Default How to go about it?

I have been designing/building websites for over 12 yearsuntil 4 years ago when I just stopped doing it anymore. Now, Iím in a situationthat Iíll need to do a bit work again. And I need your advicesince dreamweavers capabilities changed so much since ďthose" years. I have anetwork of distributors and need to create for each one of them their ownwebsite that shares the same look, layout, content, menus, etc. The onlydifferent, ďpersonalizedĒ part is going to be their personal info with photo inthe right side column. I thought about placing each distributor in separate folderĖ like in domainname.com/john, domainname.com/terry , etc. Whatís the best approach without duplicatingthe same pages/files for each folder? Iíll do frequent updates toarticles/content so I want to do it once for all. In older times we used javascript to emulate similar functions, but it was a lot of manual work. Has thelatest Dreamveaver some of those functions automated so itís easier to applyit, if java script or html5 would be your suggestion? I any case, Iíll greatly appreciate any of your suggestion.

Thank you for your quick reply. Yes, it makes sense to me, too. I also heard somebody mentioned that they did that without database. Would that mean they put contant in one folder and called it for each page?

Agree with Ed about a database (CMS) being the best option but you could use PHP includes as well.
