    Another option...

    Dreamweaver allows you to create templates that can be applied to multiple pages. You simply create a template for one type of page layout, and then you can use it over and over for as many pages as possible. When you make a change to the template, it gets applied to all the pages using it.

    Hi,

    I am wondering about the most efficient way to organize and manage a website consisting of multiple pages using the same navigation bars, layout style and etc.

    Please advise. Thank you.

    It depends...if you just need the navbars the same, and won't be serving up dynamic content, just use SSI...

    Otherwise, checkout the PHP/SQL tutorial (Part 5) on the mainpage of SitePoint.com...it'll walk you through databasing your site.

    Dream Templates sound useful, but I usually advise people to use SSI/SQL if possible...always better to be less reliant on a program if possible...

    I agree.

    Personally I prefer SSI. It's easy to implement and it works, but if you get to complex with it, it can really slow things down and I'd go with a database solution.

    I personally use FP includes.. very handy. I update one file, and every page is changed. I realize this is a crappy way of doing this, but I haven't taken the time to learn PHP yet. Yes, I know I should.
