Waaaay back in 2002 I had made an incredible discovery - code abstraction.
I learned that by intelligently organizing and calling outside files I could eliminate duplicate code on any site I built. This process began when I was using classic ASP and include files.
Include files really changed the way I organized my site files.
Its a win-win situation with one exception:
I guess we need to get some extra file types (like .css, .js) to run through the PHP parser.
Thats pretty easy to do if your site is running on apache.
Just create a file named “.htaccess” in your web root directory and add the following line to it:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .js .css
This should result in minimal server lag - HOPEFULLY
