<!-- PHP --> not work in templates

Post by NeoN_Style » Sun Mar 02, 2008 1:10 pm

hello!

i have a trouble with PHP scripting in templates.

for example, in overall_footer.php i've insert example script:

<!-- PHP -->
echo "test";
<!-- ENDPHP -->

but it doesn't work!!!

what i should to do ?

P.S. Javascript not work also...
<script type="text/javascript">
writeln ('test');
</script>
result: no 'test' on page

P.S.S. answers on dumb questions:
1) It's before </body> and </html> tags. it's in the middle of template.
2) I've searched on phpBB development questions, and did not find anything about this
3) I need PHP in templates for "switch" and "readfile" function


Thanks, kind regards.

1) Such questions should be asked on phpbb.com
2) You need to enable PHP in templates in Security section of Admin Panel.
3) Make sure you refresh the template from Admin Panel and clear your browser cache after you've modified the code
4)
writeln ('test');
What's this, Pascal? :P
