I am having trouble integrating my easy php calendar into my wordpress blog.
Thing I've done already:
I've successfully added my EPC to the wordpress blog's database on my server.
I host my my own WordPress site.
I've placed the <?php $CSS=1; require("calendar/calendar.php"); ?> tag in the header.php file.
Here are things I currently cannot do.
1) I cannot place the sidebar mouse-over code in the <body> portion of the sidebar.php of my theme because there is no <body> tag in the sidebar.php. I'm not sure if this is because I"m using dynamic sidebars, but the three sidebar.php files I've looked (my current theme, the Classic theme and the default theme simply do not have <body> tags in their sidebar.php files.
2) in addition, adding the php code you mentioned in the "Text 1" area of the sidebar (via the sidebar widget) results in nothing being displayed.
3) I've found that trying to post php code in my actual posts results in the code being ignored. I've tried using plugins like exec php, but to no avail.
Is there some kind of security built within wordpress that prevents php scripts from being executed?
I'm in the dark here. I've exhausted all my options. I want to get a dynamic blog working with a built in calendar. Is this too much to ask?
thanks for your input.
