  • Can we use Server Side Includes with vBulletin?

    We are considering buying a license for vbulletin but would like to insinuate it into our current navigation scheme which uses include statements. Is that going to be a problem? Anyone else using vbulletin and server side includes? Thanks!

    you can use the php equivalent of php includes in your forum...

    so it's possible to include your site's navigation into your forum

      Follow Up Question

      Eva, thanks so much for the prompt response.

      Second question: What do you mean use the PHP equivalent? I'm not at all familiar with PHP, only shtml.

      Let me be specific and then maybe you can tell me if this will work.

      Our index page ends with .shtml. All our pages end in .shtml.

      We can call .html pages but are you saying I would have to call a .php page to use the bulletin board? We had UBB and that was calling .cgi pages.

      Thanks!

        okay tradition SSI as you know it calling

        filename.shtml in page.shtml
        Code:
        <!--#include virtual="/path/to/filename.shtml" -->
        php equivalent

        filename.shtml in page.php
        Code:
        <?php
        include ("/path/to/filename.shtml");
        ?>
