Hello, all. I've been wanting to learn PHP and I just picked up a PHP book today to help me. I've been thumbing through the book and noticed that a lot of the code is within the <HEAD> tags of the webpage. Is it possible (like with JavaScript and CSS) to create an external PHP file and link to an HTML page usink <link rel...>? I searched the board before posting and couldn't find an anser.

Thanx in advance,

yup kinda i think what you mean is to include an external file from a page right???
stick this into the body tags of your code

<?php include('INCLUDED FILES URL'); ?>

hope that helps :thumbsup:

My first piece of advice would be to don't ever look at that book again. lol

PHP code placement isn't restricted to any particular place in the page.

I would start looking at the PHP manual:


then move on to:


for tips, tutorials, samples, etc.

Excellent! Good to know that all that code won't crowd the page.

I also checked out the PHP manual.

Thanx for the help guys...
