    New to the forums, hello all! I'm just wanting to make a website where an admin can log in from somewhere on the website and type and it will display it updated every few seconds. I also want it to have forums, and a place where it displays older days texts. How would I go about doing this? Thanks ahead of time.

    strange ...
    Do you mean it updates "as they type", or updates when they click "Post Reply", like this forum?
    There are free forum systems, like phpBB, or Simple Machines.

    It updates "as they type", yes.

    Like as I was typing this reply you could see me typing it word per word.

    Why would someone want to do that? What would your purpose be?

    I'm not sure, just to do it I suppose. It hasn't been done that I'm aware of.

    I would think it could be done with an active-x plug-in or .exe download.
    You would have a hard time convincing someone to install it though.

    With normal HTML, the viewer would have to be on a continuously updating page.
    That would be really annoying to watch.

    Okay, then how would I just go about setting up a forum for now like this, where the person could update the entries every day and there would be a light somewhere that showed when the user was online on the website.

    With areas where people could talking like we are doing on here below the different entries.

    Edit: Something that shows how many active viewers there were would be cool too.

    I think I'm just going to try to go with a forum like this for now where people can sign up and post on the persons posts and everything. Obviously want there to be an ability to assign administrator to certain levels, etc. Is there a specific tutorial you'd recommend to show me how to do this, and maybe some recommended hosts? Thanks
