tld/etc/)

a "template" when dealing with PHP usually means the structure which the whole page is composed of - usually just a primary file (often index.php) and other files included into that file

just check all your margin and padding values; you've been too unspecific or the opposite

OK
The content div..has a command line..
>?php include ("$page.html") ?<
So the menu links in the lefthand menu call in content..
If I put "content" where that command is..inside the div..What happens when the pages are called in?
I will try putting some content in and see what happens..However..
Is there a command..that can be set on the page..that "calls" content for that page when it loads?
There is an example on the Guru's Network but I can't get it to work on that page

Thanks Resio..
I tried putting "content" into the content div on that page..and the content loaded from the left menu links ..into a big mess right together..two pages of content at once..
So there must be a command...if/else type..that goes somewhere on that page or in the menu..
Or that may be why there is an index and template page..
So..anyone else? Any help appreciated!

This is very confusing, and I'm not sure how to answer your question.

We will need to see your PHP, and how you have set up your includes/calls for content before we can offer any specific help.


In general, there are two basic concepts for setting up templates like this -

- you have 1 file that is your main page, with links to various sections of your site. when you click on the links, it reloads the page with a variable, such as 'index.php?page=this'. In the 'content' area of the page, you have an include which pulls in content based on the variable passed in the url (includes a file containing your content).

- you have a seperate file containing your navigation, and each page that you create has a PHP include() which pulls in that file.

You need to specify a file to include by default, when 'page' is empty, rather than hard coding default content into the page.

Ok
Thank You So Much DL-44
I will paste the two files here..but I am a bit leery because it is code..SO..I will Turn the <> around >< before >!DocType and after </head<
The two pages plus the xmenu2.html ..etc all load into to make that page I linked above..I just need to know how to get the content to load on that first "xindex.php."

ONE is the main "template" page or Index. The second is the MENU
Those are the two active files..
FIRST..TEMPLATE OR INDEX..(note the turned around <> first and last...)

>!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html><head><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="xindex.css" />
<title>HARTAKE</title>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
</head<

<body>
<div id="menu1">
<?php include ("xmenu1.php") ?>
</div>
<div id="head">
<?php include ("xhead.html")?>
</div>
<div id="content">
<?php include ("$page.html") ?>
</div>
<div id="menu2">
<?php include ("xmenu2.html") ?>
</div>
<div id="foot">
<?php include ("xfoot.html") ?>
</div>
</body>
</html>

SECOND PAGE...MENU
<p>PAGES</p>
<ul> <li><a href="/xindex.php?page=page1"> Page 1 </a></li>
<li><a href="/xindex.php?page=page2"> Page 2 </a></li>
<li><a href="/xindex.php?page=page3"> Page 3 </a></li>
</ul>

Ok
Where and how do I specify the default file to pull in content when the page is empty?

That is the question..
I tried various if/else includes in various places but so far..no luck
