Chapter 16. Working with Library Items

IN THIS CHAPTER

One of the challenges facing web developers is that of repeating content on their websites. Navigation menus, company logos, copyright notices, and so on are all pieces of functionality consistently applied across an entire site, yet until now, there's been no central interface for globalizing that content to prevent the tedious task of opening every page and making the same change across every page. Enter library items and server-side includes. Library items provide a way to create the functionality once and then share that functionality across multiple pages on your site. When the time comes to make updates, you make the change once in the central library item file, save your work, update your site, and changes instantly trickle down to the files in your site that use the library item.
