How would include a html file

Hello.

 

I'd just like to enquire, how would I include one html file in another?

 

I'm using a bootstrap theme. I've created a menu, which I would like to include on a few more pages I'll be creating.

 

I have used the old method - <!-- webbot bot="Include" U-Include="mainmenu.html" TAG="BODY" --> but I can't get this to work.

 

I've also used iframe but all I get is a blank square.

 

Could anyone please help?

 

Thank You.

I've never heard of "webbot" or anything like that before it's probably a feature used by some proprietary software. HTML does not have the ability to include other pages in it, you need a server-side programming language to do that. PHP is among the most popular server-side languages.

Hello Ingolme,

 

Thank you for you reply.

It's been about 8-10 years since I built a web site, so things may have changed some-what.

 

The line I specified above, was used when I used FrontPage 2000/2002.

 

Now, all attempts to use include in html has failed.

I've used the guide on w3schools's site and I can't get to this to work for some reason.

 

I just don't know what else to try.

I'd welcome any help.

 

Thank You.

Including code has never been a native functionality of HTML, you will need a server-side programming language to do it. Most likely the FrontPage editor used to replace those tokens with code from other files before exporting the files for the web.
