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.

Hi Everyone,
            I am having a problem with a virtual file include. 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?
