I have got a project to maintain a medium size PHP website with 200 pages. But I wondered when I found each and every page is static HTML. Even Top navigation, right navigation, footer is static HTML, and if you want to change a single character in navigation you'll have to change in 200 pages!!!! I want to get rid of unnecessary time killing work & asked my client to go for template but he is not ready to go for.
He is saying templates / includes increases loading time than static HTML. I am very skeptic on his views. Then why people use templates/includes? is it really a hurdle for user experience? Please let me know.
Also let me know why we should use template/includes rather than static HTML.
Due to privacy I wont be able to post the URL. But I need your help.
Thanks & Regards-
