Including Two of the same php files?

Post by ssjgohan23 »

Hi,

Below is the news syndication mod by chAos.

edit: I figured out how to display arrays, and it is working, but I want this code to be included twice into my front page. Right now, I can only include it once, otherwise the other include won't show up. My site is located at umichanime.com. Any help would be appreciated.

Code: Select all

<?php
/******************************************************************************
* POST SYNDICATION SCRIPT by chAos
*
* A very basic script that pulls threads with the first post from the database
* and puts them into an array form so you can use them as you like.
*
* For use with phpBB3, freely distributable
*
******************************************************************************/

/** Notes:
*
* - Attachments haven't been handled properly.
* - Starts a forum session as Guest user, taking all the default values for time, bbcode style (from theme), etc
* - While viewing this page, users will appear to be viewing the Forum Index on viewonline.php.  
*   This can't be helped without modifying other code which is beyond this
*
