    Is it possible to use PHP includes within the header template?

    I want to use this code to generate a random quote:

    PHP Code:
    But it's not working for me. Is there a problem with putting includes within a template? Is there a way round it?

    Please see these instructions for including PHP, TXT or HTML in a template:

      I have this working now (following the instructions) but I can't work out how to set up a second include.

      It says "If you wish to include() multiple PHP files, make sure you use ob_clean() before each include() to reset the buffer" - so I guess I can set up a second file.

      How do I do that though?

      If $includedphp includes the first PHP file - what would I use to insert the second file?
