PHP vs. HTML
« on: October 12, 2014, 04:45:41 PM »
For you gurus out there. HELP!

This is my file:

    <tr>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">Replaced with current wind direction dial.<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;"><img src="WCFILES/DWINDD$" alt="">
      </td>
    </tr>

If I name it *.php, this is the result:

    <tr>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">Replaced with current wind direction dial.<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;"><img src="WCFILES/winddirection.jpg" alt="">
      </td>
    </tr>

If I name the file *.html, I get this:

    <tr>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">Replaced with current wind direction dial.<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;">DWINDD&#36;<br>
      </td>
      <td style="vertical-align: top;"><img src="WCFILES/<img src="winddirection.jpg" alt="Wind direction gauge"/>" alt="">
      </td>
    </tr>

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Images are expected to be in HTML directory. (Re: PHP vs. HTML)

Dear TechnoMonkey and WeatherCat web spinners,

I just checked my own website and indeed it is expected that you will allow WeatherCat to generate the <img .  .> tag and that the images are supposed to be in the same directory as the HTML.  I don't think there is a way to put them into a subdirectory.  If you want to ask Stu about it you'll have to wait until he gets back from his holiday on Tuesday.

Cheers, Edouard

Correct, the tags will expect the images to be in the same directory as the page.
