I will start this thread with a problem that I am trying to solve. I have searched for a solution, and can't find one, and daniweb.com users have been a great help in the past. This is a tricky one for me.. I hope we can find a solution.
All of these problems relate to www.hyperoctave.org (if you need to have a look)
Is it possible to embed a PHPBB forum into my website using the <include> tag?
I have tried this, but I get errors. this code is in index.php (for example)
<head> <?php $page= $_GET["page"]; //get the variable from the URL $subcode = file_get_contents($page); //load the file into a variable ?> </head> Then at content location: <div id="sub_content"><?php echo($subcode) ?> </div>
So, then I would change the url to index.php?page=forum/index.php
*hoping* that the forum would appear in the sub_content div, but instead - a whole page of code appears, eventually crashing with the message
The requested URL /.append_sid( was not found on this server.
So, currently, I am using the <iframe> tag to embed my forum, which is fine, but if anyone has a solution to this problem, that would be great!
is there a way to use this.href to control what an <iframe> is showing?
Since google and other search engines are linking directly to my forum, if people open the links, they will go to the forum without the rest of the website around it! So, here is my plan.. (that I need assistance with..)
If the user goes to the forum index, I have included the code
This will open up the index page with the forum in the <iframe>
Simple! But.. this only works for the forum index.. If someone is linked to an actual forum thread, and I want the link to open the thread with the index page around it, I need some more specific code.. any ideas so far?
