I was looking for integrating external content (particularly from drupal based sites), but did not succeed. Nothing worked for me.

I found this module under develpment that seems to address my needs. I may be wrong, but I guess it could allow to display a particular node from another side within the current Drupal side (avoiding the stuff around like menus...)

I downloaded and activated it, but I have no clue what to do next. No documentation nor any discussions about it.
Is is a live or dead project?

I would be glad to help by participating to the testing

Hi jvieille,

This module allows you to include content from your drupal installation running this module on other SSI enabled pages.

To use it, you simple need to install the module on a drupal site and then use the following Server Side Includes (SSI) calls on an SSI enabled page (.shtml by default):

  • Blocks:
    <!--#include virtual="/ssi/block/[block module]/[block delta]" -->
  • Regions:
    <!--#include virtual="/ssi/region/[region name]" -->
  • Nodes:
    <!--#include virtual="/ssi/node/[node id]" -->
  • Node Teasers:
    <!--#include virtual="/ssi/node/[node id]/teaser" -->

The main purpose of this is for sites that have to run .html pages and drupal side-by-side.

The module has not been updated in a long time due to one major issue I found; When the drupal site is put into offline mode the SSI results display a full drupal offline page. I do have a workaround in the works for this issue and will likely commit it soon.

I hope this answers your questions.

Title: What SSI does? How to use it? » Include in a Drupal block?

I'm trying to share a single block across 2 Drupal sites? After installing SSI on Drupal site #1, can I insert the #include code in a block in Drupal site #2?

@Rick Nashleanas

As long as Drupal handles standard Server Side Include tags then yes, that should work. I'm fairly certain it does, I just can't recall at the minute.
Give it a test and see what happens. I'd be interested to know the results.
