A common requirement when designing a site is the ability to update the layout and HTML of the site without having to change the look and feel of every page on your web site. Template based web sites allow you to produce dynamic web content and give your visitors the appearance that each page on your site is different. Another advantage of a template based web site is that PHP and HTML code can be kept entirely separate, making for far more logical HTML and PHP coding. There are a number of ways to do this, and this tutorial covers just one method with 2 storage options: templates in a database and templates in a directory.

To test the templates in this article you should have PHP and MySQL installed on either a Windows or Linux server. You should also have an intermediate knowledge of PHP and MySQL, including how to create tables, etc.
