I am very new to PHP and was wondering which is the best way to set my PHP tags?
<?php //code ?>
<? //code ?>
Dreamweaver lets me do both ...
best practice is use the full php tag "<?php ?>" the other is a shortcut and is not the most supported habit to have. But does work well with HTML and templating.
Thanks Buddy ... that is what I thought, but just wanted to make sure.
But I have to ask how to you know when to use a 'shortcut'?
That really is completely up to you. I tend to try and base it off if it will help me more quickly, Is it easier to understand, Is it easier to write, Is it considered in good practice.
