An Introduction to Include Tags In WordPress

Posted by


The Template include tags are used within one Template file to execute the HTML and PHP in another template file. PHP has a built in include() statement for this purpose but these wordpress template tags make including certain specific files much easier.

The Header:
<?php get_header(); ?>

The Footer:
<?php get_footer(); ?>

The Sidebar:
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php get_sidebar(‘right’); ?>

The Search Form:
<?php get_search_form(); ?>

The Comments:
<?php comments_template(); ?>

Include any other: [here is header2]
<?php include( TEMPLATEPATH . ‘/header2.php’ ); ?>
