Content from external file?


Is it possible to reference an external HTML file for the contents of the AutoScroller, rather than have the actual HTML in-line for every page that displays the AutoScroller?


Using SSI (server-side includes), it is very well possible to have the content for the scroller coming from an external file.

You'll find basic information about SSI at, but a simple search in Google will return lots of links about this subject.

Marja Ribbers-de VroedWell, what's there to tell?

I worked as a software engineer for a well-known Dutch software company for about 10 years. But then I decided I did not want to work there anymore.
Since then, I've been working with my husband in our own company.

I "discovered" web development early 2000, and I soon found out that I could actually create my own extra (DHTML) features in Dreamweaver by building custom extensions.
My first extension was Cross-browser AutoScroller, but I've developed several other ones since then.
