I'm developing an ecommerce site that using a top menu bar for 'home, our stores, contact etc' and a side menu bar for departments - shoes, bags etc. I've put both nav menus into include files.
Firstly can someone tell me what I need to put in front of my links to make them absolute (ie. accessible from pages within subfolders).
Secondly when the user gets to the check out page they are then transferred onto the secure server. If they then choose to continue shopping they need to go back to the original server in order for the cart details to still be there. On a previous site I made the links completely absolute ie, http://www.mysite.co.uk/shoes.php
, which got me a round this problem, but is a pain when I'm editing on my testing server. Any suggestions ?
