is it possible to set one URL prefix to include one PHP page every time? Only Wordpress header and this PHP page. I need to include some custom application but HAVE TO include wordpress powered web-design.

For example - http://my.web.com/customapp/ is a prefix and


points to one PHP page included in Wordpress theme-page.

Did you look into creating a Template for this site? Here you can find a ressource on the codex – fischi Feb 26 '13 at 22:11

Try get_template_part().

For example, in your index.php template file:

 * Index template file

 * Include header

 * Include arbitrary file
get_template_part( 'foobar' );

This will include a template-part file, foobar.php, located in the Theme's root directory.

Where is this file located, please? I don't know Wordpress very well. Is it possible to use this and show own title of page in title bar? – Xdg Feb 26 '13 at 20:38
Where is what file located? Please make your question more descriptive, if you want more precise answers. – Chip Bennett Feb 26 '13 at 20:45
I'm sorry. 1) The file you mentioned - index.php - is located in \wp-content\themes\my-theme\index.php, right? 2) Is it possible to set own title of the page (in title bar)? – Xdg Feb 26 '13 at 20:49
First question: yes. Theme template files go in wp-content/themes/{theme-name}. Your second question is entirely unrelated. – Chip Bennett Feb 26 '13 at 20:59
I'm playing with wordpress and it looks like index.php is included only sometimes. I need to include some application under wordpress so I need load application's loader file, change page title and not to trigger 404 page not found error. – Xdg Feb 26 '13 at 21:09
