I'm having trouble connecting to a database file using the "text/html" widget in Wordpress 2.8.4. This is the widget that allows you to add text to a sidebar. I found a plugin for including PHP in the code, but it didn't work. (plugin: http://bit.ly/4QMCj
The database file is at: http://www.mydomain.com/database/db.php
The WP blog is installed at http://www.mydomain.com/blog/
The (truncated) code I'm using (which works on the HTML portion of the site) is below.
Is there a way to use absolute paths?
