Lesson 12

Since SSI only works with certain hosting services, I'm not going to ask you to do anything with SSI and the sites we've been developing in this course.

But eventually, you'll want to use content from layout.htm or clientlayout.htm in multiple pages of a site. Therefore, I encourage you to take a crack at creating an index.htm page that contains the branding, navbar, footer, and sidebar columns from your layout. Put content that's unique to the index.htm page in the content division of that page.

Remember, you don't need any special technologies to do that. Just copy layout.htm (or clientlayout.htm) to a page named index.htm. Then, put the content that's unique to your home page in the content division of index.htm.

If your hosting service supports SSI, you're welcome to take a crack at that method, too. If you have any problems, just post a message in the Discussion Area. Hopefully, we'll be able to clear things up for you there.
