Hi,

I have a potential client now who has a very simple website and he needs someone to teach him how to change some text on his site regularly.

How would i do this ?

A simple PHP form and then the page takes the text from a database ?

Thanks.

Thanks but i wasn't asking where i could find a PHP lesson.

Well the idea would be for him to do it online, if he needs me to do this for him I'm sure he has zero knowledge of Dreamweaver.

Thanks anyways.

It's not very practical, but you could use iframes to embed blank HTML pages, and he could just add his text with an FTP client

You were on the right track with your first post. You'd need to store the text in a database. The client would have an administration they can log into, where they could make the updates. Typically, you would provide them with a WYSIWYG editor to make it very user friendly for them.

You can get premade items off of sites, or make a 1 sheet flash doc. and put it in flash code?
