I am trying to display rss feeds on my site without using javascript.

I've installed configured & tested Carp and it works fine however I have a problem in that all of my pages are shtml and rely heavily on server side includes which don't display if I change the file extension to .php.

I'm no programmer and know almost nothing about php, I can just install and configure scripts (if they're well documented).

Is there a way to use server side includes in .php pages?

Hello DaGrip, and WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com].

These are the 2 solutions that I dreamed up:

1. Try using PHP includes instead of SSI
2. Try configuring your server to parse SSI in .php files.

I have an apache server and wanted to use SSI with .html files instead of .shtml files and used the following code in a .htaccess file in my root folder:

AddHandler server-parsed .html

I am guessing that you could try an .htaccess file with the following code:
AddHandler server-parsed .php

I did a bit of research for you and it looks like you may find more detailed answers in this thread: Parse HTML or not [webmasterworld.com]

Thanks for the reply.

My solution was to put the php code in a seperate php file and use an SSI to include it on the page. It seems the quickest solution as changing all the SSI's to php includes would have taken ages!
