    update text files easily

    hi everyone -

    i wasn't sure where i should post this question but hopefully someone can help me. I am redesigning this website http://www.crmission.org and basically the guy that i am doing this for wants to be able to have the main text easily updateble by people that do not understand code. does anyone know how i would do this?

    also, what about inclusions? i was thinking about using inclusions for the header and other sections of the page that will be visible throughout the website?

    thanks in advance...

    Hiya,

    Your choices boil down to two -

    • Code a simple text-editing system yourself, using a server-side language like PHP or ASP, then 'include' the text file into the main page.
    • Use a pre-written script from somewhere like www.hotscripts.com


    I highly recommend learning a server-side language if you haven't already. makes it so much easier to do those 'little' things. I recommend PHP if its your first language, very easy to learn ( www.php.net/ ).
