For sites residing in the IU Linux web hosting environment (Webserve), the branding assets can be symbolically linked to the 'gwassets' folder and implemented using the following steps.
Create a symbolic link to the branding assets folder that is under the account 'gwassets' by running the following command:
ln -s /ip/gwassets/wwws gwassets
To use the PHP include method:
<?php include "gwassets/brand/3.2.x/header-iu.html";>
In order to avoid using the dot patterns to match the filenames created in the include path, the following lines should be added to the php.ini file.
The Apache server allows you to place SSI directives that enable including elements on a HTML page. Here is an example of a Server Side Include statement.
<!--#include virtual="../header-iu.html" -->
