Displaying a table when a link is clicked
I am looking for suggestions/guidance on some work I am about to take on.
I am creating a website for a restaurant, and they would like their menu displayed on site. The site will have a menu page, and i would like to split the menu into categories that would be listed down the left side of the screen. When a category is selected, a table will appear on the screen next to the category list displaying only the dishes in that category.
Furthermore, it would be good if the table for each category can be stored in separate files e.g one file for starters, one for mains etc, making it easier to amend each category separately.
I am not looking for anyone to write the code, as this is a good opportunity to learn more PHP (I have a basic knowledge so far). Im more interested in finding the basic structure i could use to make this work, what kind of PHP aspects I will need to use etc.
If you can offer and advice it would be greatly appreciated!
