    I want to show messages in square fame on my web site that will update to new message every 5-10 seconds and preferably load them from some file which is easily editable.
    Any app/script that can do this?

    Use <iframe> for the square frame,
    and then use Javascripting to "target" that iframe with a timed program.

    The message can be called by Javascripting via a PHP script.
    That PHP script can open a text file and display the message.

    MrVon ...

    There are many other things you didn't mention.
    Important things that will result in different answers.

    1) What do you mean by "the message"?
    One line, a paragraph, many different paragraphs?

    2) What are the messages ... text, graphics, articles?

    3) How do the messages get there?

    4) What is your website about, and can we see it?
    Provide us with a link.

    I can give a step by step guide, but not without knowing more about it.
    It would end-up being a big waste of time if your project was not what I was thinking.
