Just getting into Smarty/PHP - - I have worked with template based sites before. I'm trying to see how people are calling pages from links.

I used to do this. I would include a page that contained all of the navigation logic from within the main template

the link <...index.php?page=about would call the about page. (Is this called one page?)

This would end up beoing a giant IF statement.
if page=about
include (/files/about.php")
elseif....

Does anyone do this? Any suggested best practices...

I used fusebox for cold fusion which accompishes this and more.

Thanks

i using something like this:

[php:1:f4a7099f32]
if ( $smarty->template_exists( $_GET['page']) {
$smarty->display( $_GET['page']);
} else {
$smarty->assign( "error", "No such Template!");
$smarty->display( "error.tpl");
}
[/php:1:f4a7099f32]

Thanks,

What does your file structure look like? Where does this if statement sit and how/where does it get called

I would be careful using this code as it could be used to read arbitrary files on the server. For example: http://myserver/index.php?page=/etc/passwd
