ASP and HTML questions

  • # April 4, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    I’ve got a layout coded in html, but I need to turn it into ASP. Does anybody know if there’s a way to do something similar to PHP include except with ASP instead? And also how to create a piece of code that allows people to just change the content without having to touch the html codes in the background?

    Do you want to include a sidebar or header/footer in every page and just your content would change?

    If so check into Master Pages. You can create a layout with a content holder were you could put your content that changes from page to page would go.

    thanks, that’s pretty much what I was looking for.

    Glad I could help. I’m actually learning ASP right now. Still on the fence if I like it or not.

    I’m guessing your both talking about rather than classic ASP, as there is no master pages in ASP.

    You can do the following in classic ASP, which is similar to php includes:

    <!–#include file="urfile.asp"–>

    If you are talking about classic ASP and are just starting to learn it… why?? If you have a choice, learn PHP instead.

    Make one master page and paste the code of the layout there,( things like header,menu, sidebar, footer) paste content place holder where you want content of diff. pages.( may be in between header and footer)

    Then include masterpage in diff. pages (which will contain the content like “about us”).

    Oh wow, it’s been a while. I’ve been so busy I haven’t been back here. But thanks guys. I never got around to finishing what I started when I asked this question (I was flooded with exams) but, thanks!

    @box I was supposed to create a site that would run a server that didn’t support PHP.
