Can you rate my iPage web page?

Got a quick question: Can you rate my iPage web page? Many thanks for any answer. My 2nd question... Hi All.

My store is part of my iPage site in the catalog directory (ie mysite/catalog/).

On the home page of my main site, I'd like to pull the whats_new.php file from the boxes directory..

However, if I reference like:.

<?php require('catalog/includes/boxes/whats_new.php') ?>.

It won't appear as some of the info is started in the application_top.php file..

Is there a way of pulling this (or any other) infobox above the root level of the store?.

Thanks chaps (and chapettes).

You betcha! although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm this as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the iPage guys because they can answer your iPage question better...

Hi Lyndsay.

If I inlcude the application_top (and bottom, of course) the references through my configure file still fail...

Comment #2

Oh yea.. because the config. starts at the /catalog...

Hmm.. there IS a way to do this.. I think it's a change in the config, but I will need to search this more...

Comment #3

I think I'mgoing to just recor dthe applcation top into the home page..

I'll let you know how it goes...

OK..

If you place the entire application_top.php file above your <head> section of the page, and rename all the DIR_WS_CATALOG (etc) with the explicit root url, that sorts out the main references..

However, the images from the whats_new.php query are also out of kilter..

These will need to be rebuilt in the query..

To be honest, it's too much work for what I need (seeing as I get the infobox in the same layout too) - So I'm going to rebuild the box to match my homepage more closely...

Sure.. you need to require(application_top.php) and then include the whats new box.. Obviously you also need to make sure that your root files are .php and not .html..
