View Full Version : SSI the way to go?

04-22-2011, 12:44 AM
hi guys,
im building a portfolio site for someone to show off their photography and they want to be able to update the site themselves when they have new photos or info to put up.
The site will have thumbnails of the images on the gallery page that when clicked, will open up the full size image, pretty simple.
Im just not sure how to go about making this possible for him to update himself? I was thinking some sort of SSI maybe? I tested it out for the bio page, just calling a text document and while it shows up in dreamweaver it doesnt work when i upload the page. Im pretty new to working with SSI so am i doing anything wrong here? I've looked around and tried changing the extension to things like shtm. and shtml. but its still not showing up online.

Also, will this be a good way of making the gallery images updatable? Or is there a better way to go about it?
Thanks guys for any help.
