View Full Version : php include in a template file

09-17-2005, 02:26 PM
I want to insert a php include inside my template file, however, like most servers, my server will not employ that function since it could only work with the files with a .php extention.

Is there a way around this?

If not, what can be an alternative to insert an include function in a template?

You could use .htaccess to make it so that files with that extension is treated like a php file.

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .ext
Just change .ext to the extension.

You should first check that your server dont mind you doing this.. While they *shouldnt* have any problem with it, I have heard of accounts being de-activated due to people setting up things in .htaccess that the server didnt want to allow (SSI for example). Besides, it cant hurt asking and if theyre anything of a decent host they will say yes :)

You could change the extension of the template file to .php
