Hey guys,

I have been working on some code and have struck a problem, I tried to make the code as easy as possible to edit at a later date.

The issue comes when I include a config file from a directory for a certain page, this config file decides which document related to the current page to display, the issue is that when I try to include the documents from the config file I just get white space and the script seems to die but with NO errors.

Am I missing something?

index.php

<?php

	@include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/internal/config/global.php");

?>

		}
	}

?>

<?php

	if( !isset( $_GET['page'] ) {
		include("form.php");

if( !@include( $path ) ) {

That part of the syntax is totally wrong. I don't think that an include is not meant to be in an if statement. Also replace the include with the require function which does the same thing but with error reporting. Also I would advice removing those @ symbols. So the above quote should be the following:

if(file_exists($path)) {
require( $path );
} else {
0

I think is better write in config.php so:

switch ($_GET['page']) {
    case 'checkform':
        include("validate.php");
   break;
}
