ok, I'm looking to be able to add my .nav header in all my htm/pages with a few lines of code, so i can edited it from one place... my server doesn't allow me to use the asp header, but i can use .asp files??(and i dont want to change) can I still use asp code? without the header? or would .jsp file be a better way to go? or could shtml be as good?


Also, I would like to know the pros and cons of each..and which is best.

My prefrence for this sort of thing is to use Server Side Includes because maintaining them is just about as much of a no-brainer as you can find.

Yeah, and Shtml files should be faster in theory as they only have one specific thing to look for and do.

Syntax for ASP & SSI is exactly the same.

<!--#include file="thing.inc"-->
or
<!--#include virtual="otherthing.inc"-->


If you were considering having some Server Side activity going on in future then it'd be a better bet to make 'em all ASP now thuogh, imho.

Out of interest, why are they all ASP now if they aren't doing any ASPing?

You should also consider an HTML Preprocessor which requires no server resources at all.

ok,

I'm using ssi, but i'm having a issue. when i try to go back a few directories i get [an error occurred while processing this directive]

example of what i'm doing <!--#include file="../menus/cds.htm"-->
how do I go back a directory or 2? using absolute paths doesnt work either.

>>>>> Syntax for ASP & SSI is exactly the same. <<< is all syntax the same?

You can use virtual= instead of file=

<!--#include file="/html/menus/cds.htm"-->

where /html/menus/cds.htm is the full virtual path to the include file
