Hello,

I want to have a navigation bar on the side of my pages, but don't want to have to maintain the navigation bar in every single page....

Seems there has to be a way that a html document can "include" another files html... similar to how images are called/inserted into documents...

I asked a similar question earlier and people told me to use cgi/asp/javascript ... I don't want to go this route.... also, SSI is not an option....

Thanks,
Keith

Hi Keith!
In this case..
Isn't it easier to make the navigation bar as a separate frame? :)

Hmmm...Scripts or frames, that is the question.  Why do you not want to use scripting?

A simple answer is to use frames as stated above Just in case you don't know how to use frames here is some sample code to get you started:

<HTML>

<HEAD>
<TITLE>Your title here</TITLE>
</HEAD>

<FRAMESET cols="20%,*">
<FRAME SRC="sidebar.html" >
<FRAME src="main.html" Name="main" scrolling=auto>
</FRAMESET>

<NOFRAMES>
Your no frames HTML here
</NOFRAMES>

</HTML>

Sidebar.html will be your navigation bar and main will be where your webpages are displayed.you must reference the "main" frame using target

eg.: <A HREF = "Page1.htm"  TARGET="main">Page1</a>

This will specify a link to a page called page1 and the link will show up on the side bar provided you put the code in the side bar page "sidebar.html"

The other thing to watch out for is case sensitivity. This is the root of a lot of problems especially where links are involved and I suggest that you keep everything in lower case.
