An Introduction to Include Tags In WordPress

Posted by

Hi,

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’ ); ?>

Thanks,

Shane G.
