Adding PHP code to a .shtml page

cobra502 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-13
I have written several web pages with the file extension .shtml containing  <!--#include virtual="Include/NavigateG2.inc" --> in them and everything works okay. I have added some PHP to these web pages and I now have problems.
When I continue to use file extension .shtml the php code does not get parsed. When I use the file extension .php my <!--#include virtual="Include/NavigateG2.inc" --> data is missing from the screen. I assume it is not getting parsed because the file extension is not .shtml.
My question. What file extension should I be using and what should the code look like to get these two functions to co-habitat in the same page?
Thanks for your time and help.

Guess you need to name NavigateG2.inc to NavigateG2.php or you need to add the extension .inc to be pared as a php-file
