ok, this may be a very basic question, i am a newbie to wordpress and php and all. i am trying to convert my website to use wordpress. currently every page has a server side include (or 2 or 3 or 4) which calls some perl code i wrote to query a database and generate some html.
of course when i try to use the SSI in a post to convert over to WordPress, it is not evaluated. now, ideally i would like to know if i can use my perl code still somehow, but it seems i may have to do some php magic to get the data now. yet when i try to put a database connect in there it also is not evaluated. browsing the forum i see info on Db operations in the main page or within the defined areas but not for within posts.
thanks for any help!
