Setup For .html/.htm Files Without A Footer File

    Here's a quick little setup if you have a site where the server supports mod_rewrite and PHP, but all your files are .htm or .html...
    SEMrush
    All these files would go in the root folder of your site:

    .htaccess
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    	RewriteEngine On
    	RewriteBase /
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ^(.*).htm [NC,OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ^(.*).html [NC]
    	RewriteRule ^(.*)       /passthru.php?file=$1
    </IfModule>
    Code (markup):
    passthru.php
    <?php
    	
    	if (!function_exists('file_get_contents')) {
    		function file_get_contents($url) {
    			$handle = fopen($url, 'r');
    			$string = fread($handle, 4096000);
    			fclose($handle);
    			return $string;
    		}
    	}
    	
    	include ('ad_network.php');
    	echo preg_replace ("/<\/body>/i", $ad_network . '</body>', file_get_contents(str_replace ('../', '', $_REQUEST['file'])));
    
    ?>
    PHP:
    Drop the normal ad_network.php and empty ad_network_ads.txt file into the folder as well.

    What it will do is read any .htm or .html file, and insert the ad before the </body> tag. You can change it up to adjust formatting or for multiple ads, but it should be a start for those that need it.

    Thanks Shawn

    What's the advantage of using passthru.php instead of having:

    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html

    in your .htacess and including the code as per usual?

    The only real advantage is you don't have to add the PHP code to all the files.

    Hi Shawn,

    Two problems:

    How do I add it to the main page? For some reason (I'm guessing because it doesn't end in .htm) the ads don't appear in there.

    How do I add multiple ads? I can only add one...

    Thanks

    seohome, you add that code into the .htaccess file.

    I've tried adding the code to the .htaccess file but that causes an internal server configuration error. I tried it on 2 servers - no success.

    You server may not allow mod_rewrites... if you check your error log, you will know for sure.

    I added that code. I mean, the script IS working for me. It just doesn't appear in the index...

    Also, I don't know how to add multiple ads with this system (the code is too messy for me to handle it :confused: )...

    Thanks again for the help

    Is your index a .html or .htm file?

    For two ads (as an example) you could add:
     . ' - ' . $ad_network[1]
    PHP:
    right after the $ad_network[0] variable. That will put a dash between them.

    My index is a .htm and so are all my other pages but the ads don't appear in the index :confused:

    I tried to add that code to have multiple ads (exactly the same) but I didn't succeed. I guess it is because I have to write an include for each ad_network... but where do I add it?

    Thanks Shawn

    What's your site URL?

    You don't need multiple includes if you have the latest ad_network.php file (from yesterday or today).

    My URL is http://www.poems-and-poetry.com

    By the way, I've added the multiple ads thanks to the new ad_network.php :)

    Edit: I made the code to replace "SEO Firm: SEOHome" by the way.

    Not sure to be honest... They are there if you specifically specify index.htm I also tested it on this end, without the filename being specifically specified and it's working for me. So the only thing I can think of is maybe Apache isn't seeing the actual filename somehow with the %{REQUEST_FILENAME} variable.

    Yeah... I tried to add some more conditions to the .htaccess regarding the domain but couldn't do it.

    The only way I got the ads to appear is by placing
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html
    PHP:
    in the .htaccess above
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    	RewriteEngine On
    	RewriteBase /
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ^(.*).htm [NC,OR]
    	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ^(.*).html [NC]
    	RewriteRule ^(.*)       /passthru.php?file=$1
    </IfModule>
    PHP:
    and the other code directly in the index. However, when I did this, the ads stopped appearing in the internal pages :rolleyes:

    You could do it with the rewrite, then change your index.htm to index.php I suppose... unless you are linking specifically to index.htm somewhere.
