CodeIgniter and PHP - El Forum - 06-18-2010

Hello
I am exploring CI and PHP and wondering if I could include PHP code snippets in <head> tag of HTML code...

for example, I have the following code in <head>.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
&lt;html &gt;
&lt;head&gt;
&lt;?php echo base_url(); ?&gt;
&lt;/head&gt;

&lt;body&gt;
<ul>
<li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
</ul>
&lt;/body&gt;

Any thoughts as to why I would not get any results. My page is blank.

You have to load the URL helper in order to use it's functions.

Hi
I already have the following stmt in my autoload.php



$autoload['helper'] = array('url');


Should I have something more added in addition to this?

Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”>
&lt;html &gt; wrong you have a space here

it should be this
&lt;html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"&gt;

&lt;head&gt;
&lt;?php echo base_url(); ?&gt; this will only showup in source view not on screen
&lt;/head&gt;

&lt;body&gt;
<ul>
<li>Home</li>
</ul>
&lt;/body&gt;
no ending &lt;/html&gt; tag

Also this I hope you are displaying in a view file.
