I'm getting extra white space, that is not CSS, or nothing like it on the view output: The HTML.

I've checked for ?> (removed, where I could), saved UTF8 without BOM. Checked for existent white space in the beginning of each file, even at end.

This is the structure:

index.php - this is the entry point; MODEL/ CONTROLLER/ VIEW/

Let's say, that trough method GET, its sent the var TPL with some value. Let's call it LIST, so it pulls the LIST model, with all data and then show the right template to the user, with the right data.

I used and tested, with require_once, include_once, include, even tested with readfile (just to test). The LIST Template opens the header.tpl and footer.tpl; I also tryed to remove this both includes from LIST template, but still, the extra white space continued.

This is where the extra white space is coming from. This controller is placed between controller activity runs here , this is where the extra white space is coming from:


$rows = $model_works->rows;

if ( !require_once('views/list_works.tpl.php') ) {

echo "



} // end if clause

The list_works.tpl.php, is basicly HTML with tags; I've t tested by changing the extension to something else, like html.

Also, just to remember that at top of this file, we are using require_once to open the header.tpl and at bottom the footer.tpl. I've tested by removing both and the extra white space was still generated.

The extra white space is being generated here:


Thanks a lot for looking, ;D
