New on the AskAboutPHP.com blog, this tutorial concerning CodeIgniter view organization has been posted:
Trying my hands at using CodeIgniter, one of the first obstacles I had was how to organize my 'blocks' on a page. Without knowing any better, I thought I had to reiterate the same view calls in every function within the controller, making the controller codes very messy. It turns out that CodeIgniter allows us to nest views within views, and that has made things a lot simpler for me.
Instead of loading and calling the view() method over and other in his actions, he chooses to make a "template" view with each of the other calls to view() contained inside. Then you just pass in the data you want the view to render and call that template view. This also allows you to easily create a site-wide template.
