    Hi there. I'm helping a small non-profit redesign their site and I am looking to leave them with a method to easily edit a small area on the front page. Like for news and events.

    What i'm looking for is something with blog like function, you know, Log in, edit or add, and be done. With no chance in harming the rest of the site layout

    After reading this forums for awhile I saw Edit-Point suggested, but that isn't going to work. To easy to mess things up, and not very user friendly. (these people aren't that computer savy)

    Thanks for any input.

    If it is just one area that needs to be updated then developing your own system (or someone else doing it for you). may be the way to go.

    The benefit of this method is you decide where the content is.

    Are you familar with server side programming?

    Hehe, no I don't know anything about programming. I just know enough about websites to be dangerous It's just going to be a simple website, nothing fancy.

    I have a script laying around, but.... I totally forgot that my domains were due to be renewed (I blame santa) and I have nowhere to test :\

    Your host will need PHP support though. Well any server side support, but my solution is written in PHP.

    If it's simple update for static pages, you can train them to do the job with a HTML editor like NVU. NVU is free (www.nvu.com). All they need to do is to change some texts in different areas, save the file and upload it to the server. It is very simple. You can even create a mpg tutorial video to show them how to do this. Some of my clients have been using NVU to update their web sites. It works very well.

    You could use a client side CMS. No server side scripting or WYSIWYG editor to worry about. Certain tools can be used to embed text in the middle of any site and the user just needs to run an automated upload routine to make it live.
