Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Call me stupid, but I don't understand templates in Quanta Plus. Here's what I am trying to do:
I am working on a website. I don't want to use frames, and there is a pretty complex CSS-only navigation with drop down menus, opening a number of subpages.
Now it is perfectly possible that at a later date there might be additions to the menu. I'd rather not have to edit every single page by hand to add that new entry.
Looking at the documentation for templates, it seems that it should be possible to create a template with a pre text including the document head and navigation, and a post text including the foot. But I don't understand how this is supposed to work. Here's what I tried:
1. I created a subfolder 'main' in the project template view under project templates. I opened the properties of the new folder and added the pre and post texts in the appropriate window, checked the mark for including them.
2. I created a blank page and saved it as a document template inside that folder, supposing the text would be added then. It wasn't.
3. I created a new page from the empty template page to see whether the pre and post texts would be inserted then. Nope. I have no idea how and where these texts ever get inserted.
I know that a complete page layout can be saved as a template to work from, but that's not what I have been looking for. The way I read the documentation I suppose the following should be possible somehow, I'm just too daft to get the 'how':
1. A template with pre and post text includes the fixed parts.
2. Various files contain the contents of the individual pages of the site without the fixed parts.
3. The latter can be connected to the former to create the complete pages because the fixed parts are added in front of and after the content of the individual pages. These pages will then be uploaded.
4. Whenever the navigation actually changes, I will only have to edit the pre text of the template to reflect the change, then reconnect the content pages from point 2 and the template to generate the full pages anew, which I will then overwrite the old pages with.
Did I get that right? How can it be done? Or is there a different solution?
