    Hi. I've got PHP Problem. I'm designing a new site that requires categories. (ie Canvas, acrylic, oil, etc). I'm using PHP include to throw all the PHP & HTML together it was looking really good until I came across this problem.

    I know it would probably have to do with 'isset' and things, but like me and languages (whether it be computer or country), I can understand fragments but not the whole picture.

    I think what I am looking for is something like:

    if (isset (canvas))

    {<<DATABASE CONNECTION STUFF>> WHERE pictype = canvas";
    }

    if (isset (acryllic))

    {<<DATABASE CONNECTION STUFF>> WHERE pictype = acryllic";
    }

    etc.

    Is that correct, can someone point me in the right direction!??! Is this the end of Wenslock's adventures??!??! TUNE IN NEXT TIME FOLKS TO FIND OUT!

    I think you'll probably need to load only one category at a time.
    So you can use the SWITCH construct or IF..ELSE IF..ELSE construct.

    Example (Switch):
    PHP:
    switch($category)
       {
         case 
    'canvas':
             include(
    'canvas.inc.php');
             break;
         case 
    'acrylic':
             include(
    'acrylic.inc.php');
             break;
       }
