Non WordPress controlled page... (5 posts)

    I did a search but could not find specifics. I want to create a contact form page, a separate .php page that handles form input for contact purposes. I would like the page to be able to access WP functionality. The page will use the WP header, footer, etc. How can I do this?
    I tried creating a WP page, but that did not seem to work.

    Thanks...

    Hey,

    A WP page *should* work, but if you want to create a completely seperate page (writing the PHP yourself) that lives outside WP but accesses WPs functionality then there's a good thread here.

    Before creating your own, what was the problem that you had with pages? It's probably easier to remedy that (plus you can update using the admin area) than to create your own page from scratch.

    if you were trying to include php on a page, look at the codex on page templates or try looking at the runphp plugin...
