file_get_contents in a theme development (in a widget of the theme). However the theme check plugin gives me following warning:
WARNING: file_get_contents was found in the file file.php possible file operations. Line 49: $data = file_get_contents ( 'http://example.com'); Line 62: $count= file_get_contents ( $cfile );
My question is that if it is not allowed in the themes, is there any alternative for this function which can be used? Thanks.
