Problems: PHP-INCLUDE wordpress/index.php (5 posts)

    Hi. I am in urgent need of help. Here is a run down of what's going on:

    I was an MT user. I am migrating to wordpress. Basically, I have a website where I simply used the PHP INCLUDE to include the /mt/index.php where I wanted the news posts to show up. I am trying to do the same with wordpress but I recieve errors. This worked no problem with MT... All I want to do is have the posts/articles to show up in the text body of an existing webpage. I don't want to keep using MT but will have to if I can't fix this easily.

    The line in my php document:
    <?php include("wp_newswire/index.php"); ?>

    And the error message I recieve:

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /homepages/20/d113155622/htdocs/wp_newswire/index.php on line 4

    Once I get this working, I will edit my template to match my MT one - it basically just hides/discludes all the extra items so all that is displayed is the posts and not the search and archives and all the extra hyperlinks.

    1. Never a good idea to include a whole file with head and everything (you will end up with the head sections, two bodies etc.)
    2. Does this help?

    It's semi helpful, but I'm not sure it's going to function the way I want. I basically need to include everything as-is. The header and things will be hidden or removed from the theme. Any ideas?

    I need users to be able to comment and everything seemlessly without taking them to something else outside the site. MT was nice for this, I just included the index.php and that was all there was to it. I then edited the MT theme to match my site and disclude all the extra text so only the posts displayed.

    I am having pretty much the exact same problem. On my site I use php to include every page. I am moving from a software called CuteNews, and I've used others like MT with no problem. I'm looking to try WP because there are so many other plugins available for it, and I want to try more mobile posting abilities. I removed the header/footer/sidebar from my template so that when I went to wordpress/index.php It showed up fine and plain with just the post information. When I tried to include wordpress/index.php I get the same error as adamyoung. Any other ideas? Here's hoping we can get it figured out.
