    Calling vBulletin into a CFM page

    CalTek
      Would like to know if it is possible to call a PHP page into a CFM page. I would like to have the main page header and footer in CFM and the center content load our vBulletin page in PHP. I know this is possible with iFrames, but not all browsers support this method.

      Is there a better option?

      Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

          Theoretically you can run PHP inside ColdFusion:
          http://www.caucho.com/resin-3.0/quercus/,
          http://corfield.org/entry/ColdFusion_8_running_PHP. Practically I found
          it's very buggy and unstable for real work so I went the CFHTTP way for
          a small project I did.

          Another solution would be to generate the header and footer as static
          html and include that in PHP (and regenerate the HTML when needed).
