ok, now I see what you are doing.
you don't need any php or any include php for this at all.
you are not using any php code in your countdown page at all.
if you are trying to simply display that countdown timer then you have way more code in that index.html file than you need for just that.
I can't figure out what all that code is supposed to be doing. it looks like a sales page from themeforest.net for web site templates etc.
you have links back to the flatboots theme folder , links to multiple scripts, etc. etc. etc
none of which are working propely from what I can tell.
so, at this point I still say to keep using the iframe because unless you start completely over I don't think you will get it to work any other way.
robert, can't tell you how much i appreciate your trying to help me sort this out....
the landing page's index.html file has a lot of links (css, js, etc.) to it's own sub-folders, not to the phpbb-theme's (flatboots) files (as far as i can tell), and all of the links seem to be working fine, i.e. if i delete a link the landing page's corresponding feature stop working.
yes, i want a countdown (which i could get anywhere and easily add to my existing theme), but the landing page has a lot of other features that i'm interested in, sliding hero images, two hidden panels that can act as a storyboard etc..
anyway, in the past i've had great luck adding these sort of things (custom navbars, video headers, large animated header images, etc.) by just using <--include html.file, no fuss no muss, but this thing has so much common css that my phbb-theme's css takes over and renders it pretty useless, it also conflicts with a lot of my theme's css code...
by using php i could pretty much sandbox the thing, as can be seen using the direct link the php page, my theme's css remains untouched, and so does the landing page's css and js stuff...
just wish i could get <--includephp to work because the more i try to get the iframe to look ok, the more i realize the iframe's limitations, including slow loading.
anyway, thanks again.
