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...

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/ ).If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!
