Simplifying your site with Server Side Includes

Conclusion

Server Side Includes can save you a lot of time with a big website, and a thoughtful approach to SSIs can also help you avoid the risk that you will miss pages when you are updating (so most of your site has the new information while a few pages don't). SSIs are well worth some effort, especially given how easy they are to set up.
