I heard there is a new API that is not SSI is this true, and where can I find more info on it?

Maybe it's a supid question, but I have no clue about php

You can use .shtml, or .php

Ok thanks

I normally use Frontpage and I have a index page called index.htm is there some way I can change this page to .shtml or do I have to make a whole nesw page?


 :)This kind of tutorial is EXTREMELY helpful!
Looking forward to the advanced topics!

I hope there's something similar for the events calendar.

Ok, maybe I'm just not following...and as smart as I like to think I am, it's a little frustrating to be sounding so stupid and not grasping what should be a simple concept.

Following the directions as I have read them:

Create a document with a php extension. Place code within it. Place UNNAMED php document SOMEWHERE RANDOM in your forum directory.

Errr...what do I name this document, and how the heck does the forum software know how to access it?

I have multiple forums.

I have a shared database for these forums, each install has it's own tables, with only a few tables shared, such as...

Now, the issue I have here, is that I am under the understanding that SSI will allow my folks to log in, and bop from board to board to board (I also have the cookies set the same for each board). How do I do so, with SSI, because right now, even with the shared tables and cookies, you still have to log in fresh for each board...and that just won't do!


I'm quite confused...... I have a html homepage and that's where I want the code to go... So if I put the code in a php file it works, but how do I get it to work on my html page? Here's my current code.

ssi_welcome(); ?>


change the .html extension to .php.
The only thing php can't do is tell you how much milk is left in the fridge.


But everything else in that page(index.html) is html.........


it doesnt matter.

php doesnt even do anything if the code isnt surrounded by <?php ?> tags. it's a server side language. it just outputs html.

The only thing php can't do is tell you how much milk is left in the fridge.


Okay-- so you have to have it .php, gotcha.

Is there a shtml version of this FAQ?



Got lost again in the vast forum, heheheh . . . I also wanted to know how to CSS this:

Output page                    CSS file
Board  Topics Posts  =    .ssi_table
test1    1        1        =     ? what .ssi are these?
test2    1        2

<th height="300" scope="row" class="ssi_tables"><?php ssi_topBoards(); ?></th>

What is the code for this one, err I mean the .ssi_??? for this part. But when you use .ssi_table it'll only change the table not the lower half where would I change this and how to I code this for these are two types, right?

Thank you

Tomer shouldn't your welcome.txt be:


// Script writen by Tomer "Lamper" Dean.
// **NOTE** Always check that the require statement is correct!
// A script that puts the persons membergroup into a variable for later use.

// Puts every person into a group.

if ($context['allow_admin'])
$MemberGroup "Admin";
elseif (
$MemberGroup "Guest";
$MemberGroup "User";

// Echo's the membergroup of the person.

'<center><h5>Welcome $MemberGroup!</h5></center>';


otherwise a user is guest and a geust is user...


i would like to do something that another user here mentioned as well. i am building a site from the ground up without using a CMS. i have SMF installed that is being used, and would like to take the main page from the site and use SSI to handle logins and authentication. my problem with doing it with ssi_login(); is that the form posts to the root page of the forums. is there any way to have ssi_login(); post back to the root page of the site itself, and not take you into the forums?

everything is working flawlessly so far...i just need to get this one thing sorted out :D


Is there anyway of adding an actual board into ssi :D

Did you try your domain name>>  <?php include (' [nonactive]'); ?>

For some reason I can't get the login to pass the credentials. I'm running SMF 1.06 and PHP 4.4.1.

If I use:


it works, but I get this:

QuotePlease don't access SSI.php by URL directly; you may want to use the path ('SSI.php') or add ?ssi_function=something.

if I use the correct path


where ##### is my account



since the login.php is in the same directory as SSI.php

it doesn't pass the credentials.

My whole code below

Thanks in advance for any assistance.  If I find anything out I'll edit my post and put below.




if (
'<h5>Access Denied</h5>
 We are sorry guest, it seems you dont have premission to view these downloads.'
'<h5>Welcome '$context['user']['name'], '!</h5>
 Here are your downloads:'


what do you have to when you said open a text file and save it with a extension of .php and then open it and put that code in it then what do you do. im trying to get it so that if you login your logged in on the forums. I dont get it can someone explain in full?


Ok, Someone needsto help me. I took the code from the welcome file from the first post, and put it in my php file at the very top, and I still can't see nothing.


// Script writen by Tomer "Lamper" Dean.
// **NOTE** Always check that the require statement is correct!
// A script that checks if your a guest, and if guest, puts a login box,

// Checks which membergroup you are in.

if ($context['user']['is_guest'])


Am I missing something? please help a PHP retard XD
