Using header and footer global includes


Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem wrapping the cart within the overall look of my site. I can cut and paste the code of my header and footer files but would much rather call an include at the appropriate places in the cart. That way, if a future global change is made, I won't have to tinker with the cart files.


Problem is that I get an error when using either include or require_once and putting the filename in there. The page returns an error saying:


Warning: main(/includes/breadcrumb.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/local/apache/sites/website.com/beta/store/includes/header.php on line 167


Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening '/includes/breadcrumb.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /usr/local/apache/sites/website.com/beta/store/includes/header.php on line 167


As I said, I'd prefer not to put the whole chunk of code in the cart's header and footer files. If I could just have a simple include for the whole site's header and footer, that would be my preference.


Any ideas how to do this?

I got it to work by adding the entire path to the header and footer files. That way, I only have to update the two files at the site root for the entire site to change instead of duplicating changes for the site and then the cart separately.
