Request: Content Above Discussion Grid?

edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I was wondering if there was away (without TOO much trouble) to add content above the discussions list. I want to include a PHP file above it. something like a <?php include("content.php"); ?> is this possible, and how would i go about it.

    You might want to check out this thread:

    Which also links to another. Both I think are relavent to what you are after.

    And yes, it should support php includes as well.

    Go to this link and use that code as an extension:

    Just replace the javascript code there to put whatever html code or text you'd like to appear above the discussion list. Hope that helps you.

    Thanks, the text works great, but I am still having troubles with including a PHP file. To help illustrate my problem, I want to include my wordpress posts above the grid. I am using the K2 theme which isolates the posts from the rest of the index via 'theloop.php' Vanilla and Wordpress share the same root directory on my server. I tried the following without any luck: <?php include("http://.../wp-content/themes/k2/theloop.php"); ?> Any ideas?

    nevermind, i decided to just make a CuteNews extension instead
