Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Posting Static content for my Front Page

After <?php bfa_post_bodycopy('<div class="post-bodycopy clearfix">','</div>'); ?> in the LOOP, I posted

PHP Code:
<?php if (is_front_page(){ ?> 


//declare the variables

//create SQL connection
mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");
$query="SELECT * FROM $database.companies where support='Support' order by support desc";




        <link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/custom/style.css" type="text/css" media="print, projection, screen" />
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/jquery.fancybox.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
        <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery.fancybox.js"></script> 
        <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery.tablesorter.js"></script> 
        <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/sorter.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery.cookie.js"></script>        
            <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/jquery.tablefilter.js"></script>
            <script type="text/javascript" src="./js/filter.js"></script>            
           <script type="text/javascript">
            $(document).ready(function() {

                    'overlayOpacity'    :    0.7,
                    'overlayColor'        :    '#000',
                    'frameWidth'        :    900,
                    'frameHeight'        :    600,

                    'overlayColor'        :     '#000',                
                    'padding'            :     '2',
                    'hideOnContentClick':     false      
          <table border="0">                     
        <!-- Table for the results -->
                <td valign="top">

                    <th filter-type='ddl'><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Category</font></th>
                    <th><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Support&nbsp;&nbsp;</font></th>
                while (
$i $num) {

                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><?php echo $business?></b></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $city?></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $state?></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $address?></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><a href="http://<?php echo $website;?>" target="_blank"><? echo $website?></a></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><?php echo $category?></font></td>
                    <td><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><?php echo $support?></b></font></td>

echo "</table>";

<?php ?>
However, it's not working. It just gives me a not found error (Gives me the 404 info). Am I doing something wrong? This same php pages works fine if it's a standalone php page. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using WP 2.8.6 and Atahualpa 3.4.4

Is there a better option of getting this info in the center column on my front page? I tired to put a text widget in the center column, but it won't handle the database query.

Any help?

When you put it in the text widget did you have the exec-php plugin so the php would run?

Yes I did.

However, I found another way of doing what I was trying to accomplish. I created a template for the "static" content above and then assigned my Home page to that template. It's now working exactly how I had been hoping.
