[nycphp-talk] php include file question

I know that you can include any kind of file in PHP and it will be parsed so
long as there are <? ?> inside with executable PHP code. This is not the
same thing as apache dealing with the file. Because apache wont send .html
files to PHP (unless you've configured your apache to work that way).

Don't know about anyone else, I'm still new to this, but I name the html
files ".php" and then for the include statement I use "include
'copyright.php';"  That is the only thing that worked for me.  You won't
have to change anything in the current .html file other than the extension.
