Core Enhancements

Include an HTML file in your articles without using an iframe.

This plugin allows you to embed an HTML file into your article. Simply use {include filename.html} and the contents of the file will be inserted when the article is displayed.

NOTE: The html file will be embedded 'as is'. You should not include , or tags in your included file. In some cases the extension will not work properly if these tags are included.

Replaces the SSI include statement, and iFrames, for local or remote loading of HTML files.

Been working with Joomla for over five years. But could never find a simple way insert HTML code from disk, into an article. This does the trick.

Maybe I'm missing something. If there are other extensions that do this exact same thing, I'd like to know.

Kudos to the developer for such a simple solution.

Saves me a LOT of work

Posted on 19 September 2013
I have many legacy html pages created by GDIdb, which is an obsolete script generator for an ODBC database. This generates static html pages from a Microsoft Access database. In my case, I have directories of over 2,500 businesses and community organisations and wish to convert the original directory pages into Joomla. And I DON'T want to have to resort to re-converting the database using one of the business directory extensions just yet. Maybe later when I have more time.

After uploading and enabling the Include plugin and inserting the necessary string "{include mypage.htm}" into an article, the original data is now shown on the Joomla site.

I need to modify the scripts to remove unnecessary headers, introduction, menus, etc, but this is a very easy way to continue to use existing data without too much hassle.

When I update the Access database tables, all I need to do is ftp the new file(s) and the article is immediately updated.

Thanks for such a great plugin!
