What are include pages?
Include pages are .htm pages inside of
.htm pages. The benefit of using include pages is that where ever you
have an include page, you will be able to change one page and update
several pages at once. For example: If your template has a drop down
menu all you need to do is open the nav_top.htm and make your changes.
When you click "save" it will make the changes on every page the drop
down menu was included in.
The good thing about include pages is they are
100% search engine readable.
Because our templates were created in FrontPage, our include pages
are only useable in FrontPage and Expression Web. If you are using
Dreamweaver, you can still use include pages, however you must re-enter
the include pages as SSI (server side includes). Your help file and
tutorials will help you do this.

template is a slightly different process. To learn this process click
