$context on all pages

i am integrating vanilla into a website and need to access $context on pages outside of the vanilla directory, how do i do this? or can i access the $_session directly, would that be a better option?

    well i tried:
    1. globaling $context
    2. starting php session and echoing out key vale pairs in a foreach loop. - turns out there is only on session variable
    3. includeing init_vanilla.php - blanked out whole page

    anyone know the solution?

    I believe including the init_vanilla is the right track... but never done it myself.

    hmm, when i try it it makes it so that nothing is echoed at all, when i view html source there is nothing. it is silent no error. its horrible. i think it is including to much in in so what do i need to narrow it down to?

    thanks in advanced,

    wait, i think it need to change references in the init_vanilla, I will make a copy with special refs.
