Hi, I am trying to dynamically select which blurb to include on the page according to which link was clicked.

include 'header.php';
$blurb = blurbs();
var_dump($blurb);
include $blurb;
include 'footer.php';

Open in new window


But its not working even though 1blurb.php is a an active page:  http://gowiththemaster.com/tleithoff/1blurb.php

http://gowiththemaster.com/tleithoff/about.php?menu=1&type=1blurb

Anyone know how to do this?

// Determines which blurb should be included
function blurbs() {
	if(isset($_GET['type'])) {
		$blurb = $_GET['type'];
		$blurb = "'" . $blurb . ".php'";
		return $blurb;
	}
}
