  • Could you post the code for the header.php file?

    it’s strange…i put in the header the include and ond’t work…i put the same in the index.php of template and it works

    <? include(‘./tts/in.php’); ?>

    why ?

    This is the header.php

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “”>
    <html xmlns=””>

    <head profile=”″>
    <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”<?php bloginfo(‘html_type’); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo(‘charset’); ?>” />

    <title><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?><?php wp_title(); ?></title>

    <meta name=”generator” content=”WordPress <?php bloginfo(‘version’); ?>” /> <!– leave this for stats please –>

    <style type=”text/css” media=”screen”>
    @import url( <?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_url’); ?> );

    <link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”RSS 2.0″ href=”<?php bloginfo(‘rss2_url’); ?>” />
    <link rel=”alternate” type=”text/xml” title=”RSS .92″ href=”<?php bloginfo(‘rss_url’); ?>” />
    <link rel=”alternate” type=”application/atom+xml” title=”Atom 0.3″ href=”<?php bloginfo(‘atom_url’); ?>” />

    <link rel=”pingback” href=”<?php bloginfo(‘pingback_url’); ?>” />
    <?php wp_get_archives(‘type=monthly&format=link’); ?>
    <?php //comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>



    <div id=”main” >

    <div id=”containerleft”>

    <div id=”logon”></div>

    <div id=”body”>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <div id=”box”>

      <?php wp_list_cats(‘sort_column=id&optioncount=1&exclude=6’); ?>


    <div id=”content”>
    <!– end header –>

    What does include.php do?

    You mention it connects to the DB, what does it do with that connection?

    Oh, I just read it tracks people. If it doesn’t actually generate any output for the browser, index.php is probably the best place to put it!

    But it’s not the same ? I don’t understand beacuse it doesn’t work on header. this is the code of include:

    [long code removed – always post long code to a pastebin service]

    I’m not really sure, I’ve noticed that sometimes things don’t work when I put them in header. I have a hunch that it’s because index.php is the “main page”, and header.php gets included into it — but somehow has “lower privileges”.

    I’m not entirely sure of the mechanics, though.

    with the include i ahve some trouble..for example.

    In the index.php if i put the include before this i can’t show the rating

    <?php if(function_exists(‘the_ratings’)) { the_ratings(); } ?>

    If i put the include at the bottom of the index.php rating is showed…why there are all this conflict ?

    other ideas ?

    Is there a particular problem with putting your include at the bottom of index.php?

    If it works, what’s the problem?

    It works but for me it’s not the best place, yesterday for example i have receive another error…i have add the include in wp-blog-header.php and it works.

    Which is the best place to put it, now i have put it at the top…but i can include better ?:

    include (“in.php”);

    if (! isset($wp_did_header)):
    if ( !file_exists( dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/wp-config.php’) ) {
    if ( strstr( $_SERVER[‘PHP_SELF’], ‘wp-admin’) ) $path = ”;
    else $path = ‘wp-admin/’;
    die(“There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.”);

    $wp_did_header = true;

    require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/wp-config.php’);


    require_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/template-loader.php’);



    I’m not really sure, to be honest. You might try putting it in index.php — the one that lies in the root directory. Eg, if your blog was at, put it in
