I have an external search engine and I need to create a page to add it to my site.
The page will sit on an external server, on an external URL.
They are copying in the HTML header and footer but they have the capability to include dynamic files so I would like to do that.
I want to be able to access
header.php and just print the header HTML and
footer.php and just print the footer HTML and then they can include these files in their page.
They have sent me instructions but are asking me to separate
footer files. Also, do I then upload the required PHP files in the root directory or in the theme files?
