Presently a site consists of htm pages. These pages now need to run a PHP script to dynamically create a table of contents. However this means that the site pages have to be converted from htm pages to php pages. The problem with that is the template connectivity is lost in doing so.
I havent coded in JS before and dont know if there are JS equivalents to PHP's fgetcsv(), ImageCopyResampled()...etc functions which are needed to read the contents of a csv file and thunbnail an image.
Would appreciate all suggestions. Thanks.
I'm not sure you can use JS to do the same thing... A problem I can fix at a first sight is that the PHP function fgetcsv() uses a file pointer to access a file resident on the server while JS, being client-side, cannot operate on files on the server...
Good luck, Magma
Right, magma brought up the biggest sticking point: client-side versus server side.
Thanks magma , MJEggertson. I think PHP would be the easier way to go to do what needs to be done for the table of conrents (resize image...etc) . Template connectivity will have to be sacrificed for this.
Guess only other way is to generate the ENTIRE page using php, includung the standard sitewide elemsnts. Thus the php script that does such generating would be the 'template' so to speak and there will be only one script. Any alterations would be site wide if done on this script.
Unless there is ANY other was of doing a site with php and maintianing the templates?????
