    [COLOR=Purple ]Hey all

    Im fairly new to other languages other than html. Which is the best and easiest way to create a content management website so the owner can change their text info and maybe their images of their website.

    Thanks Nessie [/COLOR]

    Hey Auussie_Nessie

    Well, theres a fair bunch available, them being PHP, ASP, and CFM.

    PHP is fairly quick to pick up, so that could be your best bet.
    See http://hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_an...log/index.html for list of blogs written in PHP.

    Some of them go beyond your needs, so you could try http://planetsourcecode.com

    The best way to change their text? Store all posts (or articles, whatever) in a database table. And use an UPDATE command.

    Good luck.

    HTML is not a language in this context. It's just a way of marking up your output, meaning that even if you mastered PHP/PERL/VB/JSP/or whatever, you would still need HTML to be able to present whatever your script is doing, on the web.

    If you want a full featured CMS system, you'd better go for an opensource variant, free to download.

    A CMS is a fairly complicated thing to make (as would a bulletin board like this one be). If you're just starting out, this would be a monumental task.

    So, in short, if you primarily interested in getting a CMS up and running, download a complete system (free).

    If your primary interest is learning a server scripting language, then buy a book and start practising (reccomend PHP as it's fairly easy to learn, and one of the more powerful languages for web purposes).

    If your interested both in getting a CMS up and running, and learning a scripting language, then download an opensource CMS, and pick an easier task for practising your aquired skills.
