This is in my index.php
<? include("body.php"); body("home"); ?>

As you can see its calling a function called "body" from a file called body.php
This is the body.php...
<? function body($pageaddress){
?>
     <? include("\"" ?> <? .$pageaddress. ?> <? .php"\""); ?>
<? } ?>

Can anyone point out where i've gone wrong? I'm very new to php programming.

<?php
 

	function body($pageaddress) {

	

		include("\\" . $pageadress . ".php");

	

	}

	

?>

Hi Alan,

Try this instead of your current body function:

<?php function body($pageaddress){
      
      include("\.".$pageaddress.".php");
}
?>

unless you want the slashes, but in a url slashes go the other way.
and if you have a slash at the beginning of your address it symbolizes the root of the website

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

sorry should make things a little clearer...
the function would actually look more like this...

<? function body($pageaddress){
?>
<table>
   <tr>
      <td>
         <? include("\"" ?> <? .$pageaddress. ?> <? .php"\""); ?>
      </td>
   </tr>
</table>
<? } ?>

add this just to see if the variable is being passed
<?php

function body($pageaddress){

 echo $pageaddress;

 $html .= "<table>";

 $html .= "<tr>";

 $html .= "<td>";

 include("/".$pageaddress.".php");

 $html .= "</td>";

 $html .= "</tr>";

 $html .= "</table>";

 return $html;

}

?>

That will not work as expected because include will execute as soon as it is called you need something a bit more complex.
function body($pageaddress){

 ob_start();

 include($pageaddress.".php");

 $inc = ob_get_contents();

 ob_end_clean();

 $html .= "<table>";

 $html .= "<tr>";

 $html .= "<td>";

 $html .= $inc;

 $html .= "</td>";

 $html .= "</tr>";

 $html .= "</table>";

 return $html;

}
