Default Chapter 3 - PHP


Id been planning on using the menu system in chapter 3 for my website and created the menu and css. It works fine until i add my php code to the page. The php code is inserted in the document like this

//php code

as soon i place even one line of code in the page, the menu stops working. The page loads but is not clickable.

im aware that it has something to do with text before the <html>tag but i thought as it only contained functions and sessions settings and not any actual output, it would work.

Ive also tried it by doing
//code here
?><html ....

but this doesn't work either.

can anyone offer me any advice or will it just not work with php. it just seems unusual and ive been trying for days.

It won't matter if your php code is above the html (it should be).

Is this a php page (does the page name end in .php)?

thanks for the reply. what u said is exactly what i thought that it wouldn't matter as everything in the <?php ?> wouldnt be sent to browser but if i create my page and load it. The menu works fine, and it even works fine if i do <?php ?> and leave it empty between the brackets. as soon as i add php code though the menu stops working.

Yes the page is a php page. Is that the problem?

any help would be appreciated, i really want to use that menu in my website
