hi, i'm entry level webdesigner- following the advice of youtube tutorial "rrphillps" of serverside includes. http://www.youtube.com/user/rrphillips?blend=2&ob=1#p/u/143/9TrsRxFtgSA
really simple stuff; the idea is to put all your hyperlinks in an ".inc" file and link all your webpages to it.
but then he explains that your server needs to know to look for php scripts in ".html /.htm" files, so either we need to rename ".html" as ".phtml" or to create a simple ".htaccess" file that says
"AddType php-cgi .html .htm"
but i can only get the ".phtml" format to work for me.
my ".html" doc doesn't show the hyperlinks included in the ".inc " file.
ralph suggests that the html format is better & i'd like to know why i can get this to work on my server.
i thought it might have something to do with "appache handlers" but i really don't have a clue... thanx for your help
