Something that I thought of while talking with Dylan Reinhold: The
DragonFly site is somewhat overengineered at this point. The pages are
created dynamically, but the only direct benefit now is highlighting the
current page. Eventually there will be more pages than can be displayed in a side menu,
so unless there's an upcoming need for program output on every page, it may
be better to use apache server side includes instead and stick to CGI when
the page demands it. Opinions? Matt, would you be willing to turn on
server side includes?

Since the pages are static, why not write a little script to grab the cgi output for each page, translate the links from pagename.cgi to pagename.html then write it to a .html file ....it would take about two minutes to do and it wouldn't require any additional apache features to be turned on ...

Yes that would work, but we want to keep the left hand menu in it's own. so when an item is added or removed you don't have to edit all the web pages.
Or are you saying to keep the *.cgi pages edit them and recreate the site after changes are made?
