Viewers might recall that I was haunting this forum with questions concerning pop out menus recently. Well, am happy to advise that I have those working to my satisfaction and now have only to get them blessed by my partner who has been away for 3 weeks.
Now I have another problem which is how do I proceed from here. I have made a template and have spent hours copying the material from the former "xxxx.htm" pages into "xxxxx.shtml" pages. This is a very time consuming project as I have well over a thousand pages in all.
One thing is that the new pages have a "layout.css" file controlling part of the page however I have been just copying the bulk of the page (with tables and all the mistakes) into the contents block of the new page. The result is that I end up with menu I want but still the site is and will be filled with crap pages until I can slowly add new pages using css layout and <div>s (table free, hopefully).
I have tried inserting the "<!--#include virtual="../CSS_Folder/menuv.txt"--> into the existing pages in place of the present nav table which has made with tables but this results in the page going completely wonky.
An example of the new page is http://www.allaboutmarmaris.com/Deniz_Cafe_Restaurant/Deniz_Cafe_Restaurant_Index.shtml
A page with the old style nav table is:
I would really really appreciate some help and advice as to what I should do to get the new SSI code into the existing pages without copying and pasting as I have done so far.
Is there any simple code that could be inserted in the existing that would result in something similiar to the new style page shown above.
Please note that I know relatively little about coding so please keep it simple and clear.
I would like to suggest to any one younger then I that they start with the basics and work forward. My way of working backwards has been a nightmare.
I think this is the correct place but please feel free to move to a more appropriate forum if I am wrong.
Best regards to all
