I'm trying to pull in an external web page as a php include on a static page and am getting the following error:

Warning: Unknown(): stream does not support seeking in /home/themommy/public_html/staticpages/index.php(78) : eval()'d code on line 3


Line 3 is where my include statement is which is...

include_once("http://thewebpageI'mtryingtopointo,whichisminebtw");


Any idea what this error means and what I might be able to do to fix it? I looked on the php site and it mentions fseek, but I'm not php saavy enough to understand exactly what it was talking about.

BTW, I'm using 1.3.8 w/ static pages 1.3...

Thanks,

Rachael

You can't use include for this. Try using readfile or file instead.

Or maybe the external pages plugin would also do the job (not sure, though, since I've never used it myself).

bye, Dirk

file did not work, but readfile did!

Thanks! You just made my life a little easier... Laughing Out Loud

I'll look into the external pages plugin though, that might be the better way to do it.

<?
$externalfile = readfile("http://www.geeklog.net/forum/viewtopic.php?forum=2&showtopic=33161&highlight=include&quotWink;
echo $externalfile
?>

Or to wrap it in Geeklog use
?>

//adjust the ../ based on where you page is located
require_once('../lib-common.php'Wink;
$display = COM_siteHeader();
$display .= COM_startBlock("An External File&quotWink

$display .= readfile("http://www.geeklog.net/forum/viewtopic.php?forum=2&showtopic=33161&highlight=include&quotWink;

$display .= COM_endBlock();
$display .= COM_siteFooter(false);
echo $display;
?>

Thank you for your ansver.

It works in a normal file, but i can not make it working in my staticpages.
Have you tested it in your staticpages, if so can you show me all the code to put in the pages !

It works if you enable php for static pages.

That said someparts will not work.
It will break links. Specfically links that do not supply a full href URL.
A full href URL would be http://somewhere.com/index.php
this script will break links that only list as href=filename. When the browser sees the link it would link as http://yoursite.com/filename.

Try iframe if you find that links are breaking. Only probably is iframe can be hard to setup to display the whole page without placing a scrolbar in the center of you page.
