Hi, I created a function that would only try to include a file if 'type' was in the url:

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

Open in new window

but its still trying to include it!!  It should not get past the if statement!?!

anyone know whats going on?
