I read the following:

it really is incredibly bad style to mix code and html though... if you are going to put html out in the middle of a load of code, you should prepare the html then print it.


If it works, though, is it actually a problem?

I work with PHP and HTML everyday and there is no problem mixing them up, in fact it works that way by design (otherwise PHP files would only contain PHP and would not parse with HTML in them).

 

It's tidier to break them apart where possible. It's easier not to from a coding point of view.

 

I am all for PHP questions - in my opinion an amazing server-side language that is highly under-rated by many Windows (ASP) programmers.

First of all Elton the bit about mixing php and html is just complete b0ll0cks!

 

You could if you wanted to, name all the web page type files on your site *.php and everything should still work, albeit with a small performance hit because the php module would have to parse every page.

 

Get into the habit of indenting you code properly. When I was an 'apprentice programmer' this was drummed into us. It makes your code easier to read, especially if someone other than the original author has to edit it, or you have to go and edit it yourself 9 months down the track.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Cheers, guys.

 

The thing I had to do hasn't bust yet, so it must be okay :)

PM me any PHP questions anytime!

 

Cory! Better to be neat where possible. I've worked in very hectic environments though where I've been guilty of not doing it and had plenty shoved my way where people clearly haven't done it!!!

 

A lot of readily available PHP scripts are also badly organised/indented - probably by design though to stop people tampering....
