    IS PHP my best choice?

    I currently have a site that I built for a client and it's strictly html/css. Every page of this site has an identical top menu and menu in the footer. What I'd like to do is create a single menu.htm & menulower.htm, or whatever file type, that would be called in each page instead of what I'm doing now which is editing close to 50 pages for a single menu change.

    Is PHP a good choice for this?

    Either php or shtml.

    I'd go shtml.

    It requires less processor power.

    what you can also do with PHP is have it generate standard HTML pages for you.. this will then incur no extra processing overhead on the web server used to dish out your content.

    Basically, you provide a template and have PHP generate content dynamically, typically from a database, then write it all out to standard HTML files.

    I used this method to generate a largish shopping site which had to be run from a server which didn't support PHP or any form of database. I used PHP 4 and MySQL (almost a classic combination!) - it all worked very nicely. There are a number of good books on this subject, as well as plenty of tutorials on the web if you google around. You'll certainly want some printed reference material to get the best out of what PHP has to offer - it's great!

    I have PHP running on my website at the moment, and the potential for it is just amazing! With a bit of time on your hands, and a bit of knowledge on PHP, you could make a site a fantastic, community based site. Best of all... it's open source and can be modified to your likings! Oh, and it really puts Microshit's ASP.NET crap! :w00t:
