How to use variables in my PHP website header file.

By chad.klunk ·

I'm trying to use PHP variables so that I can use my header file to display the menu on all my webpages, however, I wanted to be able to change a line of text on each page by setting a variable for the php header to use for each page so for example:

I have my php header file and in it I have a the line

<title>Company Name - <?php $var ?></title>

and on each individual page I have something like:

<?php include "header.php"

$var = "show this line";

does anyone have any ideas why this may not be working? Or any ideas on a different approach to this?

Thanks in advance

"<title>Company - <php? $var></title>"

"<?php include 'header.php
$var = 'show this line in title'; ?>"
