Hello, quick question…

 

The above is a section from my site, it makes up the links found down the left hand navigation column. As there are an ever-increasing number of pages, but all of them share this code in common.

 

I assume that there is a way of calling the links from an external file so that I can change just one file and have the changes cascade across the site.

 

How do I format the text for both the lines of code to call in the external links and how do I format the lines of code in the external file?

 

And lastly will any of this be affected by being used on HTML and PHP pages???

If you are making your site in PHP then this should work wonders:

<?php include(includes/nav.php); ?>

With nav.php being a page that holds all of your nav links. Alternatively, you could go to the HTML area on the Insert bar and select "Include File" and select an HTML file for a pure-HTML solution.
