Hour 24. Using Server-Side Includes and Adding a Date

Server-side includes (SSI) can save you time and effort when developing a Web site. You create files that are inserted into your Web page by the server when a user accesses the page. The server, where the final Web site is stored, processes a command that you've inserted into your Web page.

Using server-side includes enables the Web server to dynamically place information into your Web pages. Because the processing of the included information happens on the server, you cannot view the file properly without loading it onto the server. Dreamweaver simulates the final appearance of your Web page by displaying the included information in the Document window. Also, Dreamweaver displays the server-side include when you preview your Web page in the browser.

You can also add a last-modified date to a Web page. These dates are a courtesy to your viewers, enabling them to see how current the information is that they are viewing. Dreamweaver can automatically update the last modified date when you make changes to your Web page.
