Menu in a CSS

  mjf123 10:24 28 Feb 2008

I have always used FrontPage 2003 and one its templates which allows a left hand “Shared Border” into which I have been able insert a menu, which when saved immediately updates on all pages.

I have been trying to create a small simple site using a CSS template, but every time I add a new page I have to go back and change the menu on every page individually. Is it possible to create a menu in a css that changes right across the whole site?

Be grateful for any help.

I can only assume that by "shared border", you actually mean a frame: is that the case?

As for style sheets, a site has to be quite large for me to use more than one or two: a site-wide style sheet for common IDs and classes, plus one with specific variations if there are too many to manage in one file. You need to organise your cross-page IDs and/or classes in such a way that one declaration can handle all instances of that particular ID/class and its style requirements.

You may get some help from Pat Geary's site at click here, although it is really for Family Historians.

If you are developing your site in ASP.Net then you can use a Master Page or Web User Control to get around the problem of having to duplicate HTML tags.

A similar effect can be achieved with PHP if you use XSLT templates.
