    Hey all,

    I hope i'm in the right place.

    I'm just starting out with web design and i'm basically using HTML.
    My question is:

    I would like to have a page where people can upload stories and photos of themselves, by themselves.

    Could someone let me know how?

    Many thanks for your time


    Alex

    To allow others to edit the content of your website, you first have to consider these factors

    1: Who can edit the website?
    2: How will I store the data? (file or database)

    I will be assuming you will have some kind of password protecting script.

    With this, you can only allow users who are logged in to edit/update/post content.

    You will need to learn a server side language, like ASP or PHP.

    Personally speaking I would use a database solution. This way you can edit the data through the website and through tools
    such as PHPMyAdmin and ASP equivelants.

    So, browse this web site, as there is a lot of users (me included) who seeked advice on having a similar setup.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks very much.

    I don't mind learning a new language, in fact i look forward to it. i've used ASP before but i just want to use html at the mo so i guess it's PHP. The Database does sound like the best idea! Thanks for your help!

    Take care

    Um... whoa whoa whoa... ASP and PHP do very similar things, and neither of the two are HTML. They're both server-side scripting languages, they just work a little differently. I'm personally a fan of PHP, but don't start using it under the misconception that it's HTML. You'll still need support on the server for PHP, and the syntax is still significantly different. More information on PHP at the PHP website
