[wp-hackers] Fooling Wordpress To Think Plugin Output Is A Page

Thanks you two for your responses already. Problem is that a) I do  
need to use the plugin redirect hook for this plugin b) even I did it  
in the way the first respondent suggests this still wouldn't help as  
the template tags still have no idea what page we are on. Is there not  
a set of variables in wp_query that tell the tags that it is a page  
etc that can be set by the plugin? I've tried a few but it is  
difficult to guess which ones are required.

Thanks again.
