I need help please...When I change a link on a web page I have to go to every single page of the whole website to make the same change. For example, if I add a new link on one page, I have to go through all the pages of the entire site to add the new link to those pages as well. This could get pretty time consuming considering the site I am working on has over 50 web pages. Does someone know an easier way or is there a way to apply the change to the entire site??

Thanks for you help!!!

There are two ways to do this. The first is to use a server side programming language such as PHP. A dynamic website, such as DaniWeb, allows for interaction (such as forums) and also allows for shared borders. However, you would need to learn a programming language to do this.

Another way to do it is with server side includes (SSI). You can basically put the header and footer into separate .html documents, and include them within your documents. Then, if you need to make changes to the header and footer, there is only that one file to change.

Here is an Apache tutorial on SSI: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/ssi.html

Oh I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were using Microsoft FrontaPage. If so, there is an option called Shared Borders, I believe.
