I'm trying create a directory on my site that is updated outside or wordpress. I'm going to create a database for this directory and update the pages separately of wordpress.
However, I would like it to maintain the same settings all the other pages have through wordpress. For example, the widgets I have for the sidebars would still be desired so I don't have to update in two places. I'd also like it to maintain the connection for functions like bloginfo and other similar items. When I try and set up a page that still calls wordpress files, I inevitably get a fatal error.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function language_attributes() in **** on line 2.
Sorry, I'm not that knowledgeable in php and can't find through my research a way to do this. I'm wondering if someone knows how I can maintain separate pages outside of wordpress that still utilize some of WP's functions.
