Background: I'm not a programmer; I know just enough about PHP to be dangerous. With that said, I'm trying to develop a custom registration screen plug-in -- so I can theme it without modifying the core WP code.
I've got the basics figured out - it's using my modified CSS, my own images, and my text, so that's all good. However, what I'd *really* like to do is have the reg form show up with my site's usual header, sidebar (widgetized), and footer.
I've dug through the hooks and filters stuff, and I know about get_header and get_footer, but I just can't seem to make this work.
Is it possible? Am I missing something obvious?
