It is not clear what you are trying to accomplish but requireing particular Core files is a red flag. Please explain the problem better. Also, PHP start and end tags are not "line start" and "line end" markers! – s_ha_dum Sep 26 '13 at 13:58
sorry about this .my problem is how to show the admin page [visual form builder] in Front end . – Mohamed Ibrahim Sep 26 '13 at 14:36
You really should not be trying to include pieces of backend code on the front end. That code assumes certain things about security that won't necessarily be present if you only include parts of the backend, not to mention the high probability of "undefined function" errors. Build a new interface if you need to show something on the front. – s_ha_dum Sep 26 '13 at 15:13
Aha . if ican do this just give user role permission to acess this page . But in this case i want to customize the backend page to add my own menus And replace the top header . What's your opinion . – Mohamed Ibrahim Sep 27 '13 at 14:18
I would lean toward creating/altering a backend page but it is still not clear exactly what you are trying to do. – s_ha_dum Sep 27 '13 at 14:39
