?php include ?>?

Post by Gilead » Tue Feb 12, 2019 8:42 pm

I was trying to do a php include in one of the articles, from the toggle off mode, only it made it a comment instead. Is there a way to display another page inside an article without using iframe?

There are several plugins on the JED that allow insertion of such code, but also make sure your text filtering is not barring such code / tags.

Sourcerer from Regluar Labs might help: https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/sourcerer/.

I don't know what sort of page you're trying to insert but the 'include' tag in PHP is generally used to include one script into another for the purpose of programming, not for necessarily displaying another page directly; I think the iframe would be the way to go if it's just an external website that you want displayed in your site e.g. a wikipedia page displayed directly in your site. But it's hit or miss with iframes, especially if the target site bars inclusion by iframe by third-parties.

There is the HTML include tag (not to be confused with the PHP include): https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_html_include.asp as opposed to PHP include: https://www.w3schools.com/php/php_includes.asp

Parsec is a measure of distance not velocity.
Thanks A Murray!
