    my main page consists of frames.
    i'm using ssi to include copyright info, tos, and a privacy statement at the bottom of each page.

    the ssi is working on all regular (ie non-frame) pages, but it doesn't seem to be called or parsed on the main page.

    a look at the source shows the ssi call just sitting there, doing nothing.
    has anyone dealt with this before?
    i didn't think it mattered if an ssi was called from within a framed page, but i might be wrong.

    i suppose i can just use the actual html for that one page but i'd rather just be able to use ssi since it's used through out the rest of the site.


    BTW -- this is my 100th post -- yey for me !!

    here it is.

    http://www.bostoncreative.net/html/welcome.html

    notice how along the bottom it says fine print, copyright, privacy, terms of service ??
    that is actual html code.
    now, if you look at the source, you'll see the ssi call.

    so if the ssi was getting called you'd see two(2) nav-bars. (the way it's coded now)

    does that make sense?

    In order for your server to process a SSI, the file extension needs to end with .shtml. Or depending on how your server is set-up, you can use .asp, .cfm, .jsp, or .php

    .html will not trigger your server to process the include.
