I floundered around trying to get MTIncludePlus working so I would just include the URL when rebuilding the page, but that was a no go as OS X server doesn’t include LWP::useragent by default. When installing it with CPAN, I got some build errors on some peripheral modules, and just decided to implement the PHP solution as I felt it was a little more portable.
I placed the PHP code into a new index template and changed the variables to reflect my options. Had to create the /tools directory as PHP will not automatically create it. Manually called the page a few times so it would create the html file and we were ready to rock. Simply called the php file I created with an MTInclude tag and all was well.
