When a user asks for a document a document ID is passed as well, so I know what he wants to see. I split up my layout in 3 areas (td's) and want to include code in it depending on the document id. I don't like to edit my file everytime I want to add a page (where page means the html or asp code for one of the areas) to it. I thought of storing the name of the include files in a database, so it knows what file to include, but I've got some difficulties with that. I can't include files dynamically with #include
(so I should edit the file when a new page is added). If I use response.redirect or response.transfer to include a file I can't use any parameters in the include file defined in my total page. If I use session variables, It won't work when cookies are not enabled. So, that is no option.
So I came to the conclusion not to use include files but store the code of the include file in case of the location of the include file in the database (in a memo field). But that would make it a very large database and I think it is not a very fast solution.
I'm still looking for better solutions, who knows what the best way is to dynamically include my content. (objects like fso are not enabled)
