    I'm relatively new to site design, so have come across a problem or 10...

    I need to design a site that's likely to have 100 pages or more. I need to be able to referene each page, so I can't use frames else I will lose navigation frames etc.

    I can make a template page and then just use this for each of the pages, thats great - but I just know that somewhere down the line... a new link will be required, or some kind of change. I don't then want to have to change 100+ pages if I can helpt it.

    Is there any easy solution to this? The less learning required the better, but I am happy to try and pickup new languages if it will save me time in the long run.

    Could I create a navigation page, and then somehow reference this in a table somehow?

    I am grateful for any help that can be offered. Although not a total novice, I come from a design background as opposed to a techie one, so please bare this in mind when replying. I know basic HTML, I've copt'n'pasted the odd javascript and got it working - but could not write the code from scratch if that's any indication of my level.

    Software I use is Frontpage 2000, and the website will sit on a machine running MIIS (not sure of version, assume latest).

    Do you know if this installation of IIS supports PHP?

    If the server you are going to host it on supports: PERL, PHP, ASP, SSI or any server side language then it can be easily done.

    I fired up the admin utility and looked around and could not find PHP anywhere, although did see VBScript and Javascript enabled.

    Is there somewhere I should be looking for this specifically?

    Assume for a second the server doesn't have the extensions installed, how do I go about correcting this? Is it something I might find on the million MSDN CDs we have lying around in here? hehe

    What we're both getting at is that with a server-side language, particurally one so simple (and having a forum here ) as PHP, you can very easily do what you want.

    PHP is easier to read IMHO but each to his own. Whichever (s)he decides to install we can still help with
