PHP in header and/or footer

hello,

would it be possible to have header.html and footer.html as header.php and footer.php instead? This way I can get includes to work.

Ciao,

Loz

if you added a call to your other code in bb_plugins.php - then had your other code output to $mycontent, you could add {$mycontent} to main_header.html and main_footer.html. it'd be included along with everything else.

Read these threads for more:

what do you need to include?

anyway - here's an example. add this to bb_plugins.php:

$mycontenttop = 'appears in the header';
$mycontentbottom = 'appears in the footer';

now add this to the end of templates/main_header.html (or anywhere you like):

{$mycontenttop}

and add this to the end (or anywhere you like) of main_footer.html

{$mycontentbottom}

now, when you visit your site - it'll say 'appears in the header' somewhere near the top of the page and 'appears in the footer' somewhere near the bottom.

you could use an include instead (which is what bb_plugins.php is for) and add whatever custom dynamic content you like to the header and footer.

hi again...

I did this and it works. problem is that what I want to include... is an include:

<?php $path = "";
include("../sondaggio/poll.php");
?>

but it will not work as footer file is .html (i think).

any ideas,

Loz

This is what I want to do - include /files/topheader.html in main_header.html

You need to read contents of this file into variable (for example, from bb_plugins.php) and then simply to include this variable in main_header.html

For example:

$my_variable='Content Content Content Content etc.';

Then paste {$my_variable} into main_header.html... $my_variable can have any content you want, of course.

I think I got my head around this in the end, and I forgot to say, this is for my CMS, which uses miniBB for the forum modual, currently in alpha (should be in beta by the end of today).

Use ob_start/ob_end directives to achieve that, and still, read output to the variable which you may paste later.

ob_start();
include("../sondaggio/poll.php");
$flushed=ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();
