    Hi guys,

    I was watching one of the mockup-to-website videos and the CSS-tricks dev said for the menu’s it’d be best to use an "include" command in order to not have the same code on every page.

    I’m building my site locally on my computer right now and have tried to research this myself. I moved my menu code from my html file into a file called "menu.ssi".

    the code i put into my HTML document is: <!–#include virtual="menu.ssi"–>

    I’ve also saved the html file as a .shtml file and have both files in the same directory. I’ve created a file called htaccess.txt and have these lines of code in it and have saved it in the same directory as the others:

    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddHandler server-parsed .html
    AddHandler server-parsed .shtml
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes

    However, it is not loading the content from menu.ssi at all.

    What am i doing wrong?


    i’m creating the sign locally on my pc before uploading to the server
    is there anything locally that i can set to enable ssi?


    windows doesn’t allow me to name the file ".htaccess", an extension with no file name
    am i missing something? it’s a windows 2000 server
