Loading views within the error template

Hey, I am completely new to CI and am just experimenting with it at the moment. It looks brilliant so far.

I am however trying to make the 404 Error template fit in with the rest of my application. To achieve this, I have created two views called "tpl_header.php" and "tpl_footer.php" which are included within all the other views.

This doesn't seem to be possible within the error template however as it isn't a normal "view". Is there any way I can include the template files?


Can't be done. The error page has to also work in the event that CodeIgniter itself is not working. It's not loaded or parsed as a view, and therefore CodeIgniter is inaccessible. I have created a static header which is the same as the dynamic one, but stripped of all variables. Granted, some data is missing, but the error page looks like it's a part of the Web site, and users can use the top navigation to navigate elsewhere, such as the Contact Us form to complain...

Oh, and welcome to the CodeIgniter community!! (Sorry, got distracted).

ok i'll get to work doing that then.
thanks for the quick reply!
