Footer tags is included in all 5 pages, When I update any page then I have to edit this line

Is there a way to create variable to store last updated value.

I the website on a server with PHP available? A simple PHP include will let you reference the footer in each page but only require you to update it once (in the footer.php file you would create).
Although I always assumed that the date updated applied to that page in particular. If you only update page 1 should the updated date change for page 2?


I never tried this in html,

in classic asp or php, we will use a feature called SERVER SIDE INCLUDES

that is creating a seperate file html or asp , name it footer.html

then include this file all the pages

like below

<div><!--#include file="footer.html" -->

so you have to modify only one file footer.html , incase if you want to update
