Because I have a limited knowledge of HTML, I have been asked to help redesign a club website
It has 42 pages all of which have the same top 2/3rd with different content in the bottom third.
I have been told that the best way to structure this is with SSI. Is it ?
And whilst I have read loads on the internet of how to link the pages, I just cannot grasp the starting pont.
I suspect that I should save the "basic page" as includes.shtml and then somehow link each bottom page to that, but I cannot get it.
If I may quote a page without any advertising of course, it's www.c5d.co.uk/notwitter.htm
All of the black area is one page. Each of the 42 pages have different content on the grey bit.
Is it practical ? If not what should I do and how would I do it ?
Thanks for reading
Hi certificates. Welcome to the forums.
If this is a static site, then yes, "includes" are a really good idea, as they allow you to edit that content in once place only. They are actually very easy to do (even for a simpleton like me). I would recommend using PHP. Here is a very simple (hopefully!) explanation of how to use PHP includes that I wrote a while back:
See id that makes any sense.
Thanks very much.
The instructions were simple, precise and worked to a tee.
The one bit I didn't understand was the bit about the ht access file.
I'll google a bit more.
My efforts are at www.c5d.co.uk/test.php
Glad it was of some use. You shouldn't need to worry about .htaccess files if you are using .php file extensions.
