Q. What is SSI and how does it work?

A. SSI stands for Server Side Includes, a special set of commands that you can use inside HTML code when creating your website. They let you easily add dynamic elements to your pages such as the current date and time, last modified date, and a users IP address and browser type.

Perhaps the most valuable use for SSI is the ability to include external HTML documents within your page.

Using Server Side Includes
In order to use SSI you must give your html files a .shtml extension instead of the regular .html or .htm extension. You can then place these commands between special comment tags within your HTML code. A typical SSI command looks like this: Remember that what your code looks like will be different from what is displayed on screen.
