    Hey Guys,
    Pleaseeeeeeee help.

    I agreed to add a few pages to a site that has over 900 pages. I added them but theres a problem. There is an "accordion submenu" on the left of every page and I don't know how to get my new pages to appear in this "submenu" (on every page). It is a realllll old HTML site, but I can't believe they log-in to each page one-by-one and change the menu, the menu appears to be the exact same on every page. Yet, when I check the page source there is no iFrame and there is no reference to the location of this menu.

    I don't see how this can be, does anyone know what I should be looking for. Basically I can't imagine adding the new page to the submenu of each and every page - what am I missing. This is Unix.

    Help!

    Load all the links up into a txt file and put them on the sidebar, iframe all your 900 pages into the content and switch the src into ur iframe's src. If I have understood your situation, this is the easiest solution. 900 pages are too much to edit manually.

    licorne101 you should re-read the OP.

    OP, there isn't an easy way to help you unless we saw what you're working with. It's there somewhere, you just have to find it. One good way might be to install firebug and right click on the menu and inspect that part of the code. This gives you the HTML source of the menu, and you can choose some unique element of it to try to see if you can find that in one of the other (older) pages. It might be a pain to track down, but it's there....
