    Alternative to Frames

    The sight: depts.drew.edu/biol
    The problem: We have a Flash and a non-Flash page that department members want to keep up. Currently we have to update/edit each indpendently. We would like to combine the two so we have either a Flash or IMG nav bar and the same text for the main portion of the screen. Nice Frames that are non-scrolling and borderless would make sence, but they are not an option as per university guidelines on accessibility. What can I use other than frames that will load a nav bar and text independently onto another page?

    The page: http://depts.drew.edu/biol
    The problem: There are two independent pages that are essentially mirrors of one another that need independent updates weekly. At first, no biggie. Now it's a big pain. The only difference between the two pages is the NAV bars. Department factulty want to keep both FLAH and Non-flash elements, so eliminating one isn't an option. The problem is also made more complex in that we can't use frames for some reason.

    Any ideas on how I could integrate these pages?

    Thanks,
    -Carl

    You can use Server Side Includes to "modularize" your site and split the content into individually editable sections. Maybe you should consider looking into a CMS (Content Management System), which would allow you and your coworkers to manage the content of the website through an online administrative interface. If you want to manage the content of Flash and HTML simultaneously (and share content), you should look for a CMS with XML data storage and have it customized to work with Flash as well.

    By the way, I merged your posts. In the future, don't double-post the same issue. We all pretty much read all new posts, so you can be certain your issue will be read.

    OK. I just read a little about ssi. It seems a little over my head and based on the design of our network I'm not sure if I can do that.

    We basically just get allocated disk space on the school server through a folder given to us when we log in through Novel.

    Since it is a server folder we only have access to for this sight and not the server itself, is ssi possible.

    And is there any way that something similar might be done through coding alone in javascript?

    Sorry for being a pain, it's just that I've never done anything more complex than putting a javascript clock code onto a page before and I think I took on too much with this project.

    Thanks,
    -Carl
