PHP In Custom Blocks

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of converting from 3.4.5 to 4.1.X and I have to rebuild my content and blocks because things don't look right. I have a custom block that displays a random fact (quote if you will) that uses a line of PHP. I tried all of my options when creating the block and paid attention to any notations about using php. I can't get it to display the random fact. For example, I choose:

  • Create New Block
  • Type = Custom
  • Content Editor = Manual PHP
  • Then I enter in the editor:
    {parse include="/filebin/randomquote/randomquote.php"}


What I get on the front end is:  Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'include' (T_INCLUDE) in /home/fordd0/public_html/ips4TEST/applications/cms/sources/Blocks/Block.php(201) : eval()'d code on line 1

What am I doing wrong? This works fine on my live site with the old version.
