Easier Site Maintenance
I am looking for some suggestions. I have a multi-page site: www.geociteis.com/eksoothsayer
I have the same nav. bar on each page. When I need to change the nav. bar, I currently have to go into each page individually and make the change. I figure - There has to be an easier way!
But what is it? Frames? CSS? I am new to HTML, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

An include of some sort would probably be best.
Heres some links for tutorials on includes-

Thank you, Dean. I will check out those links.
I haven't even *thought* about search engines yet!

in case your server does not allow ssi then going with php would be best as the spiders can read that.

1) asp or some other scripting language
3) include the menubar on each page
-css only affects the presentation of the page, not the data itself. (ie pagecolor, tablewidth etc)

Thank you, everyone. I am not sure what, if any, languages Geocities allows. I will have to check.

geocities only allows html and jscript. dunno if it supports SSI, i think most servers have it on as default or something. if it does then u can include the menu on each page u want it to appear, or just use frames.
<!-- #INCLUDE FILE="url/filename.htm" -->
including is the best and easiest, as some people have problems dealing with frames
