Answer

use php include and require they are used to include and load snippets of codes in any section of your html page, in your case just put your navbar code into a seperate php file and then include it at the top of any page you want to have it

<?php include('navbar.php') ?>
//rest of your page

include means that the page will still load if for some reason the navbar.php file dosen't load

But if you want the page not to load without loading the navbar, then use require. this will be ideal if you make a database connection in your navbar file (ideally you shouldn't do that though). but it's just there if you require some assets or file to load completely before loading the main page

<?php require('navbar.php') ?>
