you don't understand it well enough.

Major topics covered in this class:

  • Server-Side Page Includes
  • Creating a Header for the Entire Site
  • Accessing Files & Folders
  • Reading Text Files

In this class, we begin by learning about Server-Side Page Includes. This allows us to include one page inside of another. We can use it to create a custom header and footer for our web site (and perhaps a links bar, banner ad sections, etc.) that will be on every page of our site. You can also use it to include functions or subroutines in multiple pages without having to copy and paste them.

Next, we'll learn how to work with Files & Folders on the server. We'll learn how to see if a file or folder exists, how to access the file's properties such as the date it was last modified or it's size. Then, we'll learn how to loop through all of the files and subfolders in a folder.

Finally, we'll learn how to read data in from text files on the server. This can be very useful to create things such as a username/password list for logons, product lists, customer data, etc. if you don't want to go through the trouble of setting up a database. If data doesn't change that often, a text file is often good enough.

Understanding text files is a good first step to eventually working with databases. For those times when you don't want to set up an entire database to do something simple (like provide a username/password logon) text files work just great. You can also use text files for things like creating a custom server log, invoice, etc. Don't miss this class.
