Webhosting Server Side Includes

From AAISP Support Site

Our servers do not offer SSI facilities <!--#include virtual="ssi.htm" --> or <!--#include file="ssi.htm" -->, however you can create the same effect by using Javascript. These notes were submitted by a customer and are here to help you.

How?

First:

Include the following in the <head><head> section of your page

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript" > </SCRIPT>

and

<script type="text/javascript" src="myincludefilename.js"> </SCRIPT>

with your own file name substituted where you want the included text to appear.

Then:

Create a file myincludefilename.js to hold the text you want to output, then insert the text and wrap each line in a document.write(" "); statement.

Remember that in JS any newline characters ends the instruction so every line must be wrapped in a document.write statement.

The javascript file can have any extension, and be held in any folder subject to the usual rules about valid pathnames.

Example: Good

document.write("James Brown is in the office <br>");

document.write("Helen Smith is out of office <br>");

Example: Bad

document.write("James Brown is in the office <br>

"Helen Smith is out of office <br>");

A web search on 'javascript include' will bring up lots more examples.
