Editing already-made .htm pages (2 posts)

    I have several .htm pages already up and running on my server, but I need to get them into WordPress to edit them, specifically to add reCAPTCHA to a few forms via the plugin tool. I've tried doing this just from within the code, but the .php for the verification doesn't work well with the .pl that already dictates the behavior of the form.

    I have spent many hours trying to figure out how to get these already-made pages into WordPress so that I can do this, but can't seem to get it for the life of me. Any help here would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can't really just move an .htm(l) file into WordPress. It isn't that simple.

    You can include WordPress in external files, but I think it is ultimately (and keeps the site consistent) easier to create a Page Template.

    You have an additional problem. That .pl is Perl. WordPress is PHP. Those are quite different languages. That could be tricky, though I am sure it isn't impossible. I have no idea how to get you started without seeing the context-- aka., the site and the code. Paste your code to the pastebin, please. I'll take a look. However, this may be a bigger project than can be done remotely or for free. You may need to avail yourself of the "WP Jobs" link at the bottom of the page. Do not try to hire someone via this forum. The thread will be shut down if you do.

    I don't really know what you mean by "via the plugin tool"?
