USING PHP SNIPPETS WITH THE FRONT_PAGE.MODULE

Probably the most common use of PHP snippets will be the front page of your site.

To use any of these snippets using the front_page.module (allows you to specify a "splash" page to your site and different front pages for anonymous/authenticated users) Simply follow these steps once you have the front_page.module installed properly:

Step 1: Go to ADMINISTER -->> SETTINGS -->> FRONT_PAGE

Step 2: In the text areas available, paste in your PHP Snippet(s).

Step 3: Select the ALLOW EMBEDDED PHP option.

Step 4: Select if you want a FULL/THEMED Front Page.

Step 5: Click on SAVE CONFIGURATION once you are happy with your front_page settings.

I haven't been able to get php working on the front page, even though it's set up to do so.

The php works in my case, but I cannot access any drupal variables from there. Even when declaring them as global :(
