I have my wordpress blog installed on domain.co.uk/blog. I need to access some functions in domain.co.uk/functions/filename.php in my sidebar.php file.
However if I <?php include('domain.co.uk/functions/filename.php')?> all it does is write the code in the included file to the page as text.
Is it possible to include an external php file in sidebar.php? if so how/where do I do it?
Thanks and sorry if this is a daft question as this is my first wordpress site. I found this post http://www.tomcatuk.net/how-to-use-a-php-include-with-wordpress/ but it didn't work either
