Hi listees Does anyone use SSI for headers, footers, etc on their site? I am trying to use SSI at least for the header section of a site I am developing. However, the html content on the includes file is not appearing on the web page???? I'm afraid that I don't know a great deal about this stuff, but from what I have read, it shouldn't be that difficult!!! But I can't get the damn stuff to work. HELP. I have entered the following in the web page: <!--#include file="header.txt" --> the header.txt file is in the same folder as the html page. The header.txt file contains two tables which should nest into a table in the shtml file. A test page is at: http://www.chi.gov.uk/eng/about/index.shtml (The page should look like: http://www.chi.gov.uk/eng/about/who.htm please ignore the links etc on the pages as most of them will not work) The header.txt file is at: http://www.chi.gov.uk/eng/about/header.txt What you see in the header.txt file should appear at the top of the index.shtml page. Can anyone help with this, as to why it is not working!!!! I have checked with my ISP and they say that yes I can use SSI on the site, so the server should be configured for SSI.
