PHP menu and tags replacer

filed under: @ 17:46:30

I have published the PHP code of my menu. The idea behind it was to have a menu that can be updated from a single file otherwise every change would mean re-pulish the whole site. The file can be used only on PHP pages, I still have some static XHTML ones and those I have to manually update and re-publish but it's a small percentage. The code could be streamlined since I repeat the same process four times but that's due to the fact that I want the menu to look the way it does and I don't know another way to float the links like that except coding each category in its own unordered list.

I also published a page that enables a user to paste a piece of code and get all the “<” and “>” symbols replaced by entities (&lt; and &gt;) so that it then becomes readable and can be published since the browser does not try to interpret it as active code. I find it useful and it definitely saves a lot of time.
