Dear All,

I have a html page which would like to include a php script to it, the script is to check the current page URL and if the address is a "specific" address, the page would be redirect to a blank page.

The script is tested and ok, but I don't know how can I add it to the html page..as I don't want to change the page extension from html to php.

I have tried to use an image <img src="myscript.php" width="0" height="0"> but it seems that the script doesn't work.

I have also tried to use js instead..but as I can only include the script in onLoad section, the page may be loaded before the script takes action.

please advise on how can I do that..thanks!

make a file called ".htaccess" (apache only)
put it in the root of the folder
put in the file just the following line:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .html .htm

this will instruct php to parse the htm or html pages without a change in extension
then just put in your html page <?php include("myscript.php"; ?>
