Justin, As Anton mentioned, basically tweak your configs - However you did not mention which "version" of the server you are running - and I have not looked at our configs, but, I had a similar opportunity here with a "static" menu and the cgi building the rest of the page on the fly - Here is what I did (right or wrong - just another thought) I keep the menu stuff in a text file also, but then I just write out to the html in the cgi via reading in the text source file - I do this also for copyright, and all my "static" information on the dynamic pages. As I stated, right or wrong, works pretty slick. HTH Mark A.

I am creating a set of web pages for our own use. These pages will have a set of menu options on the left side of the screen. These options will all be the same throughout the pages. So what I have done is created the menu options as a text file. I use a virtual include like <!--#include virtual="/customer_service/sidemenu.txt"-->, to copy the menu html source onto the page. This works great when the include is on a static web page. Here's the problem, I have a CGI program that writes a list of item categories. The HTML it uses has the include in it. When the program runs, it doesn't recognize the include. I think this is because the source is loaded into the memory and it is not treated as a standard "static" page. Is there a way around this?
