Topic: Use "PHP Include" in main.tpl?

To make updating my site easier I have started using PHP includes every now and again, basically so i don't have to edit every page of my site if I add a new item to my menu or something. My question is, I am trying to include these php includes on my Punbb board also but it doesn't work.

I presume this is because the file is of .tpl extension so it won't call the include. Does anyone know of a way around this problem?

It's no big deal but would be nice to only have to edit the one file for the whole site smile Many Thanks

You can use the following code:
<pun_include "page.php">

and it will include PHP files in the tpl file.

That file needs to be in the include/user folder.
