1. Create a new directory <install-path>/public_html/site/custom_scripts/howto_custom_script_readable_urls and populate it with the following files:

Integrating PHP apps [or ANYTHING] into your Jadu template

Eventually, you're going to have to integrate something into your site, whether that is an interactive form, a full on custom PHP application, some neat full page function that won't fit into a widget.  I'm going to outline how I accomplished that ability here at Messiah College.
