I’ve set up a site with a theme purchased here and its installed. I’m planning to have some external pages which reference the header and footer of this theme so both internal and external pages match and I can make changes to the navigation etc of the Wordpress site and have those changes applied dynamically to the non-Wordpress pages as well.

I’m able to call the Wordpress header, footer, etc on my external pages by including wp-load.php at the top of the non-Wordpress pages and using get_header() etc to display the header. The problem is that when I do this, none of the options set in Appearance > Theme Options seem to be present.

How do I use this theme on external pages AND have the customizations made in Theme Options appear as well?

Why do you need external pages ?. You can create your own page templates by reusing the theme code . -Tahir

The external pages are php pages with a number of data base calls. So working in the wordpress format is not possible. (to my knowledge). The idea of referencing the theme header is that if I change my blog theme or settings, these external pages would update as well. Giving me an entire site that has a similar look and feel.
