Call php file from a page node - Call .php file from a page node. Works in XenForo v 1.2 or 1.1.5

At some point you may want to call an external php file, and have the results show up in your forums. There are a bunch of different ways to do this, but I am going to show a simple example that helps you get the ball rolling.

The example is going to query the XenForo database for all users, and group them by their user group.

@EasyTarget... Thanks for posting your great example. It was very useful.

I'm creating my first pagenode with callback. One thing I don't understand, is why don't you return a var called $templateHTML instead of $mugHTML? If you did, it seems that you could avoid having to modify the pagenode container.

Maybe I'm missing something here?

Read through the developer docs, https://xenforo.com/xf2-docs/dev/
I already have but it doesn't help me. I think I'm lacking the basic knowledge.

I have an SQL Query which I host on a php file. It lists the forum members and some stats.
It is absolutely stand-alone but I want it to be integrated as a page node.

The dev docs didn't help me on how to create a php class that querries the users and outputs a table with my custom sql statement.

I really want to get into it but I'm struggling with the first steps.
