I have the following code:

</tr>

<?php
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "boxing") == 0)
      {
            require_once('inc/boxing_sub.inc');
      }
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "kickboxing") == 0)
      {
            require_once('inc/kickboxing_sub.inc');
      }
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], martial") == 0)
      {
            require_once('inc/martial_sub.inc');
      }
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "special") == 0)
      {
            require_once('inc/special_sub.inc');
      }
?>

<tr>


as you can see it includes a .inc file as required..... at least i thought i could do that, but the result is an empty page..

if i just did
echo "test"; in the place of the require_once, I get the test echoed out where it should be.

what could be the problem?

thanks

require_once() should be used in cases where the same file might be included and evaluated more than once during a particular execution of a script (from php.net)

it seems to me that you are trying to include different files depending of which if statement is being called.

personnaly on a situation like that i would go with a switch statement.

switch($_POST['category'];)

        {
             case "boxing":

                include ('inc/boxing_sub.inc');

             break;
        }

        {  case "kickboxing":

                 include ('inc/kickboxing.inc');

             break;
         }

etc.

      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "kickboxing") == 0)

      }
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], martial") == 0)
      {
            include('inc/martial_sub.inc');
      }
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "special") == 0)
      {
            include('inc/special_sub.inc');
      }
?>

the above code still generate no contents

but if i did:
<?php
      if (strcmp($_POST['category'], "boxing") == 0)
      {
            echo "why";
        }
?>

if echos why at the correct location..

any ideas?

thanks

hahahaha oh wow that was stupid of me :P

     if (strcmp($_POST['category'], martial") == 0)

missing quote with error report disabled (I just installed a new PHP and the error reporting was on none it seems)

and also $_POST is meant to be $_GET :P

thanks for your help, I will give you the points none the less
