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.

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

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

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>
<? } ?>

do this

<?php
function body($pageaddress){
 $html .= "<table>";
 $html .= "<tr>";
 $html .= "<td>";
 include("/".$pageaddress.".php");
 $html .= "</td>";
 $html .= "</tr>";
 $html .= "</table>";
 return $html;
}
?>
 
 
then to use it
 
echo body("home");

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;
}
