    Oh, I see the problem… I need to specify that the default index page uses home.php

    # March 19, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    Ok, so my default page is ‘home’, so how would this be written? The above code you gave didn’t change anything.

    When going directly to http://rpotterjr.dev I get errors. If I go to http://rpotterjr.dev/home I no longer have any errors. Any suggestions?

    It seems that I need to set the default page within the navigation, which should be ‘home’. Anyone know how to achieve this?

    It is saying ‘Unidentified Index Page…” It’s saying that there is no identified index page in navigation.php?

    Add `$page = isset($_GET) ? $_GET : ‘home’;` (if you haven’t declared `$page` somewhere else already) before the list and replace all the `$_GET` with `$page` inside the list.

    Thanks again man, you definitely rock! Thanks goes out to BenWalker also, for contributing to solving this issue.

    One more thing, in your switch you default to your home page. I would default to a 404 error page like this:

    $page = isset($_GET) ? $_GET : ‘home’;

    // include header and menu here (so they have access to $page)

    switch ($page) {
    case ‘home’:
    include(‘mydir/home.php’);
    break;
    case ‘about’:
    include(‘mydir/about.php’);
    break;
    case ‘contact’:
    include(‘mydir/contact.php’);
    break;
    default:
    include(‘mydir/404.php’);
    break;
    }

    // include footer here

    Yeah, I plan to do that before completion of the website. I have a 404 template that I use for all of my websites that I usually impliment before I put the site live. Thanks for everything!

    Actually, I went ahead and changed that, but for some reason it'[s not working like it should. When I go to just http://rpotterjr.dev it displays the 404 page instead of the home page… Wth? I never had this problem with that…

    Weird, can you show me your full index.php file?

    # March 20, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    The index.php file contains nothing but an include to the header, content, and footer…

    # March 20, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    where the content is simply the case/switch that handles the page display…

    # March 20, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    Without the mod_rewrite it displays the 404 page only when going to a wrong link, but with it, the 404 becomes the default…
