Use plugins on “non-WordPress” sites?

  • Hey,
    I’m very new to this whole WordPress thing and was wondering if it would be possible to use WordPress plugins on a “normal” html web page?
    Thanks

  • To do what? (Probably not on a .html page – the WP is based on PHP).

    I want to use wordpress plugins in my php pages that I’m developing using FrontPage.

    php pages with FP? Hmmm… I give it up at this moment.

    Actually you can use WP plugins on other php files – if they are WP-aware.
    You need to include this on the top of those files, before everything:
    <?php
    require('./path-to-your-blog/wp-blog-header.php');
    ?>

    really? so all I have to do to use the plugins is put that php require string?

    Don’t be such a Thomas… 🙂

    ok then….i believe! 😉

    And please, believe that you should use something besides FP….

    I would if I could afford it!!!!!!!! 🙁

    There are some decent free editors out there. You just need to look for them.

    And the one I bought for use is only $80 – TopStyle Pro from http://bradsoft.com/ (it’s actually newsgator now, but anyway….)

    I have tried to do this on a non wordpress page and while I have the content pulling in fine, none of the plugins still work.

    require_once(“news/wp-blog-header.php”);

    I thought that would work but the MyGallery plugin just shows this: [mygal=celebrities_hz] where the galler yshould be.

    The viper quicktime plugin just shows this: [quicktime width=”320″ height=”260″]http://www.domain.com/file.mov[/quicktime]

    Thannk for any help. The images and everything else show up fine so I know the database is being accessed.
