    How can I use common code on multiple web pages?

    I have about 20 html pages that will all share some common html coding. The common elements will be changed and updated frequently.

    Is there an easy way to have 1 document that contains the common code that is used by all 20 pages so I don't need to updated all of the pages each time?

    Also, I want to stay away from frames.

    Thanks, Damon

    try this using php:
    save the common code in a temp.php and include it wherever you need in your webpage using the include command

    As I understand ,

    The best solution to your problem is using php.

    Just separate header,sidebars,mainbody,and footer section in different pages...

    and put it in the pages by using include_once or require_once command.

    We are using this process in all our projects and it can be implemented easily and successfully..

    a historical note:

    Long time ago (before PHP and other scripting languages became popular), people used M4 macro processor to include common elements into HTML pages. A nice article describing the process:

    Try using an external Javascript file. For help on how to do that, check out the Javascript forum here. Basically:
    <script src="somefile.js" type="text/javascript" langauge="javascript"></script>

    Nikiitea was right but he didn't explain it. Here's a quick explanation:

    Step 1. Rename all your .html pages to .php
    Step 2. Open notepad and paste the common html into a document.
    Step 3. Save the common html document as your_title.php
    Step 4. Open the 20 HTML pages and paste this code in the spot where you want the common code to appear:

    <?PHP include("http://yourwebsiteurl.com/your_title.php"); ?>

    Now when you make changes to the your_title.php file, it will update all your pages.
