PHP includes with Cascade Server
The University of Missouri makes heavy use of Hannon Hill’s Cascade Server, a XSLT-based content management system. One of the downsides to Cascade is that it doesn’t build live pages on the fly. Changes to files and templates must be published out before they will be live on the server. Even a fairly minor edit, like changing contact information in the footer, may require your entire site to be republished.
Fortunately, there is a solution. We can move our boilerplate content to separate files, and instead configure Cascade to use PHP includes on the live site.
