[nycphp-talk] php include file question

Just to clarify, and I think this is what Louie was talking about...

Are you using the php include call on an html page?  Or do you have a page
(whatever.php) from which you are calling .html files as includes?  If this
is the case, and your main page is a .html page, then you cannot use <?php
include () ?> on it unless your server is specifically set up to parse .html
files as if they were php.  Dig?  So when he's talking about changing .html
to .php, he's talking about the main page, not the pages you are calling
from that page.  If this is your situation, you need to tell your web admin
to set up the webserver to parse .html files as if they were .php.

Hope I'm getting the problem right.  It's all a bit confusing.

Luck,
Tim
