I want to improve my website/administration thereof, and in order to make it easier to apply changes to it I was wondering how to do the following:
If every page of a website has the same menu-/navigation-bar on top and the same bottom (like copyright info, etc.), is there a way this common 'frame' can be just coded once and then every page of the website be referred to it?
So, that if I want to change the top-menu (like add another item to it for example) I only have to do that once as opposed to for every single page of the website?
How would I do this?
Is that what 'frames' in html coding are?
Any help would be much appreciated!
You could do that with frames or iframes, but they're a colossal pain in the ass.
If your site is simple, you can use server-side includes to insert a common snippet of HTML into every page.
My advice would be to learn server-side scripting code like PHP. There's only so much you can do with static HTML.
