NeedScripts, Welcome to WMW. We hope you find what you are looking for and stick around.
PHP tags inside an HTML document are no different then PHP tags inside a PHP document. The real issue is what interpreter is parsing your HTML files. You need to make sure Apache uses the PHP parser on all files that have the .HTML extension.

Drop PHP in where you need it like so:
<p>Today's date is <?php echo date('F j, Y'); ?></p>

if you're using Apache, you might want to add the following line to your httpd.conf file:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .html
but this will make the php engine to parse all html files, so make sure that's what you want.

Optionally you could have parsing on for .htm, and not for .html, so your static pages would not be parsed, but the ones containing php would be. Name any pages with php .htm, etc NeedScripts msg:1253745 5:03 pm on Jul 15, 2002 (gmt 0)
