does <?php echo html ; ?> slow my site

Hi experts,

In a file called config.php  I have this variable:
$path_to_pics = 'can/forum/picture';

And in the rest of the site I replaced every picture:
<img src='can/forum/picture/rtl.gif' />
With :
<img src='<?php echo $path_to_pics ?>/rtl.gif' />

Is this going to affect the speed of my site or the use of the server?
If yes, what is the best way to deal with this?


Regards,

It will hardly effect things. Maybe a few milliseconds here and there, but it shouldn't be noticeable unless your server is unusually slow.

Should not, I use this myself, and with/without the path appending with the PHP, I do not notice any loading time differences (tried testing it once or twice, and no time differences).

By the way, it will do you more good than bad anyway because if you ever changed a directory, you just need to change one variable.

Not by any noticeable amount.  Check out free php websites like drupal, phpbb or joomla - there are a hundred times more complex and has many more $references!

What imitchie said is quite true. Think of forums software such as IPB. They have thousands of lines of PHP code just like yours, and it takes under a second.
