    hey... I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I believe it it. :cry:

    I'm trying to make a site, and with it I am

    a) trying to make a log in area just for me, where I can...

    b)update the news area and such... and also...

    c)upload any new items I might have, such as drawings and such into a streamline type photogallery.

    My main question is how would I make it be able to be logged onto, make it secure for just me... and make fields that are updateable for text and pictures alike? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Well there are a bunch of Content Management Systems (CMS) out there that you can download for free. If you want to truly build it yourself, then the first step I would take is to search WDF for CMS and / or secure login.

    Actually, a username/password is easy enough to set up. This can all be done by PHP, and to secure the password, just make clever use of the md5(); function. I recently finished an identical project, and it was not as tricky as it sounds.
    Whoth steps forth to mock the teal? Whom couldst say a color superior!

    Proclamith me, it cannot be done.

    There are hundreds of free content management systems on www.hotscripts.com
    or there is this pretty cool little tutorial on Sitepoint that I found brilliant.
