How To embed HTML page inside PHP without an IFRAME

Postby K8POS » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:57 pm

My coding knowledge is poor at best.

I have an HTML page that I want to place inside of a PHP page.
Right now I am using the <IFRAME> to do it. While it works, Iframe does have some draw backs.
I have tried using the INCLUDE function but it would not work.

Here is the raw HTML I am trying to place:

Here you can see it running in the IFRAME:

Here is the PHP file I am trying to embed the HTM in.

Code: Select all


   #       Name
   #       Namespace:      nameSpace
   #      Meteotemplate Block
   // load theme
   $designTheme = json_decode(file_get_contents("../../css/theme.txt"),true);
   $theme = $designTheme['theme'];
   $languageRaw = file_get_contents($baseURL."lang/gb.php");
   $language['gb'] = json_decode($languageRaw,true);
   $languageRaw = file_get_contents($baseURL."lang/".$lang.".php");
   $language[$lang] = json_decode($languageRaw,true);

   <!-- BLOCK CONTENT -->

 <iframe src=""
        width="100%" height="590" frameborder="0"

Any suggestions?

It is unclear from the above if some the includes are true php (require processing) or are simply stuff that should be pasted in a html environment.

The easiest way to use html is to simply give it a .php extension, put in your usual html headers etc. and use

In the required locations ;)
