DW & FP Crossover - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Just switched from FrontPage (please, no rotten eggs) - but one function I really enjoyed from FP was the Shared Borders - allowing me to define a menu layout once and it automatically was a part of every page on the site. Is there a way to do something/anything similar for DW? I really dread going page-by-page on a 100+ page site to cut/paste - but in all the doentation and quick(blindingly quick) browsing of this forum and others I have not seen a reference for this. Any assistance is appreciated. -- Clint...

    Default DW & FP Crossover

    Just switched from FrontPage (please, no rotten eggs) - but one function I
    really enjoyed from FP was the Shared Borders - allowing me to define a menu
    layout once and it automatically was a part of every page on the site.

    Is there a way to do something/anything similar for DW? I really dread
    going page-by-page on a 100+ page site to cut/paste - but in all the
    doentation and quick(blindingly quick) browsing of this forum and others
    I have not seen a reference for this.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Tedious? - ugh.

    But, (new to DW remember) will this mean that if I update the 'template' it
    will auto update that info on all these pages?

    Or you could create a menu and turn that into a ssi (serverside include... I
    bet a +100 page website is using some kind of programing langauge)

    You could try this very easy tutorial (asp)
