Custom BL PHP for WordPress?

Can BL's custom backlight.php be used for customizing WordPress pages when using a BL generated theme? Specifically, I'd like to use  the ttg_head hook to insert something into a particular WP page's <head>. TIA!

I was playing with ttg_head the other day and it can, in fact, insert things in the <head> of a wordpress page but you need to use conditional logic to make sure the page you're on is in fact a wordpress one.

Charlie, how did you test for a particular  WP  page? is_page() is apparently not available. I suppose one could parse and test the hook's $path parameter. But I suspect that there is an easier way, but haven't found it yet.

Re: Custom BL PHP for WordPress?

What I do is look at the URL  ( $_SERVER[REQUEST_URI] ) as you mentioned. There may be a better way but I don't know it either.

I have a function that is based on the same technique:

function page_match($gallery) {
   if (substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], 0, strlen($gallery)) == $gallery) {
      return 1;
   }  else {
      return 0;
   }
}

This function returns 1 for subpage matches too, eg, page_match('/blog'). This works well for my purpose.

Nice, I thought about doing something similar with switch / case to return different values for my various pages but never got around to it.

Re: Custom BL PHP for WordPress?

Here's what I ended up with:

function ttg_head( $style, $path ) { 
	// refresh WordPress page <wp_page> every 5 minutes
	if (substr($_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"], -strlen('/<wp_page>/')) == '/<wp_page>/') {
		echo '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300">' ;
	}
	return false;
}
