    Hello there.

    I am re-working my website, and im looking for a bit of advice.
    My site is going to be more regularly updated etc, and on the frontpage it will be literally filled with some news, kind of like a blog.

    Now, on the right hand side, I would also like it to say "Top 5 News" or something similar (the exact wording doesnt matter at the moment), so im guessing that I will need to create some sort of blog or something right?

    How could i start off by doing this etc..

    This is sort of what I am after. But on the right hand side it will have the latest updates and what not...

    Thanks for any help

    use a blogging system. Much easier and faster. www.wordpress.org this is a great one, it's free and easy to install.

    Blogger is decent and easy to set up plus it is free:

    http://www.blogger.com/start

    This has a lot of options, they have both a free and pay-for version:

    https://secure.pmachine.com/download.php

    But Blogger is a good one to start out with...

    Good luck!

    MovableType's (www.movabletype.org) good too; plus you could probably get away with using the free version.

    Ooooh, I forgot about MovableType, that is a good one... a bit more elegant than blogger in my opinion... MovableType would be my first choice (actually, a simple PHP flat-file news script would be my very first pick...)

    I have not tried www.wordpress.org, that could be good too... A lot of options!
