    Hello everyone... I have volunteering to setup a basic web page for our local hockey association. I have the layout and menu designed now I am searching for ways to allow the executive to edit the content of the pages themselves.

    For example I have page page called Latest News. Obviously this is were they will post the news about the organization.

    So the question is how to create a page that can be easily edited by the user?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Please keep in mind I am a begineer with HTML.

    Currently i am working with Dreamweaver

    The EASIEST way to do this would be to use Server Side Includes. Basically, what you would do is something like this:

    Code:
    <html>
      <head>
      </head>
      <body>
        <h1>News</h1>
        <!--#Include File="news.doc"-->
        <h1>Events</h1>
        <!--#Include File="events.doc"-->
      </body>
    </html>
    Save the page as pageName.SHTML. That will allow the server side includes to work.

    Anyone can then create a word doc with the content of each section and save it over the old one.

    Voila! you now have dynamic content.

    Oops.. wasn't thinking about that. Try exporting using .html files (news.html and events.html), and use those. That should work.

    All the html files need is the content that you want to be dynamic.

    Also, I'm currently working on a javascript / xml freeware engine for dynamic content. If I ever finish it, I'll post it here for everyone.

    Thank you for the reply's .... I am understanding then that there is not an easy way to do this? Ideally a word format would be perfect .... is there any way to do this?

    They include <html> and similar tags and will probably break it, too.
