That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Thanks scoutt for the explanation, but in order to use .shtml, do I have to learn anything, such as any server side languages?.

And thank you kdjoergensen, for the code..

I am able to write the nav code in javascript myself, but I stil have a question: I know .js stands for JavaScript file, but does it have the exactly same syntax as Javascript (because I saw some .js files that there are different in syntax from Javascript).

And thank giz for the reminder!..

You shouldn't. all you need to know is the includes or the "virtual includes" I myself even forget them and have to look them up...

I'm new to that way of doing it. But I do do it a different way. I use PHP. So Say on a page called myvacation I can have a nav bar (Links) say include links.php. I have done it on my Site.

Drawing Society Of Canada.

So on that page I have three Webpages in One. I make a layout and then in that layout I tell it to call Nav.php, news.php, header.php. And when It loads it looks like one. So when I add a link to the nav.php file it changes my whole entire website..

I have a question. what was is better? SSI or PHP?.

Thanks in Advance..

Well SSI is nothing like php so it really is up to you. if you go with SSI you can't run php, but if you go php then you have the best of both worlds; includes and dynamic content with a DB...

Ohh awesome. Then I started with the right one then (PHP).

Thanks for the quick reply..


Comment #6

You could use a navigation frame. To get rid of the border use the FRAMEBODER="0" option to reomve the border..


Comment #7

An external javascript file has exactly same syntax as in page javascript..

SSI require server side access which some webhosts do not offer...

Comment #8

Ok thanks for awesome replies people!.

Hmm... I am still confused! let's say that if I want to use SSI and my host DOES support it, is it all I have to do is to change .html to .shtml? Or I have to include some code in my web pages?..
