Re: [terryally] Insert PHP in CMSB

By Jake - August 10, 2008

Hi Terry,

If you use a plain text box field to enter in your PHP code it should work - I'm assuming you're trying to enter in this code through the WYSIWYG editor right now. Is that correct?

If you absolutely need to enter in this code through the WYSIWYG editor, I can see if there's a setting that can be adjusted to allow this in the WYSIWYG editor for you. [:)]

Hi Jake,

I used the textbox instead of the wysiwyg and it reprinted the php on the page. Somehow the code was not processed server side.

Hi Terry,

Sorry, that was my mistake - I was in an "Article Manager" way of thinking when I made that post.

The only way to actually execute extra PHP code like this would be to add it to your pages directly. Any PHP code entered into your database will not be processed, as the code needs to be parsed by the server before it comes from your database. This is something

Let us know if you have any other questions. [:)]

There is ways to execute PHP code but it's a little tricky and opens up a potential security hole. Also since PHP tags aren't valid html you have to get around the wysiwyg stripping them out.

Is there something in particular you're trying to do? There may be another way to do it that doesn't require inserting PHP code in your content.

Hi Dave,

I can find a work around for it. As I am structuring the site for the client to update I thought I would create a "footer" as a section and insert that on the template. As part of that footer I usually use PHP DATE() function to set the year and I thought it would be neat. What I've done is to hard code the PHP on the template and then still use the footer in CMSB with the other information. It still looks okay and fits with the design.

Cheers
Terry

Ok, glad it's working. If I think of an easy way to do that I'll post back on this thread.

Hope that helps!
