Hi there,

Is this possible...

You make like a html document or something and it just has like a paragraph of text in. Then you name it say 'text' then upload it to the internet. Then if i want to put that text on a main page in my site, could you like include a tag that inserts all the content from the text page into your page?

So like <insert "http://www.allsortsh...com/text.htm">?

So basically i want a tag that inserts all the content from another html page or a .txt file into another html page?

So then, on the main page, if i wanted to update the news story, i could just edit what it says on the text html page and then the page which displayed all the content of the text page on it will automatically change?

Is there a way of doing this?

Hmmm.. I'm not too sure how that works, but I do know it's possible.. atleast with .js files...
Here's the code:

<script type='text/javascript' src='text.js'></script>

Or do you want to basically have a code like the above one that'll insert everything typed in your text.txt file into the page...?

I think the above code might work.. I'd have to test it.. let me try for you.. I'll get back to you in about 15 minutes...

With SSI

<!--#include file="page.txt" --> or
<!--#include file="page.shtml" -->


With PHP

<? include('/directory/file.php'); ?>

SSI stands for Server Side Includes, and it can only appear in .shtml files. PHP includes can only go in .php files. Oh, and you insert it wherever you want the content to appear

Ahh,

I see now.

So you insert it in the body tag wherever you want it to be displayed on the page?

Thanks!
