Inserting external HTML/CGI in WordPress Page (4 posts)

    I've been searching for this all night, maybe I'm not finding a solution because I don't know exactly what I am looking for.

    I am trying have a WordPress page that includes the body of an external html that is generated by a CGI program (SFESurvey http://www.tesol.net/scripts/SFESurvey/). I know how to do this with Server Side Includes, and can call it with PHP on a non-wp webpage. I also could do it with an iFrame (at least with a traditional HTML page) but that isn't very pleasant. Can anyone point me to a plugin or a solution of some kind to allow me to do this. WP keeps stripping my code fragments, so I assume I need a plugin... but what?

    Forgive me if this is a completely ignorant question. I'm new to wp, and this one part is really kicking my butt.

    Thanks for your time.

    When you you want to make a WP page - you mean a Page, like described here:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages ?
    If yes, think it this way: maybe it is better to create a Page template with all the code you want in it and then create a new Page using that template.

    On wordpress 1.5, I had linked to my flickr photo feed, and now after upgrading to 2.0, I'm finding that the feed no longer works. I had originally inserted the html code supplied by flickr and it worked fine until the upgrade. It seems that in 2.0, a major change has been made in how images are linked as the <img src> method I had always used doesnt work any more and I had to use the 'blog this' feature on flickr. Is it possible for me to re-enable this photo feed?

    this is all that appears on the page now:

    code used:
    <!-- Start of Flickr Badge --> <style> .zg_div {margin:0px 5px 5px 0px; width:117px;} .zg_div_inner { color:#666666; text-align:center; font-family:arial, helvetica; font-size:11px;} .zg_div a, .zg_div a:hover, .zg_div a:visited {color:#3993ff; background:inherit !important; text-decoration:none !important;}</style><script type="text/javascript"> zg_insert_badge = function() { var zg_bg_color = 'ffffff'; var zgi_url = 'http://www.flickr.com/apps/badge/badge_iframe.gne?zg_bg_color='+zg_bg_color+'&amp;amp;amp;zg_person_id=59372405%40N00'; document.write('<iframe style="background-color:#'+zg_bg_color+'; border-color:#'+zg_bg_color+'; border:none;" width="113" height="151" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="'+zgi_url+'" mce_src="'+zgi_url+'" title="Flickr Badge"></iframe>'); if (document.getElementById) document.write('
    <div id="zg_whatlink">what is this?< \/a>< \/div>'); } zg_toggleWhat = function() { document.getElementById('zg_whatdiv').style.display = (document.getElementById('zg_whatdiv').style.display != 'none') ? 'none' : 'block'; document.getElementById('zg_whatlink').style.display = (document.getElementById('zg_whatdiv').style.display != 'none') ? 'none' : 'block'; return false; } </div>
    <div class="zg_div">
    <div class="zg_div_inner">http://www.<strong style="color: #3993ff">flick<span style="color: #ff1c92">r</span>.com
    <script type="text/javascript">zg_insert_badge();</script>

    <div id="zg_whatdiv">This is a Flickr badge showing public photos from interactive_bot. Make your own badge here.</div>
    <script type="text/javascript">if (document.getElementById) document.getElementById('zg_whatdiv').style.display = 'none';</script>

    <!-- End of Flickr Badge -->

    Thank you Moshu. I will try that and see if it works. Yes, I am referring to a "Page" created in the WordPress program.
