Hi,

I've made 3 templates or more exactly 3 folders that have different pictures and css files in them.
And the index.php looks the following way:


<?php
$folder=$_REQUEST["folder"];
?>

<head>

<title>Toubes Design</title>
 <meta content="Web Design, Internetsivut, Kotisisvut" name="Toubes Design" />
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?=$folder?>/toubesdesign.css" />
</head>
<body>

<div id="banner">
<img src="<?=$folder?>/banner_test1.jpg"/>
</div>
<p class="nav">
<a href="http://www.toubes-page.net/td"><img src="<?=$folder?>/etusivu_o.jpg" name="etusivu" width="91" height="25" border="0"></a></p>

<p class="nav">
<a href="yritys" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('yritys','','<?=$folder?>/yritys_o.jpg',1)"><img src="<?=$folder?>/yritys.jpg" name="yritys" width="72" height="25" border="0"></a></p>


<p class="nav">
<a href="palvelut" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('palvelut','','<?=$folder?>/palvelut_o.jpg',1)"><img src="<?=$folder?>/palvelut.jpg" name="palvelut" width="95" height="25" border="0"></a></p>

<p class="nav">
<a href="portfolio" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('portfolio','','<?=$folder?>/portfolio_o.jpg',1)"><img src="<?=$folder?>/portfolio.jpg" name="portfolio" width="100" height="25" border="0"></a></p>

<p class="nav">
<a href="yhteystiedot" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore()" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('yhteystiedot','','<?=$folder?>/yhteystiedot_o.jpg',1)"><img src="<?=$folder?>/yhteystiedot.jpg" name="yhteystiedot" width="120" height="25" border="0"></a></p>

<p class="nav"><img style="border: none; width: 422px; height: 25px;" src="<?=$folder?>/right.jpg" alt="left" /></p>
<br/><br/>

</div>

<div id="bg">
<div class="logo_bg">
<div></div>


<p class="navtop"></p>
<div class="left_box">
<div id="left_bar">
<span style="margin-left: 33px; font-size: 11px;">Ajankohtaista</span>
</div>
<div id="left_sisalto"><span style="color: #ffffff; font-weight: bold;">16.11.2006</span> - Toubes Design sivut saanut uuden ulkoasun, palautetta saa antaa.<p id="hr"></p>

Lis&auml;&auml; uutisia <span class="linkit"><a style="font-size: 11px;" href="index.php?id=content&page=uutisia">t&auml;&auml;ll&auml;.</a></span>
</div>

</div>

<div class="middle_box">

<div id="middle_bar">

<?php

if (isset($_GET['page']) && isset($_GET['id']) && file_exists('pages/'.$_GET[id].'/'.$_GET[page].'.php'))
{
       include 'pages/'.$_GET[id].'/'.$_GET[page].'.php';
}
else

      include 'pages/content/main.php';

?>

</div>
</div>

<div class="left_box_low">

<div style="padding-top: 6px;"></div>

<div class="left_box_low">
<div id="left_bar">

</ul>
</div>

</div>

<div id="footer">
<div id="footer_text">Nallitie 8 D 24 | 00940 Helsinki | 050-4342840 | info@toubesdesign.com </div>
<img id="footer2" src="<?=$folder?>/footer2.jpg"/>

</body>
</html>

i got some good advices from the following page:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/PHP/Q_22066053.html 

So what I have done is that I have replaced all the images url with <?=$folder?> and changing the the templates with the following link: index.php?folder=kesa

But the problem that I'm having is that when a user browses to the main address of the page in this case http://www.toubes-page.net/td/test/ the css file is not activated and the whole page looks very messy.

So is there some way to get the main address to work?

Thanks in advance.

You should make sure that $folder has a default value. Such that when no specific template is chosen $folder always points to your default template directory.

You'd rather have:

$templates = array('syksy', 'template2','template3');

if(isset($_REQUEST['folder']) && in_array($_REQUEST['folder']) {
  $folder = $_REQUEST['folder'];
} else {
  $folder = 'syksy';
}


And then just use <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo $folder;?>/style.css" />

Warning: Wrong parameter count for in_array() in /home/pt4517/public_html/td/test/index.php on line 6

Line 6: if(isset($_REQUEST['folder']) && in_array($_REQUEST['folder']))

Thanks, it works.

Though now I have one more little thing, how do i get the template to stay selected when i change pages in the site.. so that it doesn't reverse back to the default template when a link is clicked?

when I go to the page http://www.toubes-page.net/td/test/index.php?id=content&page=uutisia and i have selected another template than the default one, but it still changes the template to default?

Thanks,
