The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.

Where I’m at

This say it all:

“Maintenance of a content-driven site can be a real pain, too. Many sites (perhaps yours?) feel locked into a dry, outdated design because rewriting those hundreds of HTML files to reflect a new design would take forever. Server-side includes (SSI’s) can help alleviate the burden a little, but you still end up with hundreds of files that need to be maintained should you wish to make a fundamental change to your site.”

Yep, that’s the problem in a nutshell.

Onward I go.
