Contribute and PHP with includes - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

    Default Contribute and PHP with includes

    I saw one post on this subject, speaking of relative paths with no answer about
    relative paths. But I have a different question.

    Can I have a PHP site with navigation that uses a PHP include and have that
    include also editable? I know I could create this in dreamweaver, and currently
    use the tedious method of dreamweaver templates and a library item for the
    navigation. However, this requires downloading the entire site to change out
    the navigation. I have a customer that loves the ease of Contribute but is
    forever wanting something in the navigation changed (prices) and I would like
    for them to be able to do this themselves by making editable regions in a php
    include file and letting them change it, rather than me downloading their
    entire site and doing it for them.

    So is this possible? I haven't seen anything about editing include files.

    Yes, it is possible. You can't edit it AS an include though. The distinction
    is that they could edit the file as if it were a normal doent, outside of
    being actually included in a file.

    Example.php includes nav.inc, so you would edit the file nav.inc with
    Contribute.
