Currently it won't display PHP commands, it will just display a blank, but the software is based on PHP. Any ideas?" First - apologies my PHP is sketchy to say the least BUT I believe that mambo simply uses <? echo $content; ?> in a class defined in \classes\html\articles.php. Instead of dumping the article content stored in the database to stdout you would need to parse it by using eval($content) - i think that your $content would all have to be PHP code so if you went down that route you would have to write your articles like this: <?php echo $header; echo $somecontent; //do some PHP stuff echo $footer; ?> Maybe a better solution would be to write your articles in XML and then add an XML parser to the articles class - you could then parse the data either to stdout or to eval() etc. based on the XML tags. Just thoughts - still too fat from the holidays here to think clearly though! chris.
