What's the address for the web page where the SSIs are not showing in your browser?
Thanks for talking a look. Here is a link :http://tinyurl.com/SSIproblem
When you make the screen smaller than 780px or so, a tab appears at the top center. If you click on the tap, it slides down, and in there is supposed to be lots of content.
The example linked to here has slightly different HTML in the topPanel DIV than in my original question, only because i created example html for the sake of the question. The actual html in the topPanel div that you see on the linked page here is:
<div id="topSlide" tabindex="1">
<p>li grammatica del resultant lingue es plu simplic e regulari quam ti del cleslingues. It va esser tam simpic quam Occidental: in fact, it va esser Occidental. A un Angleso it v</p>
<?php require_once('includes/include-address.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('includes/include-social.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('includes/include-hours.php'); ?>
<?php require_once('includes/include-reserve.php'); ?>
It seems like the issue is that it's not possible to use the same SSI twice on the same page. I was using the same SSI in mty left side bar and in my top panel.
Some solid confirmation that this is in fact the case would be welcome.
What a dissapointment if so
It seems like the issue is that it's not possible to use the same SSI twice on the same page.
It's certainly possible depending on the PHP command which you use as the include directive.
<?php require_once('includes/include-address.php'); ?> will only include the file once
<?php require('includes/include-address.php'); ?> will include the file more than once
<?php include('includes/include-address.php'); ?> will include the file more than once
Each has its own rules and quirks.
Aha! Thank so much John. This is great. I will investgate further.
(in my example, i concluded i should better serve separate css to display the sidePanel differently (i.e. as if it were the current topPanel) under given conditions/screen widths. So I'm working on figuring out a zillion things at once
Thanks so much for chiming in, this was very helpful and clearly obvious to those in the know
