html menu coding

    Hey people,

    I am just starting out with html and I only know the basics at this
    early stage. I was wondering if somebody here might be able to tell me
    the correct coding of a site menu (so the menu will appear on every
    page of the site without me having to code all of them)?

    What page do I put this coding on? Is there anything else I should
    know?

    Thanks for any help. :)

    Jack

    i would normally post a link on how to include one file in another but
    the site is <sob/> dead!

    what you're looking for is some server side scripting to include the
    common parts of a page with the other parts of the page before its sent
    to the visitor.

    with php you could use 'include "my-menu.ext";' where you want the menu
    to appear in your documents.
    http://php.net/manual/en/function.include.php

    when someone asks for the page the server sticks in the stuff contained
    in the my-menu.ext file where you said to put it and then sends the
    complete page to the visitor.

    when you make changes to your menu you just edit my-menu.ext.

    As you will see, if you 'look around the web', some
    people don't even seem to know the basics, even at
    a very late stage :)

    > What page do I put this coding on?


    Every page where it's needed(likely all of them).

    > Is there anything else I should know?


    Don't top post.
    HTML is for markup, CSS is for presentation.
