Using a php include with mypage.zip

I really appreicated the mention of the mypage.zip file spoken of in the forums a few days back for quickly and easily adding static html content to my XOOPS site.

I've been using this file to add static html content to my site. In the past I've tried several modules made for this purpose however they all seemed a little overkill for what I wanted to acheive. mypage.zip is perfect!

I'm now facing with a new problem. Using mypage.zip, I'm attempting to 'include' a page from another web site, using a php include statement.

Whilst my static html text appears within the new module I have created, it seems the include statement is ignored.

My code for my module index file is as below...


<?php
include("../../mainfile.php");
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/header.php");
$xoopsOption['show_rblock'] = 1;
include("http://www.site-to-include.com/file.php");
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/footer.php");
?>


Can anyone possibly assist me with showing me where I'm going wrong?

maybe the module does not support php? either it deletes it (check to see if it is in the html code that is generated by xoops) or it just doesn't parse it (which i think is more likely).

was that my mypage.zip from a previous post?

to include the contents of another php file I think you will need to put extra php tags round it i.e.

<?php
include("../../mainfile.php");
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/header.php");
$xoopsOption['show_rblock'] = 1;
?>
<?php

include('http://www.mysite.com/myfile.php');

?>
<?php
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/footer.php");
?>

Your suggestion worked perfectly, thanks JackJ.

LH, you can do the same thing for just about any content you have.

For instance, I commonly use the header and footer includes on all my basic pages and just put whatever I need in between. The only difference then is that the files need to be saved as .php instead of html.

Either way you get the same results, just in a different manner.

<?php
include("../../mainfile.php");
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/header.php");
$xoopsOption['show_rblock'] = 1;
?>


Regular html code and formating.


<?php
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/footer.php");
?>
