Recently, I've started my new web site ( and already had a problem where i had to change my navigation bar 10 or more times. Every time i had to go over 30+ pages and find and replace them. Then i heard about SSI and thought it was a great idea. Tested my server everything works just great! The only problem is i don't see how it's going to help me next time I'll want to change my navigation bar. I would still have 30+ pages with <!--#include virtual="/something.htm" --> to go over and change them.

Can anybody please explain to me how do they take advantage of using SSI?

Thanks a lot.
