I've been looking around for plugins that would let me execute php on static pages in wordpress 2.7 and i found php-exec but the php is being removed after the page is loaded a few times. so i finally decided that the best what to go is probably to create a page outside of wordpress and use includes to bring the theme to the new page however since i am a total noob with php and wordpress i am not sure exactly how to do this. anyone have any thoughts?

insert this code in or before the <head></head> section of the page and it should load all your wordpress stuff. you can even use the functions.

&lt;?php /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require('./wp-blog-header.php'); ?&gt;

just make sure that './wp-blog-header.php' reflects the location of that file on your server.

Example: './wordpress/wp-blog-header.php'

thanks did that but it still wont load the page just displays the html nothing else. i store the pages that i created in a separate folder so i con get confused with the wp stuff.

&lt;head&gt;
&lt;meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /&gt;
&lt;title&gt;KCCS: Error&lt;/title&gt;

&lt;?php /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require('../wp-blog-header.php'); ?&gt;

&lt;/head&gt;

&lt;body&gt;

&lt;h1 align="center"&gt; OOPS! There was a problem with sending your message. Please try again later.&lt;/h1&gt;
&lt;p align="center"&gt;&lt;img src="kccs logo.jpg" alt="Logo" /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;br/&gt;
&lt;h2 align="center"&gt; Sorry KCCS Admin Team&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;/body&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;

Oops... my bad forgot the calls to your theme. it should look like this.

&lt;html&gt;
&lt;head&gt;
&lt;meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /&gt;
&lt;title&gt;KCCS: Error&lt;/title&gt;

&lt;?php /** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require('../wp-blog-header.php'); ?&gt;
&lt;?php get_header(); ?&gt;
&lt;/head&gt;

&lt;body&gt;

&lt;h1 align="center"&gt; OOPS! There was a problem with sending your message. Please try again later.&lt;/h1&gt;
&lt;p align="center"&gt;&lt;img src="kccs logo.jpg" alt="Logo" /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;br/&gt;
&lt;h2 align="center"&gt; Sorry KCCS Admin Team&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;?php get_sidebar(); ?&gt;
&lt;?php get_footer(); ?&gt;
&lt;/body&gt;
&lt;/html&gt;

require('./wp-blog-header.php'); <- just makes your page aware of wordpress but doesn't actually load anything

<?php get_header(); ?> <- fetches the current template's header file which will display your header

<?php get_sidebar(); ?> <- Fetches your sidebar if you want delete it if you dont

<?php get_footer(); ?> <- gets the themes footer template just like the header.

No problem. Wordpress is brilliant... especially when you start using some of the plugins that are out their for it. I only wish I had found it sooner then I did.

ok so now i have a new issue. when i add the external links to the header file it still re-directs me to the root page of the blog or sometimes it thinks the link is a sub directory of the blog snd i end up with this http://kingscountycomputersolutions.com/ki...act/contact.php

here is the header file

&lt;!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"&gt;
&lt;html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"&gt;
&lt;head profile="http://gmpg.org/xfn/11"&gt;
&lt;meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="&lt;?php bloginfo('html_type'); ?&gt;; charset=&lt;?php bloginfo('charset'); ?&gt;" /&gt;
&lt;title&gt;&lt;?php bloginfo('name'); ?&gt; &lt;?php if ( is_single() ) { ?&gt; » Blog Archive &lt;?php } ?&gt; &lt;?php wp_title(); ?&gt;&lt;/title&gt;
&lt;meta name="generator" content="WordPress &lt;?php bloginfo('version'); ?&gt;" /&gt; &lt;!-- leave this for stats --&gt;
&lt;link rel="stylesheet" href="&lt;?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?&gt;" type="text/css" media="screen" /&gt;
&lt;link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="&lt;?php bloginfo('name'); ?&gt; RSS Feed" href="&lt;?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?&gt;" /&gt;
&lt;link rel="pingback" href="&lt;?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?&gt;" /&gt;
&lt;?php wp_head(); ?&gt;
&lt;/head&gt;
&lt;body&gt;
&lt;div id="bg"&gt;
&lt;div id="mainpage"&gt;


&lt;div id="header"&gt;
&lt;div class="title"&gt;
&lt;h1&gt;&lt;a href="&lt;?php bloginfo('url'); ?&gt;"&gt;&lt;?php bloginfo('name'); ?&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/h1&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;&lt;?php bloginfo('description'); ?&gt;&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;
&lt;div class="toprss"&gt;
&lt;a href="&lt;?php bloginfo('url'); ?&gt;?feed=rss2"&gt;&lt;img alt="RSS" src="&lt;?php bloginfo('url'); ?&gt;/wp-content/themes/Rebel/images/rss.gif"/&gt;&lt;/a&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;
&lt;div id="search"&gt;
&lt;?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/searchform.php'); ?&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;

&lt;div id="menu"&gt;
&lt;ul class="menu"&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="&lt;?php bloginfo('url'); ?&gt;"Home&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
 &lt;?php wp_list_pages('title_li=' ); ?&gt;
&lt;li&gt; &lt;a href="http://kingscountycomputersolutions.com/about.php"&gt;About Us &lt;/a&gt; &lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href="kingscountycomputersolutions.com/contact/contact.php"&gt;Contact Us&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;/ul&gt;
&lt;/div&gt;

&lt;div id="main"&gt;

any idea as to whats wrong?
