Hi everyone, I am new to PHP and I am not understanding some of it functions and rules on how to do things. I have a few questions but I will work on one at time so that I can understand and absorb the information giving to me.

The problem that I have been having the past two days is that my flash is showing up on all my pages because I have told all my page to go to my index page which is below, because it has my navigation, header, footer, and so on.

I have tried to place my flash on a different php page but include my flash.inc.php page to the index and ofcourse I still have the same problem it shows up on all my othe pages. Is there a way to get around the problem that I am having and just maintain the flash on only the index page; but not have it on my other page that the index page are connected to.

Thanks in advance

Hi

If you are including a block of code into each page, but you only want it to show on one page, a simple fix would be to retrieve the url, explode it and find the last chunk - if it is 'index.php', then show the flash block, otherwise do not show it.

<?php
$url = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$pieces = explode('/', $url);
$page = $pieces[sizeof($pieces) - 1];

if($page == 'index.php')
{
//FLASH CODE HERE
}

?>

A more efficient version of that code is as follows:

if (basename($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) == 'index.php')
{
//FLASH CODE HERE
}

cool... i answer the question, then learn something new myself - so that basename method pulls out the file name? with externsion?
