Hi,

Can anybody provide me some examples of using templates in php

PHP templates? what do you mean? like frameworks?

PHP templates? what do you mean? like frameworks?

Yes, if I want to create one according to my requirement.

There are functions for including in a script, a script held in another file. Is this what you mean? i.e. you can define the functions that you will use (and constants, variables, etc) and then include them.

Syntax:

include 'functions.php';
include "variables.inc";

See also, include_once, require and require_once.

No,
I actually mean to seperate presentation layer from business logic.

a template

<html>
<head>
<style>
.left {width:50% text-align:right; float:left;}
.right{width:50% text-align:left; float:right;}
</style>
</head>
</body>
<div class=left><?php include('left.php'); ?></div>
<div class=right><?php include('right.php'); ?></div>
</body>
</html>

a trivial example, yet without any idea of
'my requirement' its difficult
the template above is the <style></style> in the head
typically the layout is created in an external stylesheet, that specifies,
absolute (bad only works on 1 screensize) or
relative (good)
placement and size colors transparency visibility of the elements to appear on a html page.
then the stylesheet is referenced in each pages source and ensures uniformity of appearance.
also allows for easy alteration of appearance by editing a single stylesheet
in php it is simple,
each page is (trivial example)

<?php ob_start("ob_gzhandler");
include ('header file');
/* some code to generate a body or process data */
?>
<LINK Rel="stylesheet" Type="text/css" Media="screen" href="/style.css.php">
</head>
<body>
some static html
<?php
/* some more php to do something else */
include ('footer file');
ob_flush();
?>

where header file includes the lines

<LINK Rel="stylesheet" Type="text/css" Media="screen" href="/style.css.php">
<script type=text/javascript language='javascript' src='/script.js.php'>

edit: in my sites all files are given php extensions and the first lines of code are

<?php 
header ('content-type: /* [b]actual content:: text html text/css text/javascript[/b] */');
ob_start("ob_gzhandler"); ?>

the last line of code is

<php 
ob_flush(); 
?>

in case mod_deflate is not enabled in the server

A CSS template
style.css.php

<?php header ('content-type: text/css');
ob_start("ob_gzhandler"); ?>
/*<style>*/

he isn't asking for a css or any html/xhtml template...

the delhi guy was asking for something like the Zend, CakePHP, PRADO, seagull, and etc. framework.

Yes, you are right.

you know when you use a template like them, they have a manual or documentation provided at there website.... on there manual, examples are provided.. so its going to cost some reading and testing.
