Hi All,

I searched the forum heavily and tried everything I can find to no avail.

I've installed a traffic trading script that requires the use of a compiled cgi file "in.cgi".  This file basically counts incoming hits, and sets a tracking cookie.

The docs specify one of the following mehtods of inclusion:

Code: [Select]
To track incoming hits, you need to place the following code in your index.shtml file
<!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/at3/in.cgi" -->
for php mainpages use
<?php virtual ("/cgi-bin/at3/in.cgi"); ?>

Neither one will work. I'm using the custom header mod for plain HTML without issue. However, the ssi isn't executed - of course it won't execute php files...

The php code always gives the "cannot modify headers..." error.

Any ideas on how I can execute this script correctly?

Thank you,

George_CC fixed this for me - the line of code:

virtual ("/cgi-bin/at3/in.cgi");

went in the theme.php just before the template was evaluated  at the end of the pagerheader function.

It's working great now.
