Include external HTML file in TEXT_MAIN


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to add a (e-mail list) form to my text_main filed, but it won't work.


Alternative 1:

To add a file called form.html with some kind of php include.

Tried to add <?php include("menu.inc"); ?> between my <td> and </td> in text_main, but the html file never got included. No error msgs.


Alternative 2:

To add the HTML code to text_main field. This returns an error (se code below).


My text main code in index.php:


define('TEXT_MAIN', '
<table width="465" border="0">
   <td class="main">

 I have tried to add it here, but then it outputs "TEXT_MAIN"



Form to add:


<form name="txtlist" action="./index.php" target="txtlist" method="get" onSubmit="JavaScript:window.open('','txtlist','width=300,height=150,toolbar=no,status=no,resizable=no')">
<table border="0" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#efefef" style="border: #dedede 3px double;">
<input type="hidden" name="type" value="sub">
<input type="text" name="email" value="email address" size="20" maxlength="100" onFocus="if (this.value=='email address') this.value=''" onBlur="if (this.value=='') this.value='email address'">
<input type="submit" name="sub" value="subscribe">


I tried putting a \ in front of all ' -but that didn't work.


Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Place your html file in the root level. Then make this change to your root level php file:


<td class="main"><?php include ('newpage.html'); ?></td>


Don't forget to remove the call to the file at the 'languages' level, in the head section of your root level php file e.g.


require(DIR_WS_LANGUAGES . $language . '/' . FILENAME_DEFAULT);

if you need some thing more flexible, this contribution has examples and explains how to include html as well as create popup windows in a multi-language setup:



I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!


Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt
